Deepest condolences to Family, Department and Friends. Visit the web site ImagineHeaven.net for a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting. All law enforcement men and women indeed qualify as "Foxhole Christians" with their duty dangers. As Ray Comfort at LivingWater.com says "Passing is the doormat they wipe their feet on before entering Heaven.” It is our belief they will hear from the Lord Himself. “Do not fear. for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:12).

I live in York, PA and felt like I had to extend hopes that the family, friends and colleagues of Deputy U.S. Marshal Hill would be able to find some peace with his loss. His loss is a hard one for the community he served.

I am currently a recruit for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (Class 429). First off, I want to send my prayers and condolences to friends and family. Losing someone is never easy. From experience, it never gets easier, but you learn to cope and remember the good times. The day this occurred, it was my birthday. However, I wasn’t celebrating. I was with my husband at hospital because he was recovering from a major accident. In a matter of moments, things can change your entire life. Hence, I am sadden by the this incident because no one deserves to be taken away from their loved ones. You were a guardian when you were here, and now you are a guardian from above. You are a hero to many, and an inspiration to me. You will always be remembered.

For Deputy US Marshal Christopher D. Hill:
Our duty in law-enforcement, as with those in the military, has it's inherent hazards. We accept the risk, but strive constantly to remain unhurt or even killed in the line-of-duty while performing the tasks placed before us. Our obligation to protect others and preserve the peace sometimes comes with a price. More times than not it is through sacrifice of much our time and that of our family. It is the desire of every officer to continue until retirement while remaining safe and keeping our fellow officer's safe. We rarely fail. Fate has a way of stepping-in and reminding us that we face death at any moment we are on duty. It does no make it easier. When the worst happens we come together, grieve, help those who share our lot, and continue on while remembering those who've left us as heroes and perpetuate their memory by honoring them as true soldiers-of-the-law. Deputy US Marshall Hill has obtain that status and we regret that it had to be so. Sadly, he will not be the last. Our commitment is to serve honorably, faithfully and be ready to ensure that he, and so many other heroes before him, have not died in vain.
We proudly render US Deputy Marshall Christoper D. Hill a final salute.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Christopher was killed.

To the Hill family, fellow marshals , and all who call Christopher 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Marshall Hill gave to his community and the citizens of Pennsylvania and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 18th, 2018.

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,

May God watch over the Family and Fellow Officers that put their lives on the line for us everyday. We all lose when one of these heroes fall. And this one was a terrible loss. A man who without care for his own safety did such a noble thing. I hope his family will find some type of peace during this time of mourning. God will not let them down. Keep Faith and know he is in a better place.

"A Part of America Died"

Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.

The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.

The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.

Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.

Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.
