Dear the Kinterknecht family. While I did not know David in life his lose is still felt, and it always will be. Sergeant Kinterknecht is a name every officer knows here, and is spoken of in difficulty because of it, but he is still remembered and still honored, as he always will be.

It has been nearly ten years since his sacrifice and it is still inexpressible the hole left by his death in the community. He did not leave in vain, Sergeant Kinterknecht even with his death served and protected the community, for that we are all grateful to bottom of our hearts.

He is the truest hero, acting with bravery and courage in defense of others. That is an act that takes a very special type of person.

Know he will not been forgotten, and never will be.

There is not a day that goes by that I wish I could pick up the phone and call my best friend. Everything I do in life, I do to make you proud. From graduating high school with a 4.0 to choosing my career in college. During rodeo I ride for you and strive to be the best I can be.
To this day I remember seeing you at the fair, hours before your life was taken. Your big blue eyes had that loving twinkle. You always looked so handsome in your uniform.
Anyone who knew you was blessed. To have had you as my father was the best thing a little girl could have in life. Now that you are my guardian angel, I know I am always protected.

Hi Babe, I can't believe that it has been four years. I still miss you and love you dearly! I miss everything about you but I think what I miss the most is our conversations and the dreams we use to share with each other. It doesn't seem like it has been four years since you held me in your arms because I can still feel your arms around me. I love you my sweet husband.

Sgt K,
I had the opportunity to meet you and learn from you when I attended the academy in Delta. A few of my classmates and friends now work with MPD and were present the night you were taken from us. I want to thank you for the time you pulled me aside and went out of your way to help me. You didn't have to do that but you were a great instructor and went above and beyond what was expected of you. I am now a detention supervisor and instructor with a great agency. I know I would not be where I am today without you. Thank you for your brave and honorable service. You have not been forgotten. You will never be forgotten. You have earned your wings. Rest easy my brother.

Hi is so hard to believe that it has been 3 years today. I have missed you so much since you were called home. Thank you for always being with me when I needed you, especially this accident with PJ and him being in the hospital so long. I know when he fell from the cliff at yours and my waterfall that you were with us as we worked to save his life. You were the best stepfather, father, grandfather, husband and friend ever and still are an inspiration to all of us. I love you my sweet husband.
