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 recently watched the sentencing of the suspect and even though I am a 33 year veteran of Law Enforcement I shed many tears watching the video.
I want to send my most heartfelt condolences to Justin's father, wife, sister and all other family members of this tragedy.
Like Justin, my daughter has chosen to follow her father's footsteps into service in Law Enforcement, I can relate to the feelings Justin's father must have entertained from time to time. Never fear, our destiny's are charted by God and His Will will certainly be carried out in the end. We can be confident that we will be reunited with our loved ones in the days to come.
As I told my daughter, :I can't promise you that I will be here until the end your life, but I can tell you that I will love you until the end of mine.
Please accept this attempt to help you heal in the spirit it is intended.

It was on this Saturday night 1 year ago that your brother-in-law sent us the text that you had been killed. Still in the middle of the night, I was sure it was a bad dream; surely this couldn't have happened to someone so upbeat, positive and... well, someone like you... I have prayed continuously for your family: Rob, Kelly & Tim and especially Charlee. Thank you for your selfless service and sacrifice. Thank God justice has been served and may your memory live forever.

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, family and loving, caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name, Amen”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for the past three years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us see beyond the grave.

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
