My condolences to Ricky's family and the Sheriff's Office on the anniversary of Ricky's tragic murder.

I miss Ricky every day when I do not see him in briefing. When my job takes me back to the coast where Ricky served the community I miss seeing him in the office joking with him, and talking about hunting. Your laugh was memorable, your heart was tremendous. You were my brother then and you are my brother now.. Love and miss you.

PS. Timmy is doing great and making you proud..

We had our LEO memorial in Bellefonte PA this evening. In 17 years of attending memorials, your name is the first on the roll call that I knew. I think of you often now, unfortunately it is because of this tragedy that I found out that you were the ultimate example of Col. Grossman's sheepdog reference. Rest easy, Ricky. Your legacy will live on forever in future generations of sheepdogs.

I knew Rick from back in the mid 1980's. Rick and I worked together at Mervyns as store Detectives in Napa. He saved me many times fighting with thieves using those unbeatable wrestling skills. We both got into Law enforcement at the same time, Rick was a great guy, none better. He was one of those people you never forget. A mountain of a man yet very humble. The world lost a good man the day he died. I miss you Rick and will see you again in Heaven . I will find you by your laugh. Good bye my friend.

Merry Christmas Ricky. Sorry I am a little late getting here. I heard your song on the radio today and it reminded me to get get my butt on here. Not a day goes by without thinking of you. CALTRANS got your sign put up on 101, hopefully the people of Mendo county have more respect than the jerks in Oakland that vandalized the 4 OPD officers sign. Rest easy my friend.

He went to work that day and did not know
This shift he served would bring such sorrow
This call to duty would be his last
His time on earth is now his past
God set this day as his time to go
Rest in peace Deputy Del Fiorentino, now a hero
He gave the ultimate sacrifice
With integrity and pride he paid the price
His family, friends and colleagues will mourn
As an angel in heaven he is now reborn
His golden heart stopped beating
Hardworking hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the very best.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Ricky was killed.

To the Del Fiorentino family, fellow deputies, and all who call Ricky beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Del Fiorentino gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 19, 2014.
