Chip, I knew you for around 20 years. In all that time I never saw a time when you were not happy and willing to help someone in need. A RARE individual indeed. You will be missed by all who knew you.

I never had the pleasure of knowing you. And our paths only crossed because of one man's hatred on Christmas eve. I do have the pleasure of working with your son who is a commendable man. Thank you for your selfless service, god bless.

Psalm 23 ("The Lord is My Shepherd")

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Lieutenant Michael John "Chip" Chiapperini...

Mike- seeing Kim and the girls just breaks my heart. None of us will ever know the pain and void they feel. I will always believe that you were put in that restaurant that night so George could say good bye to you. And I will always regret not coming over to the table where you and Kim were. We will always remember your smile that lit up a room. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with your family.

Lieutenant Chiapperini,

Thank you for your service. You are now alive and 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 21 months. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.
