I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Mike and I meet in the 9th grade. We were each other’s best man at our weddings and he was my inspiration to become a LEO. Mike was a good, kind man who loved his family and serving his community.

I knew Michael well. He was a true friend and respected coworker. He was an excellent officer and a much better person who was always upbeat and positive. He was a person who truly loved his job. He is missed. May he continue to RIP.

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.

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 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 :)
