Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Steven E. Cox

Deputy Cox, my brother responded to you that night. My dad called to tell me, but I haven't been able to get ahold of my brother to see how he's coping. I am so sorry this has happened to you. It just breaks me that you and your wife and baby don't get to spend the Holidays together because you were just doing your job. I don't understand why these things happen to the best officers. My heart is with your family and the Sheriffs Dept. Take care of each other in the tough times ahead.

Steve, I did not know you personally, but it didn't matter, you were a brother in our law enforcement family. I pray for your family, friends and co-workers that they keep the faith while you watch over them as their guardian angel. Rest in peace knowing that we will not forget you or what you gave to the community.

"We Remember the Officers"
We remember the officers who changed our lives,
The men and woman who protected us day and night,
People who respect for their dedication to the cause,
For when faced with danger, they never even pause.

We remember the officers who always stood true,
Whatever the color of uniform, brown gray or blue,
With pride and integrity they say "To serve and protect",
For the giving of their life, we offer our respect.

We remember the officers who we never really knew,
Persons strong enough to answer the challenge are few,
With heavy hearts we mourn the officers in eternal rest,
There's more to these people than the badge on their chest.
By Brad Miller

Deputy Sheriff Steve Cox, may you rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this horrible time. We saw you come into the jail almost every day as you made our streets safer...only to be taken in this senseless way. It will be strange not seeing you come through that door anymore. But know you will not be forgotten. Thank you for your service to our community and your ultimate sacrifice. You are truly a hero. Rest in peace.

Brother-

Though we worked at different Precincts and never formally met, I'm sure we've crossed paths. I've heard nothing but praise about the partner and friend you were from those who knew you better than I. God be with you and your family, partner.

I will be strong and courageous, I will not be terrified, or discouraged; for the lord my God is with me wherever I go. “Joshua 1:9”
The Lord asked, Police Officer, what do you ask of me? Lord, give me courage and give me strength. Give my fellow brothers the courage to do what is right, the wisdom to discover it and the will to enforce it. I ask you to look over those I have served. Those I have spent my life defending. The Lord stated “Those who live in the service of others will always be a servant of the Lord.”
Always remember legendary acts may never be forgotten but HEROES………. LIVE.......... FOREVER.”

Aloha Deputy Sheriff Steve Cox,

You are not alone now. Our fallen and beloved Honolulu Police Officer, Steve Favela is with you in Heaven.

There are so many men and women who continually put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities and our country safe. To these men and women who work tirelessly and selflessly, may God instill in each and private citizen the desire to pray for your safe return to your loved ones, every single day. Freedom isn't free. The prices that are paid precious lives and leave families and fellow officers devastated.

May your family, friends, and fellow officers find comfort in this Hawaiian prayer that comes from the, "I" which represents the Great Almighty. To us, it represents our Lord, Jesus Christ.

May God bless you now and forevermore,
Sam, Moana, and Kawehi Molale

The Peace of " I ".
A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no,
