Reflections for Sergeant John Edward Lawrence

I went to Quartz Hill High School in California with John. He was always smiling and just a great guy. I was sad to see this post on ODMP.

Hardest call I dispatched in my life. Your career, friendship, and leadership encouraged me to continue after my dream to become an officer. In your honor, I'll take it from here Sarge.

I remember when Les Stiles told us that you had been hired with Brian & Devin at BPD. I later moved away but heard about you from friends, saw your procession on TV. You were a good man though I only briefly spoke with you.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

My deepest condolences go out to the Lawrence family, his friends, and the Bend police department.
Officer Lawrence, as told by so many in the Bend community, admire and remember that he was a man who walked the blue line proudly.
