Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Donald Kenneth Bond

It has been 13 years. Hard to believe. The pain is the same. Rest easy my brother in blue.

When someone you love dies...
You never quite get over it,
You just slowly learn how to
go on without them,
But always keeping them
tucked safely in your heart.

You are missed so much!

Yesterday was Memorial Day, to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
You gave your life on American soil for our freedom here.
I love you and miss you so much.

The moment that you died
my heart was torn in two,
one side filled with heartache
the other died with you.

I often lie awake at night,
when the world is fast asleep, and
take a walk down memory lane,
with tears upon my checks.

Remembering you is easy,
I do it everyday,
but missing you is heartache
that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart
and there you will remain.
Until the joyous day arrives,
That we will meet again.

I love you so much!!!

This is what you always wanted to do and I am glad you got to do it for awhile.
I am late in sending this but I think of you every day. Sometime it still doesn't feel real.
Love and miss you so much!

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today. I know that the pain of your loss will always be in the hearts of those that love you and they cherish all the wonderful memories they have of you. Wrap your wings around all of your loved ones and help them with their grief and protect them from harm. Know that you will never be forgotten.

"Gone are the days we use to share,
But in our hearts you are always there.
The gates of memory will never close,
We miss you more than anyone knows,
With tender love and deep regret,
We who love you will never forget."

"AHero Remembered...Never Dies"

You stepped out the door one fateful day
Leaving behind your loved ones to pray
Committed to loving you, they did not cry
Not knowing it would be their last good-bye

With the heart of a lion, valiantly you stood
Carrying on in a way only a Hero could
We shall never forget the life you did give
Saving, Serving and then some, so others may live

A Warrior, Protector, guarding the sheep
A promise to God and an oath you did keep
With Honor and Courage, keeping the wolves at bay
Finding the truths and justice through shades of gray

A mother, a father, husband and wife
We will forever be grateful for your life
A sister, a brother, daughter and son
We thank you all for a job well done

Now we ask that you rest easy in peace.

Remembering all of our hero's:
Lyle Sneed
Gary Dockery
Richard Alexander
Donald K. Bond, Jr.
Julie Jacks
Gerald Warf, Jr.
Lt David Gann
James "Tim" Chapin

We miss and love you all so much

One of my earliest memories is of you. I couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 years old. It was summertime, hot and bright, and we were all in the swimming pool. I climbed up the water slide, and when I slid down, you caught me every time, laughing and splashing up water. We drank grape Fanta (my favorite) and I remember the bowl of Hershey kisses in your living room, how you would only let me have a few.
I have very few memories left of you, and I wish you were still here, so I could add to those memories.

Was looking at your picture in your Fireman's helmet last night, you were looking straight at the camera and I looked into your eyes, it was almost more than I could stand. It is hard to believe that you are not here. I miss you so much, your birthday is coming.............
I love you so much.

Today is a good day. The Chapin family dosen't have to deal with Tim's murderer any more.
There will never be any closure, but at least they can start thinking about other things now.
Healing will never completely come. They will never forget that day.
Love and miss you so much.

Dear Lorraine,

Thank you so much for your words; they are so true. When September 1 comes I feel my whole heart and soul start slowing down, begging the 16th not to roll around again, as if that would change something, anything. I am so sorry I missed yesterday, but know that I think of you and your precious son often. How blessed we were to have them...honest, honorable, beautiful men of integrity. Funny, tender, pranksters that made life wonderful for all that knew them and still remember them.

I pray for your heart and memories to comfort you until we see them face to face again.

Love,

Linda Rittenhouse

September 7, 2001, last night you cried yourself to sleep and the next morning comes and for just a second every thing seems normal, but then the reality sinks in and you realize that this is your new "normal", you will be without your son for the rest of your life. Then another day of hurt and tears start and you wonder, "will I ever survive this"?.
I only write this to let others know that you will never have the normal you had before the incident, but you have to seek a new normal, one that you did not ask for.
To all who read this, may God continue to be with you and comfort you the only way He can.
I love and miss you so much.
Love

Mom

I miss you so much.
When September 5 comes, I think of when I saw you last, talked with you and then September 6th 5:15AM comes and that treadful knock on the door and my heart is
broken in so many pieces.
Oh how I wish that day could be wiped off the face of the earth, you would still be here.
Lord, please give me strength for today.
I love you so much.
