Sgt Wilson,
I cant believe you were gone. I was coming home from work when i spotted one of our undercover cars running code. I later learned that we had an officer down. I remember doing a ride a long with Lerch and you offered to teach us how to do drug interdiction. It seems like yesterday that i was sitting in Roll Call talking to you and C.W. I learned a lot from you.

May you RIP, you are a true hero. People don't understand how dangerous domestics are. May God Bless you and continue watch over your family. I instruct domestic violence in the police academy, and these kids will never understand the seriousness of these complaints.

Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have. I commend you for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty. Upholding the oath you swore to do. Serving your community making a better and safer place for us all. Thank you May you Rest in Peace Sir.

Sergeant Wilson,

You have joined the ranks of others who chose to "Serve and Protect". Enjoy your rest 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.
