I was a 15 year old boy growing up in India on the other side of the world when I read about the UT sniper in the papers and the officer who took him out. Twenty nine years later I visited Austin, Texas to see the sight of the shootings.
Houston McCoy you are a hero and one of Gods angels. May you be with the Lord.

I watched a show called crime to remember tonight and I remember seeing footage of that day when I was a child. I want to say to Mr. Houston McCoy and his family that even though you do not want your name associated with that day, you were able to prevent a larger scale massacre on that day. May God be with, and RIP for your role in making sure more harm was not done on that day. God Bless you for living a very low key life and spending quality time with your family and friends. Can"t imagine that life in 2014, I know it was special for your kids and grandkids. RIP.

I came across this story as they were selling the rifle that Whitman used. I read so much about this man that stopped him in his tracks, wow what a character, I have read tribute after tribute about the man who carried out his duty so professionally on that fateful day in such horrific circumstances. I loved the way he lived his simple but fruiful life with his family, no tv, hunting, fishing and so on....can you imagine that now in 2014? Impossible. I never knew you Mr McCoy but I salute you as a real hero and gentleman!

Your courage, selflessness and valiant care for your fellow
man transcends time and continues to resonate in our contemporary world. A daunting task, no glory sought, a scary climb to save the innocent. Your service to others says much about and for you. Rest quietly, your soul at peace, you did your very best.

Kris, Jacque and family, I am sorry for the loss of your dad. I know he never wanted to be known as a hero, but he truly was. My sister was a student at UT at the time of the shooting and I remember how panicked we were watching a mad man shoot innocent people from the UT tower. I hope your good memories of your dad and grandfather help to ease your pain at this time. Let Pete and I know if we can help you in any way.

God Bless You. May you rest in peace. I pray for peace and comfort for your loved ones left behind.
