Reflections for Police Recruit Kelley Chase

Thank you for your time of service. I salute you and your family.

Randalyn Benson
Survivor of Chief James Leonard Speer

October 18, 2012 fragile, sudden, broken,... in the wake of such a loss,
we are haunted by things we don’t, and
may never, understand.

Yet the solace we seek may not come from
answers. So we look for comfort in the
belief of love's everlasting connection.

May that love lift you and hold you close, and give you peace.

Chief Todd Boycher & members of the City of Roxboro, NC Police Department

Officer Chase,

You have joined the ranks of those who served and fell before you. Rest well in the presence of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with loving, caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name, Amen”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for 20 months. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Oklahoma City Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother.
