I am so sorry to learn of the grievous loss of Officer Evans when he was killed in the line of duty. To the Evans family, fellow officers, and all who call William 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 you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Evans gave to his community and the residents of our country and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 2, 2021
