Though I was never able to meet you, I am thinking of you tonight.


February 13, 2010

Sadly enough one of your brothers from the same barracks lost his life today. Always praying that not another trooper would pay the ultimate sacrifice. Rest in peace together and continue to watch over your family.


January 13, 2010

Though the years are going by fast, you are still in the hearts of everyone daily that you truly loved. Stories, laughter, tears and cheers were through out the conversations last night. Keep watching over us and continue to send us your blessings...Happy New Year!!!!!

In life, a person can count on one hand how many "true" friends they have or have had. Brian was a "true" friend of mine. I grew up with Brian and have many fond memories of all the adventures we shared growing up. Brian stood up for others and positively impacted his community. He’ll be missed greatly

I haven't talked to you in a year, but you are never far from my thoughts. It's so hard to believe 6years have passed. May you continue to rest in the peace God has brought you. And may you never be further than a whisper or a prayer from Julie and the kids.

The 7th annual Brian Patterson memorial golf outing was again another success today. Tyler had his team of friends and Desirae and Julie drove the golf cart around to tell everyone hello. The 50/50 was a huge success and it was nice to see everyone out supporting a good thing and enjoying the sunshine.
You will always be remembered by many Brian, continue to look down on us.

Happy birthday


May 17, 2009

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

I just wanted to say that I never knew Trooper Brian Patterson, but he obviously served the state of Pennsylvania valiantly and will never be forgotten. It is my desire one day soon to be a Pennsylvania State Trooper. If I do get the honor of receiving that position I will make sure that I carry Trooper Patterson's legacy to the best of my ability. He died a hero, and my heart is touched greatly every time I hear of an officer paying the ultimate sacrifice. Much love to the Patterson family, you are in my prayers.

Brian: Thanks for all the great memories, you are missed, please continue to watch over us as we hit the streets each and every day.

As you know the stuggles are still here and our hearts still hurt. Please continue to look down on us and keep us safe. Soon your candle will be glowing for all of the heavens to see.

It's strange how time has passed. Alot has happened good and bad. My dad's heart attack a year to the day, almost the exact time you were taken. I still think you woke him so he could get to the hospital in time(thank you). Now hear I am thinking of all of this and all of the good times we had. I'm sure you know what has happened over the last two years and I'm sure of how you feel. I ask you to walk with me and help me get the proper outcome. We (I) have tried to be strong for Kristy and the kids and I know that worse things could happen, but I need to put this to rest,and then I can get on with life again. I apologize for not stopping by more and I will try to do better.

RIP you and all the fallen officers were taken too soon from your loved ones.

I miss you every day, some days are hard to deal with but I get through them. I just want you to come home. I need you in my life. Its so hard to go through every day. I hate that guy who hit the pole. I hope he rotts in hell for what he did to you. you didnt deserve that. You deserve to be with your family, and we deserve to be with you.


September 16, 2008

I watched a video tonight that Shawn made for me. You are there with Julie and the kids. Also present are 4 others that love you and your family. We have a bond no one can understand or know because of you. Please look down and give us strength to get through these hard times. Wrap your spirit around us all. You are greatly missed and loved. May our love tether us all.

God Bless you and your family. May you continue to do the job from above and guide us here on the ground. I read a few of your reflections and let me tell you Brian, you are dearly loved which I'm sure you know. Reading your daughters reflections broke my heart as I'm a father of a 10 year old girl myself. Keep strong young lady and know your father is watching over us all.

Another day has come...Shawn went to visit you the other day. I was there with him in my heart holding his hand. You have been such an impact in his life. You are never far from his heart, soul, and thoughts. Therefore I hold you in mine as well. He is struggling with so much right now. Please look down upon him and walk with him daily on his watch. Pray to keep him from harms way, a healing in his heart, and love abounding. You are loved by us all and we keep you, Julie, and the kids with us in our daily lives.
