May God watch over the family and fellow officers these heroes worked with. We can only imagine their pain. But we can sympathize with them and we must support them. This is what the Patriots and Heroes looks like folks. Running to the danger when all others run away from it. Selfless and fearless to the end. They now work heavens Beat. And are in God's hands forever. Ever watching down on us all.

A Prayer for Correctional Officer Tawanna Marin:

Heavenly Father, I boldly and humbly come before Your throne in sincere faithful and fervent prayer as we remember in this moment our Sister-in-Blue, Correctional Officer Tawanna Marin, of the Florida Department of Corrections, who sacrificed her life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that she stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of her spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues she loved; devoted to the state and country in which she served; and loyal to the causes which she 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 lifetime, may Correctional Officer Tawanna Marin live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Amen.

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…
