Officer Fairbanks
Rest in peace Sister, thank you for your service.

Officer Fairbanks Family
Your complete family are in my families prayers during this dark time. My family is just starting to make it thru a lost of our own with the death of my future son in-law Josh Norris. Kristine was taken to early and should of had more time with you guys. I know words at this time will never stop the hurt, but know your Wife and Mom is not far from you, she is the whisper in the wind, that feeling of being hugged when no one is there, she will always be at your side watching over ever accomplishment and catching ever tear that you guys shed. What has helped my family and may help yours, remember your love ones laugh, her smile and all those things that are unique to her, since they are truly what made her. She is a true hero in every sense of the word and your police family extends it arms to you, if this one from Louisiana can do anything do not hesitate to ask. God bless you and may he give you strength.

My sincerest condolences to the family, friends, co-workers, and so many others who had the fortune to know and become acquainted with this officer, unfortunately, I did not have this honor, and am now less for it.

I also would like to express my condolences to someone who was probably closer to her than we are to most, and that would be her K-9 partner who I'm afraid doesn't know what's happening.

Please take care all who do similar work and may your family fine peace with your spirit.

Thank you for your dedication and service.
