"No Regrets"

Trooper Matthew Evans, Oklahoma Highway Patrol

In Memoriam:
Trooper Matthew Scott Evans, Oklahoma Highway Patrol

Oklahoma Highway Patrol

We may never understand it,
the risks these brave ones take,
but occasionally we see a bit
of the difference their lives make.

Some do it for the action,
others find it a callin'.
All find the satisfaction,
and few become the fallen.

Being an officer is what he loved,
To him as good as it gets.
Law was what he dreamed of,
He would have no regrets.

And though it saddens all of us
to lose him in this way
He knew how an officer must
Live life to the fullest everyday.
