I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

His Judgement Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

Dear Officer Phillip Davis,

Even though I did not know you, we shared the same POST standards, we rolled the same streets of AL, we chased some the same bad guys. This makes me and others like me related to you. And for that, we have lost a brother today to a senseless, animalistic act by a human being. No words will ever make this right or feel better. I can only pray that your extended family and friends embrace your family tightly...and hold on. And just know, many others like myself will continue our fight on the streets with no hesitation or second thoughts. Your death, as wrong and dispicible as it was, will serve a purpose to those of us left here to fight. we will remember you, we will be more careful, we will fight harder and we will never, never give up. In your honor and to preserve ours. Rest with God my friend.
