A Quilt for Mother’s Tears

quilt-for-mothers-tearsThe mission of A Quilt for Mother’s Tears, Inc. is to help comfort the mothers of police officers killed in the line of duty by creating quilts to honor the brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities.

A quilt will be given to mothers of the fallen officers who have died in the line of duty. These quilts will be presented during the National Police Week held in Washington D.C.

The Officer Down Memorial Page lists  the following numbers of line of duty deaths
2014   151
2015   145
2016   148
2017   125
Honor quilts have been distributed to over 500 fallen officer families.  The distribution line begins with the officer’s first family mother. If she is deceased it goes to the father, the line of succession continues to a sibling.  If none of these are living the quilt is presented to the officer’s department.
