Words can not say enough but, we mourn another hero that has been taken from us. My deepest sympathy to the family, friends and co-workers. May the Lord give you strength and bless each of you during this time. Remember these few verses taken from the KJB. In I Samuel 20:3 it says, And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly [as] the LORD liveth, and [as] thy soul liveth, [there is] but a step between me and death. In John 3:17 it says, For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. And in Philippians 1:21 it says, For to me to live [is] Christ, and to die [is] gain.

I type each of my words with such a heavy heart..As as young tow truck operator back in the 70's ..I too nearly lost my life in the exact place where Lt. Michael lost his..The call to duty is never stronger than when working Infamous Hwy 17..I did not personally know Lt. Walker.. But then to know ANY California Highway Patrolman and their commitment to duty is to know them All. Please join me in praying for Michaels Family and friends.I now work for Caltrans so there is a double prayer that I asked all to help with...That Caltrans Employee Victor heals quickly and returns to the all important job he has with the State of California.AND.. Over 375 CHP officers and Caltrans Employees have lost thier lives protecting the motoring public. God Bless them All !!Rest Easy Lt Michael Walker..You will never be forgotten!!

“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.

Lt. Walker THANK YOU so much for your selfless sacrifice and what you have done for all of us here in CA. I live about 30 min. away from the accident scene and have probably passed you on the road. It is Officers like you that keep on reminding me how truley blessed we are to have men and women risking their lives everyday for us.
And to Lt. Walker's family stay strong and rely on God for your strength and you will make it through. In the mean time I will be praying for you.

I NEVER DREAMED IT WOULD BE ME
MY NAME FOR ALL ETERNITY
RECORDED HERE AT THIS HALLOWED PLACE
ALAS, MY NAME, NO MORE MY FACE
"IN THE LINE OF DUTY" I HEAR THEM SAY
MY FAMILY NOW THE PRICE WILL PAY
MY FOLDED FLAG STAINED WITH THEIR TEARS
WE ONLY HAD THOSE FEW SHORT YEARS
THE BADGE NO LONGER ON MY CHEST
I SLEEP NOW IN ETERNAL REST
MY SWORD I PASS TO THOSE BEHIND
AND PRAY THEY KEEP THIS THOUGHT IN MIND
I NEVER DREAMED IT WOULD BE ME
AND WITH HEAVY HEART AND BENDED KNEE
I ASK FOR ALL HERE FROM THE PAST
DEAR GOD, LET MY NAME BE THE LAST
