Reflections for Patrolman Harry Marvin "Marty" Steinfeldt, III

In times like these there are plenty of speechless moments, tears, sorrow, emptiness, but there is plenty of words of hate etc.....towards those whom would do such a terrible thing to another.
I never new Marty other than he and I were on the same df2 squad and we spoke on ICQ (on the internet). I still feel a tremendous loss, but none like that for whom really knew him, my heart, sorrow, prayers goes out to his loved ones, and his fellow brothers there in Texas who served along side of him.
Man........this really sucks, I wish I could say something to make it better...but unfortunately that isn't possible.
I always tell everyone time is a healer, that my friends is the truth no matter how hard or harsh it may sound. We at ~TSO~ his online family of df2 we are in the process of setting up a fund for in his memory for his family. It's the least we can do for his family, I am not certain if anyone from our squad has spoke with anyone, visit our site (public forums) and there you can enter the Topic advising everyone of this great loss to the world n you could let us know through that where the donations can be sent....
Thank you and once again I/we are very very sorry to hear this... he may of not been in the marines but semper fi my brother, rest in peace.

To Martys wife and unborn son/daughter. I know not what to say but My family and I and all Marty's friends will be praying for the strength for you to get thru this.
GOD BLESS

We meet on the internet and shared our love of family, police work and gaming on the computer. This is a tragedy and you will be missed. My family prays for your family and the members of your department. We never had the chance meet in real life but I know we all met again someday brother.

Rest in peace brother your work is done.

I am deeply saddened by another fine officer gunned down in the line of duty. This tragic incident just displays once again that a cops life is over in any given minute while doing his job.
I am very proud to call you a brother and myself along with all other brother and sister police officers in this great country mourn the loss of your life by criminal activity that is senseless and wrong.
The world was a better place because you were here brother Steinfelt. God will look after your wife and unborn child due to the sacifice you made to make this a better place to live for all people.
May God reward you greatly. Sr.Cst C.Murray # 11160

My father, Charlie Keele, is an Ennis Police Officer. He contacted me to advise me of this grave incident. Myself, as well as all of the officers in this agency and in Galveston County wish to extend our deepest condolences to the family, the officers, and the community of Ferris for the tragic and senseless murder of Marty Steinfeldt III.
Our hearts are heavy, and our resolve has grown!

Senior Patrol Sgt. Tracy Keele
Dickinson Police Dept

My heartfelt sympathy goes to this family because of this tragedy. When will it all stop!!! These evil people are taking far too many innocent lives of our officers. When my son Officer Joey Vincent was shot and killed in 1999, the murderer also took the life of Joey's pregnant wife, along with the life of my sister and her husband. I am still grieving for them and hate to see other families have to go through this. May this family have comfort in knowing there are those of us out there that care and are praying for them.

Officer Steinfeldt, you are a true hero, may God bless you and your family, you truly made a difference, while you were here.

A Silent Prayer
Every night I sit alone and pray a silent prayer,and when I'm sleeping late at night have dreams I cannot bear.
Lord keep him safe from any harm as he helps those in need,
and puts his life on the line, a hero yes indeed.
I know his job is hard at times not knowing what to do,
when dispatch calls with a man down in his brotherhood of blue.
A fallen angel was buried last week on a glum and sorrowful day,all because a public sevant has a price to pay.
A routine check is what they said the night he lost his life, but nothing seemed routine at all for his children and his wife.
So send your wish to heaven tonight and hope that it comes true, please remember the prayers of an officers wife and the trials that she braves too.


Rest in peace now brother, we have your watch.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss! I was also pregnant at the time that my husband joined the many heroes of our country. You and your family will remain in my prayers. I found my strength in those who helped me to survive such a horrible time, including my husband and my unborn son. I hope you find your source of strength. If you would ever like to talk to a fellow survivor you can contact me. I will be more than happy to talk with you. Remember your husband will always, always be with you and your son. He may not be on this earth with you any longer, but there he would never leave you and his child alone.
