Reflections for Special Agent Jay P. Balchunas

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.


Rest in peace.

Jay~

A former co-worker and current officer with the Town of Oconomowoc Police Department was taken from her loved ones by a senseless act of violence yesterday. She has a son slightly older than Andy - please help watch over him and the rest of her family as they cope with this tragic loss.

We miss you terribly...happy holidays in heaven.

Love,
Linda

I'm a little late but I wanted you to know that I have not forgotten about you or your loved ones. Continue to watch over all of them as I know the daily struggle they face without you here. You have not been forgotten.

I can't believe it was five years ago today that you were shot... I still think about you a lot.

5 years ago..........

I was thinking of you today remembering all the good times and couldn't help but smile. I don't want to remember you for the events 5 years ago, they will never define you to me. I remember you for you, what and who you were to Luann, your family, friends and those that love you.

You are still so amazing to me and from those I've talked to still have a profound effect on those left here on earth.

You are not forgotten, nor will you ever be. You will be held close in my heart until the day I die and your memory will live on by the stories we tell to remember you.

Hi Jay, I just wanted you to know, your service and sacrifice are not forgotten. I was drawn to the website this morning, not even aware of the date. Tomorrow will be 5 years, impossible to believe. God bless your family and friends. We've got the watch down here.

Hey Jay,
I don't know why it took so long. I guess it had to do with accepting the fact that you are gone. Lots of family news lately. All good, thank goodness. I'm sure you have a lot to do with that, thanks. The boys miss you a ton. Andy cries sometimes and Bryan says he misses you. He just doesnt remember like Andy does. Thinking a lot about you lately with a new assignment in January, will be for 2 years. I know you'll watch over me and help guide me when I need it. I'll be using some of your old equipment (you know which one) so I know you'll be close. We all miss you !

Watch over us
Chris

I swear I saw you today. In New Berlin, in your camero, with Max driving. I had to take a double take - and my heart fell when I realized it wasn't you, but a man with his black and white dalmation. It made me miss you, it made me remember all the times we had, it made me angry.

I miss you more today then ever, it never changes, it never goes away.

I'll remember you always................

Dan will be riding in your honor and memory in the Police Unity Tour again in a couple of weeks. Many friends and family came together to support him last Saturday to help him accomplish his goal. It was a wonderful celebration. You would have enjoyed it. I know you are very proud of him. Please watch over him as he rides to honor his big brother.

We love you and miss you.

I stopped in to see Luann again today and again jumped on her computer. I wanted to leave another message that I am still so shocked about you passing away.
I will be going back overseas for about another 6 months or so, but today Luann was telling me about the motorcycle ride and golf outting in your honor. I am hoping to make it back for one of those this year.
I'll be keeping track of the events on the websites when I get back to my computer. I hope that they raise a lot of money for the scholarship fund and the charity.
