Reflections for Police Officer Scott Alan Wertz


Hi #2

I am at one of your favorite places and I know that you are here with us. Thank you for that. I only wish it was in person and not in spirit, but at least you are here, and that is what is important to me .

Still miss you


January 26, 2017

Sorry I am late to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. December has been quite busy. The most important was, Jared graduating from Penn State. We are so proud of him and I know you must be too. It is such a shame that you couldn't be here to help celebrate. That is what is so heart breaking, that you have to miss out on all the accomplishments that you boys have and will accomplish.

Please take care of all your brothers and sisters that we have lost this past year and be with their families and friends as they go through such a terrible time in their lives.

Do the criminals or others think it is open season on law enforcement personnel??? I only hope and pray that in the very near future there will be stricter laws and punishment when ambushing and just shooting law enforcement personnel. They just have no respect for the law.

Love and miss you.

Hey Scott,

It's been some time, other than Birthdays and that "HORRIBLE DAY". But, for some reason I feel the need to come here and chat.....
Times are bad, real bad. I am so sad as to what I saw in the news today. 4 officers ambushed....It makes me so sick to my stomach.
I can't imagine what the families are going through right now. I only know what I am feeling, as a friend (losing you), as a wife of a police officer and A Mother of Armed Forces, I am scared....SCARED AS HELL OF LOSING ANYONE ELSE to this madness.
In saying that, after the tournament was a BEAUTIFUL sight.... BUT, My wish would be, that it would never have to happen to another family. As beautiful as it was, it still sucked.

Here it is, 10 years later and seems like yesterday. Thank goodness we have all those wonderful memories that really keep us going Don't know what we would do if we didn't have them.

Thank you for the great weather, even tho it was hot as h---, and just a little rain.

John did a good job again this year organizing. Lisa took care of the food and did a good job and a lot of team work. Lou thanks for all the running. Jared's team did really great this year, Hopefully next year will be his year.

Slinger was really happy that you were there visiting with him and giving him pointers(haha).

Tricia did a really fantastic job in organizing a vigil for your 10th anniversary(only wish it was for a happier occasion). The Chinese lanterns that were set off for you were so beautiful. Jared had a little trouble with his and we told him you were trying to tell him something(just kidding).

A lot of you friends, co-workers, family were there to honor our hero and you truly were our hero and I want to thank all of them.

One more favor to ask, we need nice weather for next Sunday. No rain. Thank you

Miss and love ya

Tricia did a really good job

Hey Brother,

Hard to believe it's been 10 years now. Sometimes it seems like yesterday......other days it seems like a lifetime ago. I don't think there is anything to say that hasn't already been said here....... Keep up the good work on the over watch from up there..... We got the fight down here!

Your boys are turning out to be fine young men. Just wish you were here for them. They are a little rough on the edges but we all were at their ages.

I wish I could be there for this weekends events but duty calls once again.

Miss you Bro,


August 5, 2016

Happy Birthday Scott!!!!
I missed your 40th celebration (sorry again)
Now we're all missing you on your 50th!!!! Keep on partying and sorry if Gram is trying to keep it calm up there with you and my dad. What am I talking about? She's probably up there keeping the party going!!!! Party on Scott!
Sending love back! Lisa

Hi Scott,

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday...and thank you for keeping us all safe and sound. I also wanted to tell you how proud I am of being Jared and Josh's aunt. I have had the privilege of watching them grow and mature into gracious young men over the past few years, and am humbled by their strength and fortitude.

Thinking of you and yours today.

Happy Birthday to my #2 son. Can't believe it is 10 long years. I miss all the wonderful times we had and all the wonderful times we could have had. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of you. You are in our hearts and minds.


May 5, 2016

It was so good to see you today. I just want to thank you for watching over us and hope you will be spending time with us and keep us safe. Looking forward to seeing you every day.

Sorry I am late in wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here we are entering a new year again without you. Sure sucks. Hopefully our wondrous governor
will get his act together and get the death penalty in motion so these criminals will get the punishment that was handed to them by the wonderful people on the juries. All the evidence is there that is why they make the correct decisions. Let's hope we see that happen in our life time. Well enough about that crab. On a happier note, Jared is doing great at college and Josh did really well at soccer goalie, first round choice pick as goalie. You would be so proud of your boys as we are. Wish you were here. Miss you so much.

January 3, 2016

It's been a long time since I have been here. Sure I get on from time to time to see if there are any new posts, but I usually don't leave one. I guess I figure I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said. With that being said, I'm just going to say that I miss you so much! It just sucks that you are not here. Some days are worse then others. I love you and I want you back!

Nine years ago we lost you and it seems like yesterday. I hope one of these days it will get easier, but I think that is unlikely.
This weekend will be busy, softball on Saturday and Sunday the ride all for your honor for family and friends to talk about all the good times we shared and had with you, but was cut way too short. Keep watching over us. Been seeing you around quite a bit this summer. I guess you are just checking up on us. Thank you for that.

Be with Trish and the boys cause I know it cannot be easy for them.

Don't forget, NO RAIN

You are always in our thoughts and heart..

I'm back.

Another milestone in our lives has gone by. Two of them so close together.

Thank you for all the kisses and hanging out we got the other day. Well worth all the money in the world. It made our day and brought back memories of all the good times.

Just wished it could have been with you in person, but those days are forever gone.

Miss you;

Lots of love

Hello #2 son,

Well here it is, another milestone in our lives and you were not here to enjoy and help celebrate. It would have been something we probably would never have forgotten.

You probably would have had him sing "Mrs. Jones and would have been dancing on the tables.

Thank you for visiting us in Florida.

I understand our wonderful governor is talking about getting rid of the death penalty. What a big mistake it will be for families to try and have some kind of closure. It is always about the criminals rights but never about the victim's and their families what they had to all go through. Makes you wonder.

Miss you LOL

Sorry I am a little late, but Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Sorry I haven't been here for quite a while, it's not that I forgot about you, I think of you often every time I find coins in my travels I know you are watching over us. Jared's big day is approaching very fast. It is so sad and not fair that you have to miss another milestone in his life.

Miss you

Hey Scotty, its been awhile since I commented on here but I think of you often. I just bought another memorial bracelet to remember you by and honor you. Your loss is still felt by all who loved and respected you. You were an exceptional officer whose service to his community was genuine. I miss you buddy, RIP.

Hi #2 son

Well here it is eight years later and it seems like it was just yesterday. We need your help this weekend regarding the weather. We will be honoring our hero on Saturday, the softball tournament, and then on Sunday for the ride, cause YOU are our hero. It gives us chills when we hear all those bikes pulling out from the lot. It is a sound I know you liked to hear and that is the hardest part for me.. when they go roaring by.

We miss you, LOL

August 8, 2014

Another year, we miss you terribly. I stopped by today glad to see,you has a few drinks. We miss you!!,
