Reflections for Sergeant Andrew Francis Tingwall

A hole remains where you once stood and an echo where you once spoke. You remain the standard that we are all measured against. You were what we are all supposed to be and you are missed my brother.

On today, the 11th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Ting, you are the true definition of "Pro Bono Publico!" You lived and gave your life for the good of the public. It was an honor to have known you. I will never forget that voice that came calling at 05:30 for P.T. I will always be proud to have donned the Black & Gray. God speed Sgt.

I didn't know you even half as well as many others did but every time we met I respected you more or more. The first thing out of your mouth was always "Do you need me to go 10-8? Just say where". Never in my entire life have I met someone so dedicated yet so humble. You are what every New Mexico State Police officer strives to be and we miss you each and every day.

You will never be forgotten.

Sir Yes Sir, you have not been forgotten.. This past christmas I took a moment to thank you once again for giving your last breath living and doing what you strongly believed in. As I hung up my very first NMSP christmas ornament you gave me it brought tears to my eyes and pain in my heart and made me realize just how much we I miss you..

Live Strong Live free fly high....
