CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Stephanie Sneed moves one step closer to closure each year she attends the memorial ceremony honoring Hamilton County law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

"It helps a lot to know people come out and support the families," said Ms. Sneed, whose father, Lyle Sneed, a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy, died in 1989 from injuries suffered in a traffic accident while on his way to a fire in which people were trapped, according to Chattanooga Times Free Press archives.
