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.

May God hold your wife and two children in the palm of his hands for support, lifting up of the grief and know they had a very special father, husband and Patrol Officer.

There is no other bravest and honorable people, like Officer Deeds who puts himself directly in harms way for the rest of us, each and every day.

When I start my tour of duty God,
wherever crime may be,
As I walk the darkened streets alone,
let me be close to thee.

Please give me understanding
with both the young and old.
Let me listen with attention
until their story's told.

Let me never make a judgment
in a rash of callous way.
But let me hold my patience,
let each man have his say.

Lord f some dark and dreary night,
I must give my life,
Lord with your everlasting love
protect those special in my life.

Thanks you for your service to your community and county and state. You are in are prayers in Washington State.
