We all benefit from the great and selfless duty these brave soldier of freedom give. The world is a lesser place each time a officer it taken. Our prayers are with you and your family. And i pray our leaders in this country take steps to make a law for No Parole Ever for LEO murders. I can only wish that God will give you strength to go thru this time of great sorrow.

My heartfelt sorrow for your loss. May God support you and your loved ones during this time of mourning. We all support you. B.Umbenhower Missouri

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over five years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

I am sorry for your loss Ms Tartt and children also to the police and narcotics agency. Ms Tartt I know what it is like to have a husband die suddenly although mine was not from a gun my husband died very suddenly 11 years ago. Lean on God he will help you through, lean on family and friends they will help too. Time will help, you will always miss him, try to remember the good memories and the service he was to others. I used to live close to Grenada growing up, and although I don't anymore I still have kin there. You and your family are in my prayers.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

To the family of Special Agent Tart,

John Donne said "any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind"... this is especially true when a hero of family, community and country falls in the line of duty. When your hero fell, it diminished not only the State of Mississippi and the United States, it diminished all of us who serve on the Thin Blue Line, separating order and civilization from those who promote chaos and lawlessness by preying on the weak and defenseless. We all grieve with you and honor your hero's memory in our continued service on The Line. May God pour out His mercy, grace and peace on you at this time, and may you feel His loving arms wrap you up and sustain you through this storm. Special Agent Tart -- thank you for your service to your family, your community and your country. Rest in peace and know your service is valued and appreciated, and your memory will be honored.
