It is always a sad day when a law enforcement officer dies, even worse when it is the line of duty. You are the line between chaos and civilization. Your sacrifice allows us to rest easy, knowing you are there protecting us.

My prayers are with the family and friends of our fellow Deputy Sheriff.

Some burdens are heavy,
Especially today,
It’s then we stay lifted up in prayer,
And ask God to strengthen us in every way;

He will not leave us,
Nor at any time forsake you,
Because his being our Heavenly Father,
Strengthens the family anew.
