Bud Monroe poses for a photos with police officers during a birthday parade last week. Bud and Sharon Monroe both have birthdays coming up. The two are turning 88 and 84, respectively, in the coming weeks. Sharon Monroe has dementia, and Bud is her sole caretaker. To help them celebrate, family and friends held a surprise parade. Many law enforcement officers will be taking part, since Bud Monroe was a longtime member of the Indiana State Police.
