It's already 18 months since Brian has passed and it still feels like the other day. Brian was an amazing friend, husband, father and Trooper. He will never be forgotten and his spirit will live on. I miss my good friend but I know that he is with God and all who have fallen. May you rest in peace and I will never forget the wonderful college days from SUNY Cobleskill to SUNY Plattsburgh. Love and miss you brother! RD

I pray that everyone will find comfort in Revelation 21:4, where it says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Until we can see all of our loved ones again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

Your heroism and service is honored today. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace and strength for everyone who misses and loves Brian . We will never forget the sacrifice made by each of the 9/11 heroes and their families.

Thank you so much Trooper Falb for your assistance on that awful day that took so many lives. And on the other hand a day that many lives were saved because of heroes like yourself. Your life along with many others that assisted on that day has been cut short and thats a terrible thing. I dont think that any of you that have passed due to this day would change anything that you all did on 9/11. May you watch over all of your family and friends from above and let your Brothers and Sisters take it from here.

Rest in peace my brother.Lord,please bring comfort to his family in their time of need, and all the rest of their lives. I remember the state troopers who were there ,who came to NYC to help us. So many were sent to the city, away from home and family, to help in the recovery. I met a few guys who were sent from the Canadian border area to help us. I remember thinking how far they had driven to get there. I thank you for what you did. You may have been responding to a National crisis, but, the truth of it, you were really responding to a call of "OFFICER NEEDS ASSISTANCE". I thank you for answering that call, for answering MY call. Kevin Ford NYPD (Ret)

Rest In Peace brother all of us who responded to that tragic terrorist attack will meet up again

Police officer Maria Imburgia

April 3, 2017

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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.”

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.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Brian's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Trooper Brian S. Falb, and the extended law enforcement family New York State Police, New York. 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.

By Jon F. Hooper

A portion of a letter written by President Abraham Lincoln, printed in the Boston Evening Transcript on November 25, 1864.

“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”
