K9 Vigor:

Thank you for your law enforcement service to the citizens of Monroe County, Tennessee and to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Let us celebrate your accomplishments and remember your selfless sacrifice in the Line-of-Duty. However, death is not the end; it does not have the final say! All dogs do go to heaven because you have a spirit that epitomizes God's unconditional love. And He [Jesus] said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise" [Luke 23:43]. Now, my four-legged, furry Comrade in Blue, rest easy, we will take it from here. "Well done, good and faithful servant" [Matthew 25:11]. May the Lord God bless you always. Amen
