The city of Peekskill came out Thursday afternoon to pay a final farewell to Police Officer Gregory Jones.
Jones died unexpectedly on Thanksgiving night. 
He volunteered in a community Thanksgiving dinner the day before.
The 48-year-old made a lasting impression on the community he served.
"They truly loved him. He deserved every minute of it. Loved his community and loved giving back...he would rather help you before arresting you. He had a big heart," said Carol Dunkly, of Peekskill. 
Emotions were so high at Thursday's ceremony that many were unable to put into words what the 24-year veteran meant and will always mean to them.
