Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Marcus Lyman Whitfield
I have had you on my mid a lot here lately. I know that you are in a much better place- but you sure are missed down here. I am a better person for knowing you, Marc. It's hard to believe that I am almost 4 yeards older than you were when you were called home. Still thinking of you buddy.
And Melita- I would like to thinl that he would be all grey...but of course he would use "just for men" because he wouldn't want people to think he was "old"

I was with u the night we lost you! I will never forget who you were and how much you meant to me then as a beat partner and friend! I live every day of life to be a better man than I was that night, because of you! I am a man of faith and I know Gods plan is perfect and he makes no mistakes! Because of you Marcus and the tragic loss of you life, I want you to know and your friends and family it was not in vain. I am living testimony that Gods plan was perfect and he uses tragedy to save lost men! I am one of them and I use you as my testimony that God is alive and is a graceful God! Because of you many men and women will see Gods kingdom! I think and miss you everyday and I pray I live up to your standards for your sacrafice... Thank you more than I can ever express!

I think of Marcus Whitfield every day and pray for his friends, fellow deputies and family. His parents are two of the finest people on earth. They should not have to deal with their son's murderer being out of prison on parole in addition to what they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives because of what he has already taken from them. Please keep Corey Harris in jail for the entire length of his sentence.

Please do not let this killer go free. People like him don't have any respect for anyone. If he gets out, he'll probably go out and kill or injure someone else. Mr. Whitfield's family has been through enough. they don't need the worry of having this person not serve his full sentence. I vote...NO PAROLE!!!!

A "No parole" letter has been sent, so your cowardly killer remains locked up
and denied the pleasure of living in a world that you made safe for all of us.

I often think about you. Miss the neighborhood times and childhood memories. I miss seeing your parents and Marty but I understand. I wanted you to know that I meet Amber and keep in contact . I talk to Chad . You are missed. We love the memories but we loved you more.

Happy 40th Birthday Son! I have tried before to post something about you, but it was always to painful. I have been thinking a lot about you lately. Wondering what you would look like now. If you would have really gray hair like me or just distinguished gray streaks like your Dad. I often wonder about what kind of father you would have become if only God hadn't needed a handsome young Deputy in heaven that hot August night. You have three beautiful nieces to whom I know you would have been the best uncle ever. We miss you so much. They say it gets better but it dosen't! We just learn more ways to cope and God is so good. By the way, what's it like celebrating your Birthday with Jesus everyyear?
We love and miss you Son . . .

Alot has been going on over the past week that has made me think of you more and more. It has been almost 12 years- but feels like yesterday that you were taken. You would be proud of the man I have become. I see Marty every once in a while and honestly, my heart breaks for him.
Still Miss You...

Mr Whitfield was a great person who believed everyone deserved a second chance. I know because he gave my brother and I a second chance. Thats how we came to meet each other. Every week there after we could expect to see Mr Whitfield. He would stop by to see how we were doing and just to say hello sometimes in uniform and sometimes not. He just had a great value of trying to change the youth before it was to late. I can say he was a sucess with my brother and I. Mr Whitfield is loved and missed by Christopher M greer and Randall S Greer. P.S. May God have mercy on the men responsible for taking such a great man from this earth at the prime of his life. Love and miss you will see you the day I am called home. Until then continue to rest in peace my friend. Sincerely Chris Greer

Marc was a genuine guy, he was "the real deal" and you never had to wonder if he was just trying to be nice, because he actually was. He was a good friend and is missed.

don't worry old friend. I'm always there in the backdrop watching for you. I remember our last conversation hours just hours before you passed. I just hope I can be half the man and protector you are. When I see you again, we'll finish that last conversation. Thing is, I think you already have the answer. Love you brother.
