It is people like you, Officer Stevens, who inspire me to pursue my career in law enforcement. Although, I never got the chance to know you or meet you I know what you stand for and the dangers that you and every officer faces in the field, but through those very moments you stood courageously. You made the ultimate sacrafice to the community which you serve and no one can ask for more. Thank you for your service and God bless you and your family.

(ANDY) WHAT WILL WE DO
COPYRIGHT 2005 BY MICHAEL BOGDAN

Where do you start to tell the story of a man
Who spent his life helping people as best one can
Day to day he’d be watching out for you and me
Always knowing there was no guarantee

He’d be first in line with a hand for a friend
And would see it through all the way to the end
Always found a way to come safely home each day
Somehow knowing he could never turn away

An angel got its wings on that autumn afternoon
They were well deserved it’s true
Standing strong against evil for me and you
Andy, what will we do

It was a routine stop out on a country road
Maybe a ticket or a warning we’ll never know
The stop turned out it seems to have ended Andy’s dreams
Hidden danger gone unseen

I guess all that’s left is to kneel down and pray
With the Good Lord’s help we’ll get through another day
It hurts so much inside but with time it will subside
We will meet again someday for one more ride

An angel got its wings on that autumn afternoon
They were well deserved it’s true
Standing strong against evil for me and you
Andy, what will we do

Standing strong against evil for me and you
Oh Andy, what would you do

To the family, Proverbs Ch.3 Vs.5,
Trust the Lord with all your heart, do not rely on your own understanding.

This loss of your loved one will never cease to sting, but with fath it shall become a burden that can be carried in the way of fond memories.

My prayers are with you.

I echo my son, Justin's, sentiments. It is so soon after we lost Matt to hear of another senseless death and it appears we have lost another gem.

My heartfelt sympathies to your family, co-workers, and friends.

Thank you for your service, Andy. I hope you and Matt become fast friends and watch over the rest of us.
