Rest easy brother, The watch is ours now.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).
Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend. Deputy Jeffrey Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....

Mi hermano en azul , te saludo como colega oficial y como Puertorriqueño que tambien soy. Diste tu vida por proteger a la gente de nuestra querida islita que esta pasando por una situacion muy dificil. A tu familia que le quede claro que eres un heroe y que en los corazones de todas las agencias del orden publico esta sembrada la semilla de tu valentia y del ultimo sacrificio que has dado por mantener las calles de Puerto Rico seguras. Tu juventud no impidio que dieras un paso hacia adelante y que llenaras tu corazon de valentia para enfrentarte al mal que dia tras dia aprende que con la linea azul no se juega , y que estamos dispuestos a sacrificar hasta nuestras propias vidas para asegurarnos de que la justicia salga siempre victoriosa sobre todo.

A la familia del Oficial Santos Silva, mis mas sinceras condolencias. Yo se que en este momento no hay palabras que puedan expresar la pena de la familia, amigos y companeros. Yo perdi a mi hijo el 11 de septiembre de 2003 y comprendo su dolor. Mantenganse cerca de nuestro Dios--es el unico que les puede ayudar a soportar la pena en este momento.

Ruego a Dios les bendiga con la paz y misericordia que solo El puede brindar.

Oficial Silva, descanse en paz. Nunca lo olvidaremos.

Officer Laboy, you are my hero . . . duty was calling and you answered . . . you protected all of us . . . we are a grateful nation . . . thank you my brother. I honor you, your name, your memory and mostly for the ultimate sacrifice you made protecting us all. You walked the path of the warrior and fought your final battle with honor.

To your injured partner, I wish you God's speed in your recovery. To the officer who killed your murderer I say, thank you for "answering the call", for your loyalty, for doing what needed to be done. God bless you all.
