I was trained by one of your field training officer's at North East who in turn told me what a great person you were. He also taught me how to be as safe as possible working freeway accidents or calls and to never turn my back on traffic. Your story is very encouraging and as a brother Officer, you will never be forgotten by me. RIP.

I was in the 6th grade at Northlake elementary in Dallas when a police officer that was giving a presentation told us about Sunny Lov's death. The officer said that Officer Luv was Cambodian and a good officer. Although I didn't know Officer Lov personally, I felt very proud to have someone like him represent us well in the Dallas PD. Because of officers like Sunny Lov, I also chose the path of law enforcement. Rest of Peace Officer Luv

Hi Uncle Sunny,
I never got the chance to meet you but heard a lot about you. You have a wonderful family and I love spending time in Texas. It makes me feel like I am home, happy and safe.
Your children are just fantastic and Aunty Kieu is like my second Mom. Hope everything is good where you are...

Sunny will always be my friend,He was the most gentle soul I have ever known.It took about a year working side by side with Sunny to share anything,but once he did I met a man I would never forgrt.we laughed about his mother jumping out of his boat and swiming to shore one day he said when she wants to do something she just does it.I got to know most of Sunny's family living next door and adored all of them. I Miss you sunny Friend/Teacher

I miss you so much! Thanks for being the leader and bringing our family here to the US - our new home. I am so grateful to have had you as my uncle and mentor. You would be proud of how Aunty Kiev and your children have grown to be - especially your oldest son. He has so much characterics like you - very smart and brave. It was very difficult, of course, without your physcial presence for them, but I know spiritually you were, are and will be very near to our family.

With much Love and Respect, your niece

"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.

Sunny, you made running Bachman Lake so much more enjoyable during training. I remember you finishing the run (some 3.1 miles in 6.0 minutes per mile) and then running back to where us girls were and finishing again with us just to make us run a little bit faster. I also remember the time you single handedly disarmed a gang member of his rifle by walking up behind him and doing your "asian stuff" as you called it, during a gang fight.

You, my classmate and friend, were fearless. You will always be remembered and revered as one who we will NEVER FORGET. I am honored to be called your classmate and you friend.
