It will sure be a sad Mothers Day without you being there. You were on duty at the time you were taken from us and you won't be forgotten at all. Your name will be on the walls of fallen officers in both Albany and in Washington. You will be missed by all in the New York City Police Department, the City of New York and all of the State of New York.

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

A reflection is about someone we lost in a world of love and hate. One day we will look back and say, “Lord help me understand why this happened. At first, you will feel angry. Then you will get confused. Eventually, this too will pass like most things in life. But most important, never forget who we are and who we represent.”

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]
