I extend my sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Daniel was killed.

To the Ellis family, fellow officers, and all who call Daniel 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 Officer Ellis gave to his community and the citizens of Kentucky , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on November 6, 2015.

I have kept up to date on the Officer Ellis since the day he was shot. The day that he passed away my heart was broken for a man I never knew. Even now months later my heart aches for his family and friends. I am so grateful for our men and women in blue who gives their lives to keep us safe. May God Bless all of our men and women in blue. Officer Ellis has impacted my life in ways I can't explained. Thank you Office Ellis.

Officer Ellis, I pray that your family is being comforted by God and has them wrapped in His loving arms.
When I worked at the Seminole County Sheriff's Office in Florida many years ago, a friend of mine was killed in the line of duty and several other deputy friends were injured in the shoot out (On 3rd shift and in the zone I worked as a volunteer Reserve Deputy Sheriff, all are family). I was not on duty that night and I moved to Kentucky when I got the phone call no one ever wants to get but I can tell you that losing one of your own rips a hole in your heart and will always be there. Rest in Peace Brother, you are with God and I know you are with your family.

My heartfelt condolences to Officer Ellis wife, children, family, friends, and colleagues of the Richmond Police Dept. God's word the bible provides some comfort in regards to our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 20:12, 13 reads "I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds." Officer Ellis died doing a good deed, because of this, he is a promised a resurrection. I pray God's promise provides comfort to all who knew Officer Ellis.

Daniel you were a great officer and always did an outstanding job. All of you brothers and sisters here will miss you greatly. Wish I could have talked to you more the week before all of this and wish that the pos that did this would have stayed in jail on my charges so you could still be with us. Just so you know we will not let you down. We will be there for Katie and Luke and will see to it that the suspect never sees the light of day again. Love ya man

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
