The Family of Officer Perry Renn would like to send our sincerest gratitude to all organizations, companies, groups and individuals that participated in honoring our loved one, Officer Perry Renn.
Thank you to Banker’s Life and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for providing the venue and beautiful music to which we were able to gather as a family and community to remember an Officer, husband, son and friend. To both Crown Hill Cemetery and the IMPD Honor Guard, we give you thanks for providing, arranging and participating in such a prestigious and heart touching ceremony. In addition, we truly thank and acknowledge the IMPD North District and all of the IMPD force for all their contributions, accommodations and support.
The outpouring of honor, respect and support from the city and citizens of Indianapolis has been immensely uplifting in this time of loss and sadness. From the mementoes, letters and flowers placed at his car to the signs and flags held by supporters during the procession, we thank you. We are proud and honored to be part of a community that takes such initiative to honor a man they may have never encountered themselves, but take great pride in his contributions to their city. Our family cannot express how much this representation of love and support has meant during these days of healing.
