On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Zack was killed in the line of duty as he attempted to aid James, his friend and fellow officer. He was so brave and so selfless.

To the Moak family, fellow officers, and all who call Zack 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. I hope that as the first anniversary of your loved one's untimely death approaches, that you continue to receive that same kind of 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 Corporal Moak gave to his community and the citizens of Mississippi and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 29, 2018.
