Reflections for Sergeant Noel Ramirez-Beltran, Jr.

I miss you brother, you were one of the best ive worked with. Smart, funny, and always willing to help everyone over yourself. You and Taylor are missed greatly. You were a mans man, and one of the best LEO I know. Gonna miss that bright smile and joking that you often had. You made rank at Levy County Sheriff's Office as a Detective early in your career, and was proud to work with you. When you moved on to the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office, again you made rank as a patrol sergeant quickly, as usual. You always strived to be the best and of course you were. You were taken abruptly and without a chance to defend yourself by a selfish coward. I know that if this happened to a cop like you and Taylor that it would have happened to anyone of us that day. Your service was beautiful, I'm sure you saw it from above. We miss you Bro.. Hold it down up there until our time has come.

"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."

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
