So saddened to hear the news.

May you rest in peace after having served those around you. My thoughts are with you, your family, fellow officers and friends.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Javier Cornejo, Police Officer, Retired
City of Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee WI

A true sad and regrettable tragedy. What happened to the driver who took your life is not mentioned, but regardless, I hope that person walks away with a real lesson and enough guilt to seriously know the damage done to so many people, regardless of the justice that person faces.

Thank you for your selfless service to the people of the State of Illinois and the United States as a whole. God Bless you Brother and may your eternal rest be forever peaceful.

Those you leave behind are in all of our prayers.

Trooper Lambert, Such a tragic ending to your life and the cause of you making the Ultimate Sacrifice.

Rest in peace Trooper Lambert, my sincere condolences to your family and to your department. God speed as you now patrol the streets of gold. Your ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten.


January 15, 2019

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

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
