While I can't compete against a quote from Abraham Lincoln, brother you and you family, friends, and co workers are in my thoughts, prayers, and my heart. Rest easy warrior and thank you for protecting the innocent.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

Thank you for your service. My heart aches for this community and the sheriff's office. One coward has decimated this community by taking three heros and a loyal K9. I pray that God will bring some sort of peace to all of the families and fellow law enforcement involved. All are heros taken too soon.

Capt. Frasure, thank you for your service. You will never be forgotten, nor will those who died because of an animal. God please forgive me for not mourning the loss of the despicable creature that killed these Keepers of the Peace. Their families are now hurting beyond belief and under the circumstances, it's probably true that HIS family is now at peace.

Brother, may God Bless you and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Captain Ralph Frasure and the extended law enforcement family of the Prestonsburg Police Department, Kentucky.

End of Watch Thursday, June 30, 2022.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
