Christopher on his way to his life-long dream of becoming a Police Officer

After my son's Line of Duty death, COPS was there for my family. I hope to continue that help for others who will need it most.

As a family our lives changed forever on the night of December 19, 2007. That was the night that my son Christopher, a Smithsburg, Md. Police Officer was shot and killed in the Line of Duty. For myself and my family, nothing could have prepared us for pain and heartbreak we would forever carry throughout our lives and his loss. It was the darkest period of my life, and at times I could honestly see no way to continue on.

Looking back now I seem to have blurred the painful memories into one long series of events. I guess your mind has a way of protecting you when life hands out too much pain to endure. But throughout all that I do have one good memory, and that is of the unselfish time and effort that the people who make up COPS freely gave to help ease the pain and feeling of lonelyness my family was going through. They were always there for us, at the time I guess we didn't even realize everything that was done on our behalf. But I do now, and I want them all to know how much we appreciate what they have done. There are no words to express how thankful we are. I know they took as much of the load from us as was possible. They provide so much, to total strangers when they need it most. But, you don't stay strangers very long, It soon feels like you've known these people all your life. They understand how you feel, and what you're going through. They have been there, done that already. I marvel at their capacity to reach out to others, I know it brings everything about their own loss back. You can see it in their faces, they too, feel the pain. They are a fine organization, the people within are top-notch. They all have my deepest respect for what they do. I hope I can help in a small way through this walk to help them continue to help others when they need it most.

Thank you C.O.P.S. you all can be proud of the job you do. And from my family to yours...thank you for everything you do for us and others EVERY day!
