Today, May 6, is a gorgeous day. The sun is shining, it's warm and everything is so green. Today, May 6, it is raining in my heart...still. The pain has subsided but it will never go away. You are missed.

Another year gone by and these anniversaries don't get any easier. But we are
one day closer to being with you and Jesus. Looking forward to meeting you soon! Do people sleep in Heaven? My thoughts are with your families who will always miss you.

5/5/08 There is rarely a day that goes by that Julie is not in my thoughts. There is always something that will remind me of her; a song, a movie ,a place. ...Many tears are still shed for her. Julie had such an easy way about her. She wanted everyone to be alright and usually took it upon herself to make sure everyone was taken care of. It's always hard to know that we won't see her here again, but it is even more difficult at this time of the year. She touched so many peoples lives. She is still loved so very much and so missed. Frank and Becky raised a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart.

My dear Jules,

Another year since your death…it’s still so hard. Oh, how I wish I could turn back time and change what happened. I miss you so much.

It was always so easy to talk with you and share laughs and good times. I took that all for granted…now I long for just one more hug, one more I love you.

I know that I’ll see you again someday. Until then…

All my love, forever

Mom

As a wife of a police officer, I have always known that the possibility of "that phone call" was a very real one. As a mother of 2 young girls, I can't even begin to imagine the pain that your family went throught immediately and is still suffering through each and every day. I never met your beautiful daughter, but I did attend her services and still attend the memorials each year. Her picture is on our dresser, reminding our family not only of what a wonderful officer should be, but also that my husband needs to come back to us safely after each shift, and to thank her for the sacrifices she made performing her duty, and doing acts that were above and beyond her call. This time of year is a time of reflection at the police department and for our family as well, and I just wanted to let you know that even strangers have a special place in their hearts for Julie.
Blessings to Family & Friends

In a couple of days marks 6 years. God, I ask that you embrace the family of Julie as we approach May 6th. May their hearts be filled with your love and peace. May they be strengthen by your presence. Let us not remember how she left this world 6 years ago but let us remember the joy and happiness she shared with us. Let us celebrate the life of Julie. We know that she is with you God, so fill that emptiness with joy as the joy of the Lord will be our strength. Bless her mom and continue to give her guidance daily. In his name, amen.

My dear Jules,

Today is your birthday…and it still hurts that you aren’t here.

I remember the times we celebrated birthdays with Sheree, Misty & Jessica. Your birthdays were close together and we would have one huge party. There would be so many of your friends there. You girls had so much fun. Those are wonderful memories. I miss you so much.

All my love forever,

Mom

"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.

Once again, justice is served. Your killer will not go free.

As much peace of mind as that brings, there is no peace at heart. I know you are safe, whole, happy and at rest in heaven but those who love you will know no rest until they join you.

I know I am not telling you anything you don't know, but your mom is one brave and strong woman. You must be so proud. Your legacy lives on..

Julie,
I never knew you at all but I wish I had. I am currently in the application process with the Chattanooga Police Department and from what I have read about you, I wish I would have had an opportunity to work with you. I just hope that I have the opportunity to make an impact like you have.

Julie, we all think of you so often. Can't believe you have been gone for over 5 years. I read a lot of the reflections. You touched so many lives. Being an officer is all you wanted to do. I think it is great that you still got to be a part of Ashley's wedding. Take care Julie. You are always in our thoughts and prayers.
