I am so sorry to learn of the grievous loss of Border Patrol Agent Officer Simpkins when he died in the line of duty from Covid. To the Simpkins family, fellow agents, and all who call Christopher beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Agent Simpkins gave to his community and the residents of our country and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 12, 2021

Simpky! You will be missed... never said a bad word, always polite and so in love with Sofia. I recall how nervous you were before your first date with her. You will always be my brother in green.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

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.

Agent Simpkins, for many years, you dedicated your life to protecting others that they may be safe. It took a small virus to take your life. Our Lord, who sees all and knows all, will reward you abundantly for your courage, dedication and selfless service. My heart breaks for the sorrow that your mother is experiencing over the loss of her son. It is against the law of nature that a parent would outlive her child. May God immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

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.

Almighty and eternal God, we ask You to be with the family of Border Patrol Agent Christopher Shane Simpkins of the United States Border Patrol. Even as Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, was moved to weep over the death of his friend Lazarus, so we know You are touched by the tears of those who mourn the loss of Border Patrol Agent Christopher Shane Simpkins. In Your divine providence, fill the aching void in their hearts with Your comforting presence and grant them peace through the assurance of Your love and care. In Christ Jesus, I pray. Amen.
