It is over! No more court appearances, do not have to look at his face again. Some think that he got off easy. But that is ok. It is over! There will never be closure. You can't have closure because you are not here. I will love and miss you till the day I die!❤

Lorraine it was so good to see your name on Matt's page. Thank you for sharing your sweet thoughts for Matt and I on your precious Don's day. The memory of our precious sons is all that keeps us going some days. I know they make sure that they are always close to us in every thing we do. Both such good men, joys to us as their mommas.

Much love to you,
Matt's Mom

Rest in peace Deputy Sheriff Bond. A real hero! Shooting a man nine times and stealing his vest?This world is surely a mean and ugly place at times to live and thrive.

I have thought of you and your Mom all week, so sorry I didn't post on the actual day, and then I got on Matt's page this morning and there your Mom was thinking of us. My heart understands your Mom's words completely. We could have told you a million times how much we love, loved, you.....and we did, but oh to be able to tell you that again to your beautiful faces. What precious, wonderful sons you were.

Thinking of you and your Mom with love.

I love you so much. I miss you so much. You were so happy with the way your life was going. There are no words to write how I feel. I think of you every day and wonder what might have been. Edward and his family do fill some of my days, but we all miss you so much. I am so proud of you and I wish I had told you this more when you were with us, but I always told you I loved you.
Until then........

You're remembered so frequently. To this day, I never hear someone say, "I'm just proud to be here" that I don't smile to myself and think of you. You're missed, old friend.

Love and miss you a lot. Today I think of the last time I talked with you and the last time I saw you. I replay over in my mind that morning when I had that knock on my door and my life changed forever. We miss you so much.

Love you, Mom Lorraine Bond

Today it has been 15 years. Just seems like yesterday. I love and miss you. Each time of the year my heart is "breaking again", but some day soon this all will pass away and there will be love, joy and peace and we all will see our loved ones again. Until then........

This is an emotional day for this county, remembering all our hero's that have given the "ultimate sacrifice".
Over 20,000 have died for our community and country.

I miss you. Sometimes it is so hard to take another step knowing that I can't talk with you or see you. We miss you so much. I think of you every day. But one day soon we will all be together again. There are so many tears today.
Love and miss you so much!

Merry Christmas, will again miss you so much this Christmas. Still, at times my mind does not want to accept it. See you soon.
Love you so much!

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for all the Lord has provided for us and I want to thank Him for giving me Don for a short time. He is loved and missed so much.

I was a rookie that year with the HCSO and had just started training. I can remember it like it was yesterday. You are missed but never forgotten, thank you for your service.

Happy Birthday!
I love and miss you every day!

Your mom is always so faithful to stop in and remember Matt; as a mother she understands not having our precious son with us here on earth. The pain and disbelief is always in our lives; thankfully so is the love that was given to us because of the sons we were blessed to have.

Thinking of you Lorraine and your dear son Kenneth.

Christmas Eve - this is the first Christmas in 13 years I have put up a Christmas Tree. It is still not the same, I remember you having to work on Christmas Eve and sleeping a little while and getting up to spend Christmas with us.
We miss you so much.
It is still so unbelievable that you are not here.
Will never get use to that.
There have been so many LEO's murdered this year. It seems like one every day.
I am glad you don't know the "mess" that is going on now.
Please, Lord be with those out there trying to protect us and trying to get home safely.
I love you!

Miss you! Love you!
