James A Burney was my dad. I have missed him every day since that awful day. I always feel awful for families of fallen officers especially this time of the year when we lost him so unexpectedly. My dad was trying to make extra cash for Christmas so he was helping out in Bossier. I am 45 years old now and I have outlived him, but his strength, stays with me and keeps me pushing forward. This loss chnaged the course of several lives left behind to wonder why and how something like this could happen. My dad was a good man and he loved being a police officer and a detective but most of all he loved being my dad and a husband to my mom. he was a family man, and when he was not working he wanted to be home with us. I remember outings at the lake with Mr and Mrs Bryce. I remember his good friends Mr Al Bryce and Mr Tabor, Mr Dunn, Mr Prator, these guys were always a part of a story or showing up with my dad to eat dinner at our house. Love does not know time it is infinite. I would trade everything I own for 5 more minutes with him. I love you daddy. Your "Rose" Karmen Rose Burney
