The flags are flying at half-mast, A patriot, a lawman ere has passed.

Old Glory seems to say, we honor you today, Your legacy will now fulfill the past.


A legacy of service joins your name, Not for honor, or for worldly gain.

A commitment deep inside, in honor to abide, Our lives all bear the blessings of your name.


Your name is respected, yes, by all love, And tears are mingled, by your fall.

Together with Old Glory, we revere your story, And always love the man who stood so tall.


Now, as we seek for peace in candlelight, Your spirit radiates throughout the night.

Let your light so shine, in memories divine, In remembering the man who stood for right.
