Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Zackari Spurlock Parrish, III

You lived your calling everyday you put your uniform on. You died protecting and honoring everything you believed in.
You will be missed by many, you will never be forgotten, and your legacy will continue.
We mourn you, we honor you, and we will continue to serve for you
May you rest in peace. My brother

Rest in Peace Parrish.
Lo there do I see my father
Lo there do I see my mother, my sisters, and my brothers.
Lo there do I see my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call me. They bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla.
Where the brave may live forever.

You left a good impression on your agencies in your short career. May all be inspired by that. Our thoughts and prayers are with you , your family and the others that are affected by this tragedy. Rest in peace.

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 Zackari'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.

Zach, I didn't know you. But I know your brother Jeff. I'm grateful for your warrior spirit, the willingness to stand between evil and good, and to take a biblical stance to give yourself for those who cannot fight for themselves. The earthly wounds will never completely heal, but we know you're in the arms of our Lord and together you will watch over the rest of us and your family. Rest well, my friend. You've earned it. We've got it from here.

My sincere condolences in the loss of your loved one.
My son Matthew Gerald
Was killed in the ambush in July 2016, so I feel a bond with you all.
Let God be your strength always, especially when you think your heart will break and that you can’t continue without him!He too had been on the streets only 4 short months. He also left behind 2 young children, one still in the womb.
