Reflections for Police Officer Zlatko Nicholi Sintic


This morning i was surprised and very touched to read the reflection left by my brothers friend. I have often written a reflection here to only delete it(not sure exactly why). The important thing is when i read the comments that are left here about my family it is very touching and wonderful to know that they are not forgotten. Life has so many challenges that its easy to forget the ones we lost and the happier times we shared with them. From the deepest part of my heart and soul i want to say thank you to each and everyone who has taken there time to remember my dad,mom and brother.

Thank you Officer Sintic for your sacrifice and service to our country and the community of Los Angeles. I was a childhood friend of your son, Nick, and was so sad to learn he passed in 1988 after I found your memorial. I remember how heartbroken he was when his mother passed, too. We were just kids, but I remember that day on the playground with Nick. I am sure you are all in heaven, together. I too went into military service and LE. I am honored to have known your son, even if for a short period of time. I never knew your fate and I am so thankful for this perspective on my own life. They God uses all things for good. God bless you and your family. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." Matthew 5:9

A new year, Officer Sintic, and thanking you once again for your service to the citizens of Los Angeles. I will be visiting the cemetery soon to pay my respects to my C.H.P. brother-in-law close to you. I'll give the L.A.P.D. shield on your plaque a little polishing.

Thanksgiving day, Officer Sintic. Thank you for your service to the citizens of the great state of California. I cannot find it now, but I recall reading a post on this site from several years ago. She commented "I know you saved us" in reference to the 211 silent alarm that day in 1976.

Hi George ... We are well here. The hills surrounding the cemetery in Chatsworth will soon take on a green tone from the recent rains. The ancient oak trees throughout the park grounds continue to flourish as an everlasting tribute to law enforcement.

Beloved Nick and Linda, now I know you are in Heaven together. Your Love for each other was like no other, a one that you went through many challenges. Oh how I still miss seeing the two of you, I was the lucky one
too know you both, just wish you would have known that I feel this way years later, now that I am 72 years old.
( I meet Linda at Litton where we both worked )
Love to you both.

Hi Sharon, good to hear from you. How are all of you doing? Hope to see you all the next time in Cal. Take care.

Hi Tim, been trying to get to Calif. but there is always a hold up. Thanks again for the comments and flowers for Nick. I wrote a book about our family that I think you may find interesting. It's called Escape from Bad Schachen and available on Amazon. It is a true story about our father who was a Military Attache attached to the Royal Yugoslav Air force and stationed in Berlin when Germany attacked Yugoslavia on April 6th 1941. Nick is mentioned in it also. Tanks again Tim and hope to see you .

George: I visited the cemetery yesterday, the 27th of August. My C.H.P. brother-in-law would have been 72. Close by at Nick's site I left a sprig of honeysuckle flower from just outside the premises. Some buds were open, others still closed. I think of the still closed flowers as optimism and opportunity for a more peaceful world. Reading all the comments about Nick I am certain he would have contributed many more years towards that future. As I was leaving L.A.P.D.'s helicopter flew over. Coincidence, or maybe something more ?

For George Sintic, Nick's younger brother: Thanks for your April comments. I still visit the cemetery often, and can tell you all of the plaques and surrounding vegetation near the fallen peace officers are well maintained. I think many people continue to visit those sites. If you see the white 22' RV parked just outside the cemetery, that is mine.

It is hard for me to believe that it has been 40 yrs since your death. You died on my birthday and that is always a sad memory for me. We worked together at Devonshire Div. and I remember attending your funeral at Oakwood Cemetary. Little did I know then, that just 4 months later I would be attending my husband Jeff's funeral at exactly the same place. You both are near each other, and although you never met ... you are brothers.

I'm sure George Sintic would love to hear from anyone who knew Nick. He always talks about his brother.

Wayne... thank you for expression on ODMP. It is good that you said what was on your mind. I hope you get a feedback. As for me, I can tell you I visit the cemetery in Chatsworth often, for it is there that my brother-in-law of the California Highway Patrol rests very close to Officer Sintic. There are several other LAPD sites close by. I grew up in the Valley (circa 1957) and often pass the location where he was shot. When I visit the cemetery I say a special remembrance for all the officers that rest there. Officer Sintic contributed greatly towards the benefit of the City of Los Angeles.
