Reflections for Police Officer Blake Curtis Snyder

So long as you are kept well in the hearts and minds of those who know and love you best, you will never truly be gone. Your wife and son are in our prayers. No doubt your son will grow up knowing you from many stories and anecdotes that will be passed on by family and friends but how tragic and heartbreaking that he will never have his Dad to hold, learn from and be buddies with. His Mom will carry on and God Bless her for it.

God Bless you as well, Brother and may you Rest in Peace.

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.”

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.

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.

My condolences to the family of Police Officer Blake Snyder

Losing a loved one is difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth.
