Think of you every day.
Miss and love you lots.

You and all of your loved ones are in my thoughts on this special day, Police Officer Memorial Day. Continue to keep watch over all of them. I know they carry a special love in their hearts that is also filled with loving memories of you. Someone recently sent me this quote and I'd like to leave it for your Mom because as a parent of a lost child, I know what she feels every day:

"The sense of loss does not diminish with time. In truth, the expression, 'time heals all wounds' is a myth. For parents, the loss of a child is permanent and mental scar tissue really does not grow over the grim memory. Rather, all tears are expended and a dull ache remains."

You will never be forgotten.

Love and miss you!

One day that man will pay for what he did to you. It is only a matter of time.
He can try and put it off as long as he can, but one day.......................

Today is Easter.
We miss you so much on holidays.
Today we should be getting together as a family.
Love you so much.

The joy of spring has been diminished
Since you're not here to share it.
But we'll try our best to enjoy nature's beauty,
Although it is a struggle to bear it.

Miss you


April 3, 2010

Happy Birthday!
You are missed and loved so much.
I still can't believe that you are not here. But I know it is real because I can't see you, talk with you.
Tears still flow. Heart still hurts.

Could not get to sleep last night. Was thinking about you and trying to come to terms with it. Miss you so much.


February 2, 2010

This is our 9th Christmas without you. You are always in our hearts.
We miss you so much. You are on our minds 24 hours a day especially on the holidays. We think about the last Christmas we spent together. It still hurts. Tears still flow.
Until we meet again, you will be always thought about and loved more each day.
I received beautiful Christmas flowers again this year. It is so thoughtful of him to continue to send them. He is a special person to remember you each year.

This is in Memory of all of our Hero's.

Heaven has asked us for one
of our heroes today
So unfortunately we must let one go.

Heroes get up each day and dress in blue
They patrol our streets, watch our cities,
and keep us safe.

They make a difference that we often overlook
until it's to late.

Never forget the sacrifice of those
who have gone before...

And never take for granted the
sacrifice of the heroes who are still
with us.

Don, was thinking about you today. I take things you told me while we were in the Unit together and try to apply them.
I cant believe its been eight years. I hope the time makes it easier for your family, but I am sure it does not. They, like everyone else knows you are a hero. Please rest easy brother.

Missing you today. Pop-Pop is not doing well.

Thank you once again for leaving a reflection for my son in law, you are remarkable, the pain is still here but not as bad, as you know. I missplaced your email address somewhere along the line but I have thought about you and your kind words and hope we can connect somewhere or somehow.
OUR kids were great, they gave their lives doing what they loved, we have to honor them and always remember.
God Bless you and your family

Donald and Lorraine,
Didn't forget you, just couldn't leave a reflection, things have been unmanageable lately. I think of you often, sometimes that's all I can do is think.

Much love.

To the Bond family,
Today we are remembering the service, heroic action, and loss of your loved one. It saddens me that we share the same tragic day (different years, same day). I wish your family peace, and I hope they know that we will continue to support them. May you all know that we will always remember Deputy Sheriff Donald Kenneth Bond, and we appreciate his service to his community and all of us. He remains a true hero.

Thinking of you today, buddy. It's been eight years. You should still be policing the streets and doing those good deeds that you did and never said anything about.
