Not sure what to say?

My heart breaks for you. I've been in public safety my entire life (27 years) and your sons' sacrifice gives me inspiration to go out and do the job the public expects of me, even after several lifetimes of personal hurt; when I feel spent and tired mentally and physically

I believe there is a God who watches over all of the affairs of men - everything. I believe that Kendricks' sacrifice was not in vain. God bless his soul. God heal your wounds

Your folks raised a good one. Be at peace.

You showed great courage in your short life. I pray your courage is remembered as an example of what good men do when terror strikes.

Kendrick, not too many Men have the Bravery you have, Your the biggest of all Men, wish you were still here, Ill have that talk one day with God, Look over your Family.❤

He is a hero and true American. He was raised right and will always be remembered for what he did. So sorry for your loss of a truly great son you can be very proud of.

You son did what we all hope we can do, but in reality he did it, he saved lives, his legacy will live on. I am sorry for your loss. I have lost two children by tragedy and no one there to intervene, your son was there for a reason. God bless

No words can ease your pain I know but please know that my thoughts and payers are with you in your time of grief. May your broken hearts heal quickly.

What Kendrick did on that fateful day speaks volumes about the character and courage you instilled in your amazing son. You should be proud of that and thankful that he put those qualities into action saving many other souls from the same fate. Kendrick will be remembered for his bravery and courage. I didn't know Kendrick personally. But, as a retired law enforcement officer and parent, I know your grief and heartbreak and pray for your comfort and strength in this sad time. Jesus Christ...

My heart is broken for you. What a legacy Kendrick leaves behind! May no one ever have to make that choice again!
