Mrs. Kocab,

Please know that as the tragic news was broadcasted over the TV my heart broke for you. I truly felt all of my emotions all over again. July 14th will be 6 months that Chad has been gone, yet it seems like yesterday. Please know that the law enforcement community will take care of you. I pray for you, your daughter and other family members. These senseless tragedies don't have to continue to happen.

I am a born again Christian and believe in Jesus Christ. This is how I am able to get up each morning and begin my day. Chad and I were high school sweethearts and had been married for 12 years. We have 2 sons - CJ age 9 and - Caden age 5. I hope and pray that you have faith in God because this is what gets me through each day.

Psalm 27:1-14 always gave me strength during tough times, but has become a mainstay each morning to help give me the strength I need. Many people will express their condolences and they truly feel for you. Allow people to help - it is good for you and the baby.

Please know that I am only a phone call away or an e-mail away. Not many can say they truly understand the way you feel and mean it, but I unerstand the heartache you feel. As time passes, the ache remains, but it does begin to get easier. If there is anything I can ever do, please do not hesitate to contact me.

With sincere love and prayers,

RIP brother. May God comfort your family and friends during this tragic time. May God also shed light on where this coward is hiding.

We have never met, but I know you. I know the way you put on the uniform. The way you prepare for another shift. The way you say good bye to your family and pray you can get home to say hello. The way you put yourself in harms way for the citizens you swore to protect. At times without so much as a thank you. The way you watch over your fellow officers. The way you muster up enough strengh on those crazy days so you can go to the next call and do it all over again. The pride you feel when all of your hard work pays off. The way you deal with the stress of this profession. The way you feel when you finally get home to your family. To the hugs and kisses as they ask "how was your day".
My brother we have never met.........but I know you! Thank you for being a HERO. May the good lord watch over your family and keep them safe.
