(Isaiah 11:6) 6 The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them.
So it will be in the not so distant future when we will have access to nature's wonders in animals and never long again for an animal companion ever again, what joy God has promised for all us animal lovers.
Bandit no doubt was a great companion.
R.I.P BANDIT. WE LOVE YOU.

You are a true hero here in Chandler and you have touched the hearts of so many. You are loved and will be missed so much. May you have eternal fun playing ball and hanging out with all your doggy buddies. I pray for you everyday.

You were an huge asset to the Police force and you will be greatly missed.
Rest in peace our friend.
The Hughes Family (Mesa, AZ)
Please accept our Deepest Sympathy
I'm sure you kept the people of Chandler,AZ very safe. You're a hero Bandit!
There is a bridge connecting Heaven & Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because id its colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole. They play together all day.
There is only one thing missing: They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. Each day they run and play untill the day comes when on suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! They eyes are staring! and this one suddenly runs from the group.
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes ofyour trusting friend,
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never to be separated again.
I've only lived in Chandler (Sun Lakes) for five months, but I'm sure you did a fine job servicing the community. Your untimely death was not in vain. RIP and know you're in a better place.
What a beautiful boy you were! I'm sure you will be missed! Rest in Peace Bandit!
Here's a gentle hug and a kiss between the ears for you, sweet Bandit. You look just as kind and precious as my own dog. We know you did a good job here on Earth and feel so badly that you suffered before you went to Heaven. Peace be with you, little one.
Run free Bandit, loyal hero!
You are a true hero! Love Liz
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
Ruth Ann Mahaffey (author)
Even though you’re gone you continue to teach us all valuable lessons and have filled our hearts and did more for us then we did for you.
Rest in peace, Bandit.
Organizer, Bandit Memorial Service
May you walk over the rainbow bridge and be free of the pain that you had suffered. Romp and play like you have never done before. You gave unselfishly, you were your handlers eyes, his ears, and his protection you were dependant upon him as he was you. You will be missed by many, even the ones who never "knew" you. Tears of sadness have been shed for the pain that you had suffered, but we know now you are free......
You will be missed ever so much
God Bless you.
We love you.
Nickolas & MaryEllen
I will look for you at the bridge Bandit!!!
Bandit I will keep you in my thoughts, heart and prayers!!!
Bandit, you will be missed. Knowing that you are at peace now is at least a little comfort to us left behind. Please rest in peace and know that your life here in service will not be forgotten.
Thank you Bandit for your loyalty and protection. My heart aches thinking of the pain you must have suffered.
I know your family is grieving; we grieve with them. It's very difficult to lose a good friend, two footed or four. Play in the flowers and chase the balls wherever you are, brave one.
Dear Bandit, rest in peace sweet doggie, thank you for your bravery in protecting us, have fun in heaven you truly are an angel. God bless you, look out for Heidi and say hi for us. Sweet dreams.
Our thoughts and prayer are with the family, and we will always remember your sweet face Bandit.
Bandit, thank you for all of your wonderful work, you gave your life unconditionally.... Lorraine Lilley, Altamonte Springs, Fl
You were not only SUPERCUTE, but no doubt you served the community to the best of your ability and made them proud and for that you will be blessed and GOD will take care of you, poochie pooch.....YOU ARE LOVED AND WILL BE MISSED BY MANY, MANY PEOPLE.
If you return to life the first thing you would do is forgive. For the most endearing quality of the dog is it ability to forgive and to love unconditionally. Rest in Peace.
Bandit, may you find peace in heaven.
There is something unbelievably special about animals in that they are always so forgiving and loving. God bless you Bandit - I know that you are in a much better place.
Sorry about Bandit, i am sure he was a very loving and protecting partner

Bandit, It's time for you to rest now. Thank you for your service and bravery to our community.
Max, Ally, and Pepsi send licks and tail wags. I look at your handsome face and I think of all the K9's who quietly serve our communities with dignity.
I will light a candle for you, and send prayers for your human family. I'm sure you loved them. Just another lesson we humans can take from our dogs.
Thank you, Bandit.
Bandit, You had the honor of serving your community in a way not many other dogs have the opportunity to do. You were a strong partner, companion, friend and family member to your handler. Please watch over him and his family. May the memories of the four years your were together help heal the hurt and void in their lives. It was a true honor meeting you and your handler/partner. Heaven is blessed to have you as a resident. God Bless you and your handler. You will be missed.
Robyn, Ana, Andrew, Alex and James

