When the plane arrived at SFO, the southwest flight attendant announced that on board was the body of one of the victims from last Sunday.

Many say they were overcome with emotion when they saw family members and police officers outside their window.

Many of Vinnie's fellow officers were at SFO when her body arrived just after 2pm.

Members of the color guard were on hand, and so were many other officers, several of whom carried the casket. A procession then followed.

Passengers who caught a glimpse of what was going on outside their plane were moved by the tribute Etcheber received.

"People who are the innocent victims of these tragedies it's sad to see them. At the same time, they're getting the proper kind of coming home," passenger Michele Bergen said.

"When you see all the police officers and everybody just standing and the respect they have. It was just very hard. You just see all the families. Very upsetting," passenger Tracey Reilly said.

Etcheber was married to her husband Vinnie for 13 years.

She was also the mother of two children, a 12-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son.
