Thinking of you a lot today. You recently had a birthday, Oct 24th. I thought of you more on that day as well. You know, it just dawned on me that we were engaged on this weekend 10 years ago. Maybe that’s why my brain has been sorting through thoughts of you today. I can’t believe it has been that long. I don’t think my heart will ever be whole again. You took it with you! You are forever missed.

Jerry, thinking of you today. I spent some time at Mike & Pam's today. The boys and their families were there as well. Paislee and Zoe hunted Easter eggs. I really enjoyed spending time with everyone. I think of you often, but especially today. I've tried to imagine how our lives would be if you were still here. I usually don't dwell on it for long as I know it's not doing me any good. Im forever grateful to you for giving me an extra family. Your parents, Mike, Pam and the boys have been so good to me. Thank you for making me part of your family and for choosing me. You are missed, & loved always.

Thinking of you today on what is the 7th year since losing you. Wow, I can't believe it has been 7 years already. We took a wreath to the cemetery today and then stopped by to visit with your parents. It was good to see them. Paislee enjoyed Maggie. I'm sure you know all about Paislee. Life sure is strange. I still think of you often and a piece of my heart will always be with you. I don't think it will ever be the same. Please continue to watch over us, until we meet again.
Love always,
Samantha

Hi sweetheart, I can't believe it's been almost seven years
since you left us and stepped into Heaven. We, your family
will never stop loving and missing you. Our days are long
and empty without you.
Here is a poem that I wrote, and its for you.

" I just stepped into Heaven"
I just stepped into Heaven
What a glorious sight.
Then I saw my Savior
Standing to the right.
He reached His hand to me
And said come child and see
All the glory and the wonder
that I have for thee.
Then I saw my loved ones
who had gone on before,
they shouted out a welcome,
we'll be together forever more.
come join the celebration
it will last eternally
I've made it home to Heaven,
please don 't mourn for me.
i'll be waiting by the gate
when your time comes to leave
and I will welcome you
as others welcomed me.
written by Mom

I love you Son and I miss you every day.

Jerry:
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE IT'S BEEN SIX YEARS, TIME HAS
WENT BY SO FAST, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY THAT
YOU HERE WITH US.
YESTERDAY, SEPT. 13, MARANATHA BAPTIST CHURCH HAD
A "GOD BLESS AMERICA DAY", THEY RECOGNIZED AND
HONORED, MILITARY AND FIRST RESPONDERS. THEY
DISPLAYED A PICTURE OF YOU ON THE OVER HEAD AND
READ ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU. IT WAS AN
EMOTIONAL DAY FOR US. CHRIS BURFORD, ROB HENDERSON, TONY GAYLOR AND TRAVIS HAWLEY JOINED
US AT THE SERVICE. TWO LADIES FROM THE CPAAA WERE
THERE ALSO. IT MEANT A LOT TO US TO HAVE THEM THERE. THE OFFICERS ALSO WENT TO THE CEMETERY
AND THEN TO THE HOUSE FOR SANDWICHES. WE HAD
A GOOD VISIT WITH THEM. WE MISS YOU HONEY, BUT
WE KNOW THAT WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY THAT YOU WELCOME US INTO HEAVEN. CHRIS AND IRENE HAVE A LITTLE ONE, JUST ONE YEAR OLD AND EXPECTING ANOTHER ONE IN NOV.
I'M SURE I MENTIONED THAT CHRIS AND ERICA HAVE
A LITTLE GIRL NAMED ZOE, SHE IS EIGHT MONTHS OLD.
TRAVIS ANE DARLENE HAWLEY ALSO ARE EXPECTING A
BABY. I FEEL LIKE YOU ARE MISSING SO MUCH, BUT I'M
SURE THAT YOU KNOW WHAT GOES ON WITH US AS MUCH
AS GOD WILL ALLOW.
SAMANTHA AND DERICK ARE EXPECTING, IN FACT, SHE
WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL FOR AN EMERGENCY
C-SECTION. WE'RE PRAYING THAT THINGS WILL GO
WELL, SHE HAS LOST SO MUCH.
I WISH THIS COULD HAVE BEEN YOU AND SAMANTHA
BUT GOD KNOWS BEST AND WE'LL UNDERSTAND IT ALL
SOMEDAY. I WILL CLOSE FOR NOW, DAD AND I LOVE
YOU SO MUCH AND MISS YOU EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY
DAY. LOVE MOM.

Beverly Jones,

Jerry,

It has been 6 long years that the lord called you home. We miss very much. There is not a Day goes by that you are not thought of. Well Jerry we miss you. I can't wait to see you when I get to Heaven. Tell Grandpa Shepherd that we all said hi.

Love and miss you very much Jerry

Tomorrow, 9-13-15 will make 6 years since you were taken from us. Although I'm living my life and moving on to the future, it's 6 years later and I'm still unable to completely sort through all of your things. I've made progress and given a lot of things to your family, but I'm down to the last couple of boxes/ tubs and I still struggle. I'd like to make a memory book out of some of the things that were given in your honor after your death. I'll get around to it, hopefully soon. I try but it's like salt on a wound. I hope you understand that I put things off or keep them hidden in my mind/ heart because it's the only way Ive been able to cope. I hope you're happy for me and the progress I've made. The past couple of years (after losing both my mom & Cooper), I've been determined to do what makes me happy and to live. People will have their opinions but it's MY life and I'm finally at a happy place. It doesn't mean you are forgotten or that you don't matter. You are still very much a part of me and I carry you in my heart. I really miss you & Cooper. I hope he's with you.
We went to the cemetery today and placed a wreath. It was chilly & windy, I think it's the first time in 6 years that the weather has been like this on this weekend. It's usually sunny & warm, just what I need.
You are missed more than you would ever imagine. I still can't make sense of why you were taken so soon. I'm thankful for the short time you were here and that you made me a part of your life. We will meet again, one day.

