May 11, 2019, I ran the National Police Week 5k in honor of you.

My agency Baltimore County Police Department, MD lost Police Officer I Amy Sorrells Caprio
EOW: Monday, May 21, 2018, the same year as Patrolman II LeAnn Simpson. BCoPD is a larger agency, very close to Washington D. C., and we had several members running in Amy's honor. I did not know if anyone from the Philadelphia Police Department, Mississippi would be able to attend the National Police Week to represent you.

As a fellow Army Veteran and Law Enforcement, it was my honor to run for you and your agency.

Rest easy sister.

Officer Simpson,

Where do I begin? Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. As your supervisor, I still catch myself looking for you to come into work. I adjust my radio volume wondering why you haven't called me on the radio while I'm on shift. You were a hard-charger. You are greatly missed and there is a void on our shift. It hurts down to the core. If tears could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

"Bye LeAnn, love you!"

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over seven years. I pray that Leann's life and death will bring glory to God.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.
