Officer Walsh, the coward who murdered you and your partner, and so many other innocent victims is gone and can no longer kill again. It begs the question, couldn't he have killed himself FIRST?

Brother, thank you for your service. We honor your heroism and mourn your death. I know you're in Heaven and will never encounter your murderer again.

God Bless and may you forever, Rest in Peace.

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.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

Heroes are never forgotten. It’s my prayer your family experiences peace only God can provide during this painful time. Your sacrifice reminds all of us why our country is the greatest on earth. Those who willingly pursue evil to protect others from it and lose theirs lives are the greatest heroes on earth. You, sir, are one of those heroes. God bless your family.
