Thinking of you...Love you, Judie

It has been five years since you were taken away. I did not know you personally, but I knew officers who did. I look upon the memorial and think of a good friend who died protecting his city, Aubrey Hawkins, Irving PD, Irving TX. This much I know, we must never forget those who have fallen in the line of duty, and must always Honor them, and for those who are coming out of the academy, just remember, if this terrible action should happen, you will never travel alone, there are those who will welcome you. We do what we do because we love the job, for all the officers who have fallen, we will always be there to pick you up and carry on your name and your morals.

Ashley’s wedding was Saturday. It was a wonderful ceremony…she was so beautiful. You would be very happy for her.

We missed you so much, but you were with us in our hearts and memories. She had your picture and purple tulips (your favorite color) on the entrance table in your memory. She wanted you to be a part of her wedding.

All my love, now and forever.

I did not know you personally but I know what you did,as I read the memorials I come to mind John 13:15 and all Blue angels that have gone before us.
You are now God's angel.

Officer Julie, So sorry. I just Pray God Bless and continue to comfort your family. I met your mother yesterday you have a sweet mother. She was very helpful to me and so glad we got to meet. You are a true hero. You and my son are both hero's and now you walk the streets of heaven together. You will never be forgotten for your bravery.

Yesterday was Mother's Day, and I thought about your mom so it has been 5 years since she has been able to spend a Mother's Day with you. I took flowers to your resting place last Sunday, on the 5th anniversary of that horrible day...and it was very strange to go there again. It does not matter how much time is still like only yesterday in my mind...and I don't know if it will ever be easier to deal with the sights and sounds of that day. I know that you are in a better place, and I try to take comfort in that...but, things still seem so unfair. It is unfair that life for you stopped so young and for the rest of us, it just continues. So much has changed for me in the past five years...I have become a wife, I have become a stay-at-home mom with a 1 year old son and will be having another baby in a few months...All of these life changes have been exciting...but, I have always thought of you, and how you should have had the chance to experience all of this too. I think of you every day. You will never be matter how much time passes.

It has been 5 years since you were taken from us. It is hard to beleive how the time has flown. Rest easy, BLUE ANGEL! You are not forgotten.

Saw you on COPS tonite catching Johns. It was your
first time. It was said you were a great cop. According
to these reflections that opinion was reiterated by so
many. Wish you were still policing since you were such
a natural. Guess your job is done as there are no sinners in heaven. I wonder what job Jesus will have
for you? Bet it's a good one!

Hey Julie,
Thinking of you and your family today. I love you, Judie.

It's been 5 years. I'll always remember your name and
look forward to meeting you in Paradise some day. I
love this Chris Rice song titled Untitled Hymn.

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!

Your memory is alive and well. Healing will only come
when those whose faith is in Christ will meet you on the
other side. Until then, we rejoice that you are with the
Savior and the cares of this earth are far from you!

My thoughts are with your loved ones on this 5th anniversary of your EOW. I know the pain they live with each and every day without you. Some may feel that the past 5 years has flown by, while others it has felt like a lifetime since they heard your voice or saw you great smile. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and those still out on patrol. you are a true hero and heroes never die. You will never be forgotten. Thank you for your dedicated and brave service to law enforcement.

My dear Jules,

Sunday will be 5 years since you’ve been gone. It’s hard to believe these years have gone by. Where did the time go? How did we survive? The pain is still there…we’ve simply learned to live with it.

Ashley will be getting married the end of this month. Oh, how I wish you were here. You will be missed, but your spirit will be there with us.

Your memory lives on in our hearts, Jules. I miss you so much.

All my love, forever

Julie, As we approach the 5th year without you, it is still so hard to accept your senseless death. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you and see your smiling face reflected in the picture we have of you hanging in our precinct.May you rest in peace, dear angel in blue, and keep watch over all the folks who love and miss you so much. We will never forget your sacrifice.

My dear Jules,

Today is your would be 31.

Kenny Chesney’s song, “Who You’d Be Today”, really touches on my thoughts. Who would you be today? Would you be a wife? Would you be a mother? What would you name your children? My mind roams through the maze of possibilities ..... on and on with no answers.

I miss you so much!

My Love Forever


February 7, 2007

Hi there Julie,
Remembering you today, your birthday, and all of the joy and love you brought into our lives. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could give you a big hug and kiss!!
Love you,

Officer Jacks the impact you had on peoples lives is still seen today. Even folks like me that never had the honor of meeting you. I have told your story many times. Your service and bravery are not forgotten. Take care of my buddy Trp. Calvin Jenks. I know he is patrolling with you now. Rest in Peace Warrior...

For those that knew you in life, "death" must carry an unimaginable pain in it's literal "earthly" finality. Yet, in reading these reflections, page after page, and the regularity with which they are updated, makes it difficult to comprehend you as dead. I never met you, yet through what others have said that did know you, I feel a connection to you. From the reflections I have read from others who equally never met you, I see I am not alone in that feeling of connection. I don't know which is the greatest testiment to your life-what is said about you from those who knew you best, or from the impact you continue to have on those of us who never knew you at all. From what I have read and heard, you seemed to be the real deal, the whole package. I have heard from officers that knew you, and some who instructed you, of the respect that you earned. The balance you had between compassion and the "warrior" mindset, that could be the envy of any officer, male or female. In the past, I could take or leave Willie Nelson, but in reading your reflections, I now pause wherever I am, and whatever I am doing when I hear him mournfully sing "You Were Always on My Mind". I listen to those words, and for those two or so impromptu memorial minutes, I am reminded that in some part of my personal and professional fabric, you are always on my mind.

To Julie and her family: you have been in my thoughts and prayers throughout this season and beyond. May God bless you and may his angels wrap their wings around you. You are in my thoughts and prayers throughout the year.
