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

To the Lindsey family, fellow deputies, and all who call Taylor 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 and your partner when you were slain by a cowardly assassin.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Lindsey gave to his community and the citizens of Florida and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 19, 2018.
