Darling angel, please watch over the motorists this holiday weekend. If one drunk driver is off the road, it will be a blessing to all of us. I have been thinking about you a lot this week and the children. I pray that all of your family is well and know that I care for every one of them.

hello melissa. i miss you. i wish i could be in DC to honor Bryan and all the others. i wish i could be there with lanie. maybe next year. this is such a difficult time for everyone. i just want to see your awesome smile one more time. please watch over lanie, she needs you.

love always,

May 13, 2006

I remember being in Washington about a year ago. This year, I chose not to go because I have such sad memories of your death and for Bryan, whose name will be added this year to the wall. So many officers die and my heart goes to all of them. I wish I could be with Lanie and Owen. I didn't get Owen's card out to him for his birthday because I started crying, remembering when you gave birth to him. I pray the officer's families get the warmth and love that they need on this trip. Watch over Rob, Lanie and Irene in Washington. Keep your eyes on the fine people who are mourning all of the officers Miss you and love you, Denise

Thinking of you at Easter. I know the kids would have loved to have you do all those wonderful things with them that you did at all the holidays. Life is so very different without you and we still all miss you very much. Be with us as we celebrate Easter and watch over the travelers so that they may not get killed by a drunk driver..

Hey wanted to take sometime to say hi comming up on Easter and It is a hard time because we both love this holiday for the kids it allways made us smile. I just wish Owen could had more than just One with you. We got the verdict from the appelit court they overturned Harpers sentencing and sent it back to the lower court for a new sentenceing kind of made me realy mad but thats life I guess. I have been very angry about a lot of stuff latley and well im just missing you I woke up at 3:20 am the other night and sat in the chair waiting for you to come through the door again and you didnt. I havent done that in a while. Lanie is doing good she is looking forwared to going to DC but she dont want to do the COPS&Kids Stuff but i think once we get their she will have a good time.

Im going to go for now keep watching over everyone

April 14, 2006

Hey I just heard that the appeal Harper asked for was granted, he will be re-sentenced... I will be back in court again to show support for you and your family.. I'm just 2 Drunk Drivers away from 700 since I started my "crusade" on Jan 2002.. 698 drunks and several more to go , all in your honor as well as others who have been taken from us by DUI drivers.. Keep watching over all of us... You are not forgotten!!!

I know its been a while but thing were going pretty good, Lanie is 4 foot tall now and as rowdy as ever. We talk about you more she is finally letting some thing out and last night I had to tell her That Jacob Harper is going to have to be re-sentenced, they found 2 parts of it did not follow the new law that our lovely state passed and decided not to tell anyone again. So please watch over us all and keep a very close eye on your mom and dad for me. I tried to call the people from C.O.P.S. but of course as usual I get no response. Im getting so tired of that your mom and dad stayed here the other night, it was a lot of fun to have them here.
Im sorry right now im going to have to go
I Love You and Miss you so Much

Dearest Melissa, I went to the crash site for the first time. I wasn't too sure how strong I would be. I cried, of course, and all the memories of that night when the officers were in my living room and the fears and hurt and unbelief. By going to the crash site, it reinforces my belief of how horrible the crime of drunk driving is and how wrong it is that in your going out to help someone, Mr. Harper took you away from your family, your children and all of us. Protect us, officers, so no one should go through that pain. Denise

The boken chain
We little knew that morning, that God was going to call your name,
in life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same..
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home..
You left us peaceful memories
your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side..
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will Link again..
We love you
Julie, Mom, Dad, Mike,Martha,Dean, Sharon, Cary, Tonya
And all your Nephews

I thank all of the officers who calmly do their duty. You will never get the respect and honor that you deserve but when we the public need you, you are there. Every officer on this memorial page was out there to help us and paid for it with their lives. I ask that every one remember to be kind and thank an officer for their everyday help.

Melissa, keep a close eye on Denise, I think she really misses you.

Denise, may God watch over and help you to cope.
