For the second time in less than a week, Grace Church Pastor Garett Booth welcomed those attending the funeral service for slain Sergeant Kaila Sullivan.
Friendswood Police Department Chaplain Moe Mays said Sullivan was calm and rationale even in the toughest times.
Sullivan was eulogized by her brother, Jared, and the Nassau Bay Police Chief Tim Cromie.
Following the funeral service, there was a private procession with the casket carried next to a motorcycle through the streets of Nassau Bay.
Nassau Bay Mayor Mark Denman issued a proclamation in her honor. He declared Sunday, December 29, which would have been Sullivan's 16th work anniversary with the Nassau Bay Police Department, as Kaila Sullivan Day in the city.
"Her memory is forever seared in our hearts," said Denman.
Denman said Sullivan was a model employee and an exemplary police officer.
"Kaila was one of the best," Denman said. "She was a peace officer's peace officer."
He said suggestions are already coming in about how to permanently memorialize her.
Sullivan was the first line-of-duty death in the history of Nassau Bay.
Sullivan was killed in the line of duty while arresting a suspect who fled the scene. She was run over by the suspect’s vehicle and died later at the hospital.
