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

To the Tuder family, fellow officers, and all who call Sean 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 know that that you will 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 Sean gave to his community and the citizens of Alabama and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 20, 2019.
