MONTGOMERY, OH (FOX19) - The funeral procession for Officer Sonny Kim will go 14 miles on Friday, starting at the Cintas Center and ending at Gate of Heaven Cemetery. Already, there was already support along the route Thursday night on Montgomery Road.

The streets along the route are expected be lined with people wearing blue, all showing their support for the officer. But everyone knows It's going to be a tough day

"Honestly very emotional. I don't know if I'm ready for it," Angie Schuler said.

Schuler made a banner that will hang outside where she works at The Corner Pub. She never knew Officer Kim and neither did her patrons but that doesn't matter.

"Tomorrow we are going to be opening up a little early for the procession. we basically want to be here for our regulars who want to show their support for officer and his family," Schuler said.

Officer Kim's casket will be on a two wheeled cart with some law enforcement walking along side. Most of Montgomery Road will be closed off but businesses like Cinque will be open with heavy hearts they didn't know they had.

"My mom works in the school system and she did know Officer Kim's three sons so it hit home for sure," said Cinque worker, Brian Jordan.

Columbia Hyundai would normally have their cars lined up front and center on Montgomery. But Friday they will take a back seat. As the dealership moved its cars back so officers from out of town will have a place to park their cars.

Bethesda North Hospital is along the route as well. They say they have a plan in place to make sure patients that need care are attended too. They said if you are coming to the hospital to please plan ahead.
