Sept. 25, 1992. I will never forget that night. That was the night I was told my son, Deputy Brent McCants, was killed in the line of duty.
There was a knock at the door. A chaplain and York County police officer told me Brent was dead.
I had been through this before. In 1978, my husband, Dale, was killed in a tragic accident at Bowater.
You feel like you are in a bad nightmare or that you fell in a well. You want to hit the walls to wake up. But, reality hits back. You don’t believe it’s true until you see the body for yourself.
