Hurts more than anything, rest easy my bother in blue.

Yesterday marked one month.
I still cant understand this...

You are my husband..
My Rock
My Protector
My Best Friend
My ANGEL from above
You being an ANGEL has been confirmed for sure...

The losing of a love one hurts regardless if they are sworn or civilian.

Praying for peace and understanding comes when there is the losing of a Love One trying to protect others and trying to better the community and they get hurt..
...fatally hurt..

That can ROCK anyone spiritually and raise questions UNTIL you reflect on the actions and meaning of GOD's work and walk in life. GOD wanted to help, serve, and protect. So did Jermaine. So many testimonials confirmed that....and it's truly appreciated.

Sometimes it's discouraging when the community continues to condemn all LEO for the actions of a few bad seeds.....Just like we cant profile the bad seeds don't profile officers. Most LEO's are here to truly do the right thing. The honest-GODLY thing. My husband was one. He even stood up for other LEO's.

Yes the LEO profession is faced with life events ..but .we stand together during times of crisis like this.
That's the definition of the LEO FAMILY!

This is coming from an honest place:
Please support all LEO support groups like ODMP, POAT, LEO Unions, Civilian Organizations, Dignitaries, etc. They truly helped us tremendously during our time of bereavement.

As you return to your normal, please keep Jermaine's legacy:
- except GOD
- keep GOD first
- keep GOD's WORD first
- love and show love to your spouse
- love and mentor your kids
- be a good listener and commuincator
- help your neighbors if needed
- value true friendship
- dont forget why you applied
- do your job and don't get caught up
- use discretion whenever builds trust
- enjoy life and your hobbies
- do good deeds and be humble about it
- protect and serve
- pray for all

Jermaine, you are an ANGEL and you are truly missed.

Your loving wife

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

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
