John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

We have a park named after another fallen officer named Jerry Ivey. It happened in the 1970's. He was killed by a man who later escaped prison and caused more harm before being recaptured. It happened in Salina, KS.

I never knew you, but have had the pleasure of serving under your brother. If his work ethic, professionalism and kind demeanor are any kind of baseline for your family’s virtue, then the world is at a substantial loss without you. May God bless your family, and those in their lives. RIP.

This is for nick's wife. I received a letter today from my aunt toni and it was a check for $225 dollars. My husband and I are going through a rough patch he lost his job and right after, our daughter was born. My aunt toni included in the letter that she saw on facebook about your husband and that you wanted people to do 225 random acts of kindness in his honor. I think that is amazing and what a wonderful memory that will be for your children!! My aunt toni lost her husband my uncle Robbie (Robert Hardesty FBI) and it devastated our family but we have stayed strong and his memory lives on. You and your family are in my prayers. I am so happy to be a part of the random acts of kindness and will surely pay it forward. Your husband would be so proud.

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"
