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

To the Dindar family, fellow officers, and all who call Kagan beloved, 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 Detective Dindar gave to his community and the citizens of Tennessee , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 24, 2014.

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,

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Detective Kagan Dinbar:

From the beginning of time after Cain killed his brother, Abel, there has been a need for law enforcement officers to protect the weak and to bring evildoers to justice. This work is necessary in a sinful world and is dangerous. In modern times, some seven police officers and canines have sacrificed their lives to protect the citizens of Clarksville, Tennessee. Today, we honor the sacrifice of Detective Kagan Dinbar, of the Clarksville, Tennessee, Police Department; who suffered a mortal heart attack in the line-of-duty while working a special assignment conducting traffic control for a large event in front of 200 South Third Street in Clarksville, Tennessee. He subsequently died six days later on Saturday, October 24, 2014.

“Lord God, we are grateful for the life of Detective Kagan Dinbar. He died serving us. Help us never to forget. Help us celebrate the life of Detective Kagan Dinbar and honor his sacrifice. Be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

As for the citizens of Clarksville, Tennessee, help them to faithfully equip their law enforcement officers with the best tools to protect their community. May their training be adequate to the task. Help the citizens of Clarksville, Tennessee, to remember to pay their law enforcement officers fairly and treat them with respect. Help the citizens of Clarksville, Tennessee, to obey the law and treat each other with dignity so as not to add to the burden of crime and pain to their community.

The time for mourning will soon pass. We have now remembered and celebrated the life lost in this great tragedy. As the family, friends, and colleagues of Detective Kagan Dinbar go forward, they must celebrate the good things in their lives; and to celebrate life itself!

Finally, Lord God, we pray for the families, friends, and colleagues of all the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty and we thank you for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and colleagues so they might find healing. Help their law enforcement organizations support the families of these fallen heroes. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that their law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they lived and served might be stronger because of their lives and their deaths. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Now, Detective Kagan Dinbar, may the Lord bless you, and keep you: the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

In His Service,
