My condolences to his family, friends, and his law-enforcement family.



John 15:13 A man that lays down his life for others has a great love.

We knew, when we strapped
On our belts, we might not
Come home after our shift;
Each day could have been our last.
We are the role-models
And must pass on the eternal torch
Of self-sacrifice to our next generation.
We have quieted the child with tears;
We've sat with those those whose spirits
Needed a lift; we've cried with those who've
Suffered loss so they did not
Have to alone bare their heavy cross.
Love is an amazing gift.

God is control;
He has sent his ministering angles
to watch over those who are
suffering knowing, in your heart,
You would gladly take their stead;
These ministering angels are
The Doctor's, Nurses, Experienced Therapist,
The LPNs, Ancillary Staff, the Firemen,
The EMT's, and Law-Enforcement;
These are the unsung heroes of today
who forge ahead.

They have God's enforcement
