Reflections for Supervisor Stanley A. Wiley

At the beginning of this year, you were the first to be called home in Texas! We have people like you that patroled the walls, others patroled the streets and yet others fight over seas for our freedom. All these jobs are the most hardest job of all jobs and less desireable by alot of people. You are called and chosen to these jobs. You are one of the "Best" of the "Best!" Thank you for your service and fight till the end! Another soldier for the final battle called home! God Speed!

Oh my goodness! Such a waste of such a good life. We all have little sayings that we tell ourselves to get over the peeks and valleys of living from day to day, but it seems that sometimes life is just not fair. Why must we have to deal with the dark souls on earth? What are we to learn from all of this? Religion tells us that God has a reason for everything, but is all this really necessary.

We will think of you daily and pray for you and your family. May your wings fly high. You have released the surly bonds of earth and can now reach out and touch the face of God. We love you, dear one, and we will meet someday. Thank you for everything.

I worked behind the wall for almost 16 years. what happened to this fine young corrections officer was my worst fear. Being shanked by one of the animals. This is such a stressful job, The general public has no idea what we go through on a daily basis. They dont want to know. Out of sight out of mind. But we are corrections officer and we do a job that only very few can handle. We keep them incarcerated and keep them locked away and keep them safe only to have these inmates contemplating how to escape and how they are going to kill another officer. My heart and prayers go out to Supervisor Wileys family and co-workers. This is a terrible tragedy. I hope the justice system puts him to death like he deserves.

Sometimes they get caught and convicted. Thank you brother for protecting us from them. I will not forget what you have done for me and all of us.


To Wiley-Son, my friend, my brother, I remember your laugh, your smile, your generosity an the fact that no matter what you always went out of your way to help a friend. You had a noble heart an the strength of a lion. After all how many people do you know that could finger their attacker, an keep writing dont pertinent information while their lifeblood was flowiing out. You'll be happy to know that thanks to your sacrifice we now have body alarms for everyone. Take Care Be Good and I'll see you again someday.


We are truly saddened at your loss.
We all recall you gave your best.
You did your job, now you can rest.
The young ones now can cover your post
as you take your place with the Heavenly Host.

God Bless Our Fallen Brothers & Sisters.
Our prayers will be with you, your family, and co-workers!

Memorial Poem
From the treacherous tiers of every institution
To the transports on our Highways each day,
We'll always remember our fallen co-workers
Who are no longer with us, as we pray.
While each day they performed their duties
Of care, custody and control
And as the days, weeks and years went by
They're now gone before they grew old.
Corrections is the type of work
That we put our lives on the line each day
But to the grieving spouse or the parentless child
It's hard to know what to say.
So as we reflect on our fallen co-workers
At this very time each year
All the memories do come back to us
Bringing laughter, sadness and tears.
So on this day to remember
Their memories will be in our heart
We'll never forget what they've done for us
Paving the way for a brand new start.
Because of their sacrifices, I ask you lord
To watch over us each day
And give us the strength to do the job
So no one else will ever have to pay.
So to all our fallen co-workers
May you always rest in peace
I promise you'll never be forgotten
And your memories will never cease

Lieutenant Dan Brown
Pima Co Sheriff's Dept.

Go with the angels.
May your family and friends find comfort in memories.
You will always be close.

My sympathy goes out to the family and fellow officer of Supervisor Wiley.
While I did not know him, I am sure that he has earned his seat in heaven. Rest well fellow officer and those of us remaining will cover your post on the blue line.

Sergeant Ryan McNeil
New Chicago, Indiana Police Department

Please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Thank you Supervisor Wiley for a job well done. Please continue to watch over us and protect us as only you can. You will forever be at our side and in our hearts.

For those of you who still have loved ones with us please take the time to tell them how much you appreciate and care about them.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.
