Dear Officer Miktarian:

I never met you, but I have tears for you, your pretty wife and happy baby. What can you say that will be enough knowing that you are no longer here with us?

I never met you, but I know that you were a special kind of person because you were a police officer. There are very few careers that are as important because you were a stalwart between law-abiding citizenry and the down-right demonic. Judges are not even as important because police officers like you risk their lives to bring the worst of society to them.

I wish I was blessed to touch your hands, to see your beautiful smile, to feel safer knowing that you are on my side. I beg God to look out for you, for you wife and your baby, and to reward you with the greatness that you, as a police officer, deserve.

God bless you, Officer Miktarian. Rest in piece.

There are no magical words to use to help ease the pain of those that miss you dearly. The only thing I can suggest is that those that love him and his friends and Blue Family Members, keep his memory alive for he is a true hero. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones and those still out on patrol. You will never be forgotten.

I was in the academy when this happened. My daughter is going to be four and every time I go out on duty every shift Josh crosses my mind, and I never even met him. Rest easy brother.

I often find myself thinking about you. Even though I never had the chance to meet you, i could tell that you were a great man. You were the example of what a great police officer is, and you are greatly missed. My heart broke for holly and thea when i heard of your death. I have always wanted to be a police officer and after your death it just made it more clear that, that is what i wanted to do. You honor will live on forever, and your name will never fade. In our hearts and in our prayers. R.I.P brother.

I am African American and live in Twinsburg. Race DIDNOT play a part in this horrific crime. Officer Josh as always been very protective and nice to me and my family. he would always ride by and wave to my children. Holly always was nice to my elderly parents who live in Oakwood where she was a cop. When i heard the news i cried for Holly because as a mother i knew she had to be experiencing undescribeable pain for her daughter. I am glad he received the death penalty and hope he is executed quickly. RIP Officer Miktarian you completed a good job on earth but God saw fit to use you in his heavenly world. Only angels belong in heaven and you are a direct fit for where u are at this moment in time!!!!

I pray for your family often Officer Miktarian, and especially today on the anniversary of your passing.

My son is in the military and has been to war and back.

It's a war everyday somewhere on our streets here in
the USA. I don't take for granted that there are brave men
and women who step up and make it their life mission
to protect others.

My heartfelt ~Thanks~ to you and ALL those who

Josh, Hard to Believe it has been over two years. You became the topic of discussion the other day in the studio with Nick and Rusty. It all started with looking at the full size carboard posters of Toni Iommi and Zack Wylde that you had that are proudly hanging up above us on the wall. Its a nice reminder that everytime myself or any of us go in there, it gives us the reminder of you and who you were as a person. We were having some beers (as always) and it never fails some funny story comes up from the old "Barium" days. Nick,Jon,Pat and I have been jammin some of your guys old tunes, its been a lot of fun! I feel honored getting to drum to them with those guys. They really miss you, but they always keep a high head, and always reflect on the good times. We will start picking it back up here soon when things slow down for everybody again.Its just a fun thing to do for now, who knows what will go down with it in the future. Me and the guys are planning to stop by and see you soon,and we'll have a cold PBR for you as always! Take care partner! cheers!
