The last time I talked to you was last summer at the indoor range. After 17 years of trying I had finally shot Distinguished Expert and you came over and congratulated me while I was struggling to get a picture of the target with my cell phone. You told me that you were assigned to Eastside and how you like being a Sergeant. It took me a second to recognize you but I remembered your tats from our time in CRU together. You were always a worker even until the end. You won't be forgotten. See you on the other side my friend.

To the Family and Wife of Sgt. Chris Brewster:
I want to extend my sincere sadness over the loss of your beloved husband, friend, and relative. Although I never had the privilege of meeting him in person, I have been blessed at a distance with the impact he has had on so many people at HPD and throughout his lifetime as I witnessed at the funeral today at Grace Church. I am the Police Administrator of HPD Psychological Services and came to assist on scene in the Eastside area, which is part of what our division does during critical incidents that impact our officers and civilians within HPD.
On behalf of our division I want to personally extend our heartfelt sorrow over your loss and offer our help to you, Bethany, and your family should you desire our assistance during this very difficult time.

Dear Cindy and family,
My deepest and sincere condolences in the loss of your dear son, brother, and husband. Our children (Lindsay Salsky) attended Sagemont together from the nursery up until High School graduation. I know this loss is overwhelming and my heart aches for you all. Having lost a son myself I understand your grief. I have and will continue to lift you up in my prayers. No mother/parent should ever have to say goodbye to their child but as you know it’s only temporary. If you ever need someone to listen to you or just sit and cry and hold your hand please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. May God comfort you all during this tragic loss and time of grief,
My deepest sympathy,
Susan Salsky
