First, some quick background.

On Wednesday, March 8, 2006 Police Officer Matthew Melchionda, 31, died in the line of duty from injuries sustained in a serious motor vehicle accident.  Officer Melchionda was responding to assist detectives with an investigation.

On Monday, March 13, 2006, Matthew was laid to rest and honored with a full inspector's funeral.

Below is a link sent to us from numerous site visitors.

A New Jersey-based newspaper, The Courier News, assembled a photo and audio essay about the funeral that is truly one of the finest we have ever seen.

One warning.  You might lose it watching this.

Take a look.

(If the above link doesn't work try )

And thank you to all of those at the Courier News who helped with this project for giving Police Officer Melchionda, his fellow officers, and his family such a wonderful tribute.
