Indianapolis - Thousands of people packed Conseco Fieldhouse for the final public farewell to Indianapolis Metro Police Officer David Moore.
Moore, 29, was shot in the line of duty during a traffic stop last week. He died last Wednesday from his injuries.
IMPD Senior Chaplain Phil Bacon led the call to worship.
"In this service today we will honor the life and memory of this wounded fallen warrior," said Bacon. "On behalf of Officer Moore's family, we want to take just a moment to thank the citizens of this great city and the citizens beyond our city for their overwhelming outpouring of love and support during these past ten troubling days."
The 3,500 plus people who packed Conseco Fieldhouse came in droves for the tribute to fallen Officer Moore. They not only included local, regional and out-of-state law enforcement officers, but strangers who bonded with Moore's parents through grief.
"I got two young men the same age as this guy and it just breaks my heart to see him go out like that. I am just heartbroken," said Juanita Garnett, funeral attendee.
"Their strength through this whole thing has been amazing," said Lt. Thomas Black, IMPD.
The Honor Guard lined the entrance as officers carried in Moore's flag-draped casket. His parents, Spencer and IMPD Sgt. Jo Moore and other family, received the same welcome.
The grieving mother wore her son's letter jacket from Roncalli High School where he played for the Rebels. Moore's fellow Bomb Squad members proudly displayed their work vehicle for a backdrop.
Retired IPD Lt. Spencer Moore gave the eulogy for his son, and asked worshipers to be patient as he tried to deliver his speech "with dignity and not emotion."
"You have heard a lot said about David by those that have preceded me. Jo and I are forever grateful for the sharing of those heartfelt observations," said Moore.
He directed the audience to look at the funeral program, which featured a hand-written list written by a school-age David explaining what he was thankful for.
"I think the note sets the trend by which David lived his life," said Moore.
"You can also read that no matter how hard evil tries, it cannot dim the light of such a bright life. Jo and I have received countless letters and notes about David. We will cherish all of them."
Officer Moore was remembered as a dedicated officer who was willing to put his life on the line.
"He enjoyed protecting and serving. He believed in you so much always and did his best," said Moore.
"This has taught me a lot how short and precious life is," said Rick Kassel, IMPD chaplain.
The fallen officer's passing is far more reaching than home court.
"It affects all of us in what we are doing and how we come together as one team," said Derek Towle, Greenfield Police Department.
The loss of an officer hits home especially hard for the Greenfield police force. A Greenfield officer, Will Phillips, was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver last fall.
A rare show of emotion from the city's director of public safety underscored the impact of this loss.
"A man of courage, strength, wisdom - he was committed to honor and duty and to that end it claimed his life," said Frank Straub, wiping away tears.
However, just like his parents, many at the funeral services felt that the 29-year old would have wanted his coworkers to celebrate his life, especially since he had a heart for police work.
"Indianapolis is better off for having had David in uniform. Although we may grieve as a city, ultimately we're uplifted by David's life," said Mayor Greg Ballard.
"The lessons I learned made me want to be a better person, a better police officer," said IMPD Chief Paul Ciesielski.
"He is going to a better place and serving in a bigger and better war, fighting out here for us, watching over us from above," said Sgt. Kim Young, IMPD.
The last public tribute to Officer Moore came in a final salute as family and friends released balloons in his honor.
Officer Moore was the first to die in the line of duty since the police merger forming IMPD. They had planned a public procession and burial at Crown Hill cemetery, but the ice storm cancelled that. Some of the service took place at Conseco Fieldhouse. A private burial will take place at a later time.
