Please accept our deepest condolences for Police Officer Katherine Mary Thyne, family, friends, colleagues and our sister in arms.

Our Hero Police Officer Katherine Mary Thyne, like other heroes believe in a justice system and that all people dont dont abide by the law should be corrected. Some of us gave it our all like our hero Katherine Thyne. But rest assure many of us also recite the Lords Prayer in part we ask as cited in Matthew 6:10 "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." That Kingdom with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will finally bring a true justice system. And as it written "thy will be done on earth..." it will be a justice for us all. But as for our lost one, what will this new Kingdom/ Government bring for us. Each government has promises and benefits for its people The word of God has the answer.
*Psalms 37:11" But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the ABUNDANCE of peace". (No more evil people)

* Romans 16:20 "And the God of peace shall BRUISE SATAN under your feet SHORTLY. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." (Satan the Devil and his demons won't have any influences over us).

* Isaias 25:8 " He will SWALLOW UP DEATH IN VICTORY; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it." (no more death).

* Isaiah 65:21,22 " And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands."(enjoy the fruits of our work here on earth part of our Lords Prayer).

* John 11: 43,44. 43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, LAZARUS COME FORTH. 44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go." (How easy Jesus brought back to life those loved ones, just as he created all universe and first couple no problem).

* John 5:28, 29 "28. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE, 29. AND SHALL COME FORTH; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation." (hope for our lost one in death through the miracle of the resurrection).

* Apocalypse\ Revelation 21:3,4 3." And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away". (Blessings here on earth since there are no one sick or dying in the heavens).

* Acts 24:15 "And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust." (Apostles believed in the resurrection and was part of their teaching they learned from the Christ).

Katie, I didn't personally know you, but I heard from so many people that you were a sweetheart, a pleasure to be around and just full of positive energy. I will never forget your memorial service, it was truly one of the most emotional moments I've ever experienced. You will never be forgotten, and you'll always be in our hearts and minds. Fly high sister, we have the watch from here.

I remember the thursday that she was killed, I was working in the jail and when I went on break I had an alert in my phone of a Newport News Police Officer the line of duty. Our agency immediately authorized the shrouding of our badges. Over the weekend I began to read and learn more about who she was as a person and I found it very ironic that she started with NNPD exact 1 month to the day after I started with Norfolk Sheriffs Office (her start date 13Nov2018, mine 13Oct2018). Then crazier still she graduated her academy 1 month to the day before I graduated mine (her academy graduation date 28June2019, mine 28July2019). I didnt know her but I live on the same side of the water that she worked (Hampton/Newport News). I went to her memorial service and took my son with me who loves all things police, which strangely was at the church I attend. May God have mercy on her soul and may he comfort her family. We will continue to hold the line, we got it from here sister.
