Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Renee Danell Azure

Stopped in to visit and leave a reflection. I'm a few days late, but I will never forget you as you are a Blue Angel and will never be forgotten. I know your Mom is so proud of you and the police legacy that you now have with your daughter and sister. I know your Mom worries about them every day. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones.

Renee, it is so hard to believe that you have been gone 19 years, I just can't wrap my head around that. I miss you and my grandbaby each and every day. My heart still breaks each day. So much has happened, but I know that you are with each of us and walking beside, guiding us as we need it. Please continue to watch over your sister and daughter as they put on their uniforms everyday and head out that door, protect them and bring them home safely each and every day. Watch over your niece and nephew that you never had the chance to meet in person, but I know you know them by protecting them daily as well. I wonder what my grandbaby that went with you would be doing today, grown up and having a career of their own. So many if's.... but one thing I do know, you my precious angel will NEVER be forgotten as long as I live, you are a hero and will always be to us all. Continue to ride over the road with your dad and walk beside us all. Love and miss you so much, mom

I'm a few days late, but I do think of you as you are two days after my son. I know exactly what your Mom goes through on a daily basis. We live in the past and also the future wondering what could have been. Keep watch over your Mom and also your daughter who I hear wants to follow in your foot steps. Protect them both. You will never be forgotten.

My precious angel, 18 years has gone by and my heart aches today just as much as it did that dreadful night. I miss you and my grand baby. So much has happened in these 18 years, your little girl has grown up and is now a deputy, continue to ride with her as well as your sister and keep them both safe. I love and miss you my hero.

Renee, as we approach your EOW, 18 years, I am not sure where time has gone, but so much has happened. Your baby girl is now grown up and following in your foot steps (please watch over her and your sister on the road, ride beside them all the time). You are an aunt to Autumn who will be 3 in a couple days and Ulrick almost 2. I know that my grand baby who was taken from us with you, must be a beautiful soul at almost 18... So many things have happened, and the world has become a mess right now, so much hate and violence, continue to be with us all. I love and miss you every single day.

In 2004 at the Police Memorial I previously posted how I watched a little girl make a rubbing of your name and then gather small pieces of tape from other's so she could hang hers. It was signed "Faith" . All these years later I see a release from October how Faith is now a Deputy! Please watch over all of them.

I'm a week late with my reflection but, I haven't forgotten you. Your Mom has told me about your daughter, she has grown up fast with college and all, plus her career choice. Watch over her and your Mom. I'd like to leave the following for your Mom as I know she has tears every day as I do for my son. You have not been forgotten.

Renee, I know that I don't usually post on here, but the site I use is not working, and I wanted to let you know that your 40th birthday did not pass without me trying to send you a message and that I want to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day. I know how proud you are of Faith, she is close to graduating the academy and FSU, then head out to patrol the street, I know that you will be beside her every minute of the day. We love and miss you both so much. Continue your watch on the streets of gold and keep an eye on all of us left behind as we continue to have a hugh part of our lives missing.

Love you today and always.

Renee, not a day goes by I don't think of you. Your mom & dad miss you every day. You would be so proud of Faith, she is an amazing young woman. RIP our blue angel.

Hi Blue Angel. Thought I'd stop in as I was thinking about you today. Time never heals old wounds when it comes to losing a child so I know what your Mom and daughter live with every day. There is always something to remind them of you every day, a photograph, a special holiday. Today I came across the rubbing your daughter made for me of my son Mike's name off the wall in Washington D.C. I put it on his honor table I have for him in my house. We all take one day at a time, wake up and dress and get through the day and not a day passes without thinking about our lost one. Continue keeping watch over your loved ones and know you have not been forgotten.

"I heard someone whisper your Name.
When I turned around to see who is was;
I found myself alone.
Then I knew, it was my heart Missing you."

Well, it's been 16 years now. A lot has happened but one thing remains... I miss you. I will always love you. Gone but certainly never forgotten. XOXO

Your daughter, Faith.

Once again your heaven birthday is here. I know for your Mom and loves ones it arrives with an emptiness. They think of the past times with you and the love you shared. There are no special words I can offer them to comfort them except that you will never be forgotten by them and your blue family. Continue to keep watch over all of them, protect them. I know every day your Mom lives with the fear of losing someone else very close to her. Losing a child is like losing your heart.

Hi pretty Angel. I haven't forgotten you nor have those that love you dearly. Your Mom knows you are looking down her every day. When she walks in the rain and feels a rain drop land on her cheek it is a kiss from someone that lives in Heaven and that person is you looking down on her. Keep watch on all of your loved ones and know that you have not been forgotten.
