Reflections for Trooper Marc Kenneth Castellano


Unbelievable...the similarities of Trooper Castellano and the officer that we just recently lost. Two young men protecting and serving (going after "the bad guy"), leaving behind, after only 29 years of life, their wives and two children. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss.

Your move to God's department was not expected by your brothers and sisters here. Your new partners and comrades are all also honorable and loving brothers and sisters in the badge and have all given the ultimate in service to God's children in their communities as you did. Your record of honor, service, devotion and integrity will keep your name in the forefront of all your brothers and sisters left behind and they will care for your family. Your name will never be forgotten and your love of duty will stand as a guide line for those coming after. Rest in peace brother. In Christ.

To the Castellano Family,

I was so saddened to get this call yesterday. My brother was Trooper Bertram T. Zimmerman III #5853. We are praying for your family, friends, and coworkers. I belong to a group called "The Survivors of the Triangle." This is a great organization. We will help you get through this tragic ordeal. They helped me and my family. If it wasn't for them and C.O.P.S., I don't know where I would be today. My family and I will be there for you always in any way we can. Marc's life will never be forgotten!! We will be there for you in Washington, D.C. next year when he is honored for making the ultimate sacrifice. We will not let you walk alone.

A POLICE OFFICER’S PRAYER:--- O, gentle Lord ! Keep the day/night watch with me. As I begin my tour of duty, I ask your protection from all mental, physical and spiritual harm. Sustain me with the knowledge that I am doing your work, endeavoring to keep peace among your people. Help me to be just as I enforce the law without prejudice or favor to anyone. May I be courageous but not reckless in carrying out my duties. Let me respond to all calls with haste realizing that so many are dependent upon me for life and safety. Support me with your consoling power when I am tempted to think no one really cares and that I am taken for granted. Sustain in me the conviction that so many thousands do care and are grateful for my presence. Grant that I may be loyal to my partner and my fellow officers, and that I may back them up effectively when called upon for assistance. Lord, I ask that I may return safely, after my tour of duty, to my loved ones and those who love me. I pray that I may be a good and honorable police officer; and after my tour of duty is over here on earth, may I enjoy the peace and happiness of heaven that you have promised to those who serve you well. AMEN. *** REST IN PEACE ***

My thoughts and prayers go out to Marc Castellano Family.

June 7, 2010

First I would like to say R.I.P. Marc. For all of you people who dont know Marc, he was THE NICEST man I have ever met in my life. I am only 15 years old and haven't even met a lot of people in my life yet, but that will forever stay the strongest thought in my mind. I have known his wife since the day I was born, she was like a sister to me, and all of Marc's other in-laws (The Carloni Family) I could basically say were my everyday family. Yes I do love all the fiances of this family (The 3 Carloni Kids), but the first one was the most important to me. And that was Marc Castellano, a truly amazing man. I can say I have so many memories of him and I, and truly everyone in that family. But, that would take years to explain how those times of my life were the best and how Marc basically is the defintion of a true hero. Now I type this today to let Marc's wife know, and his two children whom I love very much, that everything will be okay. May you rest in peace forever Marc. It shouldn't have been you to go. Once again, the strongest, most big hearted, most caring, and most non-selfish individual someone can know. I love you Marc and will miss you.

Love, Bud.

Good Friend.

My heart breaks for your family as I too lost someone I love (my first husband) in the line of duty when he was struck by a tractor trailer while on a traffic stop. I pray the Lord will wrap his loving arms around your family & carry them through all of their days without you. My prayers are with your family, friends & co-workers.
