Reflections for Police Officer Edwanton Allen "Eddie" Thomas

Officer Thomas,
Your service to the Citizens of Brier and to our Country is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten. I am deeply saddened to hear of your passing. May God Speed Brother. Your name will forever be etched on the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial on the Capitol grounds in Olympia. Your name and memory will forever be etched in the hearts of your family, friends and fellow Officers.

To the family of Officer Thomas. May you know that many will never forget Eddie and the sacrifices he made. "Officer Eddie Thomas....At Peace with Honor".

What a tragedy this is by losing a police officer at such a young age. God has called him home for a reason that we, here on earth don't understand.
"A POLICEMAN'S PRAYER"
BROTHER WHEN YOU WEEP FOR ME REMEMBER THAT IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
LAY ME DOWN AND WHEN YOU LEAVE REMEMBER I'LL BE AT YOUR SIDE...IN EVERY DARK AND DREARY ALLEY I'LL BE THERE AS YOU SLOWLY TREAD, ON EVERY STREET CORNER IN THE DRIVING SNOW I'LL HOLD YOUR COAT AND YOU WILL KNOW.
IN PLACES WHERE THE DEVIL IS AFRAID TO WALK...
AT DOORS WHERE YOU MEET RESISTANCE...
IN HOUSES WHERE CHILDREN HIDE,,,
YOU KNOW I'LL BE AT YOUR SIDE.
THE PLACE FROM WHICH I NOW RESPOND IS OVERSTAFFED WITH HEROES GONE...MEN WHO ANSWERED ONE LAST JOB AND DID IT WELL.
AS POLICEMEN WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A CARD DEALT IN OUR HAND...A CARD WE HOPE WE NEVER PLAY BUT WE HOLD IT THERE ANYWAY.
THE CARD IS SOMETHING WE IGNORE AS WE STAND ON THAT THIN BLUE LINE EVERY TOUR...FOR WE KNOW THAT WE ARE THE ONLY PRAYER FOR MANY OUT THERE.
SO REMEMBER, AS YOU WIPE YOUR TEARS, THE JOY I HAVE KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE YEARS...AS THE JOB I LOVED TO DO I PRAY THAT THIS THOUGHT WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.

God Bless You and your family, friends and you sisters and brothers who wear the badge of law enforcement

Eddie worked with our department a couple years ago. He was witty, fun to work with and a character to say the least. I personally enjoyed the entertaining side of his personality. He made the job fun and was oh so energetic. I was very shocked to hear the news of his passing but know that every aspect of our life is in God's hand, the day we are born and the day we leave this earth.

All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.. Psalm 139:16.
We can have that assurance that his plan for our lives is perfect even in times we don't understand....
