Reflections for Senior Officer Specialist Eric Williams

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out".

Five years now since your EOW. Sadly I remember hearing the news, learning how much your death affected your fellow officers and their respect for you. Prayers for you, your dear ones, and all concerned. May it never happen again.

Eric and family,

Since your death many many changes have taken place in the Bureau. Unfortunately we have to lose staff for things to change. Eric you would be so proud of how hard your mom and dad have fought for the Bureau and the changes that took place.

My deepest condolences to the family of this fallen officer. Having over 27yrs with Missouri Dept. of Corrections, with almost 15 in custody, I've had my share of rebar clubs, assisting with seperating rival gangs, fights, stabbings, rapes and hangings. It's a whole different world in this line of work and anything can happen at any time. What makes a person choose to run to a situation rather than from it? I think it is a solid commitment to those you work with and those you work for(the public). Eric obviously felt the same way. May God bless each of you and may you find strength through His Son Jesus Christ.

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!

To the family and friends of Officer Eric Williams and his fellow officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Eric was killed.

To Officer William's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Eric Williams to his community and the citizens of Pennsylvania, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 25, 2013.

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 & He will judge the guilty. 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.

He always knew he could be yet he never thought he would be. God knows none ever should be killed in the line of duty.
He made his final stand; his profession’s last demand. A routine of many a corrections officer killed in the line of duty. Others answered one last call to see that he arrived only to fall, killed in the line of duty.

May his soul be forever blessed for they who are now at rest; died doing what they loved best killed in the line of duty.
Forgotten they never could be. Forgotten they never should be. Thought they never would be killed in the line of duty.
God bless all those who fell. They are missed and loved so well. Let us pray and toll the bell for those killed in the line of duty.

My heart is filled with sorrow and my thoughts are with you and your family.
