Cold Spring Police officer Tom Decker was ambushed and shot late Thursday night behind a bar in Cold Spring. He will be laid to rest today, Dec. 5, in St. Nicholas Cemetery after a funeral at 11 a.m. at St. John's Abbey in Collegeville.

Thousands turned out for the funeral, and many more lined the procession route to say "thank you" and "farewell."

Flags across the state will be at half-mast in honor of Tom today. May he rest in peace.
