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.

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 Deputy Sheriff Scott Williams. Words cannot express the feelings of losing a loved one. Please try to 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 one again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. Once again, I am sorry for your lost.

Karen, Kelly, Ken. other family members, close friends. I want to express my sincere condolences for the loss of Scott. This caught me by surprise in a very busy moment. No one ever expects things to happen, they just do and each of us deal with it as we do. Though I grieve inside, my consolation would be Scott is in the hands of the Lord now. Nothing can take away the pain and suffering we all feel. Grievance is healthy and I hope in light of such tragedy we can all find peace in knowing the Lord will take care of him now. R.I.P. Scotty.
