Thank you Aaron for being willing to place the life of another above your own knowing that we can never know how things will turn out on any type of call. The past 13 years of working together has been in my mind constantly of late. Your willingness to help with whatever whenever is a credit to you and to your family. May the tender mercies of the Lord be with your family in their grief and sorrow. Rest in peace my friend.

No matter how many times I've read the story and seen your pic on this page I still find it hard to believe. A lot of us didn't see or hear you very often but I'm positive that anyone that ever met you would agree that you gave off a very positive vibe that we all admired. I know I did. Thanks Aaron. We'll miss ya.

Without a moments hesitation. Without a second thought. The person wearing St. Michael's Shield would give their life on the spot.
For a child wandering in harms way, for a drowning woman facing death, the officer would willingly draw his final breath.
Would each of us do the same? Could we all be that brave? What amazing courage it must take to decide it is not your own life you will save.

For all of those that wear a badge

A few years ago my friends and I went on a horseback riding trip down at Palo Duro Canyon in Amarillo. We noticed a teenager trapped on a cliff with his friend peering over the side at him standing there on the ledge screaming for help.
I was shocked and couldn't believe he had even tried to come down that rock.
Our guide said, "here we go again. This isn't unusual. Several times a week this happens. It is always the younguns doing this crap".
We were deep in the canyon and he had to ride away to be able to get a phone signal to have this idiot rescued. Even though the circumstances are somewhat different, this tragic incident with Trooper Beesley brought this back to mind.

God be with the family of this brave man. A true hero you are sir. So terribly sorry for this great loss to all who love you...really a great loss to the whole nation. I am so sorry.

a grateful citizen
