God bless and keep you, Deputy Parrish, for your untiring and faithful service. Yesterday you paid the ultimate price, standing between great evil and the innocent residents at Copper Canyon, including my daughter. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13). May the Good Lord watch over Gracie, your daughters and the members of your law enforcement family, and give them the strength they need in the face of such a tragic loss. Zack, you will be remembered.

Deputy Parrish -

I know people who know you. My ex-wife hired you on to DCSO. They are in shock at your loss. You were so young and cut down so tragically. You stood tall in the face of danger, showing courage I wish I could only have a 10th of.

My prayers for your family, your wounded co-workers, and the members of DCSO as they try to carry on in the aftermath of this tragedy. We will not forget you or your family.

Truly a sad way to end 2017 with a brave deputy being shot and killed in the line of duty while on the scene of a domestic dispute. I would like to give my condolences to the family and to the Douglas County Sheriff's Department on the death of Deputy Parrish. He was a great deputy and he was a dedicated one.

It is with great sadness to hear of another Soldier gone to rest. I have read this poem numerous times and I will share with you, Deputy Parrish.

In God’s Arms
So many names Upon the wall,
And God’s arms Hold them all.
Fathers and sons, Sisters too,
Died for the badge, Died for the blue.
Hopes and dreams Died also that day,
With their last breath Such a sad price to pay
Though others will follow In their shoes,
There’s room for them In God’s arms too.
In God’s loving arms These men shall ever rest,
Their badges shining proudly Upon their blue chests.

Deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Deputy Parrish and to the officers, family & friends of the officers injured in this incident. When I joined the police in the UK many years ago I was told by senior constables that I worked with that police work was 99% routine and 1% sheer terror. They weren't wrong in that assessment. Keep safe guys and girls.
