I wish to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Special Agent Sheldon for his dedication to duty and his many years of faithful service as a combat veteran and special agent. I also wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to his family and loves ones during this time of loss. Well done good and faithful servant.

NEHEMIAH 4:14 After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

MATTHEW 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

1 john 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
