Unless I'm mistaken, you lived just a bit longer than the animal who murdered you, served in jail, though God knows, I hope he is still in, or never made if out of prison. You, Brother, are a hero, not only for the efforts you made in your sadly short time on the job, but in your fight to survive for so long. I admire and respect you enormously.

Deputy Burdic, you suffered beyond words, but didn't give up and thank God you had the time with your family before passing,

May you forever to continue to Rest in Peace, and may God Bless you.

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
one’s character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Lord Jesus Christ, You came to earth to show us what true love looks like. You taught us that love was about sacrifice, virtue, and service. You taught us that love means to lay down your life for one another. For fallen law enforcement officers everywhere, we thank You, O Lord, for their selfless example of courage and valor. We ask that You would bless and keep the families, friends, and colleagues of these fallen law enforcement officers. Wipe every tear from their eyes, O Lord. Help them to heal and to move forward in a way that honors the memories of their loved ones in Blue. In Christ Jesus, I pray for all those law enforcement officers who have fallen in the Line-of-Duty. Amen.

During His 3-Year Ministry, Jesus proclaimed, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 ESV]

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.

By Jon F. Hooper

Deputy Berdic your service, heroism and sacrifice for the citizens of Oregon and of the United States is sincerely appreciated ...as is the huge sacrifice made by your family.

All too often, those in the law enforcement and military professions lose their lives so others can enjoy the safety, security and freedoms of this nation; their battlefields are just different.

You may now rest in eternal peace brother...you certainly earned it.
