Reflections for Police Officer Amy Lynn Donovan

6 yrs tonight 10/30/2004 when the accident happened, but it still feels like yesterday and I still have Terrys voice message on my answering machine, then the dreaded call on 10/31/2004 at around 2 am that you passed away. It is the sadest day of my life. How can one ever forget their 1st child!
Love you then and today

I guess today is an Amy day. Looked threw a few albums, your book, old pictures laying around. I just cannot stop thinking about you today. I really wish you were here...We all miss you so much. I love you. Oh yeah, I came across old notes we kids gave you when we were being bad. I always said "peace out" and "IOU" Just giving a refresher.

I just read an article today that they are naming a street after you. There is nobody more deserving! I am so very proud and honored to have known you even for such a short amount of time. No matter how many years go by since you left us, I continue to miss you and think about you often. I have a picture of all of us women from the 109th Cadet Class hanging in my office. What a wonderful group we were, huh? :) So many memories of the many WONDERFUL memories of you! Thank you for continuing to touch the lives of so many people.

I didn't know you but everytime I see your picture I think, You look so proud to be an Austin Police Officer. And now there is a street named after you in the domain and I work for the police department and I never heard about it. Well know now that you are gone but never forgotten

Hi Baby,

Chase and I went to the APD memorial last night. The Chief said to Chase that he is such a good looking boy he could be a movie star...Chase just looked at him and said No...I'm going to be a police officer. It is so hard that Police week is near Mother's Day...I could tell last night that Chase misses you so do we all.

Love you, watch over us and keep us safe.

Lately I have been thinking of you...wishing you were here. I just can't believe it has been so long. I Love and miss you everyday. I try not to think about the time that has passed. I just wanted to say hi. Love you

March 16, 2010

Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.

love you sis, and miss you so much.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifth anniversary year 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you, especially Terry, Chase and your mom. The hurt of losing a beloved family member in the line of duty never goes away
...both the pain and the pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

You left a message for me on 4/19/08 on my dad's page-thank you so much for your words of encouragement and understanding. I'm so sorry for your loss and your little man losing his mommy. Five years since she was taken from your lives-I know it seems like yesterday. We just had an officer shot and killed in Seattle on Oct. 31-when an officer is killed it always takes me back-I'm sure you understand. Officer Brenton has a wife and a daughter (11)and a son (8) that have now been left behind. There are things I have thought of that I wanted to share with Officer Brenton's family and you too. First-children look to their parents to see how to deal with the loss and grieve-it's okay to cry. It's okay for your children to see you cry. After 32 years, I still have times when I cry-I still miss my Daddy. Always will. Secondly-please, write down as many stories you can about Amy so Chase will be able to know who his mommy was. Encourage her family and friends to write stories too for Chase (for them too)...over time we forget so much-things we can't imagine we'd forget but we do. Stories of Amy and Chase--I believe when he gets older he will read those stories over and over, and will bring him a source of comfort. When he grows into a man and finds a wife, she too will want to know Amy. And those writings will provide some answers for her--and just like me, Chase will want his children to know their grandma. I wish my family would have written things down for me. It's much harder to fill in the pieces later when we are looking for answers. I may be sharing things you are already doing but I just want to help those that are traveling the same path I have. I maybe many years ahead of you in terms of my loss but it doesn't matter how much time passes--those of us left behind want to wrap our hearts around others joining us on the journey none of us wanted to take.

Take care Terry.
