2 Timothy 4:7-8 King James Version (KJV)
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

You were one of the best sailors I’ve met and I’m sure you were just as good of a police officer. I’ll always miss talking to you about how we’d both rather be at work catching bad guys instead of being at drill. Fair winds and following seas brother. We have the watch.

My daughters were shocked at how many Officer die each year. We were at a stop light and there was a police car beside us. my daughter driving said look he’s searching the web. My other daughter said yes they scan for license numbers when there stopped. I asked is there two officers? They both said no. They both said they should, especially at night. C/O M Nelson

My "A GUNNER" on the watch. I respected your humblness, admired your professionalism and inspired by your goals. We have gone back an forth on trading your glock for my 1911 for over a year. I can't express the pain I feel or got to tell you the love I feel for you and our watch. We just had lunch at Forsyth Ga during training. I'm hurting and regret never getting to have that poker game. This year's fantasy football will never be the same. I am gonna miss you my brother, til we meet again! From Marine to Sailor SEMPER FIDELIS!

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Thank you your service. There are not words that can adequately describe the loss of your life as you were protecting your community. The sacrifices that Police Officers make everyday for their community are completely amazing! Rest in peace Officer Christie! And may the Lord watch over your family!
