Brother, we hope and pray your murderer is caught and faces true justice. You died in a place that many of us dream of seeing, a place you kept safe, a place that is as dangerous as anywhere on the mainland. Tragic on so many levels, but the loss of a Brother is the second worse. What's worse is losing a husband, father, son, brother...

So long as those who know and love you best keep you in their hearts and minds, you'll never truly be gone.

Rest in Peace, Officer Kaliloa and may God Bless you and all who are most near and dear to you.

A Prayer for Police Officer Bronson K. Kaliloa:

Heavenly Father, I boldly and humbly come before Your throne in sincere faithful and fervent prayer as we remember in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Police Officer Bronson Kaliloa, of the Hawaii County, Hawaii Police Department, 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 county and state 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 lifetime, may Police Officer Bronson Kaliloa live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Amen.
