Fimally I get the chance to let you know that I have been thinking about you. I dont know why but I few months ago I had a breakdown and I was crying over you. My auntie and mother told me how much you loved me and thati use to talk to you when I went to my aunties house. They never stopped me they just let me talk. I want to be a police officer amd I want to work for CPD, how ironic is that?
How is heaven? I know im writing as if you can reply yo this but I know that finding this page is only my okay from you to go ahead and do what I have to do to be a cop.
I only have the stories that they tell about you and this one picture that is on this page. But I know that I love you and thank you forkeeping my auntie strong. I know she feels alone sometime but I will reassure her that you love her and whem she is home or sitting at the park that you are right beside her!
Im going to follow my dream!!!
!!
Love your niece,
Future CPD Detective Taylor

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today. Continue to watch over them and those officers still out on patrol. You have not been forgotten.

Eddie,
It does not seem possible that the horrible day was twenty years ago. The Tact Office was just never the same without you.

Hey Pork Chop! Do they have a softball team up there in heaven? You need the practice! Stick to basketball; I love the way you used to shoot the lights out! Never saw you bowl, but they tell me 300 is a pretty good score.

I'll Never forget you Eddie Nelson Jones, rest in peace my brother.

Yes!! I went to St. Brendan and remember Eddie and sister. We played softball in the middle of 68th street. Good People, the whole family. Eddie was funny! You were never sad around him. RIP old friend.

I knew Eddie as a kid at St. Brendan. We were best friends. Of all the things I remember most was playing street hockey with him. I have fond memories of Eddie. We went to different high schools but Eddie went to school at Miliken with my brother. I say this just to let his family know that Eddie was a really good guy. Eddie and his family are still in my prayers nearly 18 years after his passing.

Hey...Im looking at your picture and thinking of all the memories I never got to share with you. I miss you so much all though I only knew you for a short time. I wish you were here so I could know for myself what your voice sounded like or how your laughter filled the room. I forgave the man who took you from me but I still miss my big brother. I want to talk to you and tell you how im doing and get your advice about life and friends. I can't even describe how I feel...Sad at somtimes yet happy you are in a better place...
When I was a little girl I used to tell everyone that you were my guardian angel watching me from heaven...sometimes I still think that way. It makes me feel like you're still around me caring for me like daddy said you did when I was a baby. You'll always have a piece of my heart and I will love you always
Your baby sister,
Ashley

The years have passed since we were last able to share in a joke, laugh, or just share. I must admit that after all this time it is still hard to accept what happened to us in 1991. I cannot share with you in person so I will share with you here.

We used to work together both on and off duty, hang out in the parking lot after work sometimes for hours just talking and laughing. We did a lot together. You are my friend and brother and I miss you! I remember how you took my sons as they were your own...you use to say..I don't have any right now so I'm gonna take yours if you don't mind. That was a special time.

We made a promise to each other that if anything happened to either one of us, the survivor would look after the other's family. Well I can report that all is well.

To my brothers and sisters who may read this...I pray that no one has to bear the pain associated with the loss of a partner, but if you face such an unfortunate incident...I pray that the Lord give you peace and comfort through His grace to sustain you. Please pray for me as well for even after 17 years the pain is still there. If no one else understands, I understand. If you need someone to talk to, I will be there for you.

Shari I love you and even though some people look at us strange at times...you are my other wife and I am your other husband...I am always praying for you!

With a heavy heart I say God Bless You to all!

The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
