John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I saw the memorial badge sticker on the back of a car we came into possession of. Thank you for your service. The reflections I read below are incredibly moving and brought me to tears. I pray your family is protected and I know you’re watching over them.

To family and friends of Officer Travis Murphy,

Yesterday I had the privilege of cycling in the Heros Ride out of Conroe, TX. I had the honor of riding with the wrist band of Officer Travis Murphy.

I understand the pain probably never goes away, but I want you all to know that I was riding 75 miles for him and everyone of you. Please know that his memory is alive and we appreciate all he and his fellow officers do for us everyday.

There were moments during the ride which were a bit less than safe, with a lack of shoulders and cars/ trucks speeding by in close quarters. I couldn't help thinking Officer Travis Murphy was perhaps still safely guiding and caring for his fellow citizens, and maybe especially me as I often gazed down at his name on my wristband.

I will forever keep his wristband and my ride number (2222) as a reminder to never forget. Please stay strong.

thank you!

Rest well my hero and thank you for your service to your department. May your family and co-workers gain strength in time for your loss, and that your memory lives forever in all the people whom you have touched. That evil one will one day meet his maker and be judged and go to hell.

I had a chance to stop by your gravesite during this memorial holiday. My kids are finally old enough to understand the sacrifices so many like yourself have given, so I brought them to share in rememberance. I saw there was a fresh red stripe left for you. Drink up my friend, you deserve it. You will not be forgotten, as future generations will be reminded of the sacrifices of those that came before them, who gave all to keep our city safe.

It has been over four years, and I can still remember the phone call I received that day when this tragedy occurred.

I still think about you whenever I think of Officer Ahmetovic and that happens a lot. Your family is always on my mind. I know you are looking down at them and watching over them all the time.

Thank you for the service you provided to the City of Phoenix, I know everyone still misses you and I do too.

It was great to know and work with you. You are a hero and deeply missed. I always talk to about the time we all played basketball together at the church after our shift. Good times. Rest in peace brother we got the watch now.

I think about every shift. I think to myself "what would Travis do" when I respond to calls. The patrol car is so lonely without ya buddy. Your kids are getting so big. Your wife Danielle, is so strong and beautiful, she gives me strength. The 72K squad misses you and your spirit is still with us.
