+ Jersey City Detective Marc DiNardo

No matter how I try I cannot find words that adequately express my appreciation for Detective Marc DiNardo and the gift he continues to be to so many. Anyone whose life path crossed his, whether for a lifetime or a moment, is saddened by the fact that he is gone too soon, and no one knows that painful reality more than his dear family and loved ones. To Mary and the entire DiNardo family and family of friends, I extend my sincere condolences and prayer support, not just today but for the years to come.In life and in death, Marc offers us the example of what it means to serve and live selflessly. As we continue to be of support especially to Mary and his children and his brothers and sisters in blue, let us honor Marc's life by following his example in our own.Marc, we know that "... [God] will raise you up on eagle's wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand" (from "On Eagle's Wings"). Stay with and watch over your family, friends, colleagues, and fellow officers now as you always have done. We honor you and thank you. We will never forget you.Rest now in peace, Detective Marc Anthony DiNardo. Rest now in the palm of God's hand, Marc.
