Deputy Sheriff Edward Schrader, A brother Law Enforcement Officer. It's been 42 years now and I still remember the day I attended your funeral. I was 21 years old and had only 6 months with the San Jacinto Police Department. There were hundreds of fellow police officers joined with me to say goodbye to a brother officer who sacrificed his life to protect others. I was only 3 years younger and your on duty death left me with an "Officer Safety" mindset for the next 30 years of my career with the Banning Police, Hemet Police, and Montana Highway Patrol. Although I attended numerous officer survival classes to help me during "High Risk Situations", I would
recall the day I stood by your open casket and said goodbye. That in itself was a form of Officer survival which kept me safe. It was like you were there watching over me during many life threating situations. Thanks for serving Riverside County and the State of California. May you be one of the first to greet me at Heaven's Gate. I'll be looking for you..... Adam - Molt, Montana
