Officer Down

I wanted to inform everyone that we just lost a deputy in our local area. He was found this evening at his home after working a shift tonight with a bullet through his head. This is the third suicide in our area over that last three years. He was married and has two small children.

We are asking for your prayers for his family and the brotherhood that all of our husbands belong to. It is a devastating loss for all of us in the law enforcement community.

I will keep everyone posted if any memorial services will be set up.

He was a very nice man and he will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry. It doesn't matter how the death occurs, it's still a hero gone and a friend/co-worker/family member now forever missed. {{{HUGS}}} to all of you.
