Reflections for Police Officer David Charles Sherrard

Rest in peace brother. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.................

To all family and friends of Officer Sherrard. It saddens me to hear of another Officer losing his life while simply doing what he was called to do, to protect and serve. May you find comfort in the memories you share. Praying for Peace and strength from God.

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.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

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 David'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.

Dave you goofy f'er! We served together on SWAT. I always knew you had my back. When you started I thought you were young, goofy and a little immature. I watched you grow into a dedicated SWAT officer, Instructor, cop and my friend. I will surely miss you. I love you buddy.

As we all come to reckon with the aftermath of losing a brother in Officer Sherrard, we reflect on who he was to the people most important to him. A wreath of flowers adorned the stage at his memorial service which read "My Sweet Beast". It's obvious to anyone who saw and worked beside Officer Sherrard, he was an imposing figure. One can imagine that he carried his presence proudly and professionally and it served him equally well. In that wreath, we caught a glimpse of who Officer Sherrard was as a man, a husband, and a father. None of us can imagine what it's like for this family to lose someone so committed to both sides of life: Family and Career. All we can do is honor this brave man and carry on our mission both in his name and for all of those who have made this sacrifice before us. We will continue to pray for the fine men and women of Richardson PD, as well as Officer Sherrard's wife Nicole and their kids.

David, thank you sincerely for your service. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

I was honored to attend the beautiful service for Officer David Sherrard this afternoon. I was moved by th courage Officers Sherrards wife displayed during her remembrance speech. I did not know Officer Sherrard, but after attending his service I have a true understanding of what a wonderful man he was.

Rest In Peace “David”

I know you will be missed by many.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
