Happy Birthday #2 son. Haven't been here for a while and am sorry about that, but want you to know you are always on my mind and in my heart. Well, here it is another year gone by for your birthday without you being here to enjoy it. How unfair it is. Next week it will be another year where we will be in DC to honor all the law enforcement officers who where killed in the line of duty. Please give us the strength to get through it cause it is never easy.

We are really proud of Trish and I know you will be too for her participating in the ride this year to honor you and all the other fallen officers. I know it is not easy for her, but she is a trooper.

We miss you more then you can ever know.

Please be with the boys and guide them.

We did not see you close your eyes
We did not see you die
All we knew was that you were gone
Without a last good-bye
It was a sudden parting
Too bitter to forget
Those you love you dearly
Are the ones who can't forget.

Love and miss you

Anyway, I will keep at it and try my best!! Soon I and many others will ride 250 miles in your honor. Please give me the strength to complete it when I need it!! I will think of you and your sacrifice all the way! Until next time . . .

Hey Hon. Just want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Sorry it is a day late. It breaks my heart that we have to go to a cemetary to "see" you and wish you a Merry Christmas. We love you and miss you terribly!

Love forever,

Hi #2 son

Been a while since I visited you (sorry about that). Just want to wish you a Merry Christmas. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Often wonder what life would be like if you were still here with us. There are so many things that we think about that involved you or events that happen that will always keep your memory alive.

Love and miss you

Hey Hon. I wanted to write on the 6th but couldn't find words that haven't been said many times before. The ride in your honor went pretty good despite the weather. Maybe one of these years it will be nice ALL day! Well, it has been a whirlwind of a summer and the last few weeks have been hard. Please give everyone the strength to deal with Joshua G's death. They really need it! It has been really hard for them and I just can't imagine! With that being said, I still can't believe you are gone 4 years. It feels like a lifetime ago but yet yesterday. Jared got his hair cut the other day. Buzz cut. When he got up from the barber chair and turned toward me, I almost passed out! It was like you were standing in front of me. Just thinking about it now makes me shed tears. I held it together but have really been struggling the past week everytime I look at him. He is a spitting image of you with the personality to match! You know - 16 giong on 30. A lot like you at that age I'm sure! Please give us the strength to make it through another year without you! We love you and miss you terribly!

Love forever,

Trish

Hey Scott,

Hard to believe 4 years have passed. I miss you so much, and I am still so angry that you were taken away. Our family has had yet another tragedy to endure. Please take care of our Josh. He always looked up to you, and I am sure he was so happy to see you again. At least we can have comfort knowing that you are there for him. Please give Josh a hug & kiss for us and tell him how much we love & miss him. I miss you so much Scott. There are no words to express how I feel. Now we lost Josh and it is so horrible and tragic, how do we get through this? I need you and your not here, and I just dont know what to do.

I carry you in my heart:)

Hi #2 Son,

Well, another year has gone by without you being here with us. Some days it just seems like it was yesterday that you were taken from us. There are so many firsts that you had to miss. It just isn't fair to you or the kids.

Some days it is easier then others. We hear a song that reminds us of you or is perfect for you that it makes it easier at times. Please take Joshua G. under your wing.

Don't think of him as gone away
His journey had begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth was only one.
Just think of him as resting
From the sorrows and the fears
In place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how he must be wishing
That he could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And he was loved so much.

We love and miss you.

Missing you today just as much as any other day. I can't believe its been 4 years since you were taken from us.

Hey Scott, It's been a while since I last talked to you. I can't believe it's been 4 years. Time sure doesn't stand still. I still look for you when I work at the Sovereign Center. It's just a habit. Trish, I hope your doing ok. Haven't seen you either for a while. Haven't seen you at any of the concert we've been too lately! That's where I usually see you. Take care of yourself. I know Scott is looking down at you and your young men (boys).
Love, Kim C.

Hey Hon. I heard this song today by Danny Gokey. He lost his wife and wrote the song in memory of her. It reminded me so much of you, what we've been through and how I feel. It is called I Will Not Say Goodbye. I dedicate this to you:

It changes everything you've been
And all that's left to be
Is empty, lonely, broken, hopin'
I'm supposed to be strong
I'm supposed to find a way to carry on

I don't wanna feel better
I don't wanna not remember
I will always see your face
In the shadows of this haunted place
I will laugh
I will cry
Shake my fist at the sky
But I will not say goodbye

They keep saying time will heal
But the pain just gets more real
The sun comes up each day
Finds me waiting, fading, hating, praying
If I can keep on holding on
Maybe I can keep my heart from knowing that you're gone

Cause I don't wanna feel better
I don't wanna not remember
I will always see your face
In the shadows of this haunted place
I will laugh
I will cry
Shake my fist at the sky
But I will not say goodbye

I will curse
I will pray
I'll relive everyday
I will shelter the blame
I'll shout out your name

I will laugh
I will cry
Shake my fist at the sky
But I will not say
Will not say goodbye
I will not say goodbye


Love you and miss you!!

Love forever,

Trish

Officer Wertz,

Thank you so much for your ultimate sacrifice. Officers like you are part of the reason that I have decided to become a police officer. I will complete PT tomorrow in your honor. God speed.
