Reflections for Police Officer Scott Alan Wertz
Please God forgive a silent tear
A constant wish that he was here
Others were taken that we know
But he was ours and we loved him so
He bid no one a last good-bye
He was gone before we knew it and only you know why
If all the world were ours to give
We would give it all and more
To see his loving face just once more
Well here it is another year without you. If only it would get easier as the days and years go by, but it doesn't. We try and go on but as you can see, we are such good actors. It is just not fair that you have to miss all the firsts of everything that the boys do and things they accomplish. Just knowing that you are watching over them is such a relief. Be with them and Trish as we go through these holidays. I know it is not easy.

Hi #2 son
"Well, here we are again, another fund raiser in your honor and as usual they want rain again. We all would rather be giving you the money in person for the hero that you are. I'm sure it is not easy for all your friends to be playing your game and you not being here to help them. Just wanted to let you know you are always on our minds and in our hearts forever. Keep all your brothers and sisters in blue safe.
We love and miss you more then you could know.

I can't believe it's been five years already. We all miss you very much. Please continue to watch over the guys at work it's not getting any better. Wish you were here to meet our kids, Travis is 4 already and Faith is 9 months. We all miss Uncle Scott. Sending lots of love your way.

Hey there brother,
It is now 5 years without you.... It seems like yesterday, but yet a lifetime ago, that i seen your smile, or heard your voice. I still look for you all the time.Waiting for you to pop up one day. Crazy... I know. Your ride is on Sunday, and your wife is riding herself this year. Can you believe that??? You should be very proud of the things she has accomplished. A lot of things have changed, our kids are growing up, and it just wasnt suppose to be this way. I know we all try to move forward and not dwell on the past and I know you dont want us to. So tomorrow I will celebrate your life and not mourn your death. Cant promise that i wont cry, that is an impossible promise. I will play your songs, have a couple of your favorite Rum and Cokes... and smile up at you looking down watching over us all. I love you and miss you forever. I carry you in my heart:)

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

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.

Sending Love back.....Lisa

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!
