Reflections for Detective Matthew Lawrence Tarentino

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

To the Tarentino family, fellow deputies, and all who call Matthew 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 Detective Tarentino gave to his community and the citizens of New Jersey and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 30, 2017.

I hope that everyone will find comfort in the scripture 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 andAnd 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 the unrighteous." Until we see our loved ones again in Paradise on Earth, please accept my condolences.
