Reflections for Special Agent Joseph Michael Peters

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.

Joe is my cousin and I truly miss him. I think of him often and consider him my hero. This has been a rough year to say the least.

Joe, I has taken me a very long time to be able to write. I carry your memory with me daily. You are my hero and my motivation to get the job done. Please know you are not forgotten and your sacrifice was not in vain. There are those just like us who will never quit and who refuse to leave anyone behind. You know I will never forget you and God willing, no one around me ever will. I love you, my brother. "Prairie Fire"

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Joseph was killed.

To Joseph's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Special Agent Peters gave to his country and its citizens, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 6, 2013.

The sacrifices these men and women of our Armed Forces make for one another is unimagined unless you have walked in those shoes. The sacrifices the family makes for the military member and the Citizens of this Nation is even more mind boggling. For civilians who have had no affiliation with a military family, it is beyond comprehension. Thoughts, prayers and the deepest respect to this Soldier and his family.
