SA Sentner; Gutsy move and execution of training in response to the deadly threat confronting you, your reaction probably saved the lives of others. Rest in peace brother.

Family and friends; you have lost a gallant comrade and an inspiration to us all. We grieve at your loss and the void he has left in your lives. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

The Policeman stood and faced his God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I've never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, it needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.
Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell.

I am now the Director of Security for The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. I spent several days with Buddy prior to and during an Al Gore visit. He was a great guy and we would sit in his car, watching the rain and reflecting on the career of law enforcement. Although only a few days, I'll always remember Buddy and that time in the rain in Arizona.
