John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I was honored and humbled to carry Deputy Netherland's flag and bracelet for the 2014 Law Enforcement United bicycle ride from Chesapeake to D.C. Presenting the flag and bracelet was a very emotional event which I will remember forever.

My thoughts and prayers are with Deputy Netherland and his family. I will have the Honor to ride with the Police Unity Tour from New Jersey to Washington DC in May. In a show of support and remembrance for Deputy Netherland, I shall be wearing a Law enforcement Memorial bracelet inscribed with his name and hope to turn it over to the family during police week. Please remember "It is not how these officers died that made them heros it is how they lived". God Bless Deputy Netherland and all that knew him. Be safe.

Deputy Netherland,

You are joining the ranks of those who served and fell before your time. They will greet you with open loving arms.

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, family and 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 the past two years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

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.
