Reflections for Corporal Barbara Ann Ester

 

You are a Hero, your sacrifice and service wont be forgotten. Thank you for serving 12 years. I appreciate for the service that all the officers do, always be remembered.

I attended your memorial. I wish that I had had an opportunity to know you in the living years. The anount of support and love which was shown the day you were laid to rest was awe inspiring. Chiefs-of-State seldom have memorials which rise to the level that was shown that day. It is hard to believe that it all happened (2) two years ago. Barbara, rest in peace and rest well, we now man the watch towers in your memory.

I remember starting at Brickey's in 2005. I was the youngest Officer there. You and other Veteran's took me under your wings and treated me like Family. You'll be Greatly missed.

I never met you.. and I will never forget you. Alot of people will never know what its like to be out numbered 100 to 1, unarmed, and still have the bravery to walk in the door. You are a Hero, your sacrifice and service wont be forgotten. R.I.P Corporal.

Many sympathies for all families. All of this tragedy for a pair of shoes. This is very sad. Was there a danger in the shoes already? Maybe should rethink shoes being an issue for prevention. I pray for all.

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.

Cpl. Ester,
Maam, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Arkansas. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

As I read the reflections from other law enforcement agencies throughout the nation I realize that it is a dramatic loss for everyone when an officer is killed in the line of duty and unless you have been in this type of work people can't understand what a loss it is to the law enforcement/corrections family and the importance of the job they do. MAY GOD BE WITH THE ESTER FAMILY AND COMFORT THEM

It's hard for others to realize the dangers we encounter and we are so under compensated for the duties we carry out. I hate to see this happen to anyone, especially someone as dedicated as you. I pray for your family and may you rest in peace.
