Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Brandy Lyn Winfield

I'm having a hard time with it again this year, buddy. I'm to the point where I can smile and remember the good times for 51 weeks of the year, but this week (especially tomorrow) has been really tough this year. I'm going to meet up with some of the guys tomorrow and honor you.
Know that you're not, and never will be, forgotten.

I love you, buddy.

I just wanted to tell you that I met Sara at the COPS Re-treat. She greeted me the first night and made me feel like I was a part of the COPS family. She has kept your memory alive and it would make you proud. Sara has given me the courage and strength to know that I will make it and so will my kids.

Please continue to watch over us all and say hello to Chad for me when you see him.

Hi Brandy,
I noticed nothing has been posted for more than a month.
The people of Marion have not forgot you.

Been a long time brother. Still think of you often, of the fun we had in the academy and how we used to cut on each other all the time.

RIP brother, we have it from here.


February 12, 2010

You are still thought of often. Time goes on, but I know in heaven it is just an instant. Good people are not forgotten!

Miss you buddy!

I think that so much has probably changed since you have been gone. I can't imagine how difficult it still is for everyone. Please bring some peace to everyone and keep watching over them. A Bucyrus trooper recently joined you in heaven and I know his family is really struggling now too. I think of you often.....


February 8, 2010

Boy do I miss you.So much has changed and I wish you were here so I could tell you about everything. I miss you so much,I miss my friend.You were always there for me and you always understood and never judged.Just a couple of the great qualities you possessed. I love you!

Hey Brandy,

Bobby Koteles posted a picture of you on his Facebook page that I saw today and it reminded of a few good times. I was just thinking of you. Miss you.

You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live ...yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what he'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Have a Happy New Year Bran. Miss you!!!
