Its been 12 years since I have posted and i cant begin to tell you how much life has brought change in that time. Witch is the one thing we are guaranteed to have happen in life. There have been so many ups and downs and as my birthday come up the one thing that keeps repetitively passing through my mind is that I will be 1 year shy of the amount of years you spent on this earth with us. As I reflect on my life thus far I can't say that I've made the same impacts you had made in the time that you spent here. In that short time you where an honorable hard-working man who cherished everything good in life. You loved my mother unconditionally y'all's relationship was admired by everyone that came in contact with y'all. You loved Matt and I endlessly then you ended up giving your life selflessly. I want to let you know that you are and always will be the type of man I Inspire to be. Thank you Dad for everything you did for us all the love you showed us I know you're smiling down as you sit by God and watch his master plan unfold I cant wait to see you again untill then i am going to make better effort cherishing the people left behind by you that you love so endlessly life gets so busy and we take things for granted and none of us are guaranteed to be here tomorrow. that is is the last lesson that you we're able to teach me and probably the most profound lesson I've learned thus far yet but don't take heed to it nearly as often as I should I love you Dad talk to you later say hi to Grandpa for me tell him I miss him and love him so much.

Once again, I'm here at my desk thinking of you. I'm having one of those down in the dumps moments. Since Dad went to be with Jesus I'm having more of those kind of moments now. I know that God will continue to sustain me, I just take my focus off of Him from time to time. That's when satan steps in and tries to use that to disrupt and discourage me. I guess it's one of those battles that will continue till the Lord calls me home. The good thing is, it's a small battle. I've already won the war because Jesus Christ is my Savior. so I'll keep on fighting the good fight and finish my race. I just miss you and Dad so so much. But I know he is so full of joy being reunited with you and Uncle Bob. He missed you so much and was so proud of you. Well I guess I'll go and get some work done. LOL! I love you brother and miss you and Dad every single day. Till we meet again.

Just sitting at my desk thinking about you. I find myself doing that from time to time. And when I see Matthew in uniform it takes my breath away because he resembles you so much. The way he carries himself and his passion for the job sounds just like you. The older I get the more I think about and miss you. I really miss the conversations we never got to have. Anyway, just missing you big brother. On a separate note, I want to thank everyone who as left a reflection on my brother's memorial. Speaking for the Allman family, we really do appreciate it very much. God bless everyone and until we meet again big brother. I love you.

hey uncle James, weird how Im sitting at work and then you pop into my head. been 8 years since my last post. one thing I wanted to say, was Uncle Tim did a amazing job at the fallen officer memorial, brought tears to my eyes when he placed the hat infront of your picture. and you know how mama is she loves touching your name on that wall. james and matt are doing really good, matt is doing good in college and james is working hard, they even live ogether still. I wonder what our family would be like if you were still here with us today. I have a son now, he's two his name is Bentley, he loves cars!! I cant wait to see you again, love you so much!

Our prayers are still with your family as they are now 20yrs. in dealing with your passing. As we arrived on the scene, we all realized that there was nothing we could do as you had gone to be with the Lord in an instant. It was tough call for all of us that night.
Stay safe.

Happy Birthday brother!!! You would have been 48yrs old today!!
Wow!!! How time flies. I can see you right now with gray hair and me making fun of that gray hair and you trying put me in a head lock or something of that nature in I do miss those times. I was talking to Matt yesterday and we started talking about how you used to pick on me when we were!!! As much as I hated my big brother picking on me, I still knew that you wouldn't anyone hurt me. I find myself wishing I could get your opinion on situations that I get into at work or with our family sometimes. You were always able to quickly figure out a problem and know what action to take. Oh, I think you would be happy that as of July 14th I will have been with the sheriff's dept for TEN long I love you and miss you sooo much brother. I am so thankful that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ blessed our lives by making us brothers here on earth. What a perfect God He is!!! Hallelujah!!! I love you James. See you when I get there.

I love you and miss you brother. It's good to see the kids writing to you. It goes to show just how much of an impact you had on all the people you came in contact with. I still wish I could've had more time to spend with you, but that was not what Jesus had planned, which is good because God is good and He always knows what is best. His timing is perfect just as He is. I love you

Hey James, remember me? I was at Central Intake forever and finally got out of there. I left after 13 years and joined the DART Police Dept. I ran into your brother not to long ago trying to get some breakfast at IHOP, great guy. His spirit really reminds me of you. You are truly missed and I think about you often. Till I see you next time keep watching over us.

Hi Uncle James,
It's been a while since I talked to you last. Quite a bit has changed, I am now 17 and a junior at Northwest, I am a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA), I am going to PROM this year. I am pretty excited about that. You would be proud of my mom, she is in Nursing School, and doing very well. We all miss you very much, and wish you were here with us every day. We wish you were here out of selfishness, because we know you are in a much better place, than we are. I think in a way we are jealous of you, because are with God and we're still here. But that's ok, we'll get over it. I better go, so I can lean the dishes before mom gets home. I love you, miss you, and can;t wait 'til I get to see you again.
