There are no words to console your grief over the loss of Sgt. Kinterknecht in the performance of his duties. As senseless and tragic the loss, there is consolation that he did not die in vain. For as a peacekeeper making a difference one life at a time, maintaining the public order in the fabric of society, others were able to sleep peacefully in their beds at night and the weak had a champion. There is sometimes little thanks or appreciation for being the thin blue line between chaos and anarchy and a civilized symmetry, but we owe a debt of gratitude for those who lay their lives at the altar of freedom and liberty each and every day. Sgt. Kinterknecht, thank you for your sacrifice and rest in peace. Blessings on your family and co-workers.

"We Remember the Officers"

We remember the officers who changed our lives,
The men and woman who protected us day and night,
People who respect for their dedication to the cause,
For when faced with danger, they never even pause.

We remember the officers who always stood true,
Whatever the color of uniform, brown gray or blue,
With pride and integrity they say "To serve and protect",
For the giving of their life, we offer our respect.

We remember the officers who we never really knew,
Persons strong enough to answer the challenge are few,
With heavy hearts we mourn the officers in eternal rest,
There's more to these people than the badge on their chest.

By Brad Miller

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Sergeant Kinterknecht and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever.

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Kinterknecht, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Sergeant Kinterknecht is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
