All those who have served and given their lives are a rare breed. Every day that they report for duty and turn the key and roll out, they know in their hearts it may be the last time. But they go anyway, because that is who they are. To the dear families and Friends my heart goes out to you. There is no doubt that they are still on patrol and still watching over their families and friends from on high. Chaplain Gibson "SEMPER FI" Brothers and Sisters!

GOD did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, day without night, but; HE did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.
The community has lost a dedicated protector, the family a loved one, the Department a comrade, the Nation a hero, but Heaven has gained an Angel. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and I ask GOD to watch over each member and give them strength during this time of their need.

I reflect, and remember:
All gave some
And some gave all
Some stood through
For the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties
And recall Some gave all. (unknown writer)

It is abundantly clear that ALL of your fallen officers shared a common thread - they were of the highest caliber yet modest and unassuming in the approach of their duties. I believe that for as long as such
men and women patrol your streets with such commitment and professionalism, then you have much to be proud of. My heart goes out to all the bereaved families, but be assured, there is someone in "every" corner of the world who cares!
