Chief Pimentel,

Rest well 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 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.

My condolances to Chief Pimentel's family. Chief Pimentel was a great man and role model to his officers and community. Chief loved his job! I had the honor of working for Chief Pimentl when he was the Chief of Police at the Brownsville I.S.D. I wouldn't have accomplished what I have so far in my career with out his advise. Chief Pimentel will be watching over his officers from heaven. Thank you for your service and dedication R.I.P

God bless you Chief.
Thanks for all you gave 'cause no man could give more.
Condolences to those who loved him.

Those who serve and protect are too frequently ridiculed by the poor
behavior of a tiny percentage of those who wear the badge.
I wish this great man's life received a 10th of the media coverage, nation wide, as the Ferguson riots.
