Reflections for Police Officer Brian Donte Winder

Officer Winder,

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Miss you, still living the lessons you taught me as my FTO. Forever grateful to you.

I was sitting on the swd lit today reflecting on this weeks events. It was a big week for me. I speak of you often, daily. A little white feather blew in my car window and landed on my dash. They say it’s a sign an angel is near. I knew it was you. Brian thank you for your sacrifice. I still do this because of people like you. You always did things the right way, you were a good human. We miss you dearly here. You memory is alive and well within the SWD.
I hope we are making you proud.

Officer 'B':
Just stopping by to say Merry Christmas. Unfortunately, BPD tragically lost another officer recently. I'm sure you were there to greet and welcome her at the Pearly Gates. Miss you big bro!

Though I’ve never met you, my husband worked closely with you and I am grateful for your service and sacrifice. I wish your family continued peace and knowing that Brian was out there helping others makes him a true hero. I wish I could have known you, you are all that embodies a hero. Sixteen years later and you are still remembered and alive in stories and memories.

Brian, You would have been turning the BIG 50 on the 9th and we would have celebrated 24 years together on the 10th. We may be apart and unable to celebrate, but I love you more than when I decided to spend the rest of my life with you! I know you would have been a little gray and more handsome than ever. I miss you more then I could ever express! Thank you for showing that you're with me spiritually. Please continue to lookout for your children, grandkids, and the rest of your family. Thank you my love for every year we shared. Your smile is forever engraved in my mind and your love deeply over flows in my heart! Until we meet again HAPPY BIRTHDAY and Anniversary Bear

Hey 'B',
Just swinging by to leave a shout out. 13-years sir...hard to believe. Just ain't been the same since you were taken away. Pretty sure you're looking down and seeing all that is going on with the world. Well, I'll stop typing now cause my eyeballs are starting to get a little sweaty reminiscing about the times were around. Talk to you later sir.

Hi Brian,

It's been quite awhile since I've been able to leave a reflection but it's been a few changes that has occurred such as your great-nephew. I wish he would have known you. He always smile at your picture as if he does which helps with the hurt. Everyone is doing well, but around this time we usually get more upset. What helps me is that I try and remember how you lived instead of how you were taken away, I know you would want that from us.

Love you always!!!
