Reflections for Police Officer Amy Lynn Donovan

This month marks ten years since I became a much has changed in the world and in our profession. The whole quarantine situation has forced me to slow down and chill out, and has reminded me how special the simple things are like good food, good dogs, and a loving family. I’m feeling incredibly grateful for life tonite. Remembering those we lost reminds us to stay humble and appreciate every breath we get to take. I pray that your family is safe and healthy, and as always, you’re not forgotten sister.
God bless

You don't know me. It's been 13 years and I've never forgotten your story. Some lives are lived better in a short time than others gifted with double such time. I hope there is an afterlife so that you may know the indelible legacy of your amazing life.

I was writing this on October 31st but got called away by the crying newborn next to me. I don't know what to say. Since 2004 October 31st was always associated with the worst day of my life. Then almost 7 years ago I met Paul. He was born on October 31st. Having him taught me how to celebrate life, your life, and that it was okay to do that instead of continually mourning your death. This year, again, I was shown that it was okay. October 31st, 2016 my daughter, your grand-daughter was born. To associate a date with both the worst moment of your life and the best moment of your life is a feeling I can't explain but the fact that I am even having to do that lets me know that you are there. I can't wait to share your memory with Brooklyn. You are loved, you are missed, and you are never forgotten. We love you forever and always.

May you continue to rest in peace, and watch over your brothers and sisters. You will always be loved and remembered by them and your loving family.

The past 12 years I can honestly say that I have said your name or talked to you everyday. Mostly it's the same question, "What the hell happen Amy, what the hell happen".

Miss you

As this week comes to a close, it has been heavy on my heart. I buried a childhood friend and today is 10 years since we lost Amy...10 years that truly is along time. And to all my friends that have suffered a lose in your lives, be it a spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle or someone special that has captured your heat...I want you to know that I get you...I get the days you have that are not perfect...I get the fake face you put on at times...I get the song or fragrance in the air that triggers fond memories....I get the times you hear a familiar laugh and have to turn around and look...I get the times you can't sleep...I get the moments that you feel it only happen to you...I get the days where you put everyone's feelings first...I get watching a child grow as you struggle to make their life as complete as possible...... I get when you are sick of people telling you that it will get better...i get you being sick of people telling you to move on....Move on are two words I will never me Move on negates the past...I will Move forward, but I will never forget...Forget the person that made me a better man...a more caring soul...I hope everyone has someone come along in their life that impacts you in such a way......
Through all the heartache of the last ten years...I have still been a very fortunate and blessed man..........Do you get me ?

Mother's Day is tomorrow. Last Mother's Day we had with you I bought you a giant flower in a pot balloon. What I wouldn't give to do that again. The years have gone by and life continues to march on. So many things I never thought I would have to go through with out you. I'm married now. He never gets to know you. That's hard. Almost ten years and sometimes it's hard to believe this is our life now. You would be so proud of Chase...and Dad. I saw a picture of Chase golfing. I immediately though of you. Years ago I took him mini golfing for the first time. He got a hold in one. That must have been you. Over the years I have read the reflections... All of them. Multiple times. I'm grateful for those who still visit. Tens years and OKLEO still keeps you in his thoughts. Keeps your memory alive just like we do. Love and miss you today as I did yesterday and will tomorrow. Wish you were here.
