    Though I did not get to work with him, I never heard anything but love and admiration towards him even after he left our department. A great officer and a great friend to many. R.I.P. Officer Padron, we have the watch Sir.

    Thank you, Austin and public safety depts from all over Texas and the U.S., for showing Jaime's family that he died a hero!

    My partner and I were speechless throughout most of the motorcade. I had no idea that many people would be out. There was a fire truck on every single bridge. Traffic stopped on the opposite side of the interstate and people got out of their cars and saluted. Firefighters, tow truck drivers, Marines, road construction crews.. everyone lined the sides of the roadway.
    In less than one week, I think I experienced both the lowest and the highest points of this job.

    Edit: video footage is not mine. just something i found on youtube
