Reflections for Chief of Police Cecil F. Gurr

I was one of Cecil's Officer's back in the early 80's. I still have such vivid and loving memories of my days at Roosevelt PD. I tried for so long to get hired as a Police Officer and Cecil finally brought me on board. I will never forget working for him. Rest in peace my friend.

Its been almost 15 years since I last looked into your eyes. It seems like a whole life ago but at the same time It was just yesterday. I miss you so!
The UPOA honored you this past weekend in Moab Utah. The fallen Hero ATV Trail hosts an event each year honoring 14 of Utah’s Hero’s. You were one of the chosen this year. The ATV ride was so much fun. Thanks to your father, all 17 members of the family were able to attend. I’m so thankful you are not forgotten in the Law enforcement community. Our Children have done well and I know you are as proud of them as I am. We had a great weekend with the grandkids. You are alive in them. We are proud of the heritage you have given us. We love and miss you more than words can say.
As always

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

I remember going to visit you, Lynette and uncle Beryl and aunt Frankie as a child. You and your dad always had a presence of goodness to your ora. I got to see your dad as an adult but missed getting the chance to see you. Have lots of love for you and your family. I know you will always be missed but never forgotten. Proud to have such a hero for my cousin.

Chief. I miss you. I miss you making our ways into the ways along the green river, freezing, but we got to feel like how it felt to wait and work hard. YOU taught me that Cecil.

.... I wish we could talk like we use to... conversations with you these days seem so one sided... there is such a hole in me without you, I'm so sad that you can't hug my girls, they have been cheated. I miss you...

Thank you Hero for your long and dedicated service to both your Country and Law Enforcement. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones and close friends. I'll end with this quote from "Norton":

"Those we hold most dear never truly leave us.
They live on in the kindness they showed, the comfort
They shared and the love they brought into our lives."

Dear Papa Bear-
I miss you like crazy. I wish so bad for you sometimes. There is so much to tell you, and so much I wish I could show you. I am sure you would be surprised at how much loosing you has changed me. I wish I could have been better about it, but I felt destroyed right down to the core. I know you came to K's Eagle Scout program, and I can't tell you how much that meant to me. I have mixed feelings about it, because if I would have known, I would have liked for you to see more of yourself in our lives- but I am glad I didn't insert it because I knew for sure you came and it wasn't me projecting it. I think you would be so proud of our boy. I bet you have helped him. I hope so, and I am counting on it in the future. As I am with my other kids. I am amazed at the feelings I remember and how I just know for sure how I would feel if I could see you now. I miss you- I miss your smiling face and quiet comfort. I loved how you laughed, but tried to hide it. I love remembering you whistle through your teeth. I loved how you loved my son- The blankie rides, the cop outfits, the spoiling... I knew it was a rare thing, you were amazing with my kids. I love you so much. Thank you for all you have done for me ~for all you contributed to my life and my future. You were all that a girl could ever hope to have in a pop. I know you are in a far better place, but I miss you very much. Happy Father's Day, Sugar Bear

I remember when you took me to my first apartment, I cried when I saw your tears. I didn't really know what it meant to "move out". Things change and sometimes the change is just change. But this change is more than I can handle some days. I wish I could remember your visits. Maybe you could wake me next time?

Dad, Wish you could play with the kids, Aubrielle is growing so fast. She is amazing, just like her big sister.

Cambrielle sent you a letter for memorial day, we hope the balloons carried them up to you. I am having a hard time convincing her that she really is not ready to come visit you and Jesus, but she still tells me all the time that she wants to go visit you and Jesus in the sky. I think of you daily, even though my methods of remembering are not always traditional ones.

Tonight marks 9 years without you. Why does it seem as though a hundred years have passed? This journey without you has been colored with many blessings, challenges, and growth.
The family is well. All the kids are handling their own challenges with grace and honor. You taught them well. Im so pleased with the respect they have earned in their own communities. We are growing, our 10th g/child is on the way—but Im sure you already know that.
I still miss you so much. 123
