End of Watch: July 14, 2017

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

My heart and prayer's go out to the family Michael. Having lost a son at the age of 23 this will be something that will live with you forever. Prayer's will help and crying also. It will let up somewhat but it will never leave you my son passed in 1986, Last night my wife and I wen thru all the card's and letter's we got but was so upset forgot them and who send them.
There will be many that remember this but will sometimes be afraid to say anything to you.
God want him for some reason and it must have been a good one and we will never know.
God Bless you and your family'

Trooper Michael, God has taken you back to Himself at the peak of your youth. It is not for us to comprehend His reason, but it is undoubtedly a good reason. May you rest in His loving arms and may He immerse you in His Divine Mercy.
