On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when David was killed.

To the Ortiz family, fellow officers, and all who call David beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost for the dedicated service Patrolman Ortiz gave to his community and the citizens of Texas , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 14, 2016.
