May you somehow be consoled. I am so very sorry for your pain. And grateful for your efforts.

Update: As of 9 a.m. December 23, 2009, it looks as if Sergeant Hauser remains in stable condition. Deputy Mundell remains in critical condition. I hear the family is getting a lot of support from both neighbors and law enforcement colleagues. I wish them fortitude in all their trials and a speedy recovery.
Update: As of  December 24, 2009, Deputy Mundell remains in critical condition with a grave head wound. He is on life support. His family is with him and the prognosis is not good.
Update 3: As of December 26, 2009, Deputy Mundell remains in the hospital, remains in grave condition. The press has backed off, which is the respectful thing for this family and for the other law enforcement officers who need to support and be supported by each other.
