John 5:28, 29 - "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 that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Please accept my condolences. Acts 24:15 reads "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." I pray that GOD's wonderful promise he has outlined for our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death bring comfort to Correctional Officer Mitchell's family, friends, and colleagues.

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

To the Mitchell family, fellow officers, and all who call Gregory 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 Officer Gregory Mitchell gave to his community and the citizens of Georgia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 7, 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."

Correctional Officer Gregory Dale Mitchell:

Thank you for your dedicated and selfless service to the Georgia Department of Corrections and to the citizens of the State of Georgia. "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God." Matthew 5:9. Let us reflect on your life and not dwell on the circumstances surrounding your tragic and unfortunate death. "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13. Now, you are with Him! "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23:43. However, your work is not yet completed; it is just beginning! "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." Ephesians 6:11. You are now an Angel of God! May He bless you and keep you always! "Well done, good and faithful servant!" Matthew 25:11.
