On Saturday, many current and retired Brandon PS officers gathered to celebrate Cst. Greg Andersen. As an officiant, I had the privilege of sharing Greg’s encounter with God when he gave his yes to Jesus on August 27, 2022. We know that Greg is in a glorious place with his God after a valiant three-year battle against cancer. During his final days I had the honor of getting to know his beautiful daughter Desiree and a couple of his brothers. An honor guard of 20 officers was organized and led by BPS Cst. Latreille. A light-hearted but deeply moving tribute was given by Greg’s friend, retired S/Sgt Guy Roberts. BPS Police Chief Wayne Balcaen shared from his heart and read “A Hero’s Welcome.” Greg’s brother Wayne shared precious exhortations from Greg’s youth that brought the understanding of how Greg was pre-prepared to be a police officer with excellence in character, perseverance and dedication. The service was live streamed and you can watch the hourly recording at the link below. Thank you to all of our CPCA pastors and friends who prayed for Greg during his battle. We find joy now in the knowledge that Greg is healed and know that we will see him again in heaven.
