Reflections for Police Officer Emmett Paul Morris

It's been 3 years now since you been gone. Not a day goes by that I and the rest of the family don't talk about you. We have a new member now my little boy, and he loves music just you. Me and daddy say wouldn't Paul have loved him. I don't play the guitar much now, it's no fun with you. I fish with one of you old reel's and talk to you like your in the boat. I miss you. It's hard to believe still that your gone.

You were the best grandad in the world and I would never imagine this to happen the way it did and I want you to know I love you and I miss you so much you don’t even know❤️

It’s really nice to see this in honor of my daddy. Words can’t describe how much I miss him and the days to come are harder and harder. I appreciate everyone’s efforts and the opportunities I’ve been giving to honor him. I wasn’t able to make it to the memorial this year but I will be there to see it in time. Thanks for all the prayers and kind words.

Dear Morris Family, this week I rode in the Police Unity Tour in honor of Officer Morris. We rode from NJ to Washington DC and arrived today. I’m not sure if you’re in Washington for police week or not but you can email me at [email protected] I have something I would like to mail or give you if you are here.

I hope 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 Paul was killed in the line of duty.

To the Morris family, fellow officers , and all who call Paul 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 Paul gave to his community and the citizens of Mississippi and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 17th, 2018.

"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."

My deepest condolences to the entire family of Police Officer E. Paul Morris. May his soul rest in heaven, and may GOD BLESS HIS FAMILY.

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.
