I am sorry for your loss. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the News has reached here and I have shared it with others. Your Husband and the Father of your children was a GREAT MAN because God Blessed him with a gift to serve. I am truly grateful for the job your husband did. I'm proud of him.

As the Associate Editor of the local newspaper, I quickly became friends with Ladson when he won the election for Sheriff. Now, two-and-a-half years later, I can truthfully say that not only did I find a man who was beyond reproach in his job, but a friend as well. He never avoided talking to the press and was always open. I will miss calling his cell and hearing his cheerful voice answer, "Hey Miss Kathy! How are you?" He will be missed. He served well.

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 Ladson O'Conner 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.

My condolences and prayers go out to The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department and most of all to the family and friends of Sheriff O’Connor, As Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have. I commend you Sir, for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty. Upholding the oath you swore to do. Serving your community making it a better and safer place for us all. Thank you,
Sheriff O’Connor, may you Rest in Peace Sir.
