Stephen Mayhle

"...Mayhle joined the Pittsburgh police two years ago. Sgt. Eric Holmes, their supervisor at the Zone 5 station where they worked said both officers were "young, energetic."

"They were always early, ready to start their shift," said Holmes. "They just loved being cops."

Mayhle celebrated his 29th birthday on Friday. Mayhle and his wife recently bought a home in the city after living with their daughters in a high-rise apartment building.

Shandra Mayhle recently wrote on her blog, "My husband is employed by the Pittsburgh City Police. He loves what he does!"

... Mayhle is survived by his wife, Shandra; daughters, Jennifer, 6, and Brooklynn, 3; his parents, Marjorie and Ronald Mayhle; and two brothers."

I have huge respect for the individuals who choose law enforcement as their profession. I'm glad to read that he loved his career and was proud to be a city policeman. Hoping this gives you some solice during your mourning. Peace be with you and your daughters.

I never quite know what to say in a time like this. Stephen, along with the other 2 officers who lost their lives and the others who were shot are true heroes. My heart goes out to your family. As a Christian, I will be praying for your family.

Shandra,
We are so sorry to hear of the death of your beloved husband, Stephen. It is difficult to understand why there is senseless violence. Your husband sacrificed his life for others. Hug your daughters. Know that Stephen is with our Father in heaven and that he will be watching over you and helping you get through each day. Have faith that you will be guided by God in all that you do.
Our sincerest sympathy for all of Stephen's friends and relatives.
