Continue to rest my brother in a much better place, where you gave your all. May your loving family continue to gain strength for your loss. All of us who were there during those dark days, will one day meet up with you.

To the family and friends of Detective Michael Morales and his fellow officers,

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the loss you suffered when Michael tragically died as a result of his heroism following 9/11. None of our 9/11 heroes will be forgotten.

To Detective Morales' family, my heart goes out to you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and strength in your faith.

I will be riding my bicycle along with several hundred other sworn law enforcement officers from VA to DC May 10th-12th, 2017 with Law Enforcement United ( to celebrate the life, memory and sacrifice of all law enforcement officers that have passed as a result of their actions while in the line of duty.

I am requesting anyone who has the ability to contact any members of Det. Morales' family to please pass on my email address ([email protected]) and have them contact me so that I may explain to them how I plan on memorializing and remembering Det. Michael Morales.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Det. Morales gave to his city and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on June 10, 2009.
