Hey Fatt,
I haven't written in this book in a while. I've written in my heart daily to you. I know you appreciate all the kind words and condolences that are written about your sacrifice. Sometimes, I just read what has been written about you and smile. You know you can brighten up a room! It is still hard to talk about you in past tense. I guess when people tell me that I haven't let go they are right in a sense. There is NO WAY TO LET GO OF MY FIRST TASTE OF LOVE !!! As I tell them all I have let go of the sad but NEVER YOU ! I would have to erase years of existence,blessings,learning,growing,loving,sharing,devotion.
If I did that,I would not be the strong women that you taught me I could be! Thank you for loving me and teaching me to LOVE so HARD!
If those people who keep insisting that need to let go had Someone in their lives like you, MAYBE that would make them understand why the sad I've let go, but NEVER YOU!
I will always love those who ARE building blocks in my life!
Keep watching over us. Love Ya, Fatt

My thoughts are with your loved ones. Sixteen years have passed but you have not been forgotten as you are a true hero and heroes never die. Your name now appears at the new Chicago PD monument at the Lake front with the dignity and honor you deserve. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and remember that you will never be forgotten.

Lil Eddie, I cann't put in words how I felt earlier today while I was at the park. I saw our boat, you know the Big white one with the black windows. The park is outstanding!! The love I felt while I was there was so strong. It seems that I'll no longer be the only one that the area is special to. Eddie, I know the rain was only the tears from you and the other HEROS looking down on us. Boy u all need to stop being babies, your sacrifices have made us STRONG and THANKFUL SOULS. The blessing of just spenting part of our lifes with you HEROS. I thank the Lord for placing us all in each others lifes. Luv u Joefinno.

Hey Fatt,
I will be going to the Ribbon Ceremony this morning. The location of the park is so special because it is where WE used to go to talk and hang out back in the day. I have been down there I cann't tell you how many times since you went home! When I couldn't make heads or tails of things I would go down there and talk to you. (But you know that already!)Thanks for everything Lil Eddie. Miss you boy. The ONE and ONLY Mrs. Eddie N. Jones Jr. You like when I claim that title!

Lil Eddie, You know how the support of the family was concerning the Memorial Foundation was on Sunday. SAD!
I hope thats not because they thought they would be helping me. I will sale whatever, to whom ever, where ever to help with this park for YOU!
I know your sacrafice was FAR greater than anything that could ever be purchased but something in your honor is SPECIAL to Me and Marsha. What a tribute to your life and legacy. I cann't wait for the parks dedication in September. I want to see the bricks that I purchased for you and my Daddie. Remember how we used to walk on the Lake and talk in this same area. I just hope that this park can make others feel what we as survivors feel about why it was so important to build in honor of OUR HEROS! Thanks for the Smile! Luv u Fatt Daddie!

PorkChop, I write about you today in tears. As you know I have experience so things this past 2 weeks. I seen and talked with some people that I have had no contact with in the last 13 years. I'm sure you were proud of the way I handle it. I do things still for you today ( I know you know)but only because of your blessings can I do them. Life has seasons and I deal with the weather! You just keep blowing on my neck and I'll keep seeing your smile! Can you encourage the family to support the Memorial Foundation. Keep watching over us Fatt.

L'il Eddie, it is so hard to believe that 15 years have passed. You were the best God Brother a sister could have. You were the best because you were chosen. It was an honor to have you at the Christmas breakfast table. Even to this day, we still have an extra egg in your memory. When I tell my friends about you now, they wonder about the ooportunity they missed to have known someone as wonderful as you are. I know your spirit is special because I have not met the person that could bring joy into a room the way you did. I also know you're special because I love you no less, but even more since the first day I met you. Since life has given me these years without you, in refelction I know the value of your tremendous spirit. Heaven is only enriched by your spirit. I thank God for the opportunity to have known you and to share life with you as I did. You gave us one great God Sister and I know she loves you more today than she ever has. Tell Mom & Pops hello. You are truly missed.

I know you are in heaven with my dad and my sister. He was an officer too. I bet the two of you are telling each other all kinds of stories about your lines of duty. My heart swells every time I think about you. You remember what you called yourself to your sister? Well, I laugh about it and whenever I look at your picture, I think about all of your good times shared. Surely you are missed and never will be forgotten. Rest in peace my brother!
