Hundreds Gather For Officer McCrudden's Funeral

The 48-year-old police officer died on Tuesday.


Clarkstown Police Officer Terrance “Terry” McCruden, of New City, died Tuesday and was buried Saturday in St. Anthony Cemetery in Nanuet. A service was held before the burial at St. Augustine's Church in New City.

A portion of Main Street was shut down in front of St. Augustine. A New City Fire Department fire truck was parked on the street with a large American flag hung from the bottom of the truck’s outstretched ladder. Hundreds of police officers lined up outside the church while a motorcade of police vehicles, the flower car, hearse and family and friends’ cars made their way to the church. A pipe and drum band played music while the casket, draped in an American flag, was carried into the church.

After the service, the motorcade made its way to Nanuet for the burial. The hundreds of police officers were transported in two school buses.

To the family of the deceased I am truly sorry for your lost, It’s never easy to lose someone you love. The pane can sometimes be unbearable at the time, but there is hope! it is human and natural to grieve and we should not feel ashamed to let our grief be manifest. Even when tempered by the hope of the resurrection, the death of a loved one is still a traumatic loss, which is deeply felt. YES resurrection! Jesus performed that unforgettable resurrection in front of many eyewitnesses. It was a token of the future resurrection that he had predicted on an earlier occasion, when he said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [the Son of God’s] voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”—John 5:28, 29 With this HOPE you can see your loved ones again. When death strikes a loved one, for example, hope can make a world of difference to the survivors. The apostle Paul wrote to the Christians at Thessalonica: “We do not want you to be ignorant concerning those who are sleeping in death; that you may not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope.”—1 THESSALONIANS 4:13.
