Please accept my sincere condolences. I pray that Officer Martin's family, friends, and fellow officers can find comfort in God's promise of those who have fallen asleep in death. God's promise recorded at John 5:28, 29 states " 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."

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Richard died..

To the Martin family, fellow officers, and all who call Richard beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Martin gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 18, 2015.

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.
