Wow Jake, 5 years already? Not a day has gone by that I don't think of you. I pray for your Mom and Dad, and your brother who is fighting a war for us. I am so proud to have known you. Some people you just don't forget. You'll live in our hearts forever. And someday, I will see you again...

Hey Jake,

I just can't believe that it has been 5 years already. There are times it seems like only yesterday that I got that horrible phone call that changed my life forever. You were such an "Awesome Friend" and I'll never forget the fun we had and all the long talks. I miss you each and everyday and always will. There will always be a "special" place in my heart for you. Thank you for watching over us and keeping us safe, keep up the good work.

It's been five years and as the 18th approaches I still feel like there is a band around my chest-like I can't take a deep breath. I remember everything thing we were doing together five years ago, but it seems like yesterday. I still can't quite believe you didn't come home that night.
My son is a year old now. I tell him about how he got his name. I take you with me wherever I go. I miss you and hope you know that you are a part of me.

Love,
Kelli

Here I was, looking for you on the internet...& I couldn't find you. I decided to search for your name, because I always knew that you would be "somebody."
NO! the tears started immediately. your smile, your beautiful wife and daughter, your mom...it's all so unfair.
I haven't even seen you or spoken to you since 1989. 20 years? Wow. I just found my yearbook to see what you wrote. You wrote that you would miss me dearly. Well, I will miss you dearly. I will pray for your family.
"Always"
P.S.
I hope you got that Audi you always wanted! :)

Officer Laird, R.I.P. I was born and raised in Shelbyville, IN. I never knew you but reading what your family, friends and LEO's left; I can say with PRIDE that you are an American Hero. You served our country in the finest branch of the military. You then served the people of Indianapolis as one of the finest in blue! Since I found this site I have read ALOT of the Officers stories and I have shed many a tear for those who where taken from their loved ones, friends, fellow LEO's and Communities! GOD BLESS YOU JAKE! You are a HERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I miss you so much each and eveyday. They said it would get easier, but there are days that it is just unbearable not seeing that awesome smile of yours. There have been more times then I can count in the last 4 years that I wish I could have just heard your voice one more time. I'll never forget you sweetie, your in my thoughts everyday.

Another Thanksgiving, and you're not here to tell me EVERYTHING you ate, got full, looked at food,and ate again. Thanksgiving was the first time we hung out... and spending your entire shift with you was unreal. I had so much fun that night. You have impressed upon me so many memories... we miss you terribly.

Well, its been 4 years and 3+ months.. and they say time makes it easier... well, they didn't know us. I think of where we would be now, part of me laughs because that is just who we were and part of me cries because I miss you terribly. You were my best friend, my everything. We had big plans... plans that will never be. I know that you would just want me to be happy and Lord knows that I have tried. I had a dream about you today, you wanted me to pick up the pieces, to remember you but move on. It was so real Jake. Nobody will ever take your place, but I have met someone who is amazing, he makes me laugh (alot), he is a beautiful person. I haven't known him long, but I remember when we first met. We are just friends right now, but you never know. You and I were an uncanny pair and look at what we had :) He shares alot of my beliefs and values, he is amazing and I know that you would approve.
Jake, I will never forget you... but I must start another chapter. I love you, but I need to let go.
Love Always and always!

It is hard to believe that you would have been 36 tomorrow son. I often wonder how you would be and what you would be doing. Those kind of thoughts seem to pop into my mind quite often.

4 years and still seems like yesterday. I'm not sure why I go to this site everyday except to remember. Since you're death, I look at Police Officers in a very different way. It's real knowing that today could be there last. Crime is so high right now, My prayers go out to officers and their families. I still see your rememberance sticker on cars, I see that people remember. You were taken too early. God's Speed Jake.

For years ago today and your face is still fresh in my memory, as though I just saw you yesterday. We miss you so very much, and long for the day that we can meet again. You are not forgotten Jake. So many keep their memory of you so very much alive. Keep a watch over your loved ones, for they are the ones that need you so, at this moment.

On the 4th anniversary of Officer Laird’s death, we honored his service during roll call by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job.

Officer Laird may be gone, but is not forgotten.
