Reflections for Detention Officer Julio Cesar Martinez

Officer Martinez,
On today, the 2nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Ellis County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement then that of a Corrections/Detention Officer.

Babe JC and daddy to our kids, I will always be thankful to Jesus for the beautiful loving, caring handsome husband, father and grandpa you are. You are the love of my Life, my God serving Loving Handsome Husband, bestfriend and Amazingly beautiful father to our 4 children and always will be. You were the head of our household, You loved & served God well in every area of your life. I miss you so much, I miss your voice, I miss your smile, I miss everything about you, I miss how you made me feel, and how much you made me laugh every day. Thank you for all the love letters and songs you sang to me every day and I still hear your beautiful voice so full of Life. Those are the Best 33 years of my Life being married to you! I will always keep you in my mind, my thoughts, my heart, and my soul. I love you so much for being a Soldier for Christ. You knew people is what Jesus was passionate about and you were definitely a Man after God's own heart. Thank you for sharing the message of Jesus Christ with every person, friend, co-worker, and stranger you came across at your work places. I am grateful to you for loving me so much and taking good care of me. I will continue to serve and honor God with my Life; just as you did. My heart is broken and sadden because you were taken away from us so soon. I know we have God's word and promises that we will be reunited forever with our Lord Jesus Christ for all eternity in Heaven. I miss you so much, I miss being in your presence, I miss your Godly wisdom, and I miss hearing your voice. I know that in the deepest part of my soul that Death is not the end. You always told me to do right by God; because this Life on earth was only to prepare us for an eternity with Jesus Christ in Heaven. Babe, I love you so much until we see each other again, Please save a room for me up there with you, my Momma, your momma and our Savior Jesus Christ. Love you always, my high-school sweetheart and love of my life! Love you! always in my heart forever! unto Eternity, Beatrice

JC Martinez

It's been over 1 year now since I've seen or heard your voice. You were taken away from us in the blink of an eye. A piece of our heart was also taken away the day that you left us. It's hard to understand why or how this happened. In the midst of all our questions, hurt, and pain we know this one thing. You were faithful until the end...faithful to God, to your beautiful wife, to your children (& grandchildren), and to the law enforcement profession. And according to 1st Thessalonians 4:14, which says, "For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers (JC Martinez) who have died."

I know this is a temporary light affliction to be separated from you. Thanks for blessing us with your presence and living a life that demonstrated honesty, loyalty, and grit. May all those who knew you, never forget the man of faith that you were. Lastly, may we all be inspired to surrender more of our lives to the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.

Let us strive to live and love like Jesus.

Most merciful God, You hold each of us dear to Your heart. Hold all our nation’s 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 sons (children) of God.” [Matthew 5:9]
