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

To the Leist family, fellow officers, and all who call Amber 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 know that that you will 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 Detective Leist gave to her community and the citizens of California and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on January 12, 2020.
