I worked with Mike on and off since he joined the force, until I retired. He was always a joyful person to be around. He was positive and helpful. I am a better person for knowing him. God bless and keep you Mike.

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. May you rest in peace and may the lord give peace and strength to your family and to your associates in the law enforcement community.

You are missed Brother! I echo Bob Freeman when I say "You, Mike, were one of the best." And you know I don't echo Bob much!!

I can not tell you how I still miss the sound of "ID 892" in the early morning hours. I am getting ready to ride next week for the Police Unity Tour in your honor. I know, like the day I rode for your funeral mass, you will be with all of us- watching over and protecting us along the way- just like you alway did on the street. I am saddened that we never had the oppertunity to make this ride together. It is and will be an honor to present your family with bracelets I ride with.

I will be riding with your Police Unity Tour bracelet this year in the Unity 2012 ride. I will reflect on your service throughout the ride.
Thank you for your service in the Army and with the US Park Police.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Sergeant Boehm. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.
From reading the reflections left for Micheal he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Michael's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Michael's life was about so much more than the way he died. Michael will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.
Sergeant Boehm, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been nine years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.
Wishing you brighter and better days,
Jocelyne Brar (Winnipeg, MB Canada)

Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as LEO but also when you served in the U.S. Army as well. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. After reading all the reflections left for you from your fellow officers all I can say is that I wish that I had the opportunity and privilege to have worked with you. I remember attending the Border Patrol Academy at FLETC Glynco back in '96 and saw how your officers conducted themselves with pride and professionalism. Your's was the only other Agency besides the Patrol that had formations, uniform inspections, marched and did real PT there.

Rest in Peace Mike. I'm always puzzled why the most noble always leave us the soonest. You were a good classmate and faithful friend while I knew you out here at the SFFO. I carry good memories in the bank. May God Bless your family with the wisdom and patience of your example.
Fair winds and following seas to you Michael Boehm.

"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all...
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savored much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief—
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow."
~An Irish Blessing
Rest in peace Sergeant Boehm. We have the watch.
