I wanted to let all know that one of our fellow officers had a massive heart attack on Saturday, May 26th! He has been on life support with no brain activity since then. Can I please request all the prayers possible!! He is not only one of our K-9 officers, but has been a lifelong childhood friend of me personally, so Its been absolutely devastating. He is 34 years old and I know the Lord may have plans for him, but I know we all are selfishly just not ready to let him go! Thanks all...

I will be keeping your friend in my thoughts and prayers. I too have experienced this with several LEO friends and can understand what all of you connected to him are experiencing. I too have not wanted to let go and have seen miracles, but I will also be honest I have also seen what I didn't want to happen as well. Only God knows what he has in mind for your friend but no matter what happens know that God will be there for your friend, his family including his family of blue, and friends. Hang in there. We are here for all of you. Keep us updated.

Crombie, would you please PM me his name, so we can remember him by name at our healing service today? (And if you don't get this in time, we'll remember him anyway, naming his situation-- God will know who we're talking about.)

It certainly doesn't sound good, with no brain activity, and perhaps the best thing for him and for his family will be if he passes on to the next part of his life. I hope that doesn't sound cold or callused on my part, but I have seen young people like this get "trapped" in a twilight zone of being on life support without hope, while hospitals and lawyers and families battle over what is to be done. That is just as heart-breaking as the out-and-out loss of a person, but a lot more frustrating and contentious.

God will know what is best for him and his family, and that is what I will be praying for. Miracles have happened before now, so I don't overlook that hope, even as I try to wrap my mind around more likely possibilities.

May Thy hand of God shield our brother from all harm and may Thy Hand of God smoother our brother will love and effection to him and his family and all dear friends to him. Keep up the good fight friend whoever you are. Should he not make it, at least he will go to protect us in a better place and protect Thy Streets of Heaven with all of our brothers and sisters whom reside there now...

We will remember Jason in our prayers at my church tomorrow, and also Game Warden Ty Patterson of the TX Parks and Wildlife Dept., who drowned Wednesday... as well as continuing to pray for Matthew's recovery, and the recovery of Officer Jason Register.

The prayer list just gets longer and longer....

I just wanted to say thank you all for the prayers that have been passed on in reference to K-9 Officer Matt Lovejoy. It is with deep regret to inform everyone that he passed away this afternoon at 1645 hours. His family was with him in the hospital, as he never came out of the state he was in. I know he knew we were all there with him and how much he was loved!! Again, thank you for all the prayers and continued support, as we now let Matt patrol the streets in Heaven.

O God, in our hearts, we name those who are facing illness and pain. We join our prayers with the prayers of all who love them. Give them renewed comfort and courage. Strengthen in them the healing powers You have placed within us all. Guide the hands and hearts of those who are entrusted with their care. May the knowledge of Your love and ours give added hope to them and to their dear ones. May they find even greater strength because our prayers are linked with theirs.
