May the Lord Jesus accept our brother into His loving arms and grant him eternal rest.

Deputy Boehm died doing what he loved. I'm sure he was like most of us. He started and ended each day with a smile, a joke and assurances he would be back tomorrow.

May Jesus also bless Deputy Boehm's family during this troubled time. may his grace and peace flow to them like water.

Deputy Boehm was a very good personal friend of mine during my tenure at White Oak High School where he was the SRO. I will always have fond memories of him during our lunches with him and the principals several time a month. He didnt know any strangers and was always will to help out no matter how big or small the situation was. His presence will be missed next year as the students return to school and his face is no longer smiling and greeting them. His great sense of humor and love of people is what truely made him stand out above the rest. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. It is with a heavy heart that I say I will truely miss you Deputy Boehm.

It seems like our conversation Friday morning the 13th keeps playing through my head now. I'll never hear that laugh again. I've known Bam Bam and his wife for over 16 years. I distantly married into their family and have all the memories now close to my heart. The cookouts, days hanging out letting the kids play together. It hurts to breathe right now; I wish it were a dream. To Kimmy, the girls, Daniel and the rest of the family ...I love you guys.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
