I have the honor of serving on the Transportation Team of Law Enforcement United this week in Sgt Pratt’s memory. Know that he is not forgotten and will be thought of specifically this week as we bicycle towards Washington DC in the Road to Hope Ride. Prayers and blessings to his family, both blood and blue.

Jason,

I stopped by and visited the other day. You are on my mind often and will always be in my thoughts. It was a sad day 10 years ago and it is still a sad day today.

Hard to believe it has been ten years since that horrible day Tye. I am still serving with my agency but not a day goes by that I don't think of the sacrifice you and others I have known in this line of work have made in order to make the world a better place. Just know that all of us that knew you keep you alive in some way and please continue to watch our six brother!

I am a High School student who is doing research to remember those hero's who have passed and faced the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Sergeant Pratt, i appreciate the amazing work that you did throughout your career, and i am proud to say that it is people like yourself that influence my life and who influence and help motivate me everyday to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a Police Officer. I pray for your family to be blessed with comfort.
We lost a HERO down here in earth, but heaven gained an Angel. Your memory will live on forever, thank you for your service.

Tye
I remember the first day in the academy, you were the funniest guy I had ever met. I miss you & talk to my son about you all the time. I look forward to the day we see each other again brother.

Tye,

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and a Border Patrol classmate (Alexander Kirpnick) not only because you both paid the ultimate price serving this country but how you lived your lives doing it. I still wear the bracelet I got from your father and have your picture alongside Alex's on my cubicle at the station. I have told your story as a firearms instructor more times than I can count hoping that somehow it might save one of our agents lives some day. As I tell them, you were as 10-8 (squared away) as they get and if it can happen to someone like you, it can happen to them.

God bless you, your family, your co-workers and friends and thank you for keeping watch over all of us from above.

Tye, I went to your grave and it's been 8 years since you were shot and killed. There vas only a few who came to honor you there but there are over 1000 people a day, that go to your web site and honor you.

I don't need to go to your grave because your grave is berried deep in my heart and I remember you with every breath I take.

As long as I live, I'll remember when you asked me " are you going to remember me? ". Im keeping my promise to you Tye at your web site every day and so are 30,000 other people honoring you there every month.

As I float along this ocean I can feel you like a notion that won't seem to let me go

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me and you make everything alright
And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me and I can always find my way when you are here

As I float along this ocean I can feel you like a notion that I hope will never leave

Thank you for keeping an eye on me, I miss you everyday. Always on our minds forever in our hearts.

Hi Tye,

Today marks the 7 year anniversary of the night you were viciously gunned down and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about that night. Thanks for keeping each and everyone one of us safe as we go out each night to fight evil.

Rita and Mike, I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Tye over 6 years ago I thought time would ease our pain. I was wrong. I think about you more often now than then. Bro I can still see you flex'n in the weight room admiring yourself in the mirror.
