The sobbing widow of slain NYPD officer Wenjian Liu sat inconsolably near her husband’s casket inside the funeral home during his wake Saturday.

Liu was laid out in his uniform, with his NYPD badge and hat placed on his body inside the open casket. Candles and incense burned nearby, and a white banner held a message in Chinese: “His bravery is still with us,” the New York Daily News reports.

There were wall-to-wall flowers and wreaths inside the funeral home, and pictures of Liu in his NYPD blues all around. The mourning family was dressed in black.

Mourners received a small prayer card with a photo of Liu beneath his posthumously awarded detective’s badge, with an American flag as the backdrop on its front.

“In Loving Memory of Detective Wen Jian Liu 1982-2014,” read the flip side above a prayer for police officers.
