HUDSON, MA (WHDH) - For one family, Thanksgiving was a day of remembrance.
Fallen state trooper Thomas Clardy, was honored at a high school football game today in his hometown of Hudson.
Marlboro against Hudson.
All the fixings for a Thanksgiving Day match up. The 113th for these two teams.
But before the game everyone paused and remembered fallen state trooper Thomas Clardy.
He was from Hudson and raised six children there.
“I’m very honored to be here today,” said wife Reisa Clardy. “It’s a beautiful tribute for my husband and family.”
He was at the scene along the Mass Pike that day back in March after another driver hit Trooper Clardy in his cruiser.
Reisa Clardy said her husband loved Thanksgiving and never missed it.
And for a moment before the game, she thought he was here for this one too.
