Less than a month ago I wrote this post about a mother who is now a widow.

Melissa Ayala lost her husband, a Montgomery County Police Officer, last month and is expecting triplets next month.

She has now registered at Buy Buy Baby.

And you can view her registry directly here.

The wonderful people at Graco are donating

3 car seats to Melissa for her triplets

on behalf of Graco and DC Metro Moms!

Let’s work together to help this mom out,

Please consider getting her something from her registry.


Montgomery County Police Officer Dead; Widow is Expecting Triplets in June and Has a 14-month-old son

Last Friday I headed to Home Depot for track lighting. My son was happy, at camp.

Traffic was stopped at the big intersection of Georgia and Connecticut Avenues.

‘What could be happening?’ I thought…

And then I saw a Huge Motorcade of Police Motorcycles, and then Police Cars…  I’ve never seen a Funeral Motorcade that long, and unfortunately, I’ve seen a lot of funeral motorcades.

‘O God, it’s a Cop.’  I thought.

It was a police officer’s funeral procession.  It was the funeral procession for Hector Ayala, who died in a car crash while responding to a fellow officer’s call for assistance for a fight in progress…

…on Easter Morning.

I learned later that day that Sergeant Ayala’s widow, Melissa, has a 14-month-old son,

and is expecting triplets… in June.

And then I thought about her,

and it knocked the wind out of me.  It was like I had been punched, but no one was there.  I had trouble breathing for a moment, and then had to take a few, slow, deep breaths.
