Mark A. Taulbee is “patrolling the streets of heaven,” said Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse.
Cruse, a former law enforcement official, said there will be emptiness in coming days without Taulbee. Speaking Friday at the fallen officer’s funeral, the mayor said the community must move on.
“Today is the day, if you are or have been in law enforcement, a day that we seldom think about but never forget about. A day that all too often becomes a reality to us and our families as it has today,” he said.
