I remember those years ago before that drunk driver took your life. I remember we used to sit in traffic court and talk about the different drunk drivers we had apprehended. We would compare notes to make each other better at what we were doing. You are gone but you are definitely not forgotten.

It will be 23 years and it feels like yesterday. I miss my sister that I confided in on several occasions. I miss your smile and your laugh. Thank you for always protecting our highways from drunk drivers. You will NEVER be forgotten. We have your watch. Blessed Are The Peacemakers. I am BETTER NOT BROKEN. Love You little sis.

We barely knew each other but you captured my brother's heart and that made you wonderful in my eyes. My husband and I have taken our children several times to Washington to view the wall where they can pay their respects and also remember all that you gave. I think of you often and when I talk about you, Kim-there is always pride in my voice that you were my sister in law. Our entire family will never forget you, never quit talking about you and never stop appreciating everything you did for society and for all that you gave my brother. You really are wonderful.

You were a true heroine, Trooper Hurd. I have visited the cemetery where you are buried. Metro-Dade Officer Joseph P. Martin is buried in the St. Matthew section. Rest in peace. Your valor and courage will never be forgotten. The person who took your young life, a former police officer should not only be ashamed, he should spend the rest of his life in a jail cell for what he committed against you, your department and your loving family.

It's been 18 years, Kim. The world was a better place when you were in it. You are missed by all of us who were privileged to have know you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 18th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

I remember when we decided to try to break into the upper eschelon of society. To do this we needed to hob-nob with the upper crust. Boy! That day you hobbed so many nobs, there were no hobs left to knob!

We met in May 1986, we stared with 60 and ended with 48. You were so young in the Academy, you couldn't buy a back-up weapon and how we laughed. Both of us were happy when the day came and they announced our post of duty. We were assigned to Broward together. We became FTO's in 2 years. I left for USCS but always was in contact. If I saw you on the midnight shift I would stop and we talked. You and Mike rode on the USCS boat just before you were taken.

I remember that night like it was yesterday. I was at home and Mike called and I did not want to know. I was less than 1/2 mile away from you at the time. I never got to say goodbye.

I look to the side of the road every time I pass that spot. I miss you almost every day.

You......Kim Boltz.......were a fellow Trooper, a fellow classmate, but most of all my friend. You are missed by so many.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Fifteen years may have passed, however my memory of you will never fade. You will always have a special place in my heart.

Kimberly, after all this time you have not been forgotten. The loss of such a giving and dedicated Trooper still hurts. Little did I know, when I attended your viewing, that I would lose my young neice & nephew to a drunk driver 5 years later.

I will always have a place for you in my heart for all the work you did to get drunk drivers off the highways.

May you rest in peace. June 2007
