A tragic loss for Tazewell County and the nation as a whole.

We must all remember that, no matter what the call, it's better to get there in one piece that not get there at all.

Deputy Whisenand, you tried to help, you gave your all. You are truly a hero.

God Bless and may those who love you most and hold your most dear, forever keep you alive in their hearts and minds as you eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.
