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.

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

To the Vela family, fellow officers, and all who call Rosemary 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 Deputy Vela gave to her community and the citizens of Tennessee and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on September 28, 2015.

My sincere condolences to Deputy Vela's family, friends, and colleagues of the Madison County Sheriff's Office. I especially pray for Deputy Vela's 5 yr old son. 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 hope God's promise concerning our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death bring comfort to all who knew Deputy Vela.
