Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Wesley Mack

On this, the seventh year since you passed away, I continue to think about you and the good times. From the interesting conversations in the SOD office, to the trip to GPSTC with Willie Reed I miss the laughter and fun we had. Sometimes our jobs caused us saddness, we always seemed to lean on each other to get through it. I look at your memorial photo in my office everyday and am reminded of those times. I also remind my current students that life is precious and we should cherish every moment we have with each other.
Continue to watch over us my brother as you have been doing and I look forward to the glorious day where I can shake your hand again and see that smile that I have missed for the past seven years.

Hey Bud...

It's been awhile since Ive stopped by, but I think about you a lot. This week has been a hard week. My Chief passed away and it made me remember how i felt when I got the news you were no longer with us. You encouraged me so much when I first started this field almost 12 years ago. you were such a great friend. I think you would be proud of what I have accomplished. but I know you have been with us all through these years and you are much love and missed!!!!

How much you still continue to impact the family. They are all grown and have wonderful kids of their own. You would be so proud of each and every one of them. I was talking to a dear friend of ours today about the impact you made in our lives. I will always carry you in my heart. Thank you for your love, laughter but mostly for allowing me to be a part of your life. Despite the pain of you being gone, God continues to be faithful and shows me mercy each day.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Although it's been 6 years today, it's STILL hard to believe it's been so long. Words still can't express how and what I feel. You will always be a part of me. I love you!

Hi Wesley,
I was just thinking about you today when I looked on my bookcase and saw the wall rubbing of your name I took in DC. I am glad to see so many people visit you, even some from the agency who never knew you. A lot of them hear stories of you from the rest of us here who were afforded the privilege of serving with you. I know you are looking over us all and I thank you for that.

Hey daddy,
I'm just stopping by to leave u a message. There are just so many things that I wish I could tell u right now. I miss u a whole lot and think about u everyday. I wish u were here to see my girls, they are so big and they ask me about u at times when they see your picture in house. I think u would be proud of me at the way I'm raising them. I remember you used to tell me that you want us to do better in life than u. Well I'm not sure that I can do that but I'll try my hardest. I finally decided to college to better my life just like u asked and for that I want to say thanks. Well I'm gonna leave saying that u may be gone from this earth but u r not gone in my heart, Taiwans heart, or Wesleys heart. We love and miss u!!

I remember as a kid my mom worked at cory everson's in martinez, and you would come by the back of the gym on your bike to stop and eat or just rest and how you would sit there withme in the break room and play cards with me or just show me your bike. I loved going to work with my mom just to see my favorite officer, then i heard about what happened a few years back and even though you probably wouldn't remember who I am I remember you and I just wanted to say that you truly were one of the best. You are truly missed.

I went to see you and leave you some flowers yesterday. Time really flies. It's hard to believe it's been 5 long years but it has. Wow, words can't express how I feel. It's still hard.....I miss you.

I was just sitting here thinking about you and wondering if you're looking down on me. I just wanted to let you know that I am doing fine. I still can't believe you're gone and every now and then it seems as if I have to pinch myself to see if it's real. This year will be 5 years that you have been gone, gone in presence, but not in spirit.

Hey Wes, I just found out that you were no longer with us and I was hurt. So I did my research and found you and you look the same to me. Never aged one bit (smile). I remember when you went into the military and I also remember when you worked at the RiiS Center for your summer job and you took me to the Bronx Zoo. Wow ! I know. We were neighbors for so long and our two families friends.You'll be missed truly. As for me even though you've been gone for a minute, it's new to me. Rest easy Wes. Gone But Never Forgotten.....

Love Ya,

Many, many years have gone by since our days together in Queensbridge and PS 111 and 204. There are few classmates that I have thought about over the years, but I always remembered the two Mack twins - Willie and Wesley! Rest in Peace.

I don't quite know where to begin. I only found out of your death this morning. I feel so much grief. I think of you so often over the years. You were one of the best men I've known, and I often ask myself, what would Sargent Mack do in this situation. You were such a great guy. I always wanted to be like you. I'm so sorry Mack. I guess most of these folks knew you during your years of service on the police force. I remember you from our Army service together in the 7th Data Processing Unit, 73rd Signal Brigade in Kaiserslautern, Germany. You were a great leader, and I'll always remember you for your caring, your fairness and professionalism. Rest in peace dear friend.

Thinking of you on the 4th anniversary of your Homegoing. Many, many people
think and hope when they die they will be in Heaven. But it's totally different
when you know that you know you will be in Heaven. I look forward to meeting
you some day when I arrive. Thanks for your gift of service.

I remember the day before you left this earth, mary had called me and mention about introducing you (Wesley Mack) to me. I remember how much she use to talk about you over the phone, of how wonderful of a person you were, I was like, wow, I really got to met this guy because I never heard mary talk about someone like this before, that's how I knew she was in love. I hated the fact that I never got the chance to meet you, but from what I know about you, I believe you were a great loving person for my friend, mary boseman. Mary, if you are reading this, I hope that we can still be friends and hope that you forgive me. I've always cared and loved you like a sister and hope you feel the same about me. My heart and my prayers go out to you and wesley mack family.

My dearest brother, Wesley
It has been so long since I have written, but I know even though you are not physically here, you know exactly what's going on....I thank God for the gift of life....I have been told that I am now cancer free, Thank God...It's been a rough 2 years for me, but God has brought me through...Each day I miss you more and more....In the last couple of years before that fateful day, you had been our backbone, who would have ever thought you wouldn't be here today....I know you are still looking down on us, and cheering us on, and I know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, and yes, you are with Him, watching over us!...Words can never express how we truly love and miss you and Willie...things have not been the same, but we know that one day we will see you both again....Until that day, take care, and keep us in your heart.....GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!...WE LOVE YOU!

Your big sis,

Carolyn Mack Holley (Sister)

Wow does time fly. I can's believe how long believe it's going on four years. Time does fly. I am still keeping myself very busy, I have so much going on now, but I know you already know that. Thanks for looking over me and keeping me safe. Thank you for everything. I still think of you everyday and I know I will always. I know some of the things that I do have going on in my life is because of you (you know exactly what I am talking about)and I thank you for it! I love you and I always will!
