Elgin police form fundraiser to help ex-sergeant stricken by stroke
Aug 16, 2014 12:59 AM - It was all about that slow, heartbreakingly poignant caress. That's the exact moment Dawn Linder knew her faith in her husband Tom's recovery wouldn't waver after he suffered a major stroke in May 2012. The police department has organized a fundraiser Aug. 28 to help with the former sergeant's medical bills. "Tom was so active and did so much for so many people," Chief Jeff Swoboda said.
