Reflections for Correctional Officer Robert John Vidimos, II

My husband, R.J., was such a loving, caring and giving person. He loved his job as a correctional officer and made such a difference in so many of their lives in the short time he was there. He knew no stranger and loved to help people. His faith in God, his love and country and family were very important to him.
His belly laugh and smile were the best, they would make your day!
He leaves behind his wife, Lois (married 34 years); son, Rob (33 years old); daughter, Lauren (31 years) and grandson, Atlas (his pride and joy - almost 3 years old).
He is missed every single moment and we are all blessed to have able to call his husband, father, grandpa, son, brother, uncle, and friend.

Most merciful God, You hold each of us dear to Your heart. Hold all those law enforcement officers and their families, who are afflicted or affected by the COVID-19 Virus, in Your loving arms and tenderly draw them into Your life, together with all others who are living with the COVID-19 Virus. Assure them that they are not alone, and give them courage and faith for all that is to come. Strengthen those who care for them and treat them, and guide those who do research. Forgive those who have judged harshly, and enlighten those who live in prejudice or fear. Nourish those who have lost sight of You, and heal the spirits of those who are broken. We pray this in the mighty and holy name of Jesus Christ, who suffered and died, and then rose from the dead to lead us into new life, now and forever. In Christ Jesus, I pray. Amen.
