Reflections for Sergeant Thomas A. Sanfratello

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.

My thoughts and my prayers are with the family of Genesee County Sheriffs Department Sergeant Thomas Sanfratello and the entire Genesee County Sheriffs Department at this time of tragedy. It was a very sad Easter for the family and all of Genesee County as they mourn the loss of a great sheriff's deputy who was called to break up a fight at the Batavia Downs Casino. This is a real tragedy that has happened.
