If you need proof that there really are plenty of amazingly good people in Rockford, here ya go.

This story gave me all kinds of "good feels," and I love that the officer had no idea cameras would be on hand to capture his sweet gesture for this Rockford family. Perhaps a tissue or two would be a good thing to grab before watching this video.


To Winnebago County Sheriff's Deputy Joseph Boullard I say, God bless you! You certainly are taking the "to serve and protect" thing above and beyond, and it's so touching to see!
