During May, 2003, several law enforcement officers from around this great country participated in the Indiana Police Unity Tour, a memorial bicycle ride from Indianapolis, Indiana to the national Law Enforcement memorial in Washington, DC. Our leadership for this historic event came from within the ranks of the Indiana State Police. As a member of that memorial team, I wish to send my deepest regrets to Scott's family and the Indiana law enforcement community. I pray that our ride serves as a reminder that Scott's life and honor will never be forgotten.

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:6-10

The Final Inspection
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Rest In Peace, my brother in blue. Watch over us as we continue the fight. You will not be forgotten.

Rest in Peace Trooper Patrick. The blue light candles that are in my front window sill are there to honor your ultimate sacrifice. They were placed there already for the two Mishawaka officers and the New Richmond officer who had died earlier this month, as well as the countless other law enforcement officers we honor with blue lights each Decemeber. The State of Indiana is proud of you! Thank you for protecting this great state. May God bless you and your family.

God Bless you Scott, you have earned your wings. Rest easy brother, we will take it from here.

To Mrs. Patrick and your precious child, I pray God watches over you in this incredibly difficult time. I hope and pray you find comfort in knowing God shall wrap his arms around you and yours. May your beautiful child find comfort in knowing Daddy is up above in heaven watching over him or her and feel blessed that he or she has their own personal guardian angel.

Know that Scott's brothers and sisters in law enforcement will always hold him dear in our hearts and if you ever need anything, just call on any of us. Once family, always family.

Mrs. Patrick,
My heart breaks for you & your family. I know all too well the pain of losing your loved on in the line of duty but can't imagine having his unborn child to deliver & explain to. As hard as that will be, you will always have a part of him with you in your child. I know Christmas will always be hard but remember that God will take care of you as well as the people around you. Know there are many of us praying for you. Don't let the awful person that killed your husband take the rest of your life away from you (only he wins then). I know that sounds hard but try to live your life as happy as possible because your husband would want you to be happy. You'll be in my prayers as I light my blue candle tonight in memory of all those who died in the line of duty. God bless you.
