Reflections for Police Officer Robert Francis "Bob" Grim, Sr.

Hi Poppy, I've been thinking about you a lot the last few weeks. You have been my biggest motivation to keep going as college and ROTC kick my butt right now. I actually almost quit earlier this week but I remembered why I am doing it, for you and Dad. Every day I go to training early in the morning and see the sunrise and think of you and I know you are there with me supporting me and watching over me. It's hard but I want to make you proud and accomplish things I know you would be so happy to see me do. I wish you could be here to see it but I know you are watching over me. I visited you the other day when things got really tough and it helped me remember that I'm doing this for you. I miss you everyday and wish I got the opportunity to get to know you. I love and miss you and can't wait to make you proud and follow in your footsteps. Continue to watch over my Mom and Dad and keep them safe. Talk to you soon.

Driving down Nova Rd I thought of you today. Thinking about how blessed I am to call you friend. I've been going through a rough time right now. I wish it was still midnight and us working out at Golds. I wish I had time to pick your ear and get some guidance. I always trusted you and I felt comfortable telling you anything. Please know that you are my hero.

Stopped in thinking of you reminded of the date that forever changed our lives...which is in a few weeks. Can't believe it will be 12 years. It seems like yesterday I saw you in your patrol car just hours away from the most painful and indescribable despair we ever knew existed. But as I stopping by; I Was just reading a few reflections about you and I always love reading what all your fellow officers, friends, brothers in blue, family and even some strangers say about you or how you impacted their lives. I'm so honored and so proud to be your daughter. You were always my knight and shining armor. I always had thought, I would never have someone who would not only love me like you did but who would rescue me on that white horse & protect me like you did; until one day you sent me Jim. The most amazing & loving man I've ever known. I know he was made just for me...and go figure; he reminds me of you in so many ways. Thank you daddy for blessing me with this man & thank you to God. I just wish you were here; you two would be buddies and training together at our gym. Daddy...I miss you.. I love you with every single ounce of who I am and my heart will never fully recover losing you. Just watch out for mommy & Jason & let us all remain healthy so we can reminisce about you until our time is up.
I love you, I miss you, and life has never been the same without you. See you someday on the other side & will look forward when I do get there to give you the warmest hug and then our life for eternity will be complete again. Night daddy.

Hey Bob,
Has it really been 10 years? I have been thinking about you alot recently. This week would normally be my annual motorcycle trip to the mountains. Not this year. This year I am on a journey of a different kind. The destination is known, but whether I will get there is anything but certain. It's the most challenging undertaking of my life. And I'm taking you with me. I think you'll enjoy the trip. We leave November 1, 2014 at 7 a.m. CST.

Opened up my computer today and there you were! The ironic thing is that i have been thinking of you so much and even today found myself watching a movie (a tear jerker like we would watch together) and it was of a father & daughter dancing together. Very ironic since you have been on my mind so much lately. Perhaps its a sign your listening and that everything im struggling will be ok because your here with me??
When I close my eyes tightly I still see your amazing smile and your infectious laugh.
Anyway, just stopping in and thinking of you. You still and will always be the love of my lifetime.
You are always and forever in my heart & in my soul. I love you daddy and I miss you so much. Wish u were here....

I knew Bob when I was a Daytona Beach Police Explorer from 1980 to 1982. Bob was a mentor to many of the Police Explorers and one of the Officers that truly understood what the Explorer program was about and how to guide young men and women in their pursuit of a career in Law Enforcement. I always looked up to Bob and thought to myself "That's the guy I want to be like when I am a cop someday". Thanks for friendship Bob. Former DBPD Unit #22 Police Explorer Lieutenant Colonel 1980 to 82 and VCSO Explorer Program Lieutenant 1982 to 84.

I have one very important prayer. I pray that one day the whole truth about the circumstances leading to your death will come out. I pray the souls of all those that know what was never revealed will have a conscious and be compelled to find your son (even if it is anonymously), but they will tell us what really happened that night. We deserve the peace of mind.

We were thinking of you on your Birthday, and could smell that wonderful chocolate "Grim" cake. Abigail asked what gifts Bobby and I would get for you on Birthdays, anniversary, Christmas, and Father's Day. We sure recall the Father's Day time we took you and Linda out for dinner to surprise you both with grandparent excited you were. She asks so many questions about you, and we never run out of stories. She is anxious to ask Aunt Mary some of the childhood stories. We thought of you today when we had to let her head out to school after this past week's shooting that took so many children and adult's lives. We miss you so much. Watch over us all as we know you do.
