Officer Kolzak,
On today, the 1st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army-especially in Afghanistan. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Hey man, it's been exactly one year since you left us. Just saying hello, and hope you are resting easy. As I type this with tears, I randomly laughed at the Hawaiian shirt you wore to your homegoing. That shirt was soooooo you! Thank you for everything, friend, and I will see you again one day.

What a good guy Nick was. I remember his send off party before he went to Afghanistan and I told him to come back safely which he did. Or when we went out after 3-11 shift on Madison St. and I would ask Nick what he wanted to drink and Nick would smile and say to me
“ 3 fingers of Vodka” . The laughter and fun that would follow will have to sustain us for all who knew him.
We remember you brother.

Most merciful God, You hold each of us dear to Your heart. Hold all our nation’s law enforcement officers and their families, who are afflicted or affected by the COVID-19 Virus, in Your loving arms and tenderly draw them into Your life, together with all others who are living with the COVID-19 Virus. Assure them that they are not alone, and give them courage and faith for all that is to come. Strengthen those who care for them and treat them, and guide those who do research. Forgive those who have judged harshly, and enlighten those who live in prejudice or fear. Nourish those who have lost sight of You, and heal the spirits of those who are broken. We pray this in the mighty and holy name of Jesus Christ, who suffered and died, and then rose from the dead to lead us into new life, now and forever. In Christ Jesus, I pray. Amen.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [and daughters] of God.” [Matthew 5:9 ESV]
