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.

My sincere condolences to Capt. Bedwell's family, collogues and friends. Capt. Bedwell heroically put himself in danger to apprehend the criminals who were putting the public at great risk. His memory will certainly be honored and his 20 years of service remembered.

May the Lord comfort all who are impacted by this tragic event especially his wife, daughter and mother.

Captain Bedwell, thank you for your dedication to serve your community that they may live in peace and security. Your reward in heaven will be abundant. My heart breaks for the sorrow that your mother is experiencing over the loss of her child. It is against the law of nature that a parent would outlive her/his child. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

"We in this world today.....shall be remembered...we few...we happy few...We Band of Brothers...for he today....who willingly sheds his blood with me...shall be... MY BROTHER...least ye say it proudly....we are but warriors for the working day." Shakespeare

It is with a heavy heart that I learn of the passing of Bro. Justin Bedwell. I meet him several years years ago when the Governors Office Highway Safety was making their annual "Hands Across The Border" awareness program, throughout the State. Our Lord and Savior has acquired another Angel to walk the streets of gold and I have no doubt we will meet again My Brother. Just rest high on that mountain for now and your fellow brothers and sisters will take the reins from here. Look after my niece(C. A. Wise) for me until I get there myself.

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the Children of God" Matt. 5:9
