We Lost Our Sheriff

Please pray for our community as we mourn the loss of our Sheriff, Allen Bridges.

He died on Saturday after collapsing at home. The Funeral service is Wednesday, 10am at First Baptist Church in San Marcos.

When I think of the impact of the modern-day sheriff, his or her role is often minimized in our generation.  Most sheriffs are managers of large organizations that fulfill PR, Human Resources, CEO, and other business type functions.  However, when I think back to the way sheriffs began in the Old West, the role seems so much more revered and exciting.  I picture John Wayne or Wyatt Earp type characters slinging 6-shooters at wild gunmen and cattle rustlers.

If we could see the mess that modern-day deputies and other peace officers save us from, we would probably be amazed and much more thankful for their role.

Today, we will be honoring the office and the man.  Thousands will gather to pay their respects.  I have heard reports that the procession will be at least a mile with just patrol cars. Not to mention all the others making the long trip down RR12.

Thanks to all of you who put your life on the line to protect us.  We appreciate your service to our community!
