May God comfort each of those who have been affected by the loss of this fine officer. Rest in peace with all those who have gone on before you. Thank you for giving the ultimate sacrifice for your city. John 15:13

What a sad loss. When an rare and unexpected turn of events claims a life, it is even harder to grasp what could not be forseen. Certainly his family and friends were celebrating what they no doubt predicted was a progressive recovery.

I feel the sorrow and loss of my brother officer. Though I didn't know him, we are all family. I pray for his family, friends, coworkers, colleagues and the law enforcment family of the badge.

He now walks a beat in Heaven with St. Michael. God Bless.

Be safe.

he will always be on patrol our thoughts and prayers.

Another brother in blue lost. Rest in peace.

To this fine officers wife, children, coworkers, family and friends may God be with you all and guide you through this terrible time of loss. To the children of this young man remember always that your dad is a true hero. Rest in peace officer Branson.

You will be greatly missed by your friends and family. It seems like yesterday when we were driving around listening to comedy CD's to pass the time.
You were a great friend, brother, father and officer. May God Bless your family and stand by them in this troubling time. Enjoy your new chair in heaven until we can join you.
Rest in Peace
