It was such a lovely sight last night that I had to get a few pictures. I hardly did the moment justice, but the sense of community in East Rochester can really be something to experience. Somber faces of those who knew Sgt. Pierson personally mixed with children innocently laughing and playing in the gazebo in a completely unique blend we can hope never to see again.
