Reflections for Police Officer Matthew J. Rittner

So Sorry for the loss, I pray that GOD will watch over the family and fellow officers that served with this officer. May God give some sense of peace. We all lose when a LEO falls. Take hope in the fact they are now patrolling Heavens Streets. Again my deepest regrets for the loss.

As a Retired LEO, it especially hits home to lose a young Officer and Marine of such good caliber. To his Wife, Son, Family, and fellow Officers and members of the MPD and his Military Family, may you remember Matt for all the good he has done in his short life. Thank you all for your service and sacrifice.

My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Matthew Rittner. Losing a loved one is always difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. I am sorry for your lost.
