Detective Kevin,

God bless you for your sacrifice and god watch over your family as they deal with this tragedy. Thank you for your service, you will never be forgotten, nor will your family. My son in law was electrocuted in 2004, he was on duty in Indiana and I never knew the suppot that can come from the other officers from all over the country, so rest assured you family will find "comfort" through this difficult time.
Mrs. Orr and children my heart goes out to you, just know that we are all here for you, be thankful that your husband was always there to help other people out, he loved what he thought he should do. I'm very sorry that you have to go through this but God has a plan for us all, just remember the good times. God bless you all.

“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.

Rest in peace Detective Orr. May your family, friends and colleagues find the strength to cope at this difficult time. My sympathy to your Pilot also. Wires are a Heli-Pilots worst nightmare. A terrible tragedy.

November 22, 2006

Sir, you have not died in vane. Your heroic efforts will live on forever in the memories of the ones who knew and loved you. Your shift is not over. Like those who came before you there is still work for you to do. Hopefully you will not be called on to completed your shift for some time. But there will come a day when there is an Officer/Deputy who is alone and in pain. Who will be in need of comfort and for someone to show them the way home, and that is when you will be called upon to finish your shift. Like Deputy Wright and those who went before you. Rest now brother we got it from here.

"Final Call"

An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do
Little Did He Know, This One Is bleeds Blue.

Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
"Follow Me, My Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way."
"Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through."
"Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine, were all faimly I'm A Cop, Too."
