Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Kurt Brian Wyman

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Brother, Two years ago today I began my shift with you. Never ever did I think that our shift would end the way it did. And today I am working another shift, but this time without you. It's a rainy night and a really weird feeling is in the air. I think about you always, but tonight is pretty tough since this is the exact same shift that we worked when we went to that call. I'm sad tonight, but very proud that I was given the honor of knowing you, training you, and working with you. So thank you. 188 will never be forgotten. Rip my friend.

Well buddy, I just left work and was thinking about you. They are all good thoughts. It is kind of lonesome there in the office at night sometimes, then I see you face on that big photo in the hallway. It brings a smile to my face when I see it. I miss ya Kurt :(

Deputy Wyman,
It is with sadness that I remember when you were killed. My heart ached for your wife and soon-to-be born daughter. I was worried about your friends and coworkers.
I have shared some emails with your brave and noble partner Deputy Chrysler. I know how very much he misses you. I know he carries pain but he is so very proud of you. I picture him beaming with a bright smile when he talks about you. Please remind him he did all he could.
Your service in the Corps and as a Deputy is a sacred service you gave. Something took you too soon from us. Evil took you too soon. My prayer is that you, God and our fallen Heroes walking Heaven's beat (including my dad) watch over your family, Deputy Chrysler and all who miss you.
I can't wait to meet you one day... I've heard such good things about you.
Thank you Sir for your sacrifice trying to keep others safe.

Hi Kurt. The one year reflection I left must not have gone through, so please know that you were in my heart that day and I was thinking of you like I always do. I know you have met Deputy Bellar, and are taking good care of him. Just wanted to say hi and ask that you don't be mad at me for telling friends and remembering some of the stories and adventures that we had during FTO. I miss you. I wish I could have done more that night. I know it was out of my control, but I feel like I let you down. Thanks for your forgiveness and Just keep smiling because that is what is keeping me going!

It is difficult for me to comprehend how to designate the anniversary of a tragic situation..Through somewhat strange yet oddly timed circumstances, I became aware of the story of Deputy Wyman on this the 1 year anniversary of losing him and I just wanted to wish the family comfort on this day.


June 7, 2012

This 1 year anniversary is such a difficult one. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you remember Kurt and celebrate everything he has given you.
