TULSA, Oklahoma - Family and officers are mourning after an honorary Tulsa Police officer passed away Sunday, July 23, 2017.
Aaliyah Alexander was battling advanced kidney cancer.
Officer Popsey Floyd posted on Facebook saying:
“Today we mourn not for the family, but with them. This morning Officer Aaliyah was called home to heaven. She has received her new body. She is no longer in pain.
“Please keep her family lifted up.
“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may also be.”
