A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office - Investigative Division. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over four years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

You were lost to this world fighting the good fight and taking into custody, those who deserved to be taken in and gotten off the streets. For that, you are truly a hero, and may your memory live on forever in the hearts and minds of those who know and love you best.

Rest eternally in Peace, Brother and God Bless you and all you've left behind.
