NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The community of Glendale in Queens has prepared all week for the funeral of NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos, and many residents have been showing their support for the murdered cop.

“It’s been very sad. It’s been emotional,” said Teresa Kranacher. “When he would look at you and smile, you had to smile back; it was infectious, his smile.”

Kranacher, a waitress at Tasty Diner on Myrtle Avenue, told CBS2’s Ilana Gold she served Ramos and his family every Sunday after church for many years.

She said Ramos had stopped at the diner just days before he was killed.

“It was from what we believe was his birthday,” Kranacher said. “We were teasing around his younger son. We asked him why he was home, he said it was because of his father’s birthday.”

Ramos and NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu were gunned down last Saturday
