I have been searching for Eric for the past 20 years to reconnect our friend ship we have since boot camp in the marines. Eric was truly one of the best people I have met.
It sadden my heart to hear such a great person has past away too soon.
I wanted Eric to know what positive impact knowing him for four years we served together.
My youngest son who is now 21 years old name is Harrison Eric Quamily.

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this detective. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.
While many other career choices were certainly available, this detective chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”
Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!

its so sad to see this officer lost his life this way. I'm a big fan of the first 48, I've always been under the impression that officers removed their weapons before entering a interview room with a suspect. if that would of been a rule, detective smith would more then likely still be there. my condolences to his family.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
