Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Brian Timothy Strouse

To Brian and his family,
I am in grief of the death of a good friend today, one who died in the line of duty two days ago, I heard of your ultimate sacrifice, thank you.
I do not have a message, except, I am proud to serve with officers like you. I unfortunately have seen to many fall. No cause seems enough to take the ones who care, the ones like you.
Thank you, for being there to defend those who needed you, thank you for standing when other could not, thank you for your sacrifice.
To the family:
I am sorry for you loss. You should stand proud, but I know that is no comfort. Hold, cry, you survive a hero one, who cared enough and was brave enough to stand and say "Stop!"

The Illinois state flag will be posted and Officer Strouse's name read at our May 14, 2002 Memorial Service.
