"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Winget, we have the watch...

”I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

I'm still in shock and I can't believe what happened. I just saw you at the wedding; laughing and having a good time. I've been in tears most of the day. I know you're gone, but I'm not ready to accept it yet. You were one of the greatest cops I've ever known. I know you loved the job, and you probably would've done it until we gave you a VIP shirt (kidding). You will be dearly missed. I always enjoyed listening to your old war stories. You were always glad to pickup C7 for us, or grab us a water if we needed something. We're all hurting right now, but we're trying stick together and pull through. I'll forever be indebted to all of the wisdom you gave me over the years. I'll never forget your big smile and your laugh. Vaya con dios sir. We'll miss you. Keep an eye out for us up there.

Im sorry what happened to you today. I know you left home this morning thinking that you were going to come home safely at the end of your shift. This is hard for all of us to cope with. I know I dont know you personally, but you are a brother to me. I will be praying for you and your family. May god watch over you and your family. -Jeremy
