It's been 18 months & 15 days you were taken from us. Not a day goes by you're not on our minds or in our hearts. Taylor is your little clone. He's growing so fast & has your personality, spirit & every ounce of your greatness. Saying I miss you just doesn't describe the emptiness I feel in my heart & soul each & every day. Keep watch over us son. I love you with everything in me.

It has been 18 months since you were needlessly taken from your precious wife and child. I drove out and sat on your memorial bench next to your grave and thought of you and your fellow officer, Officer Tuder, and paid my respects to you. I know I will carry your memory with me until we all meet again in heaven. We miss you.

I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 where it says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Until we see him again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Justin was killed in the line of duty.

To the Billa family, fellow officers , and all who call Justin beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Justin gave to his community and the citizens of Alabama and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 20th, 2018.

It has taken a while for me to decide how I want to reflect on this young officer's tragic death. I was born and raised in Mobile and I am currently the chief of the Opp, Alabama Police Department. In reality, their is not much that I can say about Officer Billa's tragic death at the hands of a murderous criminal. As other chiefs of police, I go to bed each night hoping and praying that none of my officers are hurt or killed. I hope and pray that none of my officers have to hurt anyone. It does not always work out that way and as a leader, we lead through the tragic events that we are confronted with. May God bless Officer Billa's family and co workers in the days yet to come. Rest easy officer, we will finish your watch.

Deepest condolences to Family, Department and Friends. Visit the web site for a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting. All law enforcement men and women indeed qualify as "Foxhole Christians" with their duty dangers. As Ray Comfort at says "Passing is the doormat they wipe their feet on before entering Heaven.” It is our belief they will hear from the Lord Himself. “Do not fear. for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:12).

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 Justin'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.
