Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Christopher Michael Burgert

' Death is nothing at all..I have only slipped away into the next room..I am I and you are you..whatever we were to each other that we are still. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you used to. Put no difference into your tone; wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.Let it be spoken without effect , without the ghost of a shadow on it . Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; There is absolutely unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligble accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you,
for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner .. All is well '

Henry Scott-Holland, Canon of St. Paul's.
1847 - 1913

To all Family, Friends, and Co Workers of this Officer:

On Behalf of myself, and the Family of Police Officer Daniel Starks (Ft Myers Fl, E/O/W 10-25-03) we want you to know that you are all in our prayers! The Lord will sustain you as you go through this difficult, and trying time, but just remember your loved one is being cared for in Heaven, and is now eternally safe. We hope that you all remain as strong as possible, and know that we are all thinking of you. No words are quite ever adequate, but Police Officers make the ultimate sacrifice everyday, and our hope, and prayer is that they will always be remembered for their heroic efforts, and kind hearts.
Blessings Always,

Peace ......so often planted in the shadowed days of sorrow, grows slowly...and the blossoms in the sunshine of tomorrow.God knows there will be sorrows so He gives us tears to cry, He knows there will be trials when His children ask Him "why?. But He is our Heavenly Father and He will take us by the hand to lead us through the sorrows that we cannot understand.....

My deepest sympathy to the family, friends, and co-workers of Deputy Sherrif Burgert.

"If I should leave this world without a warning,
and not even whisper a fond farewell,
grieve not for one more message from the lips
that God has stilled.
But just remember me with love and prayers
for my soul's journey to that fair land
beyond life's tears." - Author Unknown.

May God Bless you, Officer Burgert and may He welcome you into His Kingdom.

I would like to thank you for your dedication and commitment to a job that generally goes un-noticed until something tragic occurs. May God bless you, and your family and continue to hold them in his presence for the rest of their days.

I am so saddened by this senseless and sickening act of cowardice. Two fine officers have stood the last roll call. I pray for thier families, friends and collegaues and for this small community.We lost an officer in this manner last year in our small rural county. It cut us all to the bone emotionally.

Two brave officers now walk a beat on Heaven's Streets with St. Michael. I hope that the animals responsible for this horror are brought to swift justice. God Bless and be safe brothers and sisters.
