Micah Flick was a man of God, family and community. On Saturday, that was repeated often during his memorial service at New Life Church in Colorado Springs.

He gave his life for us and his wife wanted us to remember that any other officer in blue would have done the same.

"He was given his badge in 2007 but he was born a cop," said Chris Brown, Flick's brother-in-law.

His wife, Rachael Flick remained strong as she shared how Flick was with her family. "Micah was so professional but he was a ton of fun and a total goof," she said.

He liked to sing, dance and serve his community.

"Micah was an amazing provider, he went to work in rain or shine," said Rachel, "I know you can relate to that because you are faithful."

In return for that service and faithfulness, Rachael asked the rest of us for one thing: "We have to make a change in the way we think and the way we raise our children."

She asked for respect and honor of every officer in blue, in the name of Deputy Micah Flick.
