I cannot imagine the grief your family and fellow officers are going through. I feel so so sad and heartbroken. I truly feel that your life was taken by a coward. I pray for you and your dear friend officer Smith. God bless you and your family! My daughter and her husband are deputy sheriffs in California. I pray for them and all the officers trying to protect citizens.

My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Nicholas Ryan Smarr. 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 God will soon remove everything that causes tears of sorrow. Imagine death, pain and suffering being done away. 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. Once again my condolences.

It was an honor to have worked with you. You're truly a honest, hard working, go get 'em, courageous, man of true valor. I'll always remember your smile as it preceded your own entrance into any room...whether it was for muster, booking a suspect, placing one in a holding cell, or just being around you lit up the room. For that, your absence here at the Americus Police Department is so obvious but I know you're in heaven now to shine brighter than ever. Rest easy brother. We got your watch from here.

"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."
