Whatever our duty, or wherever we serve, we are all brothers and sisters in this most honorable calling. We have lost yet another brother who we must never forget.

My deepest sympathy to both his family and his law enforcement family. My thoughts and prayers are with them. May he rest in eternal peace.

God Bless you Sir. May the good Lord above cradle you in his arms, and may you Rest in Peace my Brother in Blue. I offer my prayers and sympathies to each and every one of your family members, friends, and co-workers.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Deputy Freeman died.

To Michael'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 many years of dedicated service Deputy Freeman gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 8, 2013.

Deputy Freeman,

Thank you for your service. You will be welcomed by all others who also chose to "Protect and Serve" who went before you. Rest well in the arms of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray,

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over two years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

No I did not know Deputy Sheriff Michael Neal Freeman personally… Who I do know and count as family members is hundreds of other men and women who are very much like Deputy Sheriff Michael Neal Freeman… I know what Deputy Sheriff
Michael Neal Freeman stood for and the courage and commitment it took for him to put his uniform on day in and day out and serve a largely ungrateful or indifferent public… I know that there are very few people who can put on a police uniform and serve their community well and the loss of even one of those willing to do so is a far more of a price then we can afford to pay… I know the bond that glues the very foundation of the men and women in the public safety community into one family… I know the deep grief and pain that resonates within our very beings as we contemplate wife/husbands, children, parents, brothers and sisters who will now have to face a life without one who was so very important in their lives… I know the yearning desire to do something, to do anything to take a bit of that pain a way and yet the near hopeless knowledge that there is very little that we can do as individuals but when we stand together as a whole we can lean on, hold up and support one another… I know that in this case where it seems like evil prevailed that the sacrifice of the loss of Deputy Sheriff Michael Neal Freeman will not be in vain… I know that this type of loss is one of the few things that can penetrate the emotional armor that the men and women in public safety learn early on to erect to protect their very being from all the pain, suffering, abuse, injustice and horror that they see… This sacrifice will make them reevaluate their priorities, their commitment, what they count as important and at the end of the day appreciate exactly how precious life is. So no, I did not know Deputy Sheriff Michael Neal Freeman personally… Yet I mourn the pain that is felt across a nation of blue… The state of Texas and our nation has lost a great person who stood for justice and righteousness and peace… So few truly hold those values as important in life anymore, thus the loss of even one who is willing to stand above the rest should be mourned by all…

You are now patrolling the Streets of Heaven. Rest in Peace Deputy Freeman. My condolences to family, friends and colleagues.

James Bourque, Correctional Counselor

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND COMFORT IN THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE HERE ON EARTH.

I have no idea why the individual was running from the Police and I do not care, his thoughtless and criminal actions were the cause of this man's death and he should face true justice for those actions. It may have been a mistake made by an otherwise decent human being, but if that is the case, what he did to Deputy Freeman has haunted him and he has dealt with knowing what he did. If he did NOT suffer for his sins, then may he face eternal damnation. This article does not say the fate of that person, but I hope he suffered one way or another; guilt or various other imprisonments.

Deputy Freeman, thank you for your service. God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
