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

To the Bunker family, fellow deputies, and all who call Thomas , 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Correctional Officer Bunker gave to his community and the citizens of Michigan and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 17, 2017

I hope everyone will find comfort in Acts 24:15 - "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Until we see our loved ones again on an earthly Paradise, please accept my condolences.

A corrections 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 Otsego County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!
