Michael Barwick, was a friend, a brother in Blue. He wanted to make the world a better place. He did that until God called him home. It was my honor to know him.

To all the people that sent letters to the judge I say thank you from the bottom of my heart that kept Sutton in jail

I find even the mention of parole for anyone guilty of such a heinous crime appalling.Circumstances surrounding this act should be more than enough to keep this person from ever attaining freedom..Thank you..

Eleven years and I still think about that night everyday. Although I have no memories of my own I know you were looking out for me and made them get me out of the car first. I will never forget you or your ultimate sacrifice!

It's hard to beleive you left us 10 years ago... Not a day goes by that you aren't thought of. Your brothers are lost without you but I know you always show them the way... and bring them home safely... Love you forever and forever isn't long enough...

I can't believe it has been 10-years now my friend. It is hard to realize how long it has been since I can still taste the air from that night. That helpless feeling will be with me forever.

I will see you on the other side.

I miss you my friend. I must ask you to pat David on the back today and comfort him on this horrible anniversary of the day he was taken. He is in good company with you, Nick, Bob, and all the others that have given their lives for all of us.

I will see you on the other side.

Michael - Thinking of you and your parents on this sad anniversary. It's funny how life goes on, but it takes a stand still on anniversary dates such as these. It always seems like just yesterday. Watch over your parents. They love you and miss you so much. And they have helped many others.
