To the family, friends and loved ones of Corporal Eric Sutphin and his fellow officers with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department:

On behalf of our family, I wanted to convey our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered with Rric's line of duty death. May you be comforted by your law enforcement family, and other police survivors who have walked the same path you now embark. I do not doubt that Heaven has another hero today, but how I wish it were not your beloved Eric. His valor and courage will be forever remembered and revered. May his memory continue to inspire.

I was horrified to learn of the previous incident in which
Corporal Sutphin was wounded in 2003. His heroism cannot be honored enough as he continuously gave his all.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the fifteen years of distinquished and dedicated service Eric gave to his community and the citizens of Virginia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 21, 2006.

Corporal Sutphin,

The entire law enforcement family has lost one of its finest. I didn't know you, but I know officers like you. Selfless and always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. You did this today in service to the people of Virginia.

Rest In Peace brother Sutphin, your shift is over.

God bless you and your family Corporal Sutphin. Only a few are able to be law enforcement Officers, and you were one of them. We do a tough job, and the worse thing that can happen to any of us, is to lose one of our own. From San Diego CA, my thoughts and prayers go out to Corporal Sutphin and his family.

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the Sutphin family. He will be missed by his family (wife, daughters, and Law Enforcement family). Obviously Corporal Sutphin was an outstanding law enforcement officer and showed unbelieveable courage and dedication from what was left on his bio. Rest well Corporal and we will take it from here and see you in Heaven some day.

On behalf of my family and myself, I wish to extend our deepest sympathy in the loss of Corporal Sutphin. Mere words cannot express the feelings of grief and compassion that is felt for the family and for your department during this time of great sadness. Trooper Barry joins the more than 18,000 officers that have laid down their lives in the performance of their duty since the first known death of a law enforcement officer. These are the true heroes among us.

Please know that you are not suffering alone. Members of the brotherhood have a tear in their eye and feel heaviness in their heart. My family and I mourn alongside you and wish you all a sense of peace and tranquillity in this troubled time.
