Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Lee Wimberly, Sr.

Thinking of you today Ken. Proud to have worked alongside you for several years. Your spirit and smile were both one of a kind. I still remember you dancing for hours at my wedding reception. So much so, that my grandmother often called me in the months that followed with one singular question: "How's the dancer?" I miss you my friend and pray that we meet again.

I can’t believe it’s been 21 years since you left us Ken. It’s Father’s Day weekend and you came to mind. I sometimes wonder how different Kenisha and lil Ken’s lives would be if you were still here with us. I hope you watch over them and continue to be their guardian angel. That small voice of reason and comfort when they need you, missing you, wanting to talk to you. You are still loved and missed Ken and fond memories of you keep you here with us. Happy Father’s Day....

I did not have the chance to know you while you were still with us, as though I had not arrived in this beautiful and cruel world. My father, Former Corporal Matthew Lee Warren, on the other hand he have the chance know you very well, as though he was your partner, your brother in arms. My father once told me, that the day you were no longer with us, that he was escorted to a room, where he was stripped of his gun, because they were bringing your assailant into the county jail. After he was stripped of his weapon, he was told about your ascent to heaven, he then told me that he collapsed and that was the last thing he remembers. I wish to someday meet you, once I have made the journey of leaving this Earth and ascending to the heavens, whether that be leaving my family and friends too soon, like you or becoming to the symptoms of old age, which rightfully had earned to the fullest, but was stripped from your grasp. I will one day meet you in the heavens, where all of our family, friends and pets have made the journey of life and ascended to the heavens. Rest in Peace and in Jesus' name, amen.

Ken, we knew each other for only 4 years but we built so many laughs and memories. You are one of a kind. I will never forget when our friends called me to tell me what happened- another memory etched into my brain. What I choose to remember is your laughter and infectious smile- even when crazy became crazier at work. I know your in such an amazing place and we will meet again. Until then my friend.

Big Ken, It's been 17 years to this very date, on the exact day that my whole world changed and I guess as I continue to shed tears today the heavens are crying with me because it's raining. You are missed, loved, reflected on and remembered every day and will continue to be until the Lord calls me home. I love you and miss you very much. You are and forever will be my HERO!!!

While I never knew you and I have no affiliation with any law enforcement agency, I was reading about you and your story today at the Gwinnett County Jail. For some reason it really touched my heart and soul. You were taken away from your family and career at such a young age. However, you were doing what you were trained to do...law enforcement. I simply would like to thank you for your military service to our country and your service as a officer with the Gwinnett County Police Department. May you Rest In Peace in Heaven and may you get to see your family again one day in Heaven. Thanks again for your service.

Well cousin you have been on my mind a lot these past few weeks. I recently began a career in corrections(I know right,lol).I remember teasing you about your big sheriff boots that you use to wear and how ugly they were...now i have to have a pair! I thought that you would have gotten a kick out of that. I wish you were here to answer the million questions that i have,but I guess I have to be a big girl and do it on my own. I was so nervous the first couple of days,but i just kept hearing your voice in my head, cracking jokes and encouraging me to go forward. We sure do miss you down here.

Ken you were one of the funniest and amazing men that i have had the pleasure to know. You were what all of us kids wanted to be like. I just realized that i am one year older than you were when you passed. I hope that i have achieved enough in this time to fill a small portion of the huge shoes you left for me to fill. I am so proud of you and for the man that you were. I wish my kids had a chance to meet their cousin Ken, my middle son is a smart mouth jokester just like you! Im sure they would have loved you as much as i did.

Where do I start unc? I woke up this morning and something just told me to Google your name. I immediately began to scanning a few sites, and might I add, the Internet is filled with articles with a brief bio and recollections of the incident that claimed your earthly life, until I clicked on this site. When I saw all these reflections I couldn't help but cry. I'm crying now at this very moment. It's astonishing to see how much of an impact you have on so many lives outside of our family. So many loved you unc it's unbelievable. You are truly my hero. And I when I leave this place. I want to be remembered just as you are. I love you unc!!!!

My thoughts are of you and all of your loved ones today. Justice was not served in my opinion concerning the punishment of the individual who caused so much pain to those that love you. They have to live with their loss forever. Continue to watch over them. You are a true hero and heroes never die. You have not been forgotten.

No one knows what I go through each and every day. Only God knows the day and the hour and missing you is the hardest thing in the world to cope with. Yes, it will be 14 years ago September 22, 1998, but the pain is still there. We (your family) miss you so much, it is unbearable. Gone but never forgotten. Out of sight, but never out of mind.
Love u Bro
