Heavenly Father, our hearts and prayers go out to the Illinois State Police and for the family, friends, and colleagues of Trooper Nicholas J. Hopkins, of the Illinois State Police, who was shot and killed in the Line-of-Duty on Friday, August 23, 2019. Depart, dear Brother-in-Blue, out of this world into the arms of the Father who created you, into the arms of the Son who redeemed you, and into the arms of the Spirit who made you whole. You have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, and you have kept the faith [Inspired by 2Timothy 4:7]. Now rest easy in peace. We will take it from here. Amen.
Jesus teaches us the following:

1. “Blessed are those who mourn. They will be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4];
2. “Blessed are those who make peace. They will be called God’s children.” [Matthew 5:9];
3. "The greatest love you can show is to give your life for your friends.” [John 15:13], and;
4. “I [Jesus] can guarantee this Truth: Today you will be with Me in Paradise.” [Luke 23:43].

It feels like only yesterday we were marching through the Academy halls with our classmates. We shared some good times! I will always remember your contagious smile! Brother, I am privileged to have known you. Time will pass, but I promise you will never be forgotten! Rest in peace, my brother, and thank you for your service. As you join or brothers and sisters in heaven, know that you and your family will never be forgotten. We will always have your back, and we will always remember you as we reflect on your life and selfless service. Godspeed, my brother!
