Reflections for Sergeant Korby Lee Kennedy

RIP Officer Kennedy
Thanks for your work and service as a Tom Green County Jailer and then as a SAPD Officer. I too did similar work in security field and security direct care work in that field. Your work promoted safety and security in Tom Green County, and San Angelo, for our citizens in our region. My condolences to the Kennedy family for your loss.

Please accept my condolences. GOD has outlined a wonderful prospect for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. John 5:28,29 reads " 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 these words bring comfort to Sgt. Korby family, friends, and colleagues.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Korby was killed.

To the Kennedy family, fellow officers, and all who call Korby 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.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Sgt. Kennedy gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on June 25, 2015

"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.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Sergeant Korby Kennedy and the extended law enforcement family of the San Angelo, Texas Police Department. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

"The Thin Blue Line"

There is a line
the color of the sky
on a clear afternoon

There is a line
the hue of the ocean
on a bright sunny day

There is a line
the purest shade of a newborn's eyes
awakening for the first time

There is a line
that protects us from harm
in all we do
whether day or night

There is a line
no one can penetrate
no one can alleviate

There is a line
made of those who choose
to follow a calling many do not hear
and still more do not comprehend

They choose to walk
the path of fear, hate, and mistrust
taken by so few
but marked by so many

And when one leaves this line
they leave a legacy
but the line does not break
for the remaining must still protect

There may be emptiness
a loss, or sadness
but never a hole
not in this line

This line that holds
the ghosts of the souls who have gone
and the souls of the ghosts who will be
The Thin Blue Line

Korby, May you rest in peace in the arms of our heavenly father. Thank you for your service to our community, state, and country. To your family and girls may they remember that during the darker hours of our life and when we feel all alone, God is walking right beside us. Thanks for your friendship, guidance with traffic control during all those special events at the airport. We will miss you very much, and even though I'm retired I will stand by our brothers and sisters of the San Angelo Police Dept. God bless you all.
We are standing in the gap for you. You will never be forgotten. God bless you and your family.
