Reflections for Police Officer Houston James Largo

I just saw a middle school picture of you, brother! Blue through and through, miss you, your smile, and helpful demeanor. Even when you were NPD you still took time to back me up, but that was you, always ready to help. Your family continues to be in our prayers, we are doing our best out here holding the line, keep watching over us all. Much love sent.

And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singin'
Then I headed down the street
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearin' dreams of yesterday. The Lord replied, “The years when you have see only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.” Mary Stevenson 1936 Garryle, Nocona, me, Jarred, and your family and loved ones are the only ones that know the truth and have earned the right to honor you here. Those handcuffs by your side are your symbol of victory having apprehended your killer.

RIP, Officer Houston James Largo will never ever be forgotten. We thank him for his devotion to serve the public in general, and two different law enforcement agencies specifically. Officer Largo did an outstanding job without exception.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Houston was killed.

To the Largo family, fellow officers, and all who call Houston beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Largo gave to his community and the citizens of New Mexico and the Navajo Nation , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 12, 2017.

I hope everyone will find comfort in Acts 24:15 - "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Until we see our loved ones again on an earthly Paradise, please accept my condolences.

Officer Largo over the past 3 days as part of the Police Unity Tour I have ridden my bike from NJ to Washington DC in your honor my fallen brother. Today I will ride through the Police Memorial to honor your sacrifice.
I will send the bracelet I’ve worn, a rubbing of your name on the wall to your command.
Thanks for your sacrifice my brother.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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 your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Houston's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Police Officer Houston James Largo, and the extended law enforcement family Navajo Division of Public Safety, Tribal Police. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

A portion of a letter written by President Abraham Lincoln, printed in the Boston Evening Transcript on November 25, 1864.

“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”

There is no greater honorable act than when a person sacrifices their own safety to ensure the safety of another. I know this was not the first time officer Largo had engaged in this type of selfless act. He is a true American hero, and beyond recognition, his courage and inspiration will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
