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.

You will forever remain in OUR hearts! I heard the gunshots ring out. I still hear them when I think of that terrible night! How could anyone be so sick as to think this would somehow be helpful? My heart bleeds as I think of what GREAT people you both were! Thank YOU for your service. You will NEVER be forgotten!

I remember those gun shots ringing out in the early morning. Even now, I hear the echo of those shots screaming loudly that one of our best has just been shot. I pray that the individual who did this to you is locked away forever with the key lost never to be found. You were so young and so full of life. You heard Heaven's call. You had to go....May peace be with your loved ones. I'm just one American but I can tell you, your family is loved more than words can EVER SAY in this Urbandale town just like you were. NEVER will we forget! 50 years and safety was assured or so we thought.....This sleepy little town woke up to this tragedy.

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.

I know it is God that drives us to face danger when others flee. We are not heroes but protectors that believe and know we make a difference every day. No words now can take away the pain. But your remembered today, tonight as I pin on the badge. I won't forget.

Too the first thought that comes to mind. A young man who willingly took on the challenge of solving societies problems . Taken way too soon. As I continue to learn about this profession, I have to remind myself to take all the training serious and make sure I do the best I can to make it home as well as making sure my partners do the same. It is difficult because something are so far away from your control. To this young man, I say thank you, may your Rest In Peace. You will be missed.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln
