Artist Shawn Forton used his talents to help her grieving family and pay honor to her sacrifice and hard work for her community.

A portrait made using pencils took him a total of two hours to complete Tuesday evening.

Forton works in law enforcement and says he doesn't do these drawings and paintings for recognition, but as a way to help bring back beautiful memories.
