Officer Simmons

I heard of this tragedy while on my break at work. All I could think of is why. It should never have had to turn out this way. I will keep you, your family; both personal and professional; in my mind, thoughts and prayers. I send you and your family all of my respect for having accepted the real life risks of law enforcement. Your 27 years of doing so is not a favor that anyone could have asked of you. I wish you and you family peace as you begin your tour of duty in heaven. You are beyond deserving of all of Gods love. Make sure to watch over your loved ones and fellow officers. They will need it. Rest in peace!

It is a sad day when we loose a member of the family, even when its a member I don't personally know. Our prayers go out to the family members left behind. Please keep the knowledge in your hearts that there is no greater love than to lay your life down for another. I don't know all the details but as officers and especially SWAT officers we lay our lives down for one another every day. Ofc Simmons it is now time to rest in heaven for you have paid your dues. Know that your brothers and sister will stay and fight the fight until we someday meet in the presence of our Almighty Father and Lord Jesus Christ. Blessings
