Reflections for Police Officer Eric D. Lee

We never know do we? Officer Eric Lee did his duty, beyond and above the call! He is a brother in law enforcement we will always cherish and miss. My prayers and regards to his family. We go out each day to hopefully keep this from happening to anyone, much less another Officer. May he rest in peace and look down upon me from heaven.

Another officer has paid the ultimate price to keep society safe. My condolences to the family of Officer Eric Lee and may justice prevail in prosecuting those responsible for his death.

Deputy Randall Rosenberger

Eric, you are a hero. God bless you, your family, your department, and your friends. Being in another big violent city, I can identify with the situation. You didnt die in vain.

Baltimore City Police

Rest In Peace My Brother you will always be remembered.

Cook Co.Sheriff Dept.

I am so sorry to see another Chicago Police Officer killed in the line of duty. This makes two this year, no Cop should die doing their job. It's a little more personal for me when a Chicago Cop gets killed, because my uncle died in 84 wearing a Chicago Uniform trying to take down an armed robber. My condolences to Chicago's finest and to Officer Lee's family. Rest in peace my Brother in the thin blue sky and say hello to my uncle.

Officer Lee,
My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family. I am a brother in blue to you. It saddens me that a lot of people these days do not have any respect for police officers or for the job that we do. You are a hero, you fought for your country as a Marine and your fought to make the Englewood neighborhood a better place for all. May God bless you. You will not be forgotten. Please look over all police officers so that another officer will never lose their life.


Officer Lee and family,
I am sorry to hear about the death of Eric. I wish you all well and prayers daily. I don't understand how someone could just do that to anyone. Eric is now in a better place and got there by doing what he did best, making the world a better place. Thank you Officer Lee for all you have done. I appreciate it. Take care and be safe.

Former Explorer Elise

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for all here from the past
Dear God, let my name be the last
