Reflections for Police Officer Craig E. Lehner

God Bless the Lehner Family. What a terrible loss. I did not have the privilege of knowing Officer Lehner or the Lehner family. However, as a mom and and American I am heart broken over this loss of life. I am grateful for his service, and the service of all Peace Officers. His human partner was correct. He is now a soldier in God's Angel Army. I, for one, look forward to meeting him one day. My prayers to all that will miss him, including Shields. God Rest Your Soul.

I have been so heartbroken with you. For our Family, it has been nearly 25 years since our End of Watch was called for our Beloved Officer. I want to bring Craig back for you. I would if I could, but I want you to know we care and pray for you everyday.

I hope, as with us, you won't get lost in the "what if games", but rather, remember Your Beloved Officer Craig Lehner for choosing to do good and devoting his life to help make this World a better place. Officer Lehner did just that. No doubt Jesus met him personally and God told him "Well Done Craig..Well Done.

On The National Officer Down Memorial Monument in Washington, DC it reads "It is not how these Officer's died that made them Heroes...it is how they Lived". I hear Shield carries much of Craig with him...to Continue on in his Paw Prints.

Craig Lived Life and Left Joyful Footprints and Stories for us. Though, I did not believe it 25 years ago, the passing of time with shared Stories of our Officer between us kept Our Officer Alive and In the Laughter slowly began to replace the burden of the sorrow. Craig was a hero and we are grateful for his Light.

The Weatherman says that during Your Beloved's Service it likely will rain. I want you to know we call those Raindrops Holes In The Floor Of Heaven letting us know we are being missed too.

I hope You will find Solace in these small and sometimes overlooked Heart Kisses from Craig, God, Fellow Survivor's and Everyone who cares about and loves you.

With Unending Love...We got your 6.
