RE: BSO Chief Sudler to resign

Dear Editor:

Merry Christmas and may God bless you and your family into the future… with health and good fortune forever.

To me, you will always be way more than Chief, much more than a father, and transcend anyone who has to tell you how much integrity or professionalism they possess.

I have had the pleasure of working with BSO and the many chiefs through the years since moving to Florida. I maintain many relationships through all commands and districts. I represent many professional police officers throughout the country and I know leadership and professionalism when I see it.

Your efforts on behalf of the residents of Deerfield Beach and your fellow officers sets you apart in regard to those attributes, because real leaders earn their respect through self-effacing service and loyalty, which is why many are sad to hear of your status and the way you were treated.

Loyalty is earned, trust is earned, integrity is earned and respect is accumulated over time.

Everyone appreciates all of your efforts in regard to everything you have accomplished – which has added immeasurable value through the years you have served Deerfield Beach.

If there is a way to keep you in Deerfield Beach in some capacity, I will work on your behalf.

Real men with the qualities you possess only come along in life sporadically.

As we say in the survivor group Voices of Sept. 11, “We must always remember the sacrifices of our heroes for they have made our lives possible.”

“God speed,” my friend. You will always excel in any endeavor you undertake and I will always be your friend.

All the best and God bless!

RE: Beloved mail carrier killed on motorcycle

Dear Editor:

We read [recently] about our mail carrier Jeff [in the Nov. 29 Observer newspaper] and his death while riding his motorcycle.

We are so, so sorry to hear this sad news. Jeff was never too busy to not say “hi” and always asked about our scuba diving.

He read this newspaper and whenever I would write a letter, he would jokingly tell me I was famous. He will be very much missed. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Donna, and Tom Allan

Mail carriers make a difference

Deerfield Beach is a great place to live. We have so many city services at our fingertips. Led by our dedicated Mayor Peggy Noland and her supporting cast, we have a clean, safe city and beautiful beach.

There is a star player, [who is] seldom, if ever, mentioned. But if you use our local post office, you will know her.

When postal worker Jackie Wallace is on duty, you will always see a smile on her face and you will leave with a smile on yours, walking a little lighter and feeling happier because of your encounter with her.
