As our community mourns the loss of Butch Baker and Elizabeth Butler, Santa Cruz Police officers who were killed in the line of duty last week, please remember their families in your prayers.
The tears flowed
like a river,
streaming down my face.
Another brother, another sister gone,
you got your call to a much better place.
The sky was blue and the sun was shining,
your time to go had such bad timing.
You should of had a long time to drift,
But for you - now we will finish the shift.
The skies are dark now,
and the gloom has set in.
But bringing in the bad guy,
The light is getting brighter again.
Now when I think of you -- I think good thoughts.
We love you and miss you lots.
It's awful to think how this man took your lives away,
But, now I know no harm can be done to you today.
