Gone Too Soon.

I did not get a chance to work with you, but you became a part of the LPD family. You gave your life so that others can live in peace and without fear.
You protected your handler for years and lived with him and his family, and for that I am sure they are extremely grateful.
You have crossed the Rainbow Bridge with your badge so continue to wear it proudly. You earned it. Much love and sacrifice.

Heavenly Father, You are always faithful and quick to show mercy. Our Comrade-in-Blue, K9 Sjaak, of the LaVergne TN Police Department, was suddenly and violently taken from us. Come swiftly to his aid, have mercy on him, and comfort his family, friends, and colleagues by the power and protection of the Cross. God Bless the Blue! I ask this through Christ Jesus. Amen.

“No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 HCSB]
