To the Families of the Fallen Officers and the Pittsburg Police Department Family~

On Wednesday morning, Sgt. vonKorff and I left Los Angeles enroute to Pittsburg, so we could attend the funeral services for "our" fallen brothers. We were overwhelmed by the greeting and hospitality displayed by the officers from your Department, the Port Authority and the FOP.

We were there to honor YOU and felt that you were there to honor us. Not only were we taken aback by the generosity and kindness that you all displayed, but we were in total awe of the respect and sincerity shown by the citizens of your City.

We travelled across the Country to pay our respect to your officers, their families and your Department for the tremendous loss that you sustained. In doing so, you gave to us MORE than what we brought to you.

On behalf of the Los Angeles Police Department Honor Guard, we offer our sincerest condolences on the loss of three outstanding officers. May you rebound from this tragedy with strength, love and valor.

And keep the faith...because in the end, we'll all be together.

With sadness and gratitude,
Tere Akune, LAPD

Somebody killed a policeman today
and a part of america died..........

A piece of our country he swore to protect
will be buried at his side.

The beat that he walked was a battlefield,too,
Just as if he had gone off to war;

Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half-mast
to his name they will add a gold star.

The suspect that shot him will stand up in court
With counsel demanding his rights,

While a young widowed mother must work for her kids
And spend many long, lonely nights.

Yes sombody killed a policeman today......
Maybe in your town or mine,

While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors
A cop put his life on the line.

Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street,
And he stands at each new rookies side:

He answered the call....of himself and gave his all,
And a part of America died.....

Thank you brother for your bravery and dedication to go and do every day what most won't. We will never forget you as we enter another door at a "another domestic". You forever will be in the back of our minds and deep within our hearts as we continue the good fight. We will honor you and your memory for the rest of time. Rest easy now, we'll take it from here!

St. Michael's Prayer for Police Officers

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil, that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people.

May you rest in peace knowing that others will continue your watch.
Love and appreciation to your loving families.

May your Memory Be Eternal...I will continue to hold you and all those who know you in my thoughts and prayers...time passes on, but time doesn't always heal all wounds...I know your family, friends and co-workers will always remember the laughter and wonderful times they shared with you!

How does one begin to explain the sorrow that I feel for these three fallen heroes? In my 26 year career, I have experienced several deaths of fellow officers. One in particular struck a heart felt cord for me. A Trooper in a neighboring county would often meet with me at the county line during our shifts to "chew the fat" as it were. My good friend and an additional Trooper answered a call eerily similar to the call that these heroes answered and tragically, my friend was cut down in his prime. The additional trooper suffered career ending injuries from gunfire. I remember attending the funeral and speaking with the fallen officer's wife. My heart broke all over again as I listened to stories of how his children were dealing with the loss of their father....also a hero. The good Lord made certain persons to be police officers. They are a special breed, made from a special mold, and filled with the ability to multitask every sort of incident which can be thrown at a mortal man. And we do it without question. A normal person would not do that. But God knew what he was doing when he mixed all of the right ingredients that in time become a dedicated police officer. My heart goes out to the families of these three heroes. As the days go by, I pray that the friendly visits of friends and co workers do not stop. The pain of the loss will never leave the families so please don't let the support fall by the wayside. God Bless you heroes. Only the good Lord knows how many lives they have touched throughout their careers but when they reach heaven, each and every good deed will be counted and I am sure God will hug them, welcome them into heaven and have them rest for all of eternity for they have already served the lord by using the ingredients God used to make them.....Rest in peace friends. God bless the families....Good Bye Heroes!!

Eric, Stephen, and Paul -
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police will never be the same. The loss of three fine officers in one day is without a doubt the hardest thing our department, and our city, has ever had to cope with. I feel so lucky and so proud to be able to say that I served with each of you guys. You are truly heroes. I wish each of you could see the outpouring of support we have received from the community... it has been amazing. You have made a difference in more ways than you could ever imagine. I'm sorry you had to leave us so soon, but we will always be grateful for your service and will never forget the sacrifices that you made to keep this city safe. You will always be remembered.
