On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when William died as a result of an illness he suffered in the line of duty in 2001 during the aftermath of 9/11.

To the Wanser family, fellow officers, and all who call William 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. I hope that you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Lt. Wanser gave to his community and the citizens of New York and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 25, 2018. We shall never forget any of our 9/11 heroes and I hope you and your family know that a grateful nation mourned for you.
