My Dearest Jake... I'm wide awake when I should be fast asleep. This time of year always gets the best of me. It was 10 years ago that we met and you changed every aspect of my life. My love for Police is beyond imaginable. I think of you every single day. In this season of thanks, I THANK GOD for bringing you to me. You are the most amazing man I have ever known. I will never forget you..

Jake,

I thought I had learned most of life's lessons with you-I thought we all had. Guess not. Apparently there is still more to learn about living life to its' fullest. Rest in peace Jake-I don't forget all the things you taught me in life and in death. You are missed.

Love,

Life seems to keep going and it just doesn't seem right without you here. I know the world will not stop turning because my life has been turned upside down because I lost you. My heart knows that God had a different plan for you, I just wish my mind would understand. I miss you so much! I never thought that my heart could have been shattered as it has. We should be growing old, you should be telling me to quit nagging you :) Love always and forever Jake, ALWAYS and FOREVER!

I can't believe it's been 7 years since you left us. Still that night and the last thing I ever said to you stick in my mind and will always haunt me. You are greatly missed but I hope you are looking down on us and smiling.

7 years seems so long since you were taken. I still remember our conversations, your jokes, our fun. I miss you so very much. My little boy told me he wanted to be a HERO when he grows up. I then explained to him who Jake Laird is and how you are a Hero. He asks to see your pictures and is curious about your memorial sticker on my truck. I love telling people how blessed I am to have known you. Rest easy, Jake. I will see you again one day.. XoXo

Jake, My dear friend I have missed you so much. Not a day that goes by that I dont think about the way you touched not only my life but almost everyone around you. It is so hard to believe that so much time has gone by but you are still always in my thoughts.

Jake,

It's hard to believe that is has been 7 years since your were taken away. I miss you as much today as I did back then. A day doesn't go by that I don't think about you. You touched my life in a way no one ever did before and never will again. Just know that I will never forget you, miss you sweetie.

Jake,

There still isn't a day that passes that I don't think about that night and day. I will always remind people of the sacrifice that you gave to ensure the safety of the community and fellow officers. You are an amazing person. Since this day life has taken many challenges and has given me many blessings, I married and have given birth to 2 beautiful daughters. I have seen pictures of your daughter, she is beautiful and I know you are so proud of her looking down from heaven. Jake you will live on in our hearts. To, Jakes friends and family: although I never met Jake when he was alive, I know from the stories that my dad has told me and friends and family of his that i have met, that he was an amazing man. I want you to know that I am always thinking of him and will continue to tell others and remind them that he is a true hero. God Bless you all, I pray that God wraps his arms around all who loved Jake and who were effected by Aug. 18th and helps them to continue to heal and find peace in their hearts and souls.

Jake, your amazing father took me to lunch today. I thanked him for raising the finest man I've ever met. Knowing you were the happiest times of my life. You chose me to be in your life, and buddy I will never forget the way you make me feel. I think of you and smile, however, there is a hole in my heart that never will heal. You'll always be a part of me. I miss you Jake.

Someone close to you stopped at my son's page and left a nice tribute and I wanted to return to your page and do the same. My son left behind 3 children, two were close to the age of your daughter when he was killed in 2004. They remember many things about their Dad and I do everything I can to tell them stories about their father from the time he was a child up to adulthood and the things he did. I have a hard time sometimes because his youngest son is a clone of his father. Same smile, physical movement, facial expressions etc. It's like seeing him all over again as a child. I ask that everyone that knew Jacob, keep his memory alive and stay close to his loved ones, especially his daughter. Jake, continue to watch over all of your loved ones and close friends, protect them from harm. You will never be forgotten as love of someone lives forever.

I think about her and Mike alot and pray they are doing well. I'm glad you will be sitting by the pearly gates waiting for Officer Moore to arrive. I love and miss you. Always and forever Jake...

Jake...I know its been a while that I have written on here, but there is never a day that passes that I dont think about you. I miss you so much. The past few days have been like reliving the nightmare of your death. I feel the pain that Officer Moore's family is enduring. I dont understand why you had to be taken from us so soon! Jake I love you and miss you so much, I am awaiting the day I get to see you again!
No words can describe how much the whole family misses you!
Love you always! <3 Amy

Unfortunately Officer Laird you are about to be joined with one of your IMPD officers shot by a *$#@*)$ that was released by the DOC in error.

Pave his way for him. You'll all be in our prayers.
