Editor's Note: Middletown Police Sgt. George R. Dingwall died in the line of duty on Jan. 28, 2000.
To the Editor:
Middletown Police Sgt. George R. Dingwall will always be remembered in our spirits. Last January, the police department gathered in remembrance of Sgt. Dingwall.
I want to say how very sorry I am for the loss of a beloved officer. He knew the true meaning of wearing a badge. I urge all of the people to say a prayer for Dingwall's family as well as his fellow officers.
In my opinion, Sgt. Dingwall was a highly respected officer and I wish his family the very best of luck, as well as the men and women of the Middletown Police Department.
I give my sincere condolences to the officer's family as well as to the police officers. I also wanted to say how life goes on and it will take time to get over the death of a fellow officer.
I want to say thank you to all of the officers for what you do every day. I'm sure that if Sgt. Dingwall was around today, he would be so proud of you guys.
I wanted to write this article to offer my condolences to the people who knew and worked with Dingwall.
