To the family of Officer Simmons,

My heart grieves with your family today. In February 1994, LAPD Officer Christy Hamilton, my aunt and my hero, was shot and killed responding to a domestic disturbance call. She died at Northridge Hospital. There are no words to describe what your family is experiencing, but please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many.

May God watch over us all.
