Reflections for Senior Corporal Norman Stephen Allen Smith

To the family and friends of Sr. Corporal Norman Smith and the members of the Dallas Police Dept.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you have suffered when Norman was brutally murdered.

To Regina and children and to all in his family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son Larry was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

In reading his reflections, I can see that Norman was an amazing man who will be missed by so many. His department has also suffered another great loss and once again are grieving for another member of their police family.

Norman's memory will always be honored and revered.
I also pray for the full measure of justice that Norman, his family and friends, and his department deserve.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service Norman gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 6, 2009.

It fills me with anger and frustration that we lose another brother officer to senseless gang violence. I hope and pray that his family finds peace in their time of sorrow, and that his fellow brothers and sisters can learn from this experience and continue to serve their community with their heads held high. Im glad that the person responsible can do no more harm to anyone. Rest in peace.

I check the ODM page everyday even though I know no police officers. I check it because I care and I appreciate all the sacrifices these officers make for total strangers. My heart goes out to Officer Smith's family and to the Dallas Police Dept. I am so sorry for your loss. I saw Officer Smith's photo/dedication tonight on a DVR recorded old episode of 48 hours. I feel like I know some of the homicide detectives from watching this show all the time. My sincere sympathy to all of you for your loss and thank you for putting his picture on the screen tonight. Please know many citizens care and appreciate all you do.
