Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Douglas Leon Hanna

Roger, this is Larry Minson. I don't know if you'll remember, but I came to visit with you about 3 years ago at your office. I stayed with my mother who was nuring my terminally ill grandmother Minson for about 6 months or so when I was about 5 years old. You and I played together while I was there. My grandmother lived on the corner, south across the street from your family in that old burned out adobe house.
My son has been in law enforcement for about 20 years. I want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you, the department and the family of Douglas Hana as you all mourn his loss.

There are so many things that could be said about Deputy Doug Hanna, but as one of the many officers that had the pleasure/privilege of serving with him for the last 7 years. We always knew if we needed him, he would be right there to help us. He will be greatly missed by all, but never truly forgotten. Rest in peace Deputy Hanna, we will take it from here.

Deputy Hanna, Rest well in the arms 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 Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

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