Reflections for Police Officer Scott Alan Wertz

 

Hi #2 son

Well, here it is, 5 years later. It seems like it was just yesterday. The last week or so, it seems that songs I heard, things I talked about, would bring tears to my eyes and I just felt like crying and felt sad. I then realized that it was close to your death anniversary date. I hate this time of the year.

It is just so heart breaking that you had and have to miss so much in all of our lives. I miss all our family vacations and all the fun we use to have.

Please do us a favor. On Sunday we don't want to have any tears, just plenty rays of sunshine.

Though your smile and hearty laugh are gone forever
and your hand we cannot not touch
We still have many memories of the one we loved so much
Your memory is our keepsake, with which we will never part
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts

You are sadly missed but will never be forgotten.

We love and miss you terribly.

t breaks my heart to see Lou getting his uniform ready to attend Kyle's service tomorrow, another painful reminder of how everyone's life can change in just one moment. A moment that will forever be imbedded in so many peoples minds.....Family, friends and especially Kyle's co workers.

My heart just broke when Trish called that night to tell me about another senseless shooting. It was like reliving a nightmare all over again.....

I know you will be with your Brothers and Sisters in Blue tomorrow...please give everyone the strength they need to deal with the pain we all know too well.....

Miss you and sending love back....Lisa

Wertz Family,
The loss of another Berks County Law Enforcement Officer from the Sheriffs Dept. has brought back the tragic memories of when we heard about your beloved Scott being killed.

I can hardly imagine how you must be feeling now reliving it thorugh another families similar tragedy in Berks County. I just wanted to let your family know that I am thinking about Scott as well and the sacrafice he made. Hoping that you guys are doing OK and that Scott was there to greet Kyle when he made it up to heaven. Take care and God Bless.

Hi Scott, unfortunately, another fellow officer from berks has joined you. 5 years have come and gone, but this definitely brings the painful memories back again. Why oh why do the good have to die young.

I just thought about how it was going to be 5 years ago that you were taken. I remember getting the phone call from Kevin Achey as I sat in the Reading China and Glass parking lot. Your boys are spitting images of you, and Jared is going to be a senior in high school! Where does time go, as it seems like yesterday he was a 5th grader at LenOak. I will always be thankful of your service, and I will never, ever forget it.

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

Hey Hon. Just a quick note to tell you I miss you and love you. Wish you were here to help me. I try my hardest with the boys. Just would be nice to know what you would do if you were here!! 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!

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:)
