In The Line of Duty


My husband's badge looks a lot like this right now. He has a black band on it because an officer close to his department died this past weekend.


One of the officers that #1 works with had a brother die on duty. He was a police officer in the state of Washington. This officer was also a deputy in our county jail for a few years and served in the military.

He had an unexpected heart attack while on duty. He and his wife had two children, and recently found out they were expecting a baby-he was in his 30s. Please remember the Walsh family in your prayers as they make travel and funeral arrangements and deal with this unexpected event.

So tragic. So sad for his family and all the officers on his department. I pray God is with them as they grieve.

Officer Hottie just told me about this this morning. My heart and prayers are with the family and the departments affected by this.

Wow, that's awful. Praying for the family and the departments involved. It's never easy having an officer fall in the line of duty. Praying for you guys too as baby prepares to make her entrance. Can't wait to meet her.

I saw the story on the news over the weekend! He actually works only about 20 minutes from where we live! So sorry for #1 and the loss! We've lost so many in this are this year... I think the count is up to 10 in the last 6 months!!

Wow what to say?! So sad. Will keep them in our prayers 4 sure. It always hurts to find out of a fellow fallen officer. God is with them I'm sure. Thanks for the announcement, though I wish it weren't so.
