CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The mother of fallen Cleveland Police Officer David Fahey has shared President Donald Trump's condolence letter.

The letter begins with:

It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the loss of your son, Officer David Fahey.

The rest of the letter:

Our Nation owes a debt of gratitude to David for his honorable service in the United States Navy and on the Cleveland Police Force.

While no words can possibly console your family at this sorrowful time, I pray that you are strengthened by the memory of David's enduring spirit and steadfast courage. He will be forever remembered for his commitment to protecting and serving the American people.

Melania and I join your family, friends, loved ones and the Cleveland Community in honoring David for making the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty.

The letter was delivered directly to the family.

Officer Fahey, 39, was struck and killed along I-90 on January 24 while assisting another police agency with a traffic crash.
