I'm not sure if setting a "Fallen Hero Table" is a nationwide Texas Roadhouse tradition, but what they have done at the Rockford restaurant to honor Deputy Jacob Keltner literally took my breath away.

If you go to Texas Roadhouse on Walton St. today, tomorrow or Wednesday, you will see a table set with a single place setting, a single chair, and a single rose. When you see it, I hope you say a single prayer of peace for the family and friends of McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy Jacob Keltner who lost his life while serving a warrant in Rockford last week.

Texas Roadhouse Rockford, thank you for doing this. It's absolutely beautiful, and I hope it brings a moment of reflection for a grieving community.
