CLEVELAND (WJW)– The Tunnel to Towers Foundation paid off the home mortgages for the families of two fallen Ohio officers.
The organization, which was created to honor a New York City firefighter who died on Sept. 11, 2001, visited the families of Bellefontaine Police Officer Craig Comstock and Cleveland Police Officer Vu Nguyen.
Nguyen, a 20-year veteran of law enforcement, died on July 6, 2018, days after collapsing during a training exercise. He left behind his wife, Holli, and their two daughters.
“My family and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It is impossible to fully express in words what a blessing this is to me and my children. It feels like a huge weight was lifted… My children and I are blessed to see my husband’s sacrifice be remembered,” Holli Nguyen said.
