I know your hearts are heavy and you miss having me there
But I'm with God in heaven where no one has a care
From the time I was conceived God had for me a plan
He wanted me to get involved to help my fellow man
I know some were against it but God knows what is best
Now that I'm at home with Him I have perfect rest
Heaven is so beautiful I'm walking streets of gold
I'm now serving others including saints of old
As difficult as it may be please don't hold a grudge
Remember this my loved ones God alone will judge
Please don't be sad and mourn for me I'm doing what I love
Serving God and guarding you from heaven up above

I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
You left us doing what you chose to do.
What you were trained to do.
Performing the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do.....serving your community making a better and safer place for us all. God Bless you Deputy Sheriff Douglas Leon Hanna. Rest In Peace.

Doug you were a good man and a great friend. I will miss getting on facebook and playing war commander beating the tar out of people. you will be missed greatly my friend not only by us (your brother's in blue) but by many of the residence of Washita County. You stood for something every Officer looked up too. You were a father, husband, family man, and a brother in arms. god rest your soul we have the watch from here brother...............

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.
