Josh,

I don't know how to start to write this reflection ... this is harder than I thought. I recall the huge smile that you had even late at night. I know each day you are looking down on all of the Waxahachie PD Officers. I know your wife and family are doing well. I only wish I could have spent more time while working with Ron and the other PD Explorers working city wide events or ridding out. I will never forget your amazing turnout at your funeral. God Speed #121 and your are always 10-8 on every shift.

Regards,

I was one of the responding State Troopers to this scene, and also conducted the initial crash investigation. Terrible scene that night. But justice prevailed in the end. 55 year sentence and has to do 27 years before coming up for parole.

Josh,

Its Christmas day. I write this reflection with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. We, your shift, are working today, as we have many many years before. But its different this time without you here. We all wish you were with us Josh, but we know that you are celebrating with our Lord on his birthday. I can only imagine the celebration that is taking place right now in heaven. I can see you smiling with that bright gold tooth and clapping your hands in praise. Your family is doing great, they miss you tremendously as im sure you know. Keep an eye on us buddy, we need all the help we can get in this crazy world we live and work in. We miss you and love you.

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"

God full of mercy who dwells on high
Grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence
In the lofty heights of the holy and pure
who shine as the brightness of the heavens
to the soul of Josh Williams
who has gone to his eternal rest.

His resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden
Therefore; the Master of mercy will care for him
under the protection of His wings for all time
And bind his soul in the bond of everlasting life.
God is his inheritance and he will rest in peace
and let us say AMEN.

"For we in this world today-shall be remembered,
We few...We happy few...We Band of Brothers.....
For he whom sheds his blood with me on this day-
Shall be, My Brother.
Lest ye say it proudly,
We are but warriors for the working day." Shakespear

GO walk the streets of gold Brother Williams...we'll take the watch from here....until we meet on heavens golden shores. God Bless you and the Williams family.
