I really enjoyed the time I had to get to know you as a fellow horseman and fellow officer during the academy. You are one of the few that I have always remembered and called friend. You are missed... You were an awesome father, horseman, officer, and friend to all those around you and in your life.

RIP my friend. We have the watch.

Watch over your wife, children and all of your family on this 3 year mark since you left them physically.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

It's been a while brother but I think of you often. We sure had some great times working dogs, and spent countless hours watchin' and waitin'. You're missed more than you could ever imagine. We all miss that big smile, that great laugh, and your unending humor.

Thank you for your service. Thank you for your sacrafice. I'll see you again in God's time. You'll never be forgotten! I miss you, man!

Though it was only a couple of times, I am sure going to miss going to church with my in-laws and listening to Choc teach. I believe I'll see Brother Ericsson again, maybe he can teach me another thing or two.

I had the honor of knowing and working with Choc and heard the unfortunate news while I was in Iraq. He was one of a few that I visited with before I was deployed and I will always remember him as dedicated, hard working and always availble to help. His Legacy will not be how he was taken from us, but how he lived. He will not be forgotten by those he left behind nor by those who will be greating him in eternity.

Matthew 5.9; Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

I will see you again my Brother. My God bless your family, friends and brother Peacemakers.

I remember Choc as a student at Ricks College at the Livestock Center, west of Rexburg. His Dad was so proud of him and he comes from good "stock." It is with saddness that I learned of his passing now (2-27-07). Take care.
