Officer Roger Castillo,(1969-2011) & Officer Amanda Haworth,(1966-2011)…Take Your Wings!!!

" Detective Castillo"

"Detective Haworth"

Gone at the blink of an eye … so many questions unanswered … and everyone asking W.H.Y?

What do you say … when not one but two officers … are so savagely taken away?

How do you look in the faces of their love ones left behind … and tell them that mommy and daddy won’t be home this time … because someone committed a terrible crime?

How do you attempt to ease their pains? Tell them that if they believe in God… they’ll see them again!!!

“Always remember … as long as their children shall live … then their memories will never die.”

I won’t say goodbye to you … because I believe every word of the Bible is true.

I know we have to part for a little while … but when I enter the pearly gates … I know … I’ll see your smile … but for now … rest-in-peace, my sweet child!
