Reflections for Sergeant Robert Brandon Paudert


Just wanted to stop in and let you know we think about you daily. It is hard to beleive that you and Bill have been gone almost a year. Just know you are in a much better place and we know you may not be here physically with us, but you are always in our hearts. With lots of love.

There is not a day that goes by that Jeremy does not think about you and Bill. I talk to your cousin Deann Paudert every now and then. You are missed very much by all your family and friends. But, we know that you and Bill are in a much better place. We love you both and think about both of ya'll all the time.

What a terrible loss of these two fine interdiction officers. My thoughts are with your family and friends of the West Memphis Police department. We will carry the torch from here and continue our fight on illegal drugs.

RIP Sgt Paudert and Officer Evans. This video is making its rounds on YouTube which hopefully will bring some needed attention to "sovereign citizens", weapons traffickers and routine traffic stops. In this day and age, NO traffic stop should be routine. Thank you for your service Sgt Paudert and Officer Evans.

Just watched the dashcam video and news clips of your shooting and the deaths of your assailants. Thank you brother for your dedication and service. My thoughts and prayers and with your family and the West Memphis Police Department. Rest easy, brother; we've got it from here.

Sgt. Paudert,

I remember when this took place and have just watched the dash cam of this horrific incident. It sent chills down my spine because how many times have we all conducted "routine traffic stops"? I hope you are in a better place now and look down on your fellow officers.

I miss you. It breaks my heart to know you're gone.
Watch over us from there, ok? Keep Bill in line and don't give God's secretary the hard time you gave me (unless, of course, she knows you're joking just as I did).

"When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be.
When we all see Jesus,
We'll sing and shout the victory!"

You are loved and missed.

Mrs. Paudert, I cannot begin to know the depth of the pain you and your family feel. I only know that my heart hurts for your loss. I also know that there are many of us wearing badges across the nation and even the world who share your pain at your loss. May God comfort you and please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers daily.

As I sit down to write this letter, I am in awe. I am in awe of the Lord and of all of you who have supported my family during this tragedy. I am truly amazed, honored, and blown away by all of the cards, letters, and support you have given.
I can’t begin to explain how cards from those I didn’t even know touched my heart. In the past, I have thought that no one would know or want me to visit during the most painful times in their lives. I thought that they wouldn’t even know I was there. I thought that I would just pray for them. Because of all of you, my mind has changed. However, prayer is what my family still needs most. What I mean to say is that I will send that card or word of encouragement every time. It has really made a vast difference for me.
I thought that I would be able to write individual, personal thank you cards. However, it soon became apparent that this would be an impossible task!! So, I want to thank all of you publicly for your support of Bill and Brandon’s families. I am truly honored by all of you.
In addition, I would like to thank every officer from all over the country that chose to honor my husband with their show of support. Brandon would have truly, truly been moved. I am sure that he watched from above with pure amazement.
The West Memphis Police Department has become my family. Please know that you all have someone with “connections” praying for each of you every day, while you carry out the duty and service that comes with being a police officer. Thank you for all that you have done. I thank you for continuing to protect us all, even in the midst of this tragedy.
Words cannot express, what love has shown… Please know that I am strengthened by the Lord and the words of encouragement which have so ministered to me. Even though I don’t know the plan, I know God has one. I trust that the Lord will walk beside me and carry me when I can’t walk. My warrior, Brandon, will be right there, always at peace and secure with our Lord.

May God give the families, friends, and survivors the strength needed to endure this evil and loss. None of you will ever be quite the same. May his example of service inspire others to take his place on the front lines.
