Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Donald Kenneth Bond

I pray that the loving arms of God comfort the heart broken many caused by the loss of Donald. I will never know your enduring pain, the harsh beating, the knife through the heart pain that you had to face. Your hearts will never heal but it will deal with it, it will at some point
be able to accept it. Donald must of been a great guy, I am saddened by your lost, for I know, after a good friend of mine ( a brother) was killed in June, Joey Cushman, what a real loss is like and it hurts me to think of the friends and family of this extrodinary officer have to deal with so much pain, like a stab in the heart.
I will keep you in my prayers. Love to all


God must have needed a good Police Officer in Heaven, and called you home.....You will not be forgotten on earth.

Thank you for being a earth angel here.....Love and prayers to your family and other Officers left to carry on your job

Every day I try to come to the ODMP to read the reflections left for "THE HEROES" that have gone before us, and I hate when I came and see a new name of another brother/sister in blue who had made the supreme sacrifice, all we can do is pray for them and their loved ones left behind. To the family and friends of Deputy Bond, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

God Bless you

You are not forgotten! We will continue to do the job in your honor and in memory of you and all who laid down their lives so that we could live in a civilized society. We are stronger because of you. Rest in peace


Donald was a friend of my son, Hamilton County Deputy Michael Cox. The pain that all of Donald's colleagues feel is felt by all Law enforcement. I thank God for brave men and women who stand on the front lines for the safety of the people they have sworn to protect. May the memory of this young man and his committment never be forgotten.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Don. I am proud to say that I was friends with someone who was as dedicated to his career as Don was. My thoughts are with Don's family, friends and our fellow Officers who are all suffering a great loss.
Don, please look over us from heaven as you did on earth.
We miss you greatly!

Rest easy, my brother. You have laid down your life for all of us. To the family of Deputy Bond, he is in God's house now and we will all be together with him again someday. My heart breaks for those of you he has left behind. May the knowledge that he is now with God give you some comfort. God Bless all my brothers and sisters of the badge.

Don Bond was a great friend who was always willing to help a fellow officer or anyone who needed help. I have known Don since late 1995 when he was a Hamilton County dispatcher. Don became a reserve officer with the City of Collegedale while I was employed there and we spent a lot of hours together in a patrol car. Don and I spent time together after he went to patrol for Hamilton County as well. It was Don who talked me into going to work for Hamilton County. Don, I will miss you! We will never forget you! My prayers are with your family and fellow officers. We have all lost a great friend and officer.


Deputy Mike Cox

To Family and Freinds,

May God give peace to you. We never know why people are taken away from us but later in life we come to realize that God's plan always works. I have lost several friends in the line of duty and it is hard to deal with but ask and you shall recieve the peace only God can give, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
May God's Peace be with you,

To the friends and family of Donald,

Why we have to endure so much pain sometimes is a mystery. Death truly boggles the human mind and rips the heart to pieces. It's difficult to remember that they are so blissfully happy that it's just insane, while we are so, so heartbroken. It is little comfort sometimes that God has God's reasons. The transition between life and death can happen to quickly and unexpectedly, which makes it hurt even worse than gradual deterioration. There are no good-byes, and no time machines to allow us that one chance we passed up to eat lunch with them, or to return to the evening where we almost called them, but got sidetracked. Death is dark, dark thing for those of us left behind, but is the brightest light in the universe to those who have passed. Life is also a bright light, and I'm sure that Donald lived a great life and touched many, many people. You have a long road I know, but Donald is surely watching over each of you. God Bless.
