Well dad, today makes a whole year that you have been gone. Things finally seem real because for a while, I just put in the back of my mind that you were not gone. I miss you so much daddy. The kids miss you too. They are always talking about you and the memories you made with them will forever be in their hearts. I miss you so much, but I know that you are happy and that no one here on earth can hurt you ever again. One day we'll see each other again and you'd better be waiting at heaven's gates for me, because I'm gonna be looking for you. God Speed Daddy, God Speed.

Love you always and will forever be your baby girl.

Hey Dad,
Can't believe it is all ready the one year anniversary. I think about you every minute of every day. You told me once that life goes on after death but I wish I knew how. How I wish you were here to guide us and protect us. I have so many great memories and I am so thankful for that. I will never forgetyour smile. Even though the picture on this site doesn't look that way, you had a heart of gold. Our little town is not the same without you here. One day we will meet again and what a day that will be!

David,

It's hard to believe it's been a year. I've thought about you and Trudy and the kids often since I learned of your accident last year.
I mourned you like a brother. We grew up together and I have a hard time believeing you're really gone.
I keep you and the family in my prayers and hope to see you again when we are both enjoying God's reward!

Hey Daddy,
Well, it was my birthday yesterday and I so missed you being the first one to call to sing to me. You would sing that song, Happy Happy Birthday Baby! How I miss you so much. You could always make me smile. I am trying Dad to go on but it is soooo hard to do sometimes. I do know that you are at peace and that I have a special angel to watch over me! Love you dude!

If only I would have known the last place this picture would be posted when we took it for the web site...

Thank you for believing in me and giving me my first law enforcement job. If it weren't for you, I would not be as successful as I have been. We didn't get along much, but it was because of the reason you gave...we are very much alike...both hard headed.

Once again, thank you for all that you did for me. You left as a hero...I could only hope for the same.

I had the opportunity to ride in honor and in memory of Chief Richard this year during the 2008 Police Unity Tour. I never had the distinct opportunity to personally meet Chief Richard, but I did have the honor of meeting his family during the Candlelight Vigil in Washington D.C.

I hope the memorial bracelet that I presented to Chief Richard’s family will be a small token of comfort and support during these difficult times.

To Chief Richard's Family, stay strong and remember the good times you had with your loved one. Please rest assure that my thoughts and prayers are forever with your family.

May Chief Richard always be remembered fraternally by the Law Enforcement Family.
