WEST ALLIS - Hundreds gathered to say goodbye to a police detective who died after giving birth to twins. Stacie Napoli was a 17-year veteran of the West Allis police force.

Friends and family said their final good-bye to Stacie Napoli.  She had a big impact on everyone who knew her.

A silver hearse carrying Detective Stacie Napoli passed under an American flag. It was suspended high in the air from two fire truck ladders.

Somber mourners stood on the edges of the road as they watched the hearse pass by. Stacie Napoli was a 17 year veteran of the West Allis police department. Her greatest wish was to be a mom.

The procession started at Krause Funeral Home at 124th and National.

Another angle, from the street, shows the long motorcade of police cars. Many traveled from all across the state. The West Allis mayor also attended the funeral. 

The procession of cars weaved through the streets, past the West Allis Police Department. Their last stop was at Highland Memorial Park Cemetery.

While Napoli died after giving birth, the twins survived, and are doing well.  Many people in the community have stepped up to help the family after this tragic loss.

Sobelman's pub and grill raised over seven hundred dollars Sunday. Double B's BBQ & Burgers in West Allis is donating twenty percent of food sales this Thursday to the Stacie Napoli Foundation.
