I read the story and was sad to hear such a thing. Very tuff line of work and I appreciate all of our police, fire, rescue and Military doing a very very hard job!

Prayers sent.

Thanks guys, of all places to see something for officer Mark Bedard posted, I didn't think it would be here. I am a cousin of his through marriage in the family. He was a guy that loved the great outdoors, the hunting and fishing. Today (11/14), one of the eulogys said that three weeks prior to the accident, he had been out Elk hunting and got his first elk. He was also a member of the Hudson Rod and Gun club as well.

Thank you for keeping the family in your prayers. May he never be forgotten.

Also, to any police, fire, rescue, or anyone serving the public, Stay save!!! Thank you for your service.

Matthew 5:9

RIP my Brother.

The policeman stood and faced God,

Which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining,

just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To my church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,

"No lord, I guess I ain't,

because those of us who carry a badge

can't always be a saint."

I've had to work most Sundays,

and at times my talk was rough,

and sometimes I've been violent,

because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,

that wasn't mine to keep

though I worked a lot of overtime

when the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,

though at time I shook with fear.

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

among the people here.

They never wanted me around

except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,

It needn't be so grand.

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne

where the saints had often trod.

As the policeman waited quietly,

for the judgment of his god.

"Step forward now, policeman,

you’ve born your burdens well.

Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,

you’ve done your time in hell"

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
