Reflections for Police Officer David Charles Sherrard

Deepest condolences to Family, Department and Friends. Visit the web site ImagineHeaven.net for a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting. All law enforcement men and women indeed qualify as "Foxhole Christians" with their duty dangers. As Ray Comfort at LivingWater.com says "Passing is the doormat they wipe their feet on before entering Heaven.” It is our belief they will hear from the Lord Himself. “Do not fear. for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:12).

I was an RPD officer who never had the privilege of knowing you, but I heard that you were a good man and a great officer. You will be missed.

You have now joined the ranks of the heroes in Heaven. Rest easy brother.

While the grief shall eventually pass, the stories of how you made us all laugh will live on forever. You were a great training officer that showed me what it meant to truly serve with compassion. You were considered a friend to anyone who was fortunate enough to meet you. You will be truly missed my brother.

To all family and friends of Officer Sherrard. It saddens me to hear of another Officer losing his life while simply doing what he was called to do, to protect and serve. May you find comfort in the memories you share. Praying for Peace and strength from God.

Every morning I go to my knees.  During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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 know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

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 six years.  I pray that David's life and death will bring glory to His name.

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

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Dave you goofy f'er! We served together on SWAT. I always knew you had my back. When you started I thought you were young, goofy and a little immature. I watched you grow into a dedicated SWAT officer, Instructor, cop and my friend. I will surely miss you. I love you buddy.

As we all come to reckon with the aftermath of losing a brother in Officer Sherrard, we reflect on who he was to the people most important to him. A wreath of flowers adorned the stage at his memorial service which read "My Sweet Beast". It's obvious to anyone who saw and worked beside Officer Sherrard, he was an imposing figure. One can imagine that he carried his presence proudly and professionally and it served him equally well. In that wreath, we caught a glimpse of who Officer Sherrard was as a man, a husband, and a father. None of us can imagine what it's like for this family to lose someone so committed to both sides of life: Family and Career. All we can do is honor this brave man and carry on our mission both in his name and for all of those who have made this sacrifice before us. We will continue to pray for the fine men and women of Richardson PD, as well as Officer Sherrard's wife Nicole and their kids.

David, thank you sincerely for your service. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
