On behalf of our entire family, I wish to extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Julie was killed in the line of duty. It is obvious she was well-loved by many and well-respected by her peers as reflected in the loving reflections left for her.

May her loved ones continued to be supported by their law enforcement family and other police survivors. Our family grieves with you and for you. Julie's family, you are in my heart's embrace today.

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 Julie'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.
