Officer Williams,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

On March 7, 2016 Jacquelyn Williams Egan passed away... She was a Wonderful Neighbor and Friend of our Family... and she will be sorely missed. I knew of her Son Stephen killed in the line of Duty Police officer, but I never knew of her Husband and 3 other Children killed in an Auto accident. The "Jackie" I knew never showed any Bitterness, only Love and Kindness to my Mother, her Neighbor and my Children... Her last years have been filled with sickness, but Jackie never stood still long enough to be Depressed about it. Rip Jackie, We love you.

For Police Officer Stephen A. Williams:

For some of us,only God know the reason, our service as law-officers is far too brief. I am convinced that despite training, and all the caution once can muster, our fate simply might be a matter of time and place. We regret that Steve's law enforcement career would be cut so short and that he would leave behind loved one's who obviously feel the pain today as if it were only yesterday that he died.
We pray for Steve's mother, and others, who have carried a heavy heart for far too long.
As a former MPDC police officer (1966-1970) and PA state trooper (1970-1995), I stand in awe of those who have given their lives in the service of others.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 48th th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was a fellow Marine as well so I bid you semper fi and thank you for your service in the Corps.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I pray for the soloce of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I thank your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Williams, we have the watch...

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

Officer Williams,
As one officer wrote in another fallen officer's reflection-"No fallen officer should be without a reflection." I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the District of Columbia.