A former K-9 handler
Hey Bandit, Thanks for being a hero. Your work is very appreciated. You should find Aspen, Sydney, Scooby, and Baby now that you're in Heaven. They'll love to play with you. Enjoy your peaceful days! From the Hanson Clan - Warren & Sharon and our 4-legged kids Tyler, Laredo, Sierra, Buddy, and Brandy.
You will be missed greatly Bandit! Your life was cut short but in the short time you affected us all and acomplished many great things! Maybe we will meet someday at the pearly gates. Say hello to Bonnie for me you will like her im sure.R.I.P Bandit!
Bandit, you did your job well, but left us too soon. Rest in Peace.
Thoughts of Bandit are with me every day. His life was too short and his demise is too painful to think about. I will think of him, romping with all my past animal pals.
Jill Anne & Charlie, my Schnauzer/Terrier
You've crossed the Rainbow Bridge and are now with Barbaro and all the others at Heaven's Gate Farm. I visit their website (equineheaven.com) daily and know that you could not be in better hands! You were truly a hero and inspiration in your short time here on earth.
You served well; run and play now. Paint rainbows and sunsets...toss shooting stars and listen to wishes. Say hi to Chuck and Bonnie.
To a real hero,
Dogs in general are a special breed. They provide protection comfort devotion and love to their masters and mistresses. Bandit was all of that to all of us. God speed to a faithful and loyal public servant.
Thank you for protecting our community. You are a handsome dog. Have fun with Toby and Lacey and all of the other wonderful pets in doggie heaven.
I am so sorry. Your fiends at the bridge are glad to see you I know. They just weren't expecting to see you so soon. It wasn't your time.
Thank you so much for helping to keep all of us safe. We appreciate your courage and mourn your loss. Enjoy unlimited belly scratches and dog treats in heaven. I know we will all be safer with you watching over us. May God also be kind to Ofr. Lovejoy who surely must be missing his partner and friend.
Lots of love,
The Schwieger Family
Run free, sweet boy. There is another star in the heavens tonight.
You are such a pretty dog, I hope that rest in peace.
God bless you bandit. Say hi to my German Sheperd "nano" and Shitsu "Peque", both in doggie heaven, too, for me please.
Just this side of Heaven, is a place called The Rainbow Bridge...
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
THEN YOU CROSS RAINBOW BRIDGE TOGETHER...
God Bless you Bandit and your Partner and his family, and yes We call him your partner because each would give up their life to protect the other. We are praying for peace and healing for your family as we know that is what you would want, Thank you for serving, you are a hero and will not be forgotten.
Say hi to Bugs for me Bandit. Thank you for adding a spark to Bekki and Jared's days! You will be missed and remembered as a good dog and good friend.
Bandit, the whole community is feeling sad also we feel the pain your handler is suffering. Thank you Bandit for a job well done.
God Bless you Bandit, thank you for
the service you gave to our community, you are a beautiful angel now, you & your family are in our prayers, Love the Hernandez Family
All dogs are heros and Bandit you have reminded us of that. Thank you for your service and your courage. You have left this world a better place. Have fun in heaven just being a dog. You will be missed and welcomed by all who have gone before you. We all love you..Rudy, Garth, Rat and the Donald..
Bandit you will be missed by all you have touched and ones that didn't know you. You did your job and the Chandler community thank you. Godspeed my friend. It is time for you to romp and play.
Bandit I hope you're running around with all the other dogs in Dog Heaven and enjoying yourself. The good ones are always taken away from us so soon. Thank you for saving lives. I wish my 2 year old son would have had the chance to have met you. Every time he sees your face on the TV, he gets so excited and happy, even he could see that you were a wonderful dog. God Bless.
Thank you for protecting all of us, May you find peace and happiness with all your other officers in Heaven. We all know you will sit at the right hand of God. God Bless all fallen policemen.
You will be missed! Tnx for the good job! Now run, be free and play with Duke, Duke I and Pup.

