My sincere condolences to Deputy Hill’s family and friends both blood and blue. In a couple days I’ll be riding my bicycle nearly 300 miles from NJ to Washington DC with Law Enforcement United to honor Deputy Hill’s life and sacrifice. It has been one of my greatest honors to have met some of your closest friends who consider you family. I ride for them as well as they continue to heal from your passing. On your wings Deputy Hill... you are a true hero and you will not be forgotten.

I hope that everyone can 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 see him again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

Deepest condolences to Family, Department and Friends. Visit the web site 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 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 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.

Davis, Marisa

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.
