First Christian Church in Roanoke played host to the annual Law Enforcement Memorial service last week, with officers from numerous jurisdictions on hand to pay tribute to fallen comrades.  Many took part in the Roll-Call ceremony by placing a rose in the large shield, situated in front of the altar. Reverend William L. Lee, Pastor of Loudon Avenue Christian Church, moved many in the audience to tears during his keynote speech.
