Special Agent Schwartzenberger,

Here we are, on the third anniversary of your passing. I'm so glad that a person like you was a part of the FBI. It was agents like you that made it a respectable law enforcement agency. It's a shame you are no longer there. It is persons like you who would have kept it respectable. I hope I meet you in heaven.

Hello again, Special Agent Schwartzenberger,

I just read an article about a case in Australia that is connected to the arrest you were involved in, back in 2021 when you lost your life in the line of duty. Australian Federal law enforcement has broken up a pedophile ring there, which the American suspect you arrested was a part of. One of your former colleagues spoke about you in the article. She mentioned how your faith in God carried you through your job. You are one of those I hope to meet in Heaven.

Special Agent Schwartzenberger,

I just found your memorial page, after reading an article about a good friend of yours, in the FBI. You and Special Agent Alfin died heroically, protecting our nation's precious children. I hope to meet you in heaven one day. My prayers go out to your husband, children, family members, friends and colleagues. Rest in peace.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. – Matthew 5:9

Well done Agent. You were the sheepdog who died confronting the predators who were after the innocent lambs. May you rest in God's arms forever, and say hello to Grogan, and Dove who also died confronting predators of a different kind.

Special Agent Schwartzenberger, it's now been 1 years since your murder at the hands of a vile and meaningless individual. Thank you for your service and your efforts to protect children.

May you and Special Agent Alfin forever Rest in Peace, Brother and God Bless.

I am so sorry for the loss of Agent Laura and Agent Daniel. I was fortunate to meet each one and both were the kindest people. Throughout the years I have met several FBI Agents, and I hold each one Highly in regard. The job you undertake is a Serious and at times scary one. It takes persons, with Integrity, Bravery and Kindness, and the Best of the Very Best in this scary time of this country, to put their lifes on the line. When speaking with each one, I felt a sense of peace. May GOD keep each and everyone safe as the years go by. I pray in the days ahead that each one they left behind will find peace and many blessings. Be at peace.

I think she a relative of mine, my moms maiden name is Schwartzenberger, not a common name. I think she might have been related to my Uncle Gus or married into the family.

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.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Though I do not mourn, nor could I mourn the vile animal who murdered you, Special Agent Schwartzenberger, I do mourn you. You contributed to society wherein your murderer did not and then robbed the justice system of prosecuting him and exposing him for the filth he was.

Thank you for your years of service in helping to protect this country from those who would do us harm. God Bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace, Sister.

God Bless your family and you for your sacrifice to the sons and daughters of light. Good people are the only ones who stand between good and evil. No greater love for your fellow man is to lay down your life. We got it from here.

Family, Friends and fellow Law Enforcement brothers and sisters. As I reflect on a 25+ year career as a Law Enforcement Professional I am overwhelmed and consumed by the loss of our sister and brother Law Enforcement Professionals.

May God bless and keep them in His everlasting arms as their memory lives forever in the hearts and minds of those who served and alongside them.

Rest well, your watch is complete we will take it from here.
