Reflections for Senior Trooper Douglas Wayne Bland

Wayne, you were a good class-mate with character and good morals. I know you are patrolling Heaven's Streets now and are in a much better place. It is an honor to have stood next to you and to have served with you. Peace my friend.

Each time I visit the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial, I stop and look at your name. I always say a prayer for your family and then move on. You will never be forgotten. Rest easy trooper.

It is by chance that I found this website and typed in your name on the anniversary of your home going. I am always thinking of you and I know the day will soon come when we will be together laughing again. We are just passing through this short life, but the day is coming when we will be with our great and mighty God forever. I can't wait until that day. We will all be there someday and you will meet your little girl for the first time. I hope I am there to see it. She is just like you, she makes me laugh just like you made me laugh. She will be taken care of by our Lord who will keep watch over her. Until that day,I love you and will continually miss you.

One night a police officer had a dream. The officer dreamed of walking along the beach with the lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from the officers life. For each scene the officer noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to the officer the other to the Lord. When the last scene appeared the officer looked back at the footprints and noticed many times along the path that there was only one set of footprints in the sand. The officer also noticed this happened during the lowest and saddest times in the officers life. This really bothered the officer who questioned the Lord: "Lord you said that once this officer decided to follow you, you would walk along with this officer all the way. But this officer noticed that during the most troublesome times in this officer's life, there is only one set of footprints. This officer does not understand why when this officer needed you most you would leave this officer." The Lord replied, "My child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
