Chris, you are thought about daily. Deputy Cosper is now with you. I ask that you look upon his family and bring some relief to them as I know the pain they are feeling. The pain is still there. I wish I could help take some of it away from them as I hate the thought of knowing what they are going through. I know you are still looking out for me and our family. I miss you little brother. I know you are proud of your niece, Kyra Lee and I want all to know she is proud of you and especially having your middle name.

Finally justice prevailed and this hero can now be at rest. And his family also may find peace knowing the killer of their husband, father, brother, sister all of them may finally find some sense of peace now that the man who took their loved one is no longer a threat to anyone anymore. God bless him and I shall share his story with everyone I know. God bless him and his family.

Justice delayed is not justice denied, but is very agonizing. The murderer of Deputy Castetter was executed tonight and I hope it will help family, co-workers and friends a little closer to closure. I salute you Deputy for you will FOREVER be a hero and will NEVER be forgotten!

I never got to meet you but you save my life everyday. Your badge number is displayed on my car window in remembrance and I look at it each time I start my watch. Your death was not in vain because everytime I look at it, I remember Officer Safety and treat every call as if someone is out to hurt me. I am thankful that God has given me the wisdom to understand this. Rest in Peace brother, and one day I will thank you in person.
