Mourning with you .....
May God wrap you in his arms and hold you close during such a time as this.


To have lost a loved one, on a day celebrating love is unbelievable and saddening.
But during the grief of family, friends and fellow officers, remember that "No greater love hath a man, than to lay down his life for a another."
Trooper Patterson paid the ultimate price to ensure the safety of someone he did not know.
To the citizens of Pennsylvania: "Trooper Patterson was a 'Soldier of the Law', honor Him."......and never FORGET!!!
Rest in Peace, Brian......and remember as
Law enforcement officers "I am my brothers keeper".


Rest easy, we have the watch.


You gave the ultimate sacrifice. You may be gone, but you will NEVER be forgotten. We are all family in this job, sometimes we are the only family each other has. In pace requiescat, Rest in peace! Keep a watch on the rest of us as we go on shift each day.

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die, the world will cry and you will rejoice." (American Indian Prayer)

Isaiah 40:31

Officer Kimblery Moses
MTSU Campus PD, TN

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because it is honored by God.

To the Family of Trooper Patterson and the Pennsylvania State Police, your family of Law Enforcement Officers grieve with you during this time. Trooper Patterson though our badges are different, rest in peace with the other fallen heros, my brother. We will continue the fight in your honor.


My heart was sadden to hear of the passing of yet another fine officer. God Bless.

I am the daughter of Dennis McElderry, i visit this website as much as i can to leave reflections for other officers. Everytime i do i cry remembering those who put their lives on the line for our saftey. That was their job, and they all did so well. Reading these reflections probably really get you some people but in a way it helps me because i helps me to truly understand who my dad was to many people. I hope this website does the same for you all. My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and Family
