Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Julius Jamal "Jay" Dailey

A good heart has stopped beating, but a heart that has touched so many lives can’t help but live on in those it loved.
Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us in our hearts and memories.

Deputy Dailey, for ten years, you put your life on the line unselfishly so that others may be safe. Your reward in heaven will be abundant as all good deeds do not go unnoticed by our all-loving, all-generous God. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

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 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.

Deputy Dailey, your total time in Law Enforcement was not enough to truly let you shine and yet, I have no doubts you excelled and had a magnificent future. It's tragic that that career will never be realized.

I thank you for your service and pray for those who feel the pain of your passing the most. God Bless, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.
