Reflections for Trooper Christopher James Lambert

May God watch over the family and fellow officers who serve and protect us. We can only imagine their pain. But we can sympathize with them and we must support them. 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. Thanks for your service.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Illinois State Police. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

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 was written by Jim Weaver, a retired LAPD Officer and former Idaho Sheriff. It is submitted with his full support and approval. We feel ceremonies such as this actually occur in the Heavenly Realm. We can all gain a glimpse at… …with the faith building book by Pastor John Burke, and his NDE interviews with credible individuals granted such Near Death Experiences. Both my Pastor and Family Doctors feel many such instances are fully valid. Indeed, “Do nor fear…for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:32). May the Family, Friends and Department be comforted as Magnificent Reunions truly await all Christians!

A very sad and tragic day for the Illinois State Police as they mourn the loss of a fellow trooper who was killed in the line of duty. Trooper Christopher Lambert was killed by a vehicle while on patrol on Interstate 294. He stopped to help out at an accident where he lost his life. He leaves his wife and a 1 year old daughter who will not know who her father is because he was killed in the line of duty.
