I never met you or your family. Your mom has left a reflection on a good friend of mines page (Kyle pagerly) and it has brought me to yours. I just wanted to say thank you for your service and your sacrifice. God bless you and your family brother!

Eight years!. Eight years is a long time to be separated from someone so loved. Yesterday we were overwhelmed by those sending us cards, texts, messages, emails, calls remembering you. It warms our hearts. You are not forgotten. You are so deeply missed. I often wonder where you'd be, what you'd be doing today. You had so many goals, so much enthusiasm to learn, help others, and live life. I don't think this pain in my heart will ever go away. I try to live your motto left behind: Stay strong, Stay safe, Stay positive. Love always, mom

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.

Not one day goes by without thinking of you and missing you. It is so hard to believe that soon it will be five years. It often feels as if my world has stood still since that day. Love you, miss you.

Honoring all our Veterans on Veterans Day. The 511th MP CO. Thinking of how you made it back from Afghanistan and Iraq. How you surprised me one Christmas home for a week leave from Iraq. Missing you! Missing our hero. Not a day goes by I don't think of you. Love you always

I'm a Birkoltz, have quite a bit of extended military family, and an inactive sworn Corrections officer that has experience with sensory overload, the dangers of it, this just made me ill, my prayers and hope in fidelity to the family.

In hope, prayer, and honor that your memory and legacy continue.
