Courageous and Compassionate, Fearless and Fair, this Brave and Benevolent Son, Husband, Father, and Brother of Blue simply wanted to make a difference in his small corner of the world. May we take a part of Brother Damon's legacy with us when we enter our daily arenas as we continue to create our own. May we vow to continue with the same Honor, Integrity, and Bravery as this True Blue served.  May we always remember how State Patrol Trooper Damon Allen Lived As Only A Hero Could. May we never forget how his life was taken so coldly and callously while keeping the public safe ... *Just preliminary, we will update as details are released: On Thanksgiving afternoon, Thursday, November 23, 2017, 1545hours(local), Trooper Allen stopped a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu for a traffic violation on SB I-45 in Freestone County south of Fairfield. It appears Trooper Allen approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver.   Trooper Allen returned to his patrol unit and the suspect fired multiple shots from a rifle at the Trooper. The suspect fled and a manhunt ensued. At approximately 2015hours, the suspect vehicle was spotted in Waller County. Additional shots were fired and the suspect was taken into custody, treated for dog bites. No additional Warriors injured. Job well done by all local, state, and federal agencies who were out there. We thank you all. Sadly, and with very heavy hearts, State Patrol Trooper Damon Allen succumbed to gunshot wounds on scene. DPS Director adds: ""Trooper Allen's dedication to duty, and his bravery and selfless sacrifice on this Thanksgiving Day, will never be forgotten." Damon leaves behind his beloved bride, three children, and families.  Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the entire extended Allen families, the Men and Women of the Texas DPS, to all first-responders who came running to assist, and to all whom have had the pleasure and the privilege of knowing and working along side this True Blue Hero.  Our Brother, as you now patrol the Highways of Heaven may you continue your vigilant watch over us all as we carry on In Our Brother's Honor.

In Honor of John Robles OLA Church
By: Michelle Robles Diss
As we honor and remember the life of John Robles, many of us know he had a heart for God’s people in Chiapas, Mexico. During his 60+ years in ministry, John built over 95 churches in different Spanish speaking countries. This is why the family has asked that in leiu of flowers, any offerings donated in honor of John be invested towards helping build one last church in Chiapas, Mexico. John was always a pillar of strength, support and discipline in the community and with his family. He was always there for his loved ones through good times and bad. John made all the difference in his children’s lives. We’ll always remember his special smile, caring heart and warm embrace. We’ll cherish the memories and lasting impact John's life had on all of us. We rejoice with heaven today because we know John is looking down on us with all his love. As his time on Earth has come to an end, we can hear his whisper in our ear to continue to carry on the heart of missions.   Al honrar y recordar la vida de Juan Robles, muchos de nosotros recordamos que tenía un gran amor por el pueblo de Dios en Chiapas, México. Durante sus más de 60 años de ministerio, Juan construyó más de 95 iglesias en diferentes países hispanohablantes. Esta es la razón por la cual la familia ha pedido que en lugar de flores, ofrendas y donaciones en honor a Juan sea invertidas para ayudar a construir una última iglesia en Chiapas, México.  Juan siempre fue un pilar de fortaleza, apoyo y disciplina en la comunidad y con su familia. Él siempre estuvo allí para sus seres queridos en los buenos y malos tiempos. Juan hizo toda la diferencia en las vidas de su hijo e hija. Siempre recordaremos su sonrisa, corazón de sirviente y abrazo cariñoso. El impacto de la vida de Juan seguirá con nosotros. Estamos felices que esta al lado de Dios mientras nos mira con amor. A pesar de que su tiempo en la tierra ha llegado a su fin, Juan nos sigue animando a seguir la misión de Dios.
