Reflections for Wildlife Conservation Officer David Lynn Grove

To the family, friends and co-workers of Officer David Grove-I wish we didn't have people around like the suspect in this case, whose evil deeds caused such harm and sorrow. I want you to know there are law enforcement Officers across the country who recognize the service of your loved one and will honor him and who also are concerned about you during this tragedy.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, co-workers and dispatchers. A Game/Wildlife Officers job is more dangerous than most people know because most everyone you contact is armed one way or another. Please know that you will be remembered and I thank you for your sacrific for protecting the resources of your state. As a mother of a Trooper & significant other of a Fish & Wildlife Officer (now deceased) and having worked through an Officer involved shooting it takes a toll on everyone. May you rest in peace and know that people care.

Your life is a shining example for those left behind.
Although I didn't know you at the level I would have liked, I was able to form an opinion of you based on our interactions at the training school. Words that come to me when I think of WCO Dave Grove are; honor, integrity, dedication, humor, faith and faithfulness. The last few days at the PGC have been somber but moving at a dizzying pace as we work to assist your family and plan a fitting tribute for a hero who was taken from us far too soon. God bless your family and know that you will be sorely missed. I'm a richer person for having known you, even a little.

I AM A WARRIOR — by Jon F. Hooper
I stand with God. I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary.
I fight for those who can’t. I fight for Justice.
I fight for the oppressed and the downtrodden.
And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, for I serve to protect the innocent.
It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries.
Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee.
Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor.
Cry not at my passing, for it was my honor to fight for you.
Shed not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy:
For now, I stand with God!
