"Heaven Called It's Hero's Home"  

Dedicated to:
Butte County Sheriffs Department
Lieutenant Larry Estes
Deputy Bill Hunter
Killed in the line of duty

There's a reason I cried
When I heard two officers had died
The reality hit hard in the life that we live
To a job where people are asking you to constantly give

Two of the finest today paid the ultimate price
And with pride and honor made their greatest sacrifice
The public has no idea on a day to day, what you went through
And how many lives that are now touched, the killer never knew

How you sometimes went to work, with very little sleep,
Duty and honor, a vow you must keep
And like most cops you were most likely underpaid
But it's a job you loved, the one for which you were made

To protect and serve, is how you lived your lives
My heart goes out to your now widowed wives
It's a knock on the door every officer's spouse fears
And that's why today my eye's are filled with tears

Our thoughts and prayers are for the families that will be without
A father, a husband, a brother who will be missed beyond doubt

Heaven called two of your finest home today
A price anyone who loves an officer hopes they will never pay
Lord, Watch over each and every unsung hero we pray
So they can be with the ones they love at the end of their day.
