Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family and colleagues in this great time of need. I ask that we continue to think of all who are suffering from this horrible loss and lean into God for comfort and peace.

Thank You for your son, your brother and for his devotion to serve. Bless you for sharing him with us.

2Cor. 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
2Cor. 1:4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV)

to be willing to help others, while being in dangerous situations. You were very brave. Rest in peace young officer.
