Supporting Law Enforcement

To show support for our law enforcement community, I have put up this blue Christmas light. It is my small way of saying thank you to the men and women in blue that serve and protect us every day and to their families who love them.

To the families of Lakewood Police Officers Sgt. Mark Renninger, Officer Ronald Owens, Officer Tina Griswold, and Officer Greg Richards, I extend sincere condolences, thoughts, and prayers.

Having read about each of these officers, they were exceptional in their duties, committed to their families, and actively engaged in their communities. Their absence leaves unrepairable holes in the fabrics of their families and our neighborhoods. May we always remember their valor in how they lived amongst us.

Thanks once again Kathy-for your support of community!
Our Blue Lights are shining on our outside fir tree in rememberance of all law enforcement.
Five blue"Star" ornaments are placed on our home Christmas tree to honor Washington State's five fallen officer's.
I have so much respect for your knowledge and for your determination to answer questions the public ask's of you.
Being unafraid to show your Christianity shows me also that you have learned that we as Christians are called to be the "salt of the earth."
Though our "Religions" are not the same I know that you must also is HOPE that we share for the World if not exactly the same "Faith."
Merry Christmas!
