One year ago, my Blue Sister, you made your ultimate sacrifice. You are a hero that will never be forgotten.

You are not forgotten and it just breaks my heart that you were taken away when you had so much left to give. Thank you for being the kind of officer that everyone should strive to be. Rest easy Hero

Thank you for your service. You will always be missed by the community, your family, fellow law enforcement officers, and the many lives you helped protect and help saved.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Maximum love & respect to you, your family, k-9 partner, & the other officers on-scene. As we all know that the incident wil haunt & stalk them forever. Though they’ll have you watching over them forever also. Hopefully your partner was given ample time & opportunity to fully tear that *** up before he was taken into custody!

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
