I’m sitting here watching old reruns of Walker Texas Ranger remembering how much you loved the show. Ashley is good. I believe she’s finally found a good man. She has given us 5 beautiful grandsons. Kevin is almost 19 years old, Ky is 17, Derrick is almost 14, and a set of twins, Tristan and Jasper are 6. Thanks for looking over them. Miss you still today and wish you were here to see the kids grow up.

As a truck driver the troopers get a bad name. When in reality they are just doing there job to keep the highways safe! As I drove down 37 I had to look up what happened!(of course I’m parked now). My condolences to the family and friends and may his killer rot in jail for the rest of his life!!!

Knew Terry when he was with San Patricio SO. I was with Ingleside PD and received a silent alarm @ 2:30 am @ the VFW. Terry was there to help search and arrest two individuals who had broken in. I can say this without question, Terry always had a positive attitude, and I knew I could depend on him always. I knew his future wife who worked at Feudo's food store in Portland, and the two of them could not be a better match. Both great people. The good Lord must have needed the very best when he took Terry, there could not have been a better human being in this world. When I pass his memorial sign on I37 I remember how much I enjoyed his friendship and what a great law enforcement officer he was. God bless your soul Terry.

I thank all the men and women in law enforcement. Their job is so difficult and they do not get the respect that they deserve any longer. I thank them emphatically for the sacrifice they make every single day that they CHOOSE to serve and protect. My heart goes out to the fallen and their love ones. May those left behind be cognizant that their loved one’s life and the ultimate sacrifice they made was greatly appreciated. R.I.P.

Trooper Miller took my place when I transfered to a different duty station. Deputy Stephenson was my friend and worked together while i was there. I remember that night so well as I saw it on the news as it was happening off duty, but uniformed up and sped down there. Gunfire still going on as I arrived not knowing that my friends were already gone. I will never forget that night, my thoughts are still with the faminly's.

I was 13 the day you were killed. I lived in the county you protected. I remember waking up and watching the news and my Mom was crying. We didn't know you, but we appreciated your protection and sacrifice you made daily. I'm now 30 years old and a US Marshal for 9 years. I'm stationed in San Diego and we just lost a SDPD Officer this week. You and your family have been on my mind. Rest in Peace. You're not forgotten.
