Today is the anniversary of the passing of John Annarumma who was a coworker. John had been promoted to Senior Inspector before his passing. I write this to remember him and the great times we had together. Covid took him. He was a father, veteran, law enforcement officer, and a friend. He is the only inspector to get a moment of silence at a statewide training conference due to his passing. I wept silently looking at his photograph projected in front of 200 of his coworker inspectors. RIP John!

Inspector Annarumma,
On today, the 2nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army and FLARNG-especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

John was one of the best I have had the pleasure of serving with. I was in the academy with him at Raiford and proudly knew him as a friend. God bless you brother. Fly high well take it from here.

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.
