Thursday was a heavy day at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Members of the NYPD and New Yorkers everywhere came to pay their respects to Officer Jason Rivera.
The 22-year-old and his 27-year-old partner Wilbert Mora were both killed in an ambush last Friday while responding to a domestic call in Harlem.
Though our hearts were heavy as we said goodbye to Det. Jason Rivera, that sadness was met with immense gratitude at the sea of first responders & New Yorkers who came to honor our fallen hero. Whether it was on 5th Ave, the overpasses or @FDNY hoisting flags—the NYPD thanks you. pic.twitter.com/ycuwuKShUt
