Whatever our duty, or wherever we serve, we are all brothers and sisters in this most honorable calling. We have lost yet another brother who we must never forget. He has served well both his community and our country.

My deepest sympathy to both his family and his law enforcement family. My thoughts and prayers are with them. May he rest in eternal peace.

Officer Jones, your life was taken by something less than human and whereas he'll become nothing more than a footnote in history, you will be long remembered and honored.

For your served your nation and then the City of Norfolk and for that I thank you. So long as those who know and love you best keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never TRULY be gone.

My prayers also go out to the other officer who was wounded. I pray most of all that we do not see his name listed here.

Officer Jones, may you forever Rest in Peace and God Bless both you and your wounded colleague.

Greater Love Hath No Man....

The Final Inspection

The policeman stood and faced his God,which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To my church have you been true?

The policeman squared his shoulders and said.

"No, I guess I ain't because those of us who carry a badge

can't always be a Saint."

I've had to work most Sundays

and at times my talk is rough,

and sometimes I've been violent,

because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...

though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got to steep.

And I never passed a cry for help

though at times I shook with fear,

and sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.

They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much, but if you don't...I'll understand"

There was a silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.

As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman.

You've borne you burdens well.

Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets.

You've done your time in Hell"

My thoughts and prayers to your family. No greater sacrifice can be made. The city of Norfolk, the state of Va and the USA all owe this family and this warrior's memory an non-payable debt of gratitude. To this fellow officers of the NPD and all in my old home of Tidewater, my condolences to you. Gone but never forgotten; a true credit to the USN and thin blue line. Rest in peace my fellow officer & shipmate.
