The United States Park Police has lost a family member, but I have lost a mentor. You were the first person to guide me out of field training, and your lessons have made me the officer I am today. "The Creek" will miss you!

May eternal rest you grant onto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithfully departed, rest in peace.

You are loved and missed!

My son Jared who is a USPP Officer and I were talking about Sgt. Boehm and the kind of leadership he exibited and the personal loss that he felt as he was present with his trainee when Sgt. Boehm was transported to the Hospital. I think the best thing I did was listen to my son express admiration and respect for this very fine man and guifted Police Supervisor.

Mike,

You were a great mentor, leader, and friend. When I was a rookie cop in D-1, you always had time to answer questions, give guidance, and try to keep us new guys out of trouble. You trained me on the mountain bikes, helped me with all that confusing DC court paperwork, and helped me work through interviews in my first gun case. I still have that picture of you and me coming across the finish line at that police mountain bike race raising our hands in triumph despite being in near last place. I can’t look at that without smiling and thinking back to some good times. It was an honor to work with you and you will be missed. Thank you for everything you did for me and for your service to our country. Rest in peace brother.

Our hearts are heavy, our memories are full and our spirits are lifted.....knowing that Mike is now in God's eternal embrace. Knowing that he will be watching over us as you have always done.

Mike ALWAYS took care of his troops and guided them in the right direction. I had the privledge of working with him on various Details and will always remember his kind words and perspectives. He was the kind of cop we would like to emulate.

To his son,
Please know that your dad was loved by everyone. That his integrity, his love and his passion could never be questioned. Know that he treated everyone as he wanted to be treated - even the bad guys respected him. As it is forever inscribed on the Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial, ""It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived."

Until we meet again my brother.....

The following is an untitled poem by an anonymous author. It is a poem that never fails to spark a memory and a tear. It was read at my father's funeral - Retired NYPD Officer Lawrence V. Monahan. Like Mike he was a great Dad who left us way too early.


Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
