GREENFIELD — Considering the circumstances, the atmosphere outside the Hancock County FOP Monday afternoon was surprisingly cheerful.
Several dozen people gathered under a large shade tree to break ground for the Hancock County Fallen Officers Memorial. Most in attendance were there to remember a lost husband, father, friend or colleague.
Survivors celebrated the lives of all three fallen Hancock County officers: Malcolm Grass, Dannie Garrison and Will Phillips.
The group also welcomed 30 cyclists participating in the 2012 Cops Cycling for Survivors ride.
