On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Michael was killed in this tragic accident.

To the Foley family, fellow officers, and all who call Michael 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Foley gave to his community and the citizens of California , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 23, 2017.
