May this faceless coward live in torment. May he never stop running and never rest. "For God will repay each person according to what they have done." (Romans 2:6)

Get some rest my brother, we have the watch. We will get him.

Do not stand at my grave and weep..
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry..
I am not there. I did not die.

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

As you departed the bonds of this earth and touched the face of God, know that the service and dedication you had for your department, its fellow officers and the citizens of your community will never be forgotten. May God comfort in this time of sorrow your family, your fellow officers and all those whose lives you have touched. You have served your time in hell, now rest comfortably in the arms of God. RIP, we’ll take it from here.

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.

My prayers and sympathies go out to Officer Ellis's wife and sons, as well as to his Bardstown PD family. They all lost a crucial part of their family. Officer Ellis will be remembered forever as an honest, cheerful, hard-working officer who worked every day to make his community a better, safer place. In fact, he was murdered while attempting to do something as simple as clearing a roadway, in order to protect people from harm. To Officer Ellis, you may rest in peace and take comfort in the knowledge that no law enforcement officer in the Commonwealth of Kentucky will rest easy until your killer is found and brought to justice. You have many brothers and sisters in blue who will look out for your family and your community. RIP brother, we'll take it from here.
