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 Ingham County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Romans 13:4
For government is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, because it does not carry the sword for no reason. For government is God's servant, an avenger that brings wrath on the one who does wrong.

R.I.P brother, we have your watch from here.

May God comfort your family and co-workers during this very difficult time. Have found the following verses comforting in difficult times such as these. Below is from Revelation 21

3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

For Deputy Sheriff Grant Whitaker:

The risks that the law-officer takes while on patrol are many, but the vehicle in which he patrols also possesses a threat that must always be near to the conscious. Law-officers are counted in the cavalcade-of-carnage that occurs on our highways across the country, and on an annual basis. We regret that Grant would be counted among that tally for this year.
We pray for Grant's family, co-workers, friends, and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to his family in the days ahead.
We are proud to render to Deputy Sheriff Grant Whitaker, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.
