Reflections for Detective Deidre Irene Mengedoht

RIP Detective Mengedoht. My sympathies are with your family, colleagues and friends.

Deidre knew where she needed to serve before she graduated the academy. I was worried for her from the start but her love for Christ and calling to serve was greater than my worry. Deidre cared deeply for those she swore to protect, and the community she felt called to serve.

She was an amazing mother, her son was her heart and her whole world. I had the privilege of watching her care for and love her son and mine. Her son is the sweetest boy I know. Our boys have known each other from a young age and I pray that they continue to be close like Deidre and I have been since our youth. I miss her more than anything I have ever lost but I know she is in the presence of our lord and savior Jesus Christ in eternal happiness. Her character is unimpeachable and she is a great, loving, christian woman that should be remembered as such.

R.I.P. SISTER Mengedoht!!!

Nebraska Police Officer

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 Deidre'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.

Detective Mengedoht, You were taken from us in a horrible way under what would normally be routine circumstances. You are gone, but it's your son and others who know and love you best that will do the suffering due to the negligence of one person.

We all mourn and we all hurt, even if we never met you.

God Bless you, Sister and may you forever Rest in Peace. So long as they keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone from those you left behind. May God bless them as well.
