Prompt for June 21, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The chair creaked slightly when she collapsed into it. At 140 pounds, Loretta Wilkinson was not a big woman. She was five foot eight when she stood up straight. The mass of thick, red curly hair that perched itself atop her head added a few inches to her height so she always seemed taller than she actually was. Right now, however, as she perched on the edge of the chair, she seemed smaller, almost childlike as she sat with her face in her hands. The sobs that broke through the barrier came louder and louder until Captain Forrest had to bend down and try to comfort her. His police uniform, the one he wore to inform people of loved ones who had passed away, was stiff, acting like a barrier to the scene that played out before him.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
