Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Your family is in our prays. (My three year old said she is "so sad" for your children.)

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Joe was a good man, an excellent officer, and a very proud father of his children. I am glad to say that I knew him and prouder to say that he was a friend. We were training partners and roomed across the hall from each other at the police academy as rookies. He made the class fun and helped many an officer to finish their training. I remember Joe talking about his love of baseball and his love of being a Gamecock.

I love you brother,


Sgt Gary Zimmer
