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.

Director Gorman this note is left to share with you as we approach the second anniversary of your end of watch. It was my privilege to meet your precious daughter Abbey Grace and her beautiful mother, Stephanie in D.C. for the memorial. It is amazing to learn you and my son both had John for first names and his end of watch was hours before yours on same day. We are from NJ. RIP Director Gorman.

"Blue Spirited Watch"

Even though the many Law Enforcement Officers from all of our Neighboring Countries around this world have Fallen and Ended their Watch.

Their Devoted Spirits have Risen and are now carrying on their destinies up above in Heaven while awaiting to be rejoined in the distant future by the ones they love.
