Reflections for Detective James R. Peri

Detective Peri,

Thank you for your sacrifice for our nation. May you be with the Lord and may he be with your family.

From that day back in 1989 when we met until you passed. From college, to the fraternity, to working together on the PD and then you leaving to go to Bloomfield. From our kids going to school together to seeing you at the bagel shop. You were taken too young and I know Michele and the kids miss you like crazy. I wish life and family hadn't gotten in the way and we had seen each other more often. Know I think of you all the time and the guys and I will always remember you. You are not easily forgotten. You and big blue Jeep were larger than life. Rest in Peace buddy.

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.
