Reflections for Police Officer Sean A. McDonald

Sean, I didn't know you but please know that everything you have done is greatly appreciated. To your wife and kids, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sean was taken to heaven to continue being the best he could be at the right hand of God. Knowing that officers like Sean are in heaven makes it easier knowing when we get there Heaven will be the safest place there is. God and Officers...it will be the best of the best!!
God Bless!!!

I remember when Sean was a pup. He always wanted to be in the army and I knew one day he would. I never knew how much he wanted to be a cop but we grew up in a civil service area and I guess I wasn't surprised that he would be a cop. Brother Sean you made the ultimate sacrifice and for that you will never be forgotten. I will always remember you as the little kid on the block....the teenage bottle boy in the deli and most importantly as the brave cop that will always be standing watch to keep heaven safe. I miss you Sean

To Officer Sean McDonald his wife and children, and his loved ones:

On this the twelth anniversary week of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today. I am so saddened that your life was taken at such a young age by such a senseless, despicable act.

My heart goes out to your family. You’re in our thoughts and our prayers.

Officer McDonald, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Officer Sean McDonald.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Officer McDonald gave to his community and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 15, 1994.

I'LL NEVER FORGET THE NIGHT YOU LEFT US ALL. YOU WERE STANDING GUARD ON SHAKESPEARE AVE LIKE A MARINE AT GITMO. YOU WERE GREAT COP WITH A GREAT FUTURE BUT THE ANIMALS HAD OTHER PLANS FOR YOU. REST IN MY MAN AND WILL THROUGH BACK A COUPLE OF PINTS WHEN WE MEET AGAIN.

I can't believe it's been 11 years since you left us. Rather than remember how you died I prefer to think about the last conversation we had which was about 15 minutes before tragedy struck. You were so exited about taking your son to the St. Patricks parade. You were a good Dad, a good man and a good cop. You will never be forgotten. Rest easy till we see you at the big return roll call.

Officer Mcdonald worked and ended his watch in the South Bronx. He was a proud member of the 44th Precinct where we still have his locker with his name on it today. Rest in peace brother.
