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 Derek was killed.

To the Geer family, fellow deputies, and all who call Derek 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 Geer gave to his community and the citizens of Colorado, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 8, 2016.

My sincere condolences to the family and colleagues of Deputy Geer. At 1 John 5:19 the bible tells us that "the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." Many in this terrible world turn to violence towards innocent bystanders, even those that serve as LEO's.

Jehovah God has outlined a wonderful hope and future for those that have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 reads "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I pray that God's promise brings some comfort to the Deputy Geer's family and friends.

Deputy Geer - Based upon your service, not only to the residents of Mesa County, but to our Nation when you served in the Navy, I pass along this verse from the US Naval Hymn:

O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

May both your blood and blue family be comforted. and may He grant you eternal rest and have His perpetual light shine upon you.