Thinking about you, it's approaching Memorial Day, so we went to the cemetery today. Your grave site is covered with things as always. It's obvious that you were and are very loved. Your dad was there mowing. He spends a lot of time there in general. I think you took a piece of all of our hearts when you left. So many things going on in life but you are still thought of, remembered and loved. You were so proud to be a Marine; I loved your stories. Thank you for your service. I'll always carry you in my heart.

I was thinking about Jerry and what a good honest person, he was. I think about him several times through out the year. I thought I would post on his memorial wall, just out of respect. Rest in peace brother.

JANUARY 20, 1915:
Jerry, it's been over 5 years and I still miss you every day.
you are always in my thoughts and my heart.
The Holidays are not the same without you. I think of so
many things that you have said and done, and it's hard to
believe that I won't hear them anymore. I miss the sound
of your voice, your laugh and your stories.
Some friends of ours, you never met them are in Titusville
and they went to the Police Hall of Fame and Museum, they
took pictures of the wall with your name on it and e-mailed
them to Pastor Art, I'm anxious to see them.
I love you and always will.
Till I see you again, love Mom

Happy birthday!!! I wish with all my heart that we could be celebrating together. I often wonder where we would be in our lives. So many plans & dreams we looked forward to in our future. I try so hard not to dwell. I feel like I'm constantly taking a few steps forward & a few steps back. I really don't know what's "right" with how to get my life moving forward and anticipating the future. It really doesn't help that people like to discuss everything I do and come up with some things that aren't even true. We didnt choose for this to happen, and I know you wouldn't want me stuck in limbo. You are missed more than you could ever imagine. Time doesnt heal the wounds it only makes it easier to cope. You are never forgotten. im so thankful for you & your family.
Love always

Sweetheart, it doesn't seem possible that it has been five years since you left us. We miss you so much. There has
been so much happen since I last wrote to you. Grandpa
Shepherd passed away January 9th. I'm sure you already
knew that. Chris and Erica lost twins in January also. Aunt Masel, Aunt Ola, and Aunt Madalene went home to be with
the Lord. On the 13th. several of your officer friends came to the cemetery and brought flowers. Jeffrey prayed the most beautiful prayer. Then the police department
unveiled the "Wall of Honor". with your likeness in the center. There will be plaques of former officers placed on the wall as well. Eric Johnson, Chief Webster. Mayor Jones
and your brother Mike spoke. There was a reception afterwards. It was very nice.

In November will be the parole hearing for Natasha Light,
We will be there as we were last year. I have forgiven her, because I knew that as a Christian I had to do that for my own healing, I will never forget what she and Brian Good took from us. I'm not sure if she will be paroled, I just want her to admit to what she did, instead blaming it on
drugs and Brian Good. We love you so very much, we miss you every day and will never get over losing you.
Love, Mom
Oh, I forgot to tell you, Chris and Erica are expecting in
December, it's a little girl, Zoe Ireland Jones

Cousin Jerry

I can't believe it has been 5 years the lord called you home. I think about you every single day. There is not a day goes by that someone ask me about you or how is everyone doing. You are sadly missed by every one. Tell Grandpa Shepherd that we are doing ok and we all said hi.

Love and Miss you

You're always in my thoughts, but I'm thinking of you extra today. 7.26.08 <3!! You are always loved and missed. Time eases the pain but there are always wounds. So many things I wish we had the opportunity to experience together. If I could change the outcome, I would in a heart beat. Sadly, if I could replay and go back to before your death, I'd go through all of the pain and hurt just to really soak up that time and make the very best of it. You're always in my heart <3

DOGS AND COMPANIONS. ROSCOE ALSO DIED. KELLEY AND GREG MISS HIM SO MUCH. HOPE AND MATT GRADJUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL WITH HONORS, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN SO PROUD OF THEM. HOPE IS GOING TO MARSHALL AND MATT IS GOING TO ATTEND WV TECH.
ERIC JOHNSON SPOKE AT THE FBI MEMORIAL SERVICE THIS
YEAR, WE WENT TO THAT AND HAD LUNCH WITH HIM AFTER
WARDS. HE IS IN UNDERCOVER AND REALLY LOOKS DIFFIRENT. DAD HAD HIS SECOND ANEURISM OPERATED ON TODAY, HE HAD THE FIRST ONE TAKEN CARE OF IN MAY. HE
IS DOING REAL WELL. WE SPENT PART OF THE DAY WITH
CHRIS AND IRENE, THEY ARE EXPECTING A BABY IN AUGUST. CHRIS AND ERICA ARE EXPECTING IN DECEMBER,
THEY LOST TWINS IN JANUARY, THEY TOOK IT REALLY HARD.
ANDY IS WORKING FOR AEP AS A LINEMAN, HE REALLY LIKES
IT. I GUESS I WILL CLOSE FOR NOW. HONEY I LOVE YOU

I heard your story today..I attended the Fallen West Virginia Law Enforcement Officers Memorial today with some of my fellow co-workers, and the man who spoke of you Lt. Eric Johnson spoke beautiful, heart felt words about you. Thank you for your sacrifice, although the circumstances were not the best, I still thank you and remember you. I'm thankful I was able to learn your story today.
