Reflections for Police Officer Eric D. Lee

Hi Eric,

I haven't typed here in a while but I speak to you every day! I know that you're smiling and that you see all that our angel is accomplishing. This is one of the proudest times right now and I'm so thankful for the time we shared together as a family. Keep watching over us and I pray that all the hard work and dedication you poured into our little lady will continue to prevail.

Love you much

Today is National Law Enforcement Memorial Day and on this day I salute you for your heroism and dedication to law enforcement. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and those still out on patrol in the City. You have not been forgotten.

Officer Lee,
After reading your memorial it makes me proud to wear the badge. You were obviously unselfish and truely believed in the Protect and Serve motto. You, sir, are a true HERO, and will never be forgotten. To your family, even though I did not personally know Eric, although I wish I had, I promise to strive to be the best officer I can be, just like I know Eric was. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace Brother in Blue.

Today I received the most well written birthday card from our daughter! She is such a talented and beautiful young lady and I can't thank God enough for you for giving her to me! I know that you are always with us and I just wanted to say thank you again my sweet gentle giant! Thank you for the wonderful years we've shared, the blessings God gave to us and most of all thank you for being the wonderful and outstanding man you were!

Hugs and Kisses,

Hey Eric,

Happy Belated Birthday.

I remembered it - just got busy. Time is really going by fast. You should see Miss E. She is such the lady now. How I wish you could have seen her grow up. I see Shawn stops by often to visit you. I will give her a kiss for you next time I see her.

We will never forget you.

The ribbon cutting ceremony finally arrived and Gold Star Family Memorial and Park is breath taking! I was so proud to see your name as well as all the fallen officers engraved on the wall! Yes, it's like DC's Memorial but is so classy.

There will be no better place to come and reflect, it's so peaceful!

I'm so proud of you and love you much!

Yes, mom and pops were there too!

Love ya,

It would be 13 years on 9-11-06! I miss you so much...God broke the mold with you Sweetie for sure! Rest and keep watching over us always! I love you and thank God for you each and every day.

I visit you every day here and it always get's me so full to read all the beautiful and wonderful things people tell about your life...the work life I didn't fully understand but with your true friends, I get a better understanding daily.

You have two only sons named after you...that is amazing and such a blessing.

Love you much,

five years later I still think of that awful Sunday night, but remember all our conversations on first watch on 731 and smile about all the fun we had working. You and Andre were my first partners and I'll never forget you. I'm not in Chicago anymore, but you are always with me. I miss you bro. By the way, I named my only son after you.

To the family and loved ones of Officer Eric D. Lee and his fellow officers with the Chicago Police Department:

On this the fifth anniversary of Eric's tragic death, I wanted to honor and remember him today. Eric's professionalism and dedication will never be forgotten, nor will his valor and courage.

I also salute his patriotism to our country through his service in the Corps. My beloved son Larry Lasater is his brother in green as well as in blue and I know all those Marines have things squared away.

In reading the loving reflections left by his family, friends and co-workers I can see that he was very well respected and is sorely missed. The devotion his wife expresses is also to be admired. I hope that God is holding him in the sweetest part of his heart and the most gentle part of his soul.

I am so sorry that Eric was robbed of his life so tragically, but through his heroism and the profound sense of duty with which he lived his life, he made an immeasurable difference. May his spirit continue to soar and may his memory continue to inspire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Eric gave to his community and the citizens of Illinois, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 19, 2001.

It will be five years tomorrow ... you're not forgotten.

There are no words left to describe what I feel! There is no way to understand the pain, hurt, anger, grief and agony that I have endured and your family and friends! I especially want you to know that your angel is doing great and realizing the impact of your absence daily. It's so very hard to explain what I feel, what we feel but I know that you see us all the time. I will always love you, heck you will always have my heart...until we are together again...your love shines in my life!

Love always,


August 16, 2006

It will be 5 years that your were taken away from your loved ones. I know the tears still flow and there is not a day that goes by that they don't think of you. In September they will be dedicating the new Chicago Police Memorial where your name will forever be engraved with honor. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten. My thoughts are with your family on August 19th which I know is a very hard day to get through. Keep watch over your loved ones and those CPD officers still out on patrol.

I know you saw your baby today singing and playing the piano with passion and grace. I am so proud of her and all of her many accomplishments. We miss you but know that you were there the entire time smiling and boasting on your angel!

Love and miss you

Thank you for giving to me the biggest blessing of them all...our daughter! It's truly the best Mother's Day gift I can ever have. Through all the pain, the hurt and confusion, I realize that the time I've had with you is truly what God intended and from that our daughter who is now 11 was born! I love you and thank you always!

Sweetie, tonight would be your 25th high school reunion! Leo is hosting a dinner and you will be honored for all the many wonderful things you have contributed! I love you much and there isn't a day that goes by Eric that I don't think about you or even speak of you! Saying I miss you would truly be an understatement!

I read on of the entries and someone said, "When God made you Eric, he broke the mold"! That is so very true honey...until we are together you much!
