Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Roger Dale Rice, Jr.

Having worked with several different law enforcement agencies, I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family at home and at work. Take your rest brother. Though you only served as a officer of the law for 18 months, your service will not go unnoticed. God called you home and you had no choice but to answer. Rest in heavenly peace.

Psalms 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
I pray for Rogers wife, children and his parents that God will give then strength to get through this. I have known Roger for many years along with his parents and I know the pain this family has gone through already losing their other son. Roger was a fine young man and I know that we don't understand God's plan, but I do know that today Roger is rejoicing in heaven with his bother. Stacy, Debbie and Roger look to God for strength in this time of grief because he will see you through this. I love you and remember your son was a very special man. Kellie Smith

For Deputy Sheriff Roger Rice:

Our duty as patrol officers takes us to the threshold of numerous situations that pose a threat to our life. Each day the patrol officer faces the possibilty of not returning home. We rely upon one another for our safety even though the worst can still occur. We regret learning that our brother Robert would this day be the next law officer to die in service to others.

We pray for Roger's family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.

As a retired state trooper and Lake County (FL) deputy sheriff I am proud to render Deputy Roger Rice a final salute.
