One of Arizona's finest, living their dream and was killed doing what he loved. Tyler Edenhofer may not be here, but will never be forgotten. He will forever live in the spirit of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The world is a small place. The bond of the L.E. family makes it even smaller. Had the pleasure to meet someone very close to you, who made me aware of your memory. Rest well, Brother.

Trooper Edenhofer, we have never met and we wont ever get the chance to. At the time of your passing, and as I write this, I am a young man who shares the same dream as you. Protecting and serving your community. My heart breaks as I read these reflections and to see how much the community appreciated and respected your sacrifice. You are an American hero and will always be remembered as such. I can't help but feel the pain knowing that you were a young man who shared the same dream as me, being an officer, being a role model, being a light in your community. I hope that I get the opportunity to serve my country in the same capacity as you, With pride and my head held high knowing that every night when I go to bed, I can sleep soundly knowing that I left the world a little better of a place then it was when I went out on shift. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Trooper Edenhofer,

It has been 100 days since you were taken away from us. You live on in so many minds each and every day. Like a lot of folks I think of you when a State Trooper passes by and the thought "keep them safe" goes through my head.
I am writing a piece for my 15 string bass guitar with you in mind. As your passing is still so recent there are thoughts that take time to fully appreciate.
Thank you for being one outstanding individual and a true inspiration.

Reading about Trooper Edenhofer still brings tears to my eyes. Peace and love to all of the good guys out there... especially those who seem to have moved on way too soon.

My deepest condolences to his mother, fiancée, family, friends and fellow officers across the globe.

We will never forget.

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.

Thank you for your service to our country and for being my friend. We had some good times together and I will charrish every moment that we had. We will see each other at the pearly gate one day, when my time comes and we can start off where we left off.
Miss you buddy.

I remember the day he told me to get the app so we could support fallen officers. Never did I think I would see his handsome face on this. For all of the officers that may read this please go home and write you significant other a letter. A letter so that if anything were to happen to you they will know how you feel about them. That's all I've been trying to find since he was taken away from me. Make sure you kiss them like it might be the last time. You never know if it might be. He was still in training. I didn't even worry about him not coming home. I thought I still had time before I had to worry.
