To the family, friends, and colleagues of Lieutenant Scott Travis:

From the beginning of time after Cain killed his brother, Abel, there has been a need for law enforcement officers to protect the weak and to bring evildoers to justice. This work is necessary in a sinful world and is dangerous. In modern times, some seven hundred and fifty-nine law enforcement officers have sacrificed their lives to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Today, we honor the sacrifice of Lieutenant Scott Travis, of the Bullitt County, Kentucky, Detention Center; who suffered a fatal heart attack while clearing snow from the walkways in front of the Bullitt County, Kentucky, Detention Center during a heavy snowstorm on Thursday, March 5, 2015.

Lord God, we are grateful for the life of Lieutenant Scott Travis. He died serving us. Help us never to forget. Help us celebrate the life of Lieutenant Scott Travis and honor his sacrifice. Be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

As for the citizens of Bullitt County, Kentucky, help them to faithfully equip their law enforcement officers with the best tools to protect their county. May their training be adequate to the task. Help the citizens of Bullitt County, Kentucky, to remember to pay their law enforcement officers fairly and treat them with respect. Help the citizens of Bullitt County, Kentucky, to obey the law and treat each other with dignity so as not to add to the burden of crime and pain to their county.

The time for mourning will soon pass. We have now remembered and celebrated the life lost in this great tragedy. As the family, friends, and colleagues of Lieutenant Scott Travis go forward, they must celebrate the good things in their lives; and to celebrate life itself!

Finally, Lord God, we pray for the families, friends, and colleagues of all the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty and we thank you for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and colleagues so they might find healing. Help their law enforcement organizations support the families of these fallen heroes. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that their law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they lived and served might be stronger because of their lives and their deaths.

Now, Lieutenant Scott Travis, may the Lord bless you, and keep you: the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. Amen.

In His Service,

For Lieutenant Scott Travis:

The rigors of the law-enforcement and the corrections work are many, and they are physically and mentally strenuous. It takes it's toll on us heavily. It therefore behooves all of us to remain as fit as possible, though in spite of this we can still encounter a heart attack or stroke. It is therefore wise to not only be aware of these conditions but to seek medical attention immediately for ourselves or others without delay.
We regret that our brother Scott would be the next law-officer to leave us without the benefit of immediate help when it was easily available.
We pray for his family, co-workers, friends and all who care about him. May the be ready to reach-out to one another at this time.
We proudly render Lt. Scott Travis, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
