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 met officer Libke a couple years before his death. His kindness and friendly demeanor overwhelmed us as he gave us directions in downtown OC. My house is a block away from the location that he was shot... I will never forget that night. Emergency lights everywhere, our neighborhood was on lockdown. It will always haunt me, seeing that burning house as we drove home. Rest well, you are missed and remembered by everyone in the state of Oregon.

Thank you for your service. It saddens me that you were killed while you were protecting others from harm.

I know there are no words that can take away the pain of your loved ones. I can only hope that they eventually find solace in knowing that your life was "given" and that you continue to give through your sacrifice.

Two years ago today somebody thought they had the right to take you. It still upsets me and still brings me sorrow. I have not forgotten you Rob. I often go hunting and think about how much you loved to hunt too. I sometimes feel guilty that I still get to hunt, but you don't. The year you left us I killed a deer for you. You must have been with me because I said I was gonna get one! I will do the same for you this year. I often look at my daughter and feel sadness that you don't get to see yours. However, your passing gives me a greater appreciation for the precious days I have. Miss you.

No need to say who I am

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.
