Saint of the Police, pray

The cause of the accident is unknown and is under investigation. Whatever the cause, the result is tragic for all involved.

Police officials describe Mike as a bright light with a promising future in law enforcement. He is also described as a loving husband and a proud father. He was a valued friend and colleague to many.

He is also described as an exceptional investigator who was proud to be a police officer and had passions not only for his family and policing, but for baseball, music and life in general.

Mike is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife, Alyson; and his son, Ben (age 3).

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next. 

Pray for the woman driver and her daughter who were also victims of this tragic accident. 

Pray that Mike is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
