WCO Grove, You are the epitamy of bravery, doing one of the most dangerous jobs a LEO can have. My thoughts and prayers to your family, friends, and fellow WCO brothers and sisters. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten and your service will forever be praised by God. RIP Brother.

To the family and friends of Officer David Grove and his fellow conservation officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when David was tragically killed in such a brutal and senseless murder.

To Officer Grove's family, 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 the Bay 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. To his parents, I share your anquish in losing a beloved child which is surely life's greatest sorrow, and I hold you in my heart's embrace. David will always be honored and revered.

My son was also an organ donor and both his kidney and heart recipient attended the four month trial of the men who murdered my son. Through the years it has been so comforting to know that others live today because of the gift of life organ donation makes possible. How very noble
that your beloved David made this last and most splendid gift of life.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service David gave to his community and the citizens of Pennsylvania as a conservation officer, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on November 11, 2010.

To the family of David Grove, my deepest sympathy. However, Dave's watch on earth may have ended, but he now has a bigger role to perform, which is to watch over the rest of us and protect us. He will be missed by all who knew him, and he will never be forgotten by any of us. May God bless us all.

RIP brother Dave.

May God bless and be with your family, co-workers and friends at this very difficult time.

Dave, words can not express the sorrow I felt when I heard you were officer killed. I will remember the good times we had at the Avenue, Delisio's and Dunlap's. I can not understand why you were taken at such a young age. It just doesn't make sense. Your death will stretch the Thin Blue Line to the breaking point, but to honor you, we will not snap, we will not break. Good bye my friend and until we meet again...

As the parents of a fellow game warden who was killed by a poacher, our hearts go out to your family as another senseless killing has taken one of the best from our Law Enforcement family. There will always remain that giant hole in your heart that only those who have lost a child can seem to understand. Look to those around you as well as your law enforcement family in your time of grief-we are here for you. God be with you in this time of need.

I was proud to be part of the caravan of PGC officers and PSP troopers that escorted Officer Grove's body from Lehigh Valley Hospital to the Gift of Life Foundation in Philadelphia. In the spirit of a true American Hero, Officer Grove was an organ and tissue donor. His final gift will enable many others to heal, and he will live on in the bodies of many grateful people.
Thank you, Pa. State Police, for your support, your top-notch investigation and speedy arrest of the suspect, and your escort to Philly and then home to Adams County.
The real irony in his passing is that he wrote an article for the Pennsylvania Game News, our agency's magazine, entitled "A Shot in the Dark," about an investigation into a night time poaching incident. It was published in the November issue.
My deepest condolences to Officer Grove's family. He has been in my thoughts since I got the dreaded phone call Friday morning. Please know that he died doing something that our unique band of law enforcement professionals is passionate about: Being a guardian for the wild creatures, wilderness, and people that we are sworn by duty to protect.
Rest in peace, brother. I know you will be watching over us out in the woods and on those dark, lonely back roads forever.

To the family, friends and co-workers of Officer David Grove-I wish we didn't have people around like the suspect in this case, whose evil deeds caused such harm and sorrow. I want you to know there are law enforcement Officers across the country who recognize the service of your loved one and will honor him and who also are concerned about you during this tragedy.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, co-workers and dispatchers. A Game/Wildlife Officers job is more dangerous than most people know because most everyone you contact is armed one way or another. Please know that you will be remembered and I thank you for your sacrific for protecting the resources of your state. As a mother of a Trooper & significant other of a Fish & Wildlife Officer (now deceased) and having worked through an Officer involved shooting it takes a toll on everyone. May you rest in peace and know that people care.
