Dear Arthur Lopez, You were an amazing guy, and a very brave man. You were also a good human being, your heart was filled with love, kindness and goodness, that reflected it your face, eyes and in your smile. I realized this in the short minutes that I met you. Guys like you are very few. God Bless You, Hero Officer, and be in God's Glory. I will always remember you Hero.

Your work is done here on Earth - Heaven has called upon you today, leaving so many words left to say. But now it's too late, for your time has come, words unspoken; I am sure everybody has some. Regrets and wishes are probably there too, but lasting forever are memories of you.
There have been many times that we waved to each other, but we were there for each other in time of need. Now it's time for us to say Good-Bye, until we meet again in heaven to fly. Now go and Patrol the Heavens Above and Watch Below those you Love. Thank you for your service.

You awoke that faithful day as so many of us have and donned a uniform to protect the public we serve ....but in your path that day came a man of subhuman character and in a senseless act took your young life. Rest in peace brother!

My heart goes out to the Lopez family and the Nassau County PD, for they have lost two officers in one month!
Maybe now that this offender has committed the ultimate offense will he stay behind bars where he should have been in the first place. If we could only keep violent offenders locked up, what a safer and peaceful country we would live in.
God Bless you Arthur, and may the peace of heaven be with you.

It matters not what patch is stitched to your sleeve, or what shield is pinned to your chest... It matters only that you wore both, and did so with honor. When an Officer is lost, every member of the Law Enforcement community feels the pain...

Many prayers and uplifting thoughts are en-route from my family to yours, to include every member of the NCPD...

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God." Matthew 5:9

Rest in eternal peace, PO Lopez...

My heart weeps for the family, friends and brother and sister officers of this fine, honorable officer. Would to God that he would instill in the hearts and minds of those you served the understanding of what it takes to do what cops do. The Bible states, "There is no greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for a friend". What about that man who gives his life for others that he never knew. Officers all over this counrty willingly place themselves in harms way so that others (strangers) may live safe and peaceful lives. I heard a saying today I will share. "Yesterday is what we call history. Tomorrow is what we call the future. Today is a gift from God, thats why we call it "THE PRESENT". No man is promised a second longer than that second that he is living now. Knowing this, every officer in this counrty will stand and fight for those who can't fight themselves. Officers will be the thin blue line that divides the good from the evil. Officer Lopez, your sacrafice will not be in vein. I pray that your brother and sister officers will gain strength and courage from the memories they have of you. I pray that those you served will count the cost that was paid to ensure the peace they enjoy.
