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.

My condolences to the family, both civilian and police related. Laying a brother to rest is never easy. We lost 2 officers last summer within 2 months of each other and still grieve for them today. My hopes are his killer will be found and dealt with accordingly. Peace and love to all effected.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Clinton Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

A Prayer for Police Officer Gary Michael:

Lord God of Mercy, Peace, and Love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Police Officer Gary Michael, of the Clinton, Missouri Police Department, who sacrificed his life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that he stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of his spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues he loved; devoted to the community and state in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. Thus, in our life, may he live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Almighty God, we ask that you grant us a deeper appreciation of the efforts of all police officers who serve our communities and states daily. For their dedication to our security, order and peace, we give You thanks. May they be encouraged in their work which benefits us all. Help us to grow that spirit of community that will make their job both easy and fulfilling. And now may our fellowship together and Your blessing today bring a renewed sense of joy to each of us. Amen.
