When the heart grieves over what it has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

You will certainly be missed by all, but the heroic accomplishments you made over the past 18 years, and I'm sure you entire 43 years, here on earth, will always be cherished...

My heart goes out to Senior Corporal Norman Smith's family, friends, the Dallas Police Department and especially Norm's wife, Regina.

As I heard the news of Norm's death I was deeply effected because I along with many other police families not only share the love for this profession but the love of a spouse who is also a police officer.

I think as police officers married to police officers we have a profound sense of understanding why our spouses offer themselves to serve the community and an even better understanding of the risks.

Regina, I can think of no other term but Norm and you are "blessed" to have each other.

I could reflect on all the reasons why being a police officer and being married to police officer is the greatest gift to a relationship and the greatest honor to our profession, but you already know all the reasons.

I met Officer Smith once - kind of guy you instantly liked and respected. His Mom and I worked together at the No. 1 BFTS museum in Terrell, TX. Nice family, all wonderful people. Such a terrible loss for his family, friends, brother officers, and community. Rest in peace knowing you were well appreciated.

I know of no words that will suffice. No words that are adequate. I would just like for the family, friends and co-workers of Senior Corporal Norman Smith to know there are folks all across the countryside that are lifting you up in prayer before the Almighty.
May you each experience the eternal love and endless blessings of our Lord and Savior in the coming days. I am so very sorry.

Senior Corporal Smith,

Just as your life and duty affected many people, so has your death. You have made the ultimate sacrifice to make the DFW metroplex and the state of Texas a safer place. Your assignment has changed for now you are in the Lord's Patrol Unit. Look down from your new precinct at your fellow brothers and sisters in blue and keep their backs safe as they protect us.

My heart and prayers go out to you, your family, and all the agencies and citizens that are grieving your passing.

Rest in peace and Godspeed

Sr. Cpl. Smith......I am sorry to hear Texas lost another officer. I am currently in-training preparing to go to the street working for my hometown department. I already know of the risks that can happen too. I hope your family is doing as well as they can right now. My last department I worked for we lost an officer. I feel you co-workers pain and hope they get through it. It will take time though. Rest now brother, we have the watch here.

This was a sad day in the State of Texas. In class today, we watched the funeral services. It brought me to my knees as I tried to stay strong. I pray for the family of the fallen LEO. Crpl. Smith was a hero to many. Although I personally did not know him, I will contribute to his services by eating that butter with my pancake as well. God Speed Sir. You will be terribly missed by the many that thought of you as a True Friend and a True LEO to the State of Texas.
