Reflections for Police Officer Forrest Edward "Dino" Taylor

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization.
As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
I have given my life so that others may live in peace.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.
You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

Right now I am feeling so lost. I called or text you so many times lately. You always built me up, pushed me to do the right thing. I confided in you my thoughts about everything, bike clubs, my daughter, you name it. You were my strength when i lost it. I really dont know what to do right now. I will do my best to keep my promise to you but forgive me if I am not as strong as 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"

To a Hero and the Family left behind,

My God grant you strength in this time of seperation. My grandfather passed away recently and I'll never forget that he told me to never say goodbye. He told my to always part with the simple phrase, "I'll see you again." Gods grace grants us an eternity together in His glory. I would like to say thank you to the Hero that gave all to serve his community and to the family that supported him. I ride with the Roughnecks MC and I fly my colors everyday not just for my club but in rememberance of ALL officers lost. I see that Officer Forrest "Dino" Taylor was a follow motorcycle enthusiast. I look forward to the day I get to ride those streets of gold by your side and call you brother. Godspeed Brother. And may your children know their father is a true hero. Be proud to call him Dad. If you are ever in need of an encouraging word or a simple uplifting prayer I am always willing to help. 406-600-0883
