I am always sadden when I hear of a Police Officer's death. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. My condolences to the family.

Back in the days, when cities first formed police departments, the poet Walt Whitman wrote, “I dreamed in a dream, I saw a city, invincible, to the attacks, of the whole of the rest of the earth”. As officers work the streets every day, in cities large and small, we know, better than most, that the dream has not yet been realized. But we, as officers pasted and present endeavor to make the dream reality.
Why them and not me. As a cop, I’ve asked myself that question many times. But, I’ve come to realize that any cop, on any given day can ask themselves that same question. And some questions have no answers.
Men and women who become officers make a choice, a choice to live a life of service. We choose to put ourselves in harms way. To be a guardian, to the people of this great nation. We will never be able to thank the officers who have gone before us. They made the supreme sacrifice. But this we CAN and WILL do. We will REMEMBER THEM always. We will remember that as in life, and in death, they embody all, that we as citizens can hope to be. May God bless our fallen brother Officer Ellis and welcome him home. May God bless his family and coworkers through this time of sorrow and remember how he LIVED ... It's an HONOR to call you my brother!

Officer Ellis, you are gone, but you will never be forgotten. Not by the city you served, or by the university whose family you will always be apart of. Once a Colonel, always a Colonel. Rest in Peace Officer Ellis. We'll Take it From Here.
