CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- A woman's memory is living on with the Central Point Police Department.
The department posted a message to its Facebook page on Friday, saying it'd received a letter from a local woman. It said her mother, Janie Jedynak, had recently died after a long cancer battle, and was a huge supporter of the police officers.
The letter, sent by Jedynak's daughter Hillary, explained Jedynak covered her vehicle in "Blue Lives Matter" stickers, was a devout Catholic, and prayed for the police every day at 3 p.m.
In the envelope was a blue, sliver and gold "Police Guardian Angel" pin. The Facebook post says Jedynak wore the pin every day, and even had the pin blessed. Hilary wrote she sent the pin to keep officers safe.
The Central Point Police Department says it's honored to receive the pin, and is hanging it up alongside Jedynak's photo in the department.
