Dear Chief, and family it is with heartfelt sorrow that I send to you our deepest condolences on the loss of Officer Morimoto. As our Chiefs in the past have said, the loss of a human life is always sad, but not so equally when it involves one who's life was dedicated to public service..May Chad rest in peace
