Thank you Officer Sintic for your sacrifice and service to our country and the community of Los Angeles. I was a childhood friend of your son, Nick, and was so sad to learn he passed in 1988 after I found your memorial. I remember how heartbroken he was when his mother passed, too. We were just kids, but I remember that day on the playground with Nick. I am sure you are all in heaven, together. I too went into military service and LE. I am honored to have known your son, even if for a short period of time. I never knew your fate and I am so thankful for this perspective on my own life. They God uses all things for good. God bless you and your family. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." Matthew 5:9
