    Police Officer Sent This Note to the Distraught Woman She Pulled Over

    One woman got an unexpected surprise after a police officer pulled her over. Robin Sutherland, from Somerville, Massachusetts, was pulled over Tuesday morning for going 40 in a 30 mph zone, Fox 25 reported. When talking to the officer, Ashley Catatao, Sutherland mentioned that her 90-year-old mother was to enter hospice care the next day. Catatao let her off with a warning. Then, later that evening she received a flower delivery. The note reads: I’m very sorry to hear about your mother. I hope you find comfort in knowing she lived a long life and will continue to live on in your heart and in your memories. — Officer who pulled you over this morning.
