Two longtime Shelby County Deputies retired Friday after decades of service.
Fred Rothenburger has 21 years as a deputy and Sgt. Mike Murray, 25 years.
More than 100 people turned out at a party in their honor held at the former district courtroom in the old courthouse to bid the two farewell, with an abundance of hugs, handshakes and well wishes.
The room could not contain all of those who came, with everyone from all police agencies in the county, emergency services, dispatchers, family and friends, spilling out into the hallway.
