Reflections for Border Patrol Agent Alexander Irving Giannini

Dear Alex,

You came to my mind tonight as I reflected on my time with past jobs, and although I only knew you for a short time, you were my favorite person to work with. You always had a smile on your face, you were encouraging to others when they were down, and you were always happy and joking around, bringing joy to everyone around you. I'm so sad to find out about this accident and that you were taken from this world way too soon. Rest in peace.

Agent Giannini,
On today, the 7th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country and to the Patrol-especially considering since the anniversary of your EOW is the same date as the birthday of the U.S. Border. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Border Patrol Agent Alexander Giannini and the extended law enforcement family of the United States Border Patrol. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

Agent Giannini,

Rest well in the arms of the Lord.

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 three years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.
