Officer Meacham, rest in peace. Impersonators have no conscience and lack at least two things: honesty and heroism! You had dignity, integrity and honor sewed to your uniform.

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 Phillip was killed in the line of duty.

To the Meacham family, fellow officers, and all who call Phillip 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. In reading the many reflections left for you, I can see what an impact you made on so many people.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Meacham gave to his community and the citizens of Kentucky and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 29th, 2018.

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 Phillip'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.

Thank you for your service. May you rest in peace, my brother.

Your sacrifice was so unnecessary. I pray for your family and friends and respectfully submit this question? Why don't police officers WEAR SEAT BELTS. I know they're a real pain and may not go over all the equipment and body armor you have to wear but so many of you lose your lives responding to incidents and high speed chases. May some engineer come up with a useable restraint system for the front seats of all first responder vehicles.

Officer Meacham, you went above and beyond to help a fellow Officer and for that you should be admired and respected. I believe you are and that is shown here.

Our hearts and prayers go out to those you leave behind, though, if they keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone from them.

You are on the fast track to Heaven; you murderer is not.

God Bless you, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.
