Hey Kent,

I'm on dayshift now if you can believe it!! I know, I know - you and I on dayshift was just not something we ever though we belonged on, but nonetheless I'm here and I miss you like crazy.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you, and we miss you very, very much. Nothing like a "Woooo hoooo!" to get our day going.

You take care and watch over everyone. It's just not the same without you, brother. It's just not.

I am very sorry to see the loss of Deputy Mundell. I met Kent last January while at the DHS Hazmat training in Anniston Alabama. I sat next to him on the bus ride from the airport and immediately discovered he was one of the most upbeat and friendliest people I've ever met. It was my first trip to the facility and he took it upon himself to help me become familiar with their layout and procedures. We also spoke about coming from the same area of the country and enjoying our visit to the south. He talked about getting a new pickup and planning a road trip with his family for BMX racing.
He left no doubt in my mind he was not only an excellent Law Enforcement Officer but a great dad and husband. He openly expressed to a total stranger how much he loved spending time with his family. I can only imagine he was an incredible person to work with as well.
I'm a person who only knew Kent for one week but he left an impression, and I can only feel sorrow for his loss. I pray for his Family both at home and in Law Enforcement.

It's January 18th and I'm thinking about you and I'm crying and I hope that the pain stops someday. I went to the movies with Austin today and he is such an awesome little man, and he's so strong. I wish I could talk to you face to face right now instead of crying. I love you Uncle and I hate this.

I stood in the Tacoma Dome along with thousands of your Brothers and Sisters to offer your Family and Friends a small bit of comfort in this awful time. I only hope that our gesture was successful in some small way. Rest in Peace, Brother, and know that you were loved and respected by your entire community.

My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.

To the family of Deputy Mundell, I'd like to thank you for sharing his life with us in the montage. It reaffirmed that he left here knowing that ther was love around him. If you can take solace from his love for his family, it might make this tranistion a bit easier. To his children, your father is a hero and a warrior going where others feared to tread. As a father myself I wish there was something I could do or say to take some of the pain away...I do believe his final tour showed what a god cop he was and I would have been proud to walk through a door with him. To his fellow officers, after having been through a few of these, the pain numbs after a while but you'll be able to keep him in your stories and keep his memories alive with laughter. Stay Strong.
To Deputy Mundell,Godspeed warrior...youve done your job well, and we who remain will take it from here.

His Judgment 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"
