To Officer Derek Kotecki's Family;

My heart has grown very heavy this night as I read how
your Loved One, Officer Kotecki has been gunned down.

He gave his life to protect others, his loving K-9 Odin loyally guarding his best friend. I weep as I think of his wife and children left here to suffer the pain that noone ever wants to suffer.

My daughter is a Philadelphia Policewoman and I fear every day and night for her life. She is my heart of hearts and I cannot imaging losing her.

Please know that I am thinking of you and everyone that has loved Officer Kotecki, May God Keep him forever in his loving care. Bless you all !
Deborah Doyle, Mother of a Policewman, Phila. 15th district, and myself, Ex-Court Officer for city of phila.
