"Well on behalf of the people of the United States I want to add my condolences to the Ramon family. It is always difficult to lose a loved one, it is especially difficult to lose a young man still with the prime of life before him, with such promise and hope, and in the line of duty. So we regret the loss and we extend our deepest sympathies to his family."
