Despite the hardships you have already lived with as a widower, this unnecessary and senseless tragedy occurs, leaving two boys without their father. My heart hurts for them. We will keep them in our prayers. May they find comfort knowing you are peacefully resting in the heavens above, as their guardian angel. Thank you for your service and bravery. Rest in peace.

What can be said at a time like this. No words can express what others feel at this time, what can we do to help the family, loved ones and all who knew Detective Chesley, except keep them in our prayers and let them know he did not die in vain. He was a HERO right up the moment he drew his last breath. We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers and know that Detective Cheslely is where GOD wanted him to be at this time of his life.
"God Knows"
You have my deepest sympathy,
but it really doesn't help.
Your grief goes beyond what words can express.

There's nothing anyone can say,
and nothing we can do to heal your broken heart
or take away your pain.

Let God take you in His arms and cover you with His love.
He knows the depth of your grief
and only He can give you peace.
He knows it will take time for your heart to heal,
and your loved one has a place that no one else can fill.

If there's any comfort let it be in this,
your loved one is with Jesus,
in a home that's filled with bliss.
There are no tears in Heaven, no more heartache and no pain,
only love and happiness for all eternity.

We must go on living and do the best we can,
then when Jesus calls our name
we will be with him again.

Remember this:
There is sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than 10,000 tongues.
They are the messengers of overwhelming grief,
of deep contrition, and of

I got goosebumps reading about what happened to Det. Chesley. My brother was 34 years old, working undercover and shot and killed during an attempted robbery.
There are no words to express how saddened I am that this has happened to another family. My thoughts and prayers are with Det. Chesley's children - may they someday be able to make sense out of this tragedy and always know that their dad was a true hero.

We are never prepared for the loss of a loved one, but God is always prepared to help us through that loss. May His presence begin the healing in your heart and soul, and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give.

Thank you for your unselfish service to others. You will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace.

It deeply saddens me to hear that we have lost a young, courageous detective.
