Bronx hero laid to rest

Thousands of police officers lined the streets in honor of an Army sergeant who was laid to rest Thursday afternoon.

Deon Taylor, 31, was a Bronx native and an NYPD officer. He was killed on Oct. 22 when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb. Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke kindly of Taylor.

?For those who had the good fortune of knowing him, they will carry in their hearts the memory of his smile so warm, you couldn?t help but smile back.? said Mayor Bloomberg.
