ST. LOUIS -- (KTVI) -- Amid unimaginable grief, the widow of slain Saint Louis County Police Officer Blake Snyder is using Facebook to help her deal with the loss of her husband. Although Elizabeth Snyder still endures immense pain, their son Malachi has helped her push through the heartache and traumatic loss.
Elizabeth posted a picture Tuesday evening of her son with what appear to be two teddy bears. She writes, "These beautiful bears were made for us from Blake's uniforms."
Elizabeth has said in the past that she's eternally grateful for all of comfort she has received from the St. Louis community and across the nation as well, adding her son will always know how much the community adored her husband and cared for their family in this trying time.
