Officer Schultz, thank you so much for taking care of us and protecting us. You will be missed. We counted 537 police vehicles as they passed by our home in Merrillville. It is obvious many others will miss you too. A great tribute to a good man.

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
Psalms 37:39-40
Rest in peace brother.

To the Schultz family, you have our deepest condolences and our prayers. Nick was one of the nicest young men you could ever meet. We met him when he came on the Merrillville PD and he did the traffic control for our Saturday evening Mass. He always had a smile and was very respectful to us. He was a great asset to Merrillville and is greatly missed. Nick gave his life for us, and his Brothers that night, and also gave life to seven people by being an organ donor. Nick and the Schultz family will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you Nick and God Bless.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln
