I can't believe you've been gone for ten years. I still remember the phone call as if it was last night. Don will always be listed as one of my best friends.

Donald, you were always smiling, you and I ate breakfast at Denny's at least twice a week. I have met only a few people who have the good morale character and kindness as you did, you are missed. REDDAWG

When I'm Gone

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel the last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.

Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun.

Forget that I've stumbered and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fourght some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day.
But in summer just gather some flowers
Aand remember the place where I lay,

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west.
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.

Almost 10 years. Too long.
Love Mom

Today was the Memorial for all of our Fallen Officers.
We miss you and still at times can not believe you are not here.

Well Donald, it will be 10 years since you left us. The pain is the same. You used to make me laugh so hard at times that I would actually cry.

Today we remember Officer Julie Jacks. Rest easy Sir!

We have lost another Chattanooga officer.
The memories coming flooding back again.
Remembering Julie and Don and now Tim.
Lord help us to endure, keep us strong, be with Tim's family, friends and co-workers.

Missing you terribly.
It is hard to put in words my feelings. The heart still hurts, the tears still flow.
It is still like living in a bad dream.
Think of you everyday.
I love you so much.

Thinking of you all day. Still can not get in my heart that you are not here.
I look at your picture and think of what should have been.
Missing you today on Thanksgiving. Thanking God that I had you for 35 years.

Dear Lorraine,

I just read the newspaper article, I hope and pray this does not get any consideration whatsoever. The law needs to be upheld and some kind of justice served.

My heart and thoughts are with you.

To the family: my thoughts and prayers are with you, especially this time of year.

I am thinking of you and your family (especially your mother Lorraine) on the ninth anniversary of your death. Please know that no matter how much time passes, there are many people who will remember you and your sacrifice and will think of your family too. RIP, Deputy Sheriff Bond, and thank you.

Another year has passed without you being hear with those that love you dearly. They will be thinking of you today, even more than all the other days of the year. Watch over them and comfort them. You have not been forgotten.

Today is the 9th year of your EOW. I can't believe that it has been that long since I saw and spoke to you.
At 1:30AM went and lit candles and put 9 white roses at the place where you were murdered, to remember the years that you have been missed. There were many Deputies and Officers there to remember you also.
I thought it would be easier as the years go by, but the hurt never goes away.
My heart still has a hard time accepting it happened to you, but there are many names on the wall in Washington and on this site that I know that their parents, wifes/husbands, children are having the same feelings.
One day I know I will see you again.


September 6, 2010

It is hard to believe that it has been 9 years on that dreadful night you were taken from us. You are dearly missed by your family, friends and co-workers. Rest easy.

Dear Lorraine,
Last year you left a message on my brothers page & u have no idea(or maybe unfortunately you do) how much it meant. I hope and pray for both our families on this horrible anniversary. May God hold your son & you & your family close to his heart.Know your son is not forgotten & your family is not alone. God Bless.

Was thinking about your Mom today and thought I would stop at your page and leave a reflection as September is almost here and she will be forced to relive that horrible day from nine years ago. I know she carries all those precious memories of you in her heart and thinks of you every day. Keep watch over all of your loved ones, come to them in their dreams to let them know you are near and watching over them. Thank you for your dedicated service to others and the service to your country. I will end with the following inscription that comes from a head stone in Ireland:
"Death leaves heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Missing you today on another holiday.
I love you.

You were a Gulf War verteran and you came back safely. I am so thankful I had you a little longer. We miss you so much. It still seems like a dream that I will never wake up from. It has been nine years since I saw you last but it seems like just yesterday.
I love you so much.
