Sheriff Crum,

God holds you now. You have joined the ranks of many who chose to "Serve and Protect" and who are now reaping their eternal reward.

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 over 2 years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

May God Bless the family members of Sheriff Eugene Crum with his Love and peace as they deal with this awful incident. My deepest condolences to the children and grand children of Sheriff Crum as your father and grandfather died in the performance of his duties. Sheriff Crum is both a Top Cop and Hero. We in law enforcement would call a person like Sheriff Crum a "Cop's Cop". I'm proud of Sheriff Crum for truly trying to make a POSITIVE difference in his community, a community that elected him to be their Sheriff. In closing, Sheriff Eugene Crum is now with God in Heaven because he honorable served God's people in Mingo County.

They always knew they could be
They never thought they would be
God knows none ever should be
Killed in the line of duty

Some made their final stand
Their profession's last demand
They fell with a gun in hand
Killed in the line of duty

A routine too many cop
Some made one final stop
Someone's Mom or Pop
Killed in the line of duty

Others answered one last call
To a robbery, theft, or a brawl
They arrived only to fall
Killed in the line of duty

Some were dressed in brown, some blue
Some in grey, and plain clothes too
Some were dressed like me and you
Killed in the line of duty

May their souls be forever blessed
For they who are now at rest
Died doing what they loved best
Killed in the line of duty

Forgotten they never could be
Forgotten they never should be
Thought they never would be
Killed in the line of duty

God bless all those who fell
They are missed and loved so well
Let us pray and toll the bell
Those killed in the line of duty
