My heart is ripped out. I am sorry you made this ultimate sacrifice. I've been around LEOs since birth and have been to many LEO funerals, all murdered but two. For me to say "Thank you for your service and sacrifice" is not enough. If I could trade my life for yours, I would. I will not allow you to be forgotten, my hero. "Until Valhalla." God has a special place for His heroes.

A little boy wakes up and asks, “Mommy, where is daddy? When is he coming home?” A widow has to fight back the tears and sobs to explain that God needed more police officers in Heaven to help Him, so He had Daddy go there to help. Now the little boy sleeps with his daddy’s pillow at night because it still has the smell of his dad’s cologne.
His widow looks at the photographs that not so long ago, are of a young family enjoying a life together, and sharing in the American dream. A home, raising a child and going through life as friends and lovers, trying to make this world a better place for their son. A widow who now must face the world alone, without her lifelong mate, and try to come to understand why her husband had to die so that others can live in peace.
A law enforcement agency has to come to grips with losing an officer to a senseless act of cowardice and violence, and yet main its professionalism and it’s charged responsibility of protecting and serving. An agency that has to endure not only the loss of a fine police officer, but be concerned about its surviving officer’s wellbeing. An agency that can be proud of the fact that one of their own gave up his life so that the citizens they are sworn to safeguard, can be free from fear and harm, and enjoy the American way of life.
Rest in peace. I am certain that when you walked through the Gates of Heaven, Almighty God said, “Welcome Home”.

I work hand in hand with this department day in and day out, although I did not know Blake personally I saw him in passing and on calls, the smile you see in his picture is the only way I ever saw Blake, extremely happy and friendly. My heart is truly broken; today I lost a brother. One day your son will realize that superheroes don't fly around wearing capes, they wear badges and selflessly serve others as you did. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. My heart goes out to the family and friends. You will not be forgotten
