Reflections for Deputy First Class Norman Lewis


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.

The Sheriffs of Florida and their deputies will never forget the sacrifice you and your family made to uphold our laws and protect society.

Your name has been inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs and the National Law Enforcement Memorial and in our hearts. May you forever rest in peace.

for they shall be called the children
of God." Matthew 5:9

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

To the Lewis family, fellow deputies, and all who call Norman beloved, 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Lewis gave to his community and the citizens of Florida, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 9, 2017.

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.”

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.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over five years. I pray that Norman's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

I am going to missing you Norm. You did everything you put your mind to. You did it all with that big smile and such grace.

Lewis was my best friend. He is the reason that I now hold a degree in Criminal Justice and am seeking a position with the Orange County Sheriff's Office. I was lucky enough to attend a Ride-A-Long with Norman on October 30, 2015. We had lots of fun together that night and many nights after. He frequently had dinner and was welcomed into my home which is also the home of a current Orange County Deputy. I spoke with Norman just a couple nights before he passed away, in celebration of his Birthday. I will always love you Norman and not a day goes by that I do not think of you.
