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.

Such a tragedy. He was grinning in our office as an eager young intern student. Then he went to our academy to earn his badge and flashed that trademark smile as he showed it to us. He left for his first duty station for a few years before returning home to begin his family as he worked with us. Then he went to help with a fugitive operation in a neighboring state and was taken.
This is what we do, but the price is terribly high.
We miss Josie.
Some wounds never seem to heal.
But there is comfort in knowing that his faith was so strong - the pillar of his central character.

Thank you for your service, brother. The world would be hell without people like you. God rest you well.

Romans 13:1 reads "Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God, the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God." People today have no respect for secular authorities and don't realize that it is a command by God to respect those placed in these positions. Please find comfort in the words of our heavenly Father recorded at 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 God's promise for U.S. Marshal Wells provide comfort for his family, friends, and colleagues.
