Reflections for K9 Officer Ryan Patrick Copeland

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 Ryan was killed.

To the Copeland family, fellow officers, and all who call Ryan 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 Copeland gave to his community and the citizens of Wisconsin and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on November 23, 2015.

I ran in the Police Week 5K this morning. When I got my race packet the number stated that I would run in honor of Officer Copeland. It was an honor and a privilege to run in his memory.
