In 1988 I attended the police academy with Tony and have spent the last 30 years working side-by-side with him. Not only was he a great officer he was an even better man, husband and father. You will be greatly missed.

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 Anthony'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.

Poem: Comfort me, oh friend. God laid my dad to rest today, Lord may his presence linger,and in my heart remain the joy this precious soul did mingle. To each of us he was and gave a harvest to treasure daily. A love so deep and real, that kept us true and steady.God laid my dad to rest this day, his life a lasting sway of love,truth and faithfulness in God,s eternal days. In our fathers guidance we,ve known the worth of life when from a faithful heart is shown. God laid my dad to rest today , a gallant man from yesterdays, through him much rejoycing and good remains. From God the joy and peace sustained. When darkness shadows me in fear, I,LL open memories window and gather all the laughter time on us bestowed. You are a strength I,ve leaned on you shared hopes light with all. Blest I,ve been, your life in mine,a peaceful ,sweet, sweet stain. Asleep in Christ to rise again we will hold hands and then, my heart again will sing.... Signed a sincere friend. ......
