Thank you for your service, it takes alot of courage to run into a burning building to save lives and 9-11 was just another day for alot of heroes. I'm sure you saved many people that day. Rest in Peace, sir.

Thank you for your courage and thank you to your family or peers for the bio and the chance to know you, in passing, to say pay my respects.
We probably wouldn’t have agreed on much. But then, I don’t run towards danger to save strangers. So however wrong you may have been (or not) in words about warfare you were right and did right in your actions and I am truly humbled by your contribution, your courage, your long struggle before succumbing to your injuries. Goodnight and God Please Bless the Brave Soul: Police Officer Matthew S. von Seydewitz

The human who is responsible for your death died on that day, but their actions continue to take live and will do so. Their actions are unforgivable, as we all know, but those actions have caused us all to see the heroes among us and you, Officer von Seydewitz are a shining example. Thank you for your service, God Bless and may your eternal Rest be ever Peaceful.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
