Heaven's Heroes
6 October 2013 | by jjvisllcSee all my reviews

I have not only seen the movie, I attended the funeral of officer Hill. This is a wonderful movie about faith in the face of death. It is my understanding this film has been used over the years as a training film for new officers. This story happened in Des Moines, IA. He and his wife attended the same church we went to and we are still in touch with Cindy and her father Buck.

Both Cindy and Buck stand on and live their life for their Lord an Savior Jesus Christ and are a true testimony of faith in action, or walking the walk and not talking the talk.

Highly highly recommend it
