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

To the Durr family, fellow deputies, and all who call William 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 Deputy Durr gave to his community and the citizens of Mississippi and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 27, 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.

Even though William is greatly missed, his death has impacted so many lives. We should be more like William so when we get to Heaven, God will tell us the same as I know he told William. “Well done...” His legacy lives on through so many but especially in the life of his son, Nash. Nash is truly his mini-me. He looks, acts and loves just like William did. Until we all get to Heaven...

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 Willam'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.

My deepest sympathy goes out for this Great loss. I wish that I could have met Deputy William Durr. I would love to meet his family someday. My Great-grandfather was William Rufus Durr and came from the Mississippi/Alabama area. Again my deepest sympathy to the family. Back the Blue and go in peace my Brother.

Remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am with God, I need you to know.
He called my name, and I went to see
If the voice I heard was speaking to me.
He took my hand, we walked along
The road to heaven, where I belong.
The angles sang so sweet and clear.
They sang of love and that Jesus is near.
I felt his touch, I saw his face,
I knew in an instant I was in his grace.
He spoke to me, I heard him say,
You are home now child, you have found your way.
So remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am home now with God, I need you to know.

Thank you Deputy Sheriff Durr. God Bless you and your family.
