In the simple performance of duty,

he pinned on a badge,
checked his gear with a practiced eye,
and kissed his loved ones good-bye.

In the simple performance of duty,
he reported for work,
joked with his buddies at roll call,
and made his last trip down the squadroom hall.

In the simple performance of duty,
he answered the call
to help the helpless, to find the lost,
no matter the danger or how great the cost.

In the simple performance of duty,
he lay down his life,
for those in peril he tried to save,
our brave friend went to his grave.

In the simple performance of duty,
we honor his deed,
as we carry him to rest in a flag-draped casket,
long after the world has forgotten, we shall never forget.

Never judge or regret, what he did, In the simple performance of duty.

Rest in peace brother, you will always be remembered.

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 Washington County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother.

Unbelievable. Sickening. You didn't deserve this brother. My deepest sympathies to you and your loved ones. I can't even imagine... I would give anything to be one of the units down there and have the honor and mission of hunting that coward down. Rest easy bro. Keep watching over us.
