My heartfelt condolences to Investigator Sandberg's family, friends, and fellow colleagues of the Aitkin County Sheriff's Office. 2 Timothy 3:1 states the times we are living in are "critical". The times we are living are very evident from reading the incident details of another senseless act of violence towards a LEO. Despite the times we are living in, there is hope, especially for our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 21:3,4 reads "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I pray God's promises concerning our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death bring comfort to all who knew investigator Sandberg
