"Thyfault's last act was to shout out to a tow truck driver on the scene to get out of the way, Satur said."

From a member of the thin yellow line... thank you for having our back.... you know the thin yellow line has the backs of the thin blue line... we mourn the loss of each member.. red yellow or blue our lives are on the thin white line.

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights,
bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Lord,
amid the ranks of the holy and the pure,
illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the soul of Taylor Thyfault who went to his eternal place of rest.
May You who are the source of mercy shelter him beneath Your wings eternally,
and bind his soul among the living, that he may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.

Rest in peace brother. Even though you were only a cadet when you were killed, I think I speak for all Law Enforcement when I say you were a true hero, and in our eyes a brother in arms. My prayers with your family and friends during this time.

You did good that day. From what I hear, you saved the life of the tow truck driver, who was hooking up a car from the unrelated accident you and Trooper Rushing were investigating.

Your time as a trooper was short, but your service was exemplary.

We Salute Our Fallen Brother
For I’m already being poured out like a drink offering,
And the time has come for my departure; I have fought
The good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me a crown of righteousness…2 Timothy 4:6-8.
The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will
Of God lives forever…1 John 2:17
Today we stand to salute our brothers’ departure from here
He’ll leave behind a family and those who hold him dear
In a career he served where all give some, yet he gave his all
He leaves this earth behind as he received his final call
The risks he faced on this final tour was one of a unique kind
His bravery surpassed his courage at last he leaves a world behind
Everyday he’ll be remembered for all the special things he did
He patrolled the streets as Gods chosen servant to him goodbye we bid
Don’t worry our brother in blue you’ll always be a part of our mind
We’ll always recall the bright face you bore one that’s so very kind
The hours you spent making a difference protecting all mankind
You stood your watch and kept the faith of one so hard to find
We Salute Our Fallen Brother for the impeccable job he done
You walked tall on duty with integrity second to no one
The beat you worked was like a battlefield in a society filled with change
Yet you never wavered in your commitment to a job that somehow was strange
The flag of our nation will not fly at half mast across the entire USA
But trust us dear brother with taped badges we honor you this way
A symbol of a fallen brother that graced our presence everyday
We’ll always salute the job you performed before you went away!
