It is written in the Word, blessed are we, the peacemakers, for we are called children of God. We do his work every day. You laid your life down in the service of others, just as Christ served the church. God bless you Sgt. Renfro. He is with your family. And you are with him. There is a poem that I heard once, from a movie about survival, it applies so dearly to our work and how we lay it all out there every day, whether it's our last or whether we have one more to lay it all out there again tomorrow. I say it each morning before my shift, right after my prayer. "Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live or die on this day. Live and die on this day." Rest easy brother. Look out for us all up there. <><

Sergeant Renfro was not just a hero in the law enforcement arena.

He was a hero on the youth football field -- to my son and his fifteen or so teammates -- as a coach and role model to this fine group of sixth graders.

With many years of youth sports under my belt, I watched this great man teach, encourage, and inspire a group of boys to achieve the best of themselves and to do it with class, with sportsmanship, and with honor... something not often found in youth coaches.

Yes, Sgt. Renfro served his community through his vocation, but he also served it as a dedicated father and as a coach and mentor of our youth... of our future.

Thank you, Sean, for the influence -- the impact -- you had on my son. God has blessed our family for having known you and we will miss you... my son will miss you. May God continue to bless your family and may you rest in peace in His presence.

Good bye, Sean. Godspeed and rest in peace. It was just one season, but we will not forget you.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO! May God
Give the family and friends the strength and faith to deal with this tragic loss. Words can not express my sorrow!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

No greater sacrifice can be made. Stepping up to help others when he was not on duty is the sign of a man who was called to the profession. It wasn't just a job to him. May your family find peace in the fact that a hero was doing what comes naturally. Rest in peace.
