BREAKING NEWS Out Of New York… This Is So Sad 😞

Bruce Johnson  RIGHT WING TRIBUNE –

It is with great sadness to report that a New York boy who became the youngest member of the Ithaca Police Department as an honorary officer at the age of 10, has died after a long battle with cancer.

Colin Hayward Toland died at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital on Saturday, and his family wrote this message on Facebook.

From the Officer Colin: The Youngest Member of the Ithaca Police Department Facebook page: 

“Colin Hayward Toland End of Watch 3/17/18: Lieutenant Colin returned to the cosmos in the loving embrace of his family. His passing was more peaceful and gentle than we could have imagined. On his last day, he went outside and felt the sun on his face and the wind in his hair.

He will return to Ithaca for a viewing and calling hours later this week at Lansing Funeral Home and burial at Greensprings Natural Cemetery. Down the road, we will also have celebrations of life in Ithaca and in Memphis. We will announce the specifics once we make the arrangements.

Please carry Colin’s spirit with you in life. Find opportunities to help others, even in small ways. Keep joy and light in your heart, as these will light the darkest pathways.

We would like to thank our St. Jude family for the continued love and support. Everybody here worked to help us create a positive environment to enjoy these last days together as a family.”

FOX News reports that at age two, Toland was diagnosed with an ependymoma brain tumor. And while “he had many wonderful years of remission from the tumor, it returned in early 2015 and spread.”

Toland’s dream was to become a police officer. Despite his illness, the Ithaca Police Department welcomed him to the force on Sept. 12, 2016, where he had been involved with “ongoing training and community policing work.”

The 10-year-old’s first arrest came in December 2016 when he nabbed “The Grinch” at a holiday event in Ithaca for “stealing Christmas.”

“No one steals Christmas while Officer Colin: The Youngest Member of the Ithaca Police Department is on duty.”

“We are all so proud of Colin’s determination and positive spirit as well as the many officers who have embraced Colin, particularly Chief [John] Barber, to whom Colin reported directly until the chief’s retirement in March 2017,” Toland’s family wrote on Facebook.

“His passing was more peaceful and gentle than we could have imagined. On his last day, he went outside and felt the sun on his face and the wind in his hair,” his family said.

Eric Trump mourned Toland’s passing on Twitter, sharing photos of them together:

“We are so saddened by the passing of our dear friend Colin. Colin, you will forever remain in our hearts — you are the reason we will continue to fight so hard for @StJude. As Danny Thomas said, “No child should ever die in the dawn of life”. RIP buddy.”

The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office thanked Toland for his service:

“Our thoughts are with Lt. Colin Toland, his family, and his fellow officers today. We are so appreciative of the positive impact Lt. Colin has had on our community. Thank you for your service. Rest in Peace.”

I know this is a sad story but at the same time the fact that he is being honored by America’s heroes makes the story much more palatable.

Rest in peace little buddy.

God Bless.
