I am not involved in Law Enforcement but am struck by this officers story. My daddy served in the Air Force for 30 years. As a result of that service, he also was a quadriplegic. I know what this family went through and my heart bleeds for them. My daddy past 2 years after his paralysis.

I thank this officer and pray for his family.

"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.

George: I remember that night like it was yesterday. How just 15 min. before we went down on that call we were laughing and joking about another "fucked up night in Stone Park" and you saying you better get a new pen that there wasn't enough ink in the one you had " for all the paper work and bullshit we were going to have that night". For the times we worked together on the same shift you always had a smile and a good thing to say about everything or anyone. I remember the bar fight assist we responded on in the next town over and how we looked at each other and said "shit were the first ones here, fuck it want to go in," and when we did the whole bar was up for grabs and by the time everyone else got there we had everyone cuffed stuffed and sitting on the floor. Not only were you a good cop but also a great human being. You treated people with respect even those who didn't like that badge you wore. I told myself many times that is how a Police Officer should act like. Not strike back but to try to defuse the situation by talking to the offender and reassure him that its going to work out, as I watched you verbally take all the steam out of that person, it was magical!!!! It would have worked and was working that fateful night in 2005. We had everyone nice and quite and ready to go home even the very large man bare chested shirt off in that 4 degree weather in the parking lot. You even had him calm down as we both stood by him with a hightened alertness not really trusting him completely. I remember when you told him "go home, relax. You can come back tomorrow". I remember that voice from the direction of the over steroided bouncers in a deep slow motion state "He aint better never come back here that motherf----r". I remember looking at each other and then you moving towards the offender as he had already gone into a fit of rage from the commit that was thrown his way. From there on I only remember that the fight was on and that we had are hands full until back up arrived and even then it was crazy. I never saw you go over the hood of the squad and hit your head on the curb I only saw you standing there at the end like the rest of us tired but happy that peace had been restored and subjects were in custody. I remember that back in the station never a complaint from you about anything except lets get er done! I remember the phone call the next afternoon that informed me you were rushed to the hospital, but most of all I remember a couple days later when all were told you were more injured than originaly diagnosed. I remember I never had the chance to tell you how much I respected you as cop and a human being. How your smile and laugh would make other people in the room more at ease and most of all how you have been missed in that squad room since that night. I will tell you now my brother that you have been in my prayers for many years now and it seems that God has answered them and has taken you home, to end your suffering and now once again patrol the heavens trading the badge for wings and to become a guarding angel to us all. I will end with this, your like the brother I never had but will never forget. I will not say good bye but to say see you later in heaven
