Rest easy blue warrior, your shift is done.

Thank you for your service, courage, bravery, dedication and sacrifice.

Your brothers and sisters of the thin blue line and your family will carry on, though with heavy hearts. The citizens of Pierce County and Washington State will remember you forever.

I don't know if I had met you or not, but for my family that still reside in the area and I are honored to have such the warrior in our midst working for Pierce County.

Deputy Mundell, your area has suffered enough. I PRAY to GOD that you are the last, if not forever, for a very long time.

You did your duty. You've earned a rest. My heart and my prayers go out to those you have left behind. God bless and may you rest peacefully.

Kent, you saved the life of my daughter's husband and my grandchildrens' father. I could never find enough words to say thank you and I will be eternally grateful. At the same time, I am so deeply grieved that Lisa has lost her husband and Kirsten and Austin their father.

Jesus defined a hero when He said in John 15:13
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends." Each one who wears the uniform of a law enforcement officer has gone beyond that definition. For you have made the commitment, that if called upon, you will lay down your life not only for your friends but also for complete strangers and even for those you may not even like. You are our true heroes. You are our true super-heroes. I salute each and everyone of you. Thank you for your service.

Please, stay safe.

I am sooo sorry. I lost my son a year and half ago and I can say I know how it is to walk in your shoes. My sons children were 3 & 5 so they will not remember their father. Thankfully your children will remember their Hero father.
Cling to your family and God and you can get mad. This Hero should be on earth not gone.
Pray to God and hold His Hand. Its a rough road to walk.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"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.

Deputy Mundell,
I saddens me to hear about another good officer down. I will say a prayer for your family, but rest assured they will be well taken care of and your children, their children and their children's children will grow up to be so proud of you. You will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace now brother, we'll take it from here.
