On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Winston died.

To Winston's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Trooper Martindale gave to his community and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 24, 2013.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Trooper Winston Martindale and the extended law enforcement family of the New York State Police. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.
