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

To the Allen family, fellow officers, and all who call Damon 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.
