Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Perry Austin Fillmore

Easter Sunday and one year ago you left us. We have all missed you more then you could have ever imagined. My prayers are with Paula today. There is nothing we can say or do to make this day any easier...She knows WE are here for her and she knows YOU are there for her too. Rest in Peace. Aunt Joan & Uncle Ron

One year, don't feel any different. Sure do miss you I love you.

I thank you for all that you gave, the ultimate sacrifice.
I respect you for helping others, when many wouldn't or didn't.
I honor you for putting family, friends, partners, and strangers before yourself.
I miss you, we all do.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.

Today, March 27, 2005 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Deputy Sheriff Perry Fillmore who died in the line of duty on this date one year ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Deputy Fillmore's sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Bum, I can't beleive it was a year ago today that the Lord took you away from us. He must of really needed a great guy in Heaven, because he took the best that was out there. I miss you so much, as does everybody else.

DS Fillmore,
On this, the anniversary of your passing, I SALUTE YOU!!

I will honor you (and far too many others) in Washington DC in May.

May God continue to bless you and your families!

Larry, it's been one year already. I think 'bout you every day. "WOW" so much has happened. I should have been killed in that shooting but, you were there for me "again" and wasn't gonna let that happen. It's sad to think that you were taken from this world to watch over my silly ass. but, thanks again. I am now understanding that things happen for a reason. Love ya man, Rick

Hey Perry,
I was thinking about you really hard today. I really want a "flannel night" with every body. I guess it would bring a world together to celebrate the life of Perry, Bum, and all of the other nic-names you have. I keep Paula in my prayers. She is a special lady and I could tell that when you and I used to meet at "Dead Mans Curve" in the middle of the night. My Chief will never know, promise!

Hey Perry, by now you know that Ricky is up there with you. He was killed in Iraq a couple days ago. Between the two of you I'm sure you're gonna watch out for the rest of us. Our town has given up enough of its young men. I just ask one more please.
You two rest in peace, you two have earned it. Proud to have known you.

11 months tomorrow and am just starting to realize that your not going to walk through that door. It's a hard thing to swallow. Been a terrible month, on my birthday all I could think of was how we were supposed to grow old together. It's just not fair and seems to get harder everyday. Not sure what I am supposed to do with my life without you. I miss you more than words can say.

I love you

Hey, Perry, I have been thinking so much of you lately. You officers go through so much. Working here makes me realize that I am so proud of you guys. Sean and Mick and all the guys had a close call a few weeks ago. I told Sean, I know that you were looking out for him. Miss you Perry and your jokes:)


February 25, 2005

I wish you were here we all miss you so much. They say that time will ease the pain but I have found that to be a lie. I miss you and love you.

February 25, 2005

Bum I just wanted you to know you are still with us every day .Every day I still miss you as well.I want to call so bad and ask is Jerry there?

February 22, 2005

Hey Mister,

Just wanted to take a minute to say hello and tell you that I am thinking about you. I miss you so much, calls are just not the same without you on them with me. I miss the late night laughs during the more difficult calls. You are the best. Until we meet again, my friend. You are in my heart forever. :)

Ten months today and still seems like yesterday we were making all those big plans. I love you and miss you more everyday.

I love you

Hey Bum,
Gary's 5th was today. I am sure the two of you are whooping it up, up there. Miss you lots. I wish I could do more for you and your family but, at the same time, I don't know what I can do for them. I can't help but feel a hard tug at my heart when I go to Clinton County S.D. I remember feeling sooooo happy for you when I heard you got hired at C.C.S.D. and at the same time feeling "These guys don't know what they are in for" because of how I knew you. If there is any thing I can do just let me know. LOVE MIKE

Hey brother, I've been called back to Active duty, so I'm not working the streets. Wish I was back there though with all my other brothers and sisters.
Keep them safe for me.