Officer Bandit, You are truly a Champion and a Hero. We all are praying for you and rest in peace in Heaven. The Cinnamond Family.
Bandit, Thank you for serving our community. It's your time to enjoy chasing rabits on cool mountain, splashing clear water of river, taking naps on green spring field & explore the nature of all. In heaven beautiful souls will hug & kiss you anytime you want it. Say " Hello & I love you " if you see my dog, Shadow there.
You were more than a dog, you were a true compainion. Chase those balls and have freedom in heaven.
"He's just a dog." some will say , the kind that like's to run and play . Police work was his love no doubt , something he could not do with out . But now he can show his love and pride 'cause he'll be sitting by God's side ...
Bandit, you are a hero in my eyes.. My blessed Cassie, Molly and Slapshot are there to play with you and make you at home beyond the Rainbow Bridge...
Thank your for your service to our community, Bandit. May you rest in peace.
When God had made the earth and sky the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals the fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine and give each one a name."
And so He traveled far and wide and everywhere He went,
a little creature followed Him until it's strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said, "Dear Lord, there's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him, "I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front and called you DOG, My friend."
Bandit, Your story touched so many of us. Some knew you many of us didn't. We are so sorry you couldn't be here longer with us. You are truly missed by everyone. RIP sweet Bandit. Fly with the angels in blissful peace.
Bandit, may you rest by cool waters, lay in tall green grass...your work on Earth is done, your after life just begun.....look for Scout, he will be there waiting for you.
Beautiful Bandit, Your life here was too short, but you have won the hearts of many admirers who didn't even know you. We can only hope and pray, that your senseless passing will not happen to another animal...
You are now in a better place to run around. You will be missed and will always be in our hearts.
Rest In Peace ol loyal one.
You served your community well.
What a good boy. I know you were waiting patiently for your next command. Peace and love go with you. Play to your hearts content with the other boys in heaven.
Bandit, You look so happy in your picure. May you be that happy and more up with God, all the angels and all of the many other doggies and furry friends you will have to play with for eternity. Dogs give unconditional love, and you are extra special because you were highly trained to protect the public from bad guys. Sorry you had to leave us so soon, but now you can play 24/7 with lots of friends...no cares, no worries, no pain, ever again. We love you.
God Speed Bandit. Thank you and all your fellow mates. Would also like to thank the K-9 handler, as without them there would be no K-9's. Our thoughts and prayers are with your handler and his family. They are the ones that are missing you the most.

I Saw an Angel
I saw an angel today, oh what a vision to see.
This beautiful angel sent only to me.
My eyes filled with tears at this glorious sight,
This angel so lovely made my heart feel so light.
I held an angel today, in my hands it did rest
Surely it had to be one of God's best.
So soft, so tender, so fragile it seemed
To hold such an angel was more than I dreamed.
I kissed an angel today, I just couldn't resist
As I looked at this sweetie I felt so much bliss
My heart over poured with a feeling of love
For this sweet little creature sent from Heaven above.
I lost an angel today; I guess God had other plans
This precious little life slipped right through my hands
My heart felt so empty as tears fell from my eyes
I didn't have the chance to say my good byes.
I saw an angel today, one I'll never forget
Those short precious moments I'll never regret
He took something with him on his journey above A piece of my heart to remember my love.
Run free and easy, Bandit.
rest in peace Bandit. you are a true hero.
Bandit, what a precious animal. How sad I am, my heart is broken.
Bandit.....when I hear I was so shocked this happened to such a great dog who had so much more time to live and serve the public. You will be truely missed, your life was cut too short too fast RIP and cross the rainbow bridge to never suffer again. You were a great brave loving dog....goodbye Bandit
Your spirit shines from your photo. We're all proud of you and very sorry that you had to leave this world the way you did. I know you'll have lots of friends after crossing the rainbow bridge.

Dearest and beloved Bandit,
Our hearts broke as hews of your loss spread. We mourn for you and pray for you as well but we believe you are in place now where you can guard and protect yours. We also believe you can help your "partner" heal from where you are. As our hearts hurt as only bystanders of your tragedy, we can only try and imagine the pain and sorrow Sgt. Lovejoy must be feeling. We pray for both of you at this time. There is only the consolation in the knowledge of the endless rewards you well deserve and shall receive on your new path. Rest in Peace, Much Love and God Speed.
YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL.
I have a nephew that was with the canine unit in Glendale and I know his dog was his partner just like Bandit was to his owner.
I to am an animal lover and I appreciate these intelligent patrol dogs very much. Thank you for sharing your life with us.
God Bless you and keep you safe!
You are a true HERO!!!!!
I am so very,very sorry for the suffering you must have went through. Things will surely be better now that you are in heaven. You are a "HERO" in my heart.
Bandit - The department lost a great asset and Arizona lost a fine officer/ Thank you for everything you have done!! Rest in peace Bandit

My heart just broke when I heard about you. God must have had a special job for you to do up there!I know your handler feels devastated! Thank you for all your wonderful work you did here, you were VERY SPECIAL ~ you will not be forgotten. My little Peaches (dog) and Kissa (cat)share in my sympathy!
As an animal lover, I mourn the loss of a beautiful "Baby" that warmed the hearts of so many that he lived to protect. My deepest apologies to the "Family" of Bandit. But just remember that he will protect you from where he is now.
I know that God has a place for special angels like you. Rest in Peace.
Officer Bandit - while your time here on earth was short, the impact that you made was great. The department lost a great comrade and Arizona lost one of its finest officers. You will forever remain in our hearts. Rest in peace now, Bandit.
Your work is done and now you can run and play all the time.
You are so beautiful and so full of grace thanks for protecting us all doing your job.
Rest in peace and romp in heaven with all the angels and Jesus
There's always going to be a special place in heaven for special "Babies" like Bandit !!!
