God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

Sgt. Joe Schuengel you sir made the ultimate sacrifice and are a true hero. You obviously protected the citizens you served right to your last moment. The citizens will never forget that sacrifice.
You brothers and sisters in blue will move on, but that will be a hard task.

I first want thank everyone who has posted and the sincere support shown to our agency. Joe made me a better person and Trooper. For some reason during defensive tactics training he always found me for demonstrations, but like I said, he made me a better person and Trooper. I showed my daughter his photograph in the newspaper after this tragedy and she said, he brought the helicopter to my career day at school and I got my picture taken in his helicopter. She asked me if she could take the photograph to school, show her classmates and talk with them about it. Joe has made a lasting impression on me and my family.

His family is in our prayers and will be supported by the MISSOURI BLUE.

Joe my brother in blue, I am proud to have served with you.

While in class on 10/15/2010 we heard the saddened news. A brother in blue had passed away. The news was presented in a classroom that was likewise all to familiar to you. We're walking in your shoes day in, day out, learning what you loved to do.

Several instructors commented on the Trooper and person you were. One Trooper told another Recruit a story about you. He said, "If you needed two dollars and Joe only had one, he would borrow the other dollar from another to give you." That story painted a picture of the man you were. I hope that the whole class will be able to measure up to what you were.

The sad news hit us especially hard due to the fact that we are in the process that you once went through and for what we are inspiring to be. Thank you so much for all you do. You will live on forever as the person you are and the good deeds you did.

-Rest in Peace Brother-
