To Ofcs Wertz Family, Friends, and Brothers and Sisters of Reading Police my deepest regrets on this tragic event. I know it is always tough to deal with the pain when we lose that special person but I found this poem and wanted it to share it with you all. It is not mine but this sounds like brother Wertz from what I have read:

The badge shines bright
On the shirt of blue.
It takes a strong soul to wear it
A heart that's proud and true.

He says good night to his family
before he walks out the door.
He must go watch the streets,
Yet he does so much more.

In his car, when the call comes,
The lights are flashing blue and red.
He would never hurt his children,
He can't believe what was just said.

With his partner awaiting,
He has to be there, he must answer the call!
The wife is frantic,
"Put the gun down," but the man won't withdraw.

Shots are fired, his partner is hit in the arm,
One more flash is seen, someone must fall.
His partner is there, and so is the man,
and on the ground He lies, giving his all.

He says goodbye to his family,
With the pain in his chest.
The lights are flashing, blue and red,
As he begins his final rest.

Leaving a wife and two children,
Is the hardest thing He would ever do,
How will they live,
What are they going to go through?

Will His children grow old,
will His wife move on?
Will they know how much He loved them,
Now that He is gone?

He was only doing His job,
Trying to help who He could.
It was never known hard it was to be a Cop,
But now His family understood.

On three cheeks, three tears shine bright,
Like rain from a cloud,
It takes three strong souls to shed them,
Saying goodbye from hearts that will always be proud.

Good Speed, Until We Meet Again!

My heart breaks for Scott's family. I remember seeing him at the events raising money for the Michael H. Wise, II Fund. He was a kind person. Tricia, I can't stop thinking about you and your family. I'm devastated that you have to go through this, too. Your life will never be the same but please know that I am here for you and will do what I can to help. Always remember Scott and his life.
