CHARLOTTE,  N.C. -  This Saturday, April 13th the 5th Annual  Forever Blue Foundation's Thin Blue Line Ride will make it's way from Rock Hill to Charlotte.  The ride honors police officers who have fallen in the line of duty.  The Forever Blue Foundation was created to help those officers' families who made the ultimate sacrifice.   Wilson talks with Jennifer Shelton, widow of officer Jeff Shelton about how life has been since she lost her husband in 2007.
