My fiance, Dennis McElderry, was the first law enforcement casualty of 2003. Dennis died doing a job he loved, just as I'm sure James did. It saddens me to know that Dennis was not the first to die in the line of duty, nor will he and James be the last to die this way.

Having gone through the pain of losing Dennis I can truly understand and feel the pain that Officer O'Brien's family, friends, and co-workers must be feeling. My heart goes out to you all, especially to his family. No one can truly understand the pain of our loss until they've walked in our shoes. I wish I could give you a few words of wisdom to help you through this tough time, but there isn't anything I can really say or do to make the situation better. Just know that my thoughts are with you.

Please accept my condolences on behalf of the McElderry family and remember that James is part of huge law enforcement family. If you ever need anything any number of them will be there for you (as I've quickly found out!) From reading the many reflections posted here, I am certain James was well respected and well loved.

Thank you for a job well done and for helping to make this world a safer place for us all. Please say "hello" to my fiance Dennis for me.

Peace, Love, Luck, and Happiness!

You began your service to your country as a U. S. Marine, You endured the toughest Boot Camp in the World. You continued that service as a Police Officer, and for this the world is a safer place. You have just received your final orders, and those orders are to guard the streets of Heaven.

Semper Fi, Marine and Thank You for A Job Well Done!

Officer James O'Brien was a wonderful officer and friend. Although it saddens me that I will never get to work with him and see that wonderful smiling face (as he was usually walking out of IHOP!) I know that the heavens will be a much better place with his addition. He was such a mortal blessing here on Earth with us, just think of the wonders he will do watching over us and protecting us as he did serving as a police officer and marine.
He is missed, loved and will never be forgotten.
