A Prayer for Senior Special Agent Paul S. Ragsdale:

Lord God, I boldly and humbly come before Your throne in sincere faithful and fervent prayer as we remember in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Senior Special Agent Paul S. Ragsdale, of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, who sacrificed his life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that he stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of his spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues he loved; devoted to the country in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. For the Scripture says: God blesses those who work for peace for they will be called the children of God ; there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends; I [Jesus] assure you, today you will be with me in Paradise, and; God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Thus, in our life, may Senior Special Agent Paul S. Ragsdale live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Amen

Senior Special Agent Paul S. Ragsdale, rest easy. We will take it from here our Brother-in-Blue. You are now in the hands of the Lord God.

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms,
badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement.
All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home…

This inspiring Poem is by Jim Weaver, retired LAPD Officer and former Idaho Sheriff. It is submitted with his approval, and we firmly feel such ceremonies actually occur in the Heavenly Realm. Visit……and may we all gain comfort accordingly as Magnificent Reunions await…
