Reflections for Deputy Marshal Glen Denning DeVanie

Please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Thank you Deputy Marshal Devanie for a job well done. Please continue to watch over us and protect us as only you can. You will forever be at our side and in our hearts.

For those of you who still have loved ones with us please take the time to tell them how much you appreciate and care about them.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

Rest in peace brother. God bless. Watch over you wife and young children who are left behind. May God give them and your fellow officers the strength and courage to carry on in your name. You are a hero lost but you will not be forgotten. Your children will grow up knowing their daddy was a true hero and a warrior who protected others.

To the family, friends, and co-workers of Deputy Devaine,
I am so sad to hear of your loss. It breaks my heart to come on this web site and see another name added, actually it makes me sick!! There are no words that I can say to take away your pain, I know, I have been there. I know just how bad it hurts. I pray his young children will know that their dad is a hero. It isn't fair that these young children will never be able to hold their dad's hand, hear him tell them that he loves them, or even know his voice. My eyes are filling with tears as I write this. I pray that you will lean on God and feel His comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you some sort of peace in this most difficult time!! Deputy Devanie now has wings to fly. Thank you for a job well done.
