Reflections for Police Officer Christopher Allan Farrar

I loved working with Chris. His infectious smile and humor, along with his dedication to serve made him a leader among the department. His resolve to overcome some personal issues, and then help others was his greatest gift. He will always be missed, but never forgotten. RIP K528

As we drove around we saw flags at half mask. My grandson wanted to know why. When we saw the story our hearts broke for Officer Farrar, his family & all of his PD family.

May God watch over Officer Farrar’s family. You are in our prayers.

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.

I am beyond sad that you are gone my friend, my Brother.

My daughter told me this and I believe God wants me to share her response when I told her of my sadness.

"the cool thing is, in His own sacrificial love He sent Jesus to die for our sins. the only thing He asks is that we love Him and honor Him and spread His teachings to everyone else.

and while we are sad and feeling the weight of the person leaving , death (regardless of how it happens) is the most beautiful reunion we could wait for"


I will miss your witty comments.
But I WILL see you when God calls me home for that most BEAUTIFUL REUNION.

I am saddened by the tragic loss of this officer. My prayers go out to his department, family and friends. It truly angers me to know that you don’t see this on news. It should be broadcast nationwide like everything involving the BLM movement. These officers are human beings too, they love, cry, laugh, joke, we all do. But most of all we love them all. Out of all the jobs in the world we chose to be police and would have it no other way. There is no greater feeling in life than to know that you saved someone from harms way even if it means that you never get to see the ones you love again in this life.

"The Final Inspection"

The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
