E.O.W. October 15, 2010
We would like to thank you for your very generous gift of funding our plane fare and hotel rooms for the Schuengel family‘s trip to National Police Week to honor Sergeant Joseph Schuengel, a beloved son to Georgiana, brother to Barb, Suzie, and Adrianne, and uncle, friend and colleague. Your love, kindness and support means so much to us. It was good to see you both in person in Washington. The trip was bittersweet. We met many families and officers and learned much in attending the support groups that were offered. We attended debriefing sessions for surviving parents and siblings and speaking for myself(Barb), it was a very powerful experience for me to be able to talk about the day of Joe‘s death with other siblings who could understand what I was feeling. Another very helpful group was “Dealing with Family and Friends Who Don‘t Get it“, we have encountered many in the community who think we should “get over it“ and move on. We must never forget our fallen heros. We are very sad, but also very proud of Joe and all the officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice to their community and country. Beging in our nation‘s capitol for National Police Week with other families of fallen officers and approximately 20,000 police officers brought reality for us that we are truly members of the larger police family.

After arriving at the scene he and other officers began searching for the suspect. As the officers approached the man he suddenly turned and opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Shaw. Another officer returned fire and killed the suspect.

E.O.W. June 20, 2010
I would like to express my deep gratitude for what you have done to help with the expenses of sending myself and my 2 children to Washington DC to honor my husband. The death of a husband brings about so much pain and stress that it is hard at times to even get out of bed in the mornings. Everyday, simple life occurrences often become overwhelming. At the time of National Police Week, I had a lot of anniversary dates of things that brough me much sadness and although it is my greatest desire to always honor my husband at all times, I could feel the stress of the trip weighing on me. The Barwick/Newton Fund relieved a lot of that stress and made it possible for my children and I to meet a lot of friendly people who all shared similar tragic events and were really able to understand the pain that comes with it. My children both met friends that were very similar to them and that they could talk to. I also met ladies that I‘m sure will become friends for life. Thank you so much for your assistance with getting us there. It is a trip that we will NEVER forget.

Words cannot express how thankful I am for the help your Organization has put in to make this trip possible. If it wasn‘t for your help we wouldn‘t be able to be at the Memorial to honor my husband. It never came to thought that this was a way my husband would ended his life. But through prayers and support from people all over and with the support from your Organization, COPS, friends and families, etc. I am still surviving with God‘s love upon me.
