I can't believe this, we were just with Collin and his new fiancé at a fundraiser for NLEM, and then in Washington DC in May. This excited, compassionate young officer has his whole life ahead of him. Rest In Peace Collin, we will take it from here.

My condolences to the family of Police Officer Collin Rose. Losing someone so close to us is very difficult. May all who are touched from this loss read Revelation 21:3-4. It is comforting to know that God will soon remove everything that causes tears of sorrow. Imagine death, pain and suffering being done away with. Only tears of joy when we welcome our loved ones back to a paradise earth. What a joy it will be to experience this promise very soon.

"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."
