Reflections for Reserve Officer Robert A. Libke


Not a day goes by we don't think of you.

Thank you for your service. It saddens me that you were killed while you were protecting others from harm.

I know there are no words that can take away the pain of your loved ones. I can only hope that they eventually find solace in knowing that your life was "given" and that you continue to give through your sacrifice.

Two years ago today somebody thought they had the right to take you. It still upsets me and still brings me sorrow. I have not forgotten you Rob. I often go hunting and think about how much you loved to hunt too. I sometimes feel guilty that I still get to hunt, but you don't. The year you left us I killed a deer for you. You must have been with me because I said I was gonna get one! I will do the same for you this year. I often look at my daughter and feel sadness that you don't get to see yours. However, your passing gives me a greater appreciation for the precious days I have. Miss you.

No need to say who I am

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 Mrs Libke find strength in the fact she was loved by a true hero. The sacrifice you & Officer Libke's family made will NEVER, EVER be forgotten.

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

To Robert'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 Libke gave to his community and the citizens of Oregon, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on November 4, 2013.

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

Officer Libke,

Rest well in the Lord.

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.
