Trooper Riley,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as an LEO-but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC during the Persian Gulf War. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Trooper Riley,

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.

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.

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.

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.

Well Ross, Tuesday was our Annual Candlelight Memories Vigil where you were supposed to play Taps to honor the fallen. I heard from so many Troopers as well as Heidi that you were so excited and honored to be playing Taps at our Vigil. Instead you were one of the fallen that we recognized We also posted a photo of you playing Taps while it was being played so that you would be playing Taps as well. A very moving and fitting tribute. RIP.

Psalm 116:15--"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servant."

Hard to try to comprehend why such a faithful servant to all, in many capacities, was taken away so soon. Praying family,friends, and law enforcement family will find comfort in all the good memories shared with such a wonderful person, Trooper Riley. My son just lost one of his best friends, Deputy Joseph Antwine, Florence SC , 11-29-13, in a car wreck responding to a call. His partner injured but survived. Know your pain, share your pain, will continue to pray for you.
