RIP my Brother, RIP.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

Your sacrifice was far too great. Your family is in our prayers.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Timothy died as a result of his injuries in the line of duty.

To the Cole family, fellow officers, and all who call Timothy 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 Investigator Cole gave to his community and the citizens of Oklahoma and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 4, 2018.

I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 where it says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Until we see him again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

A Prayer for Investigator Timothy D. Cole, Sr.:

Lord God of mercy, peace, and love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Investigator Timothy D. Cole, Sr., of the Comanche County, Oklahoma District Attorney’s Office, who sacrificed his life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that he stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of his spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues he loved; devoted to the county and state in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. Thus, in our life, may he live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will.

Heavenly Father, be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them Your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

Almighty God, we ask that you grant us a deeper appreciation of the efforts of all law enforcement officers who serve our communities, states, and country daily. For their dedication to our security, order and peace, we give You thanks. May they be encouraged in their work which benefits us all. Help us to grow that spirit of community that will make their job both easy and fulfilling. And now may our fellowship together and Your blessing today bring a renewed sense of joy to each of us. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

"Greater love has no one than this that someone lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13 ESV]

AVENUE OF THE FALLEN…

Standing at attention in their class “A“ uniforms,
badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement.
All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home…

This inspiring poem was written by Jim Weaver, a retired LAPD Officer and former Idaho Sheriff. It is submitted with his full support and approval. We feel ceremonies such as this actually occur in the Heavenly Realm. We can all gain a glimpse at… ImagineHeaven.net …with the faith building book by Pastor John Burke, and his NDE interviews with credible individuals granted such Near Death Experiences. Both my Pastor and Family Doctors feel many such instances are fully valid. Indeed, “Do nor fear…for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:32). May the Family, Friends and Department be comforted as Magnificent Reunions truly await all Christians!
