INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Thousands are expected to attend the visitation and the funeral for IMPD Officer Rod Bradway.
Among those, families of other fallen officers, who will be there to offer support.
Janice Starnes will be one of them.
Her husband, Sergeant Daniel Starnes of the Morgan County Sheriff's Department, lost his life in the line of duty in 2001.
Janice Starnes remembers, perhaps all too well, when a squad car for her husband was draped, signaling the end of a watch.
Because she's lived this, she knows what Officer Bradway's family is going through.
“Take it, a moment at a time. That’s all you’ve got,” said Janice, sitting near a memorial for the three fallen officers with the Morgan County Sheriff's Department. One name, is her husband’s.
“With each day, a tomorrow will come, and then the next tomorrow, then the next tomorrow. With each one of those tomorrows, you'll gain a little bit more strength, and each grasp of strength you have, will give you hope,” she adds.
Janice is thinking of IMPD Officer Rod Bradway’s family.
“I especially want them to know they will get through this. I can’t say that enough. When people said that to me in the beginning, I didn’t want to hear it, I’m not sure I did hear it. But along the line, and along the way, you do,” she said.
She reflects on the fact that yet another officer was shot overnight in Indianapolis.
“My first reaction was you know, not again. Not again. Of course thankfully he's going to be okay, but when does it ever end? When does it end? I’ve got two boys out there,” she said.
Janice's youngest son was on a ride-a-long for college with her husband, Sergeant Daniel Starnes, when her husband was shot by a robbery suspect during a Morgan County traffic stop in 2001.
She says her son was shot as well, and recovered.
Both her sons are now Indiana State Troopers.
“I support them, and I’m very proud of them. They’re my boys, Dan's boys,” she said.
As she prepares to go to another fallen officer's funeral, she extends a survivor's words.
“With each day, there will be a tomorrow,” she said. “They will get through this.”
Janice created the Indiana Fallen Officers Blood Drive the year her husband was shot.
It's run every year since in 92 counties.
She also helped to build that memorial in Morgan County, with both federal funds and those donated by community members.
Janice says she'll attend both the viewing and the funeral Thursday for Officer Bradway.
She’s attended nearly all of funerals for fallen officers in central Indiana, since her husband gave his life.
Most of the state is under a winter storm warning until Saturday.
