Darling girl, I think of you a lot because of the trial which will begin for poor Bryan. I remember the hurt of hearing of his death so soon after your own. Yesterday, Grandpa Steve and I were remembering a good time with you and Rob, and there were many of those. I miss your sense of humor and kindness and joy that you felt in your whole soul. I see you often in my days and thank God that I knew you and you helped so many. God bless you Melissa. Denise

Happy Groundhog Day, Melissa. You know how I love to celebrate all holidays, even the goofy ones. I saw pictures of animals at different zoos today and I remembered our good times at the zoo, starting when you were pregnant with Lanie and the last time when we were with Lanie and Owen in during fall. I remember how you would tease us about the wolverine to get a rise out of OSU fans. I remember so many of those times with fondness and think of what I should do for your children. Help me. Denise

Mel,
Just got home me and Lanie had a shopping day, she got 2 new dolls and some other things and I picked up a new CD. It has George Strait on it and I was thinking about the time we seen him in the horseshoe you were so mad at me for bringing the other person I brought. I am sorry for that I just new after what had happened at the last concert I invited you to I didn’t want to have to try to find a replacement at the last minute. I didn’t do it to upset you. Im listening to I can Still Make Cheyenne. It brings back a lot of memories some good and some not so good. As I sit here looking at your picture on this web site I think you are one of way to many people on here and that this list will never stop growing no matter how much we all wish it would. As long as their are laws there will be people drawn to law enforcement for some unknown reason and people to break the laws and this list will never stop. I was taking a friend home tonight and I went past the S.O.B. house that took you from us I wanted to just stop and burn it to the ground but I know he is not their and it would do no good for me to do something like that (sorry a bit bitter today) I want to go curl up in bed and forget this day but I cant Lanie is not feeling good Grandma is playing with her right now so I am letting a bit of it out I was just made to feel pretty useless a few weeks ago and you know I cant stand that it ticks me OFF! But I will get over it as I always do. So we got a cat its name is cinnamon Lanie named it she is white and gray and very playful.
Im going to go for now
LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU

Mel,
Ive been sitting here thinking there was a time when I didnt think I could go with out talking to you or seeing you well its been 13 1/2 months since the night you where taken from us and not a day goes by that I wish you were here. Lanie is having a pretty hard time right now im not sure why but she isnt sleeping again and she is realy missing you so much it hurts me to see her so unhappy at times. After Eathans funeral I came home and thought about a lot of the good times we used to have together and how much fun it used to be now our daughter says she is going to pick me out a girlfriend so I can get married and she can have a step mom. I always tell her even if I do get married that you will always be her mom she tells me she knows but she wants a step mom because you cant be here with her. Do they make step "friends" because if they do I want one just like you. well going to go for now
LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU

Dear Melissa, I miss you on days like today when I hear about all the ugly crimes that are in the world. You and your fellow officers worked and work so hard with so little respect for what you do. A co worker and I were talking about all of the ugliness of cruel people hurting others and again I remembered how you tried to make every place you went a safe place for the children, the elderly, the hurting and needing people who were and are taken advantage of. You were so loving of heart and so strong, much stronger than I ever could be and that made me proud of you. I felt protected by you, even though I was older, and now it seems hard to not have you protecting me and all of our loved ones because you are in heaven. I miss you so much and love you. Denise

Mel,
Just getting home from Fairfield County for the showing of Ethan, I hope you have meet him by now and take him under your wing and show him the way and let him know we will get his family through this no matter what it takes. I've told the guys at the Fairfield County Sheriffs office to get used to my ugly mug for a while as I will be checking on them quit often. I dont know how he is doing it but TJ is assigned to the family that man has gone through more in the last year than anyone I can think of. and he does it all with out missing a beat. God watch over him he is a very good man and needs a break. Im going to go for now

LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU

Rob,

I just wanted to thank you for being with us the night that Ethan was taken from us. I also want to thank you for being at his viewing tonight. Saying that our lives have been changed for ever is a gross understatement, and it is such a shame that you and I had to meet under such circumstances. I want to thank you again for being with us in our time of grief, and I know that Melissa would be proud of you.

Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
Your Brother,

Melissa,

Your family has passed that one year mark and I know that it has not been easy for them. The broken hearts and grief being suffered by your family and freinds all because of one individual who had a past history of hurting others because of his actions. I hope that every day for the rest of his life he thinks of all the pain and broken hearts he has generated because of his actions. My son Michael was killed in the line of duty also by a drunk driver. I'm sure like him, you loved your job. In our case the other driver was also killed in the accident so my family did not have to suffer the trial process as your family did. We were able to get a new law passed in his name in our State to change our DUI law here in Illinois to give officers on the street more to work with. Keep watch over your family and friends and wrap your wings around your loved ones to help ease their grief, including your Dad as I met him in Washington, DC when we honored you and my son. I know the grief he feels. There is no greater loss than to lose a child. Protect your family from harm.
You will never be forgotten.

I am so grateful for all of the wonderful police officers all over this great country who work so hard to keep our roads safe. When I went out on New Year's Eve and safely got off the roads by 10, I prayed as we were driving on route 24 in Northwest Ohio that all of the officers and the public be safe. My friend reminded me that the route we were on was one of the worst accident routes in Ohio and we should always be careful when driving. I am glad that I do not need a drink to get through each day like those people who choose to drink and drive and possibly take another wonderful human being like my Melissa. Thank you, officers, for the work you do each day. God bless you.

It has been a strange holiday without you. My life is changed so much, as you know, and I miss the time I could talk to you and cry with you and be with you. I sent presents to the kids, I hope they liked them. Steve got to sing with Lanie December 23 and he enjoyed that so much. I miss everyone and yet I feel a pain so deep that I am afraid to see Lanie and Owen because my grief might overwhelm them. I try to call and yet I know it isn't your voice on the other end. You would tell me to straighten up and do what is good and right, so I will. I send my holiday love to all of your family and co workers who are doing so much to make sure no one else be killed by a drunk driver. Love you lots. Denise
