Reflections for Officer Erick Shane Manny

Erick,
I will miss exchanging stories about our daily duties of the job. You are a great friend. I am so glad I had the HONOR of working in the past.

Today when Kevin called me to tell me the bad news, I thought to myself why? But I know you loved your job and you did it well.

Ill miss you stopping by the house while on your way to court in LA. Tonight I called your cell phone to hear your voice one last time.

You will be truly missed my brother. You keep a watchful eye from above and we will continue to do the Lord's work down here.

I will never forget you bro, I miss you and rest in peace.
Love,
Eric

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

I would like to convey my sincerest condolences to the Manny family and to the California Highway Patrol. Officer Manny was a true hero, and will deeply be missed by all who knew him. I am really filled with grief over the fact that two other officers from this department were recently killed in the line of duty. These officers exemplified courage and bravery and will forever be in our hearts.

God be with your wife and children... and every other loved one, family member, and coworker of yours. Thank you for your sacrifice... I'm so so so so sorry that your family had to lose you at all, let alone this close to Christmas. I know Heaven is going to be amazing, but we'll all miss you here. I pray your wife is led to this site one day to see all the people in this nation that will never let you bet forgotten. God bless all of you and be careful

Everyday we check this site and pray that another name has not been added. We lost one of our own in September and we know the pain and anger and fear that the CHP family is going through. There is nothing I can say to make those feelings go away. Time can help and you must have faith that all will become easier with that time. I send blessings to the family of this brave man and also to his fellow Officers and thier families. Stick together, stick tough. Trust each other in your grieving. May God bless you all in this time of tragedy.

Rest in peace, brother.

There is nothing we can say to stay the pain,
There is nothing we can do to bring him back again,
We can't lose sight of our future or what it will hold,
We must continue to remember we came from that police mold,
For our lives we live beyond compare,
So that other lives will surely spare.

It hurts as we suffer these losses, for every officer lost is a pain to be suffered by all, each and every one of us. We gain solace from the fact that this officer is now with GOD, he will hurt no more, and he gets to spend this Christmas with his heavenly family, just waiting for the rest to join... in time. Patrolling the streets of heaven, there is surely much time to peek down on those left behind, a simple thought of peace alone, and memories, rich for thought and comfort, in the absence of this life. We are only temporarily earthly, we will forever be heavenly... my prayers go out to you, the family of this dedicated officer, for no greater sacrifice could he give, now, the prayers will be for all of you, as you grieve his loss, but retain the good memories that he leaves behind for your only comfort. God Bless each and every one of you, family, friends, and all brother and sister officers feeling this loss alike. This season, Erick is celebrating Christmas with He who made it all possible.

Lord,
He was yours to give,
and yours to call home,
please stand by his brothers,
so they don't feel alone,
dry the tears of his family,
so they clearly see:
that he gave his all,
so all could have peace.
Blessed are they,
the children of God,
with heavy hearts,
and honor they trod,
to pay their respects,
to give their salute,
and to ask for your mercy,
on heroes in Blue.
Amen.

Troop, rest easy brother, we have the watch.
