Reflections for Police Officer Frankie Anibal Gutierrez

Frankie was my best friend in high school at Bradwell Institute in Hinesville, GA. He had just arrived from Brooklyn, New York and had all of the requisite swag; he knew how to dress, how to talk, and how to dance. I have memories of walking home from school and him always being in a great mood... laughing, joking, and dancing. I can't even remember him not ever being exuberantly happy. As much as I remember him being a huge goofball, I have to say he really influenced the person I came to be. He was truly hard to dislike, and he really did have a big heart.
I got to speak to him a little before he passed, and I remember feeling very proud of all that he'd accomplished in his life. I wish I could have had a little time to get to know him again.
My heart and prayers go out to his family. I know how important family was to him, and I can only imagine what a great father and husband he was.
I know he will be sorely missed.

Dear Family of Officer Gutierrez,
Recently I met Officer Gutierrez mother at the post office. She told me her son was an officer who had passed away. I assured her I would look up her son’s ‘story’ and that I would pray for her and her family.
My father was an officer and homicide detective. I understand the sacrifice they make and how challenging this line of work can be on the officers and their families. It truly saddens me to see the lack of respect that these public servants often receive.
There are no words that can lessen the grief, but we do have God’s promises to lean on. I pray for all of Officer Gutierrez family, friends, and fellow officers for the “peace that passes understanding”.

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.

“Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.” [Matthew 5:9]

“And he [Jesus] said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” [Luke 23:43 ESV]
