As we enter another holiday season without you I remember the last time I saw you alive. You were purchasing a gift certificate for your wife for Christmas. You are not forgotten. Your sacrifice is not forgotten. Your loss was gut wrenching then and as I attended the funeral for another fallen, devoted officer yesterday, the wound feels ripped open and raw again. Your babies are teenagers now! I pray for them and your bride. That Jesus' peace that passes understanding would rest on them throughout another holiday season without you. Through the anniversary of your senseless murder. Jesus come soon. God Bless your surviving family blood and blue. May his hand of protection cover them.
