Hard to believe that another year has just about gone by. I always think about you and your bravery, but I was especially thinking about you today as a Clark County Deputy was killed. Please continue to watch over us, the Deputy and all of her co-workers. We know that you are an angel on our shoulders.

I have your photo badge that Joy gave me in my car visor and your mini Columbus badge too. is a tribute Please kiss Zoe for me and tell her Freckles is enjoying being the "Head Hound". Continue to watch over all of us here, Bryan. Meena joins you in heaven now too so you have more company.

I am thankful and will always be thankful for you. I still have your badge from your funeral at my desk, and when people ask me about it I tell them you are my hero, and it reminds me that life is way too short....

Thinking of you today Bryan and how "Thankful" I am that you were who you were. There are several of us that would not be here had it not been for you! I send my thanks and loving wishes to you today!

I will never forget what you did that day.

Bryan and I were not much more than rookies, and although we were not actually partners, were working a car together. We had returned to the substation, which was little more than a glorified closet, for dinner. As we were eating, the senior officer on the precinct (let's just call him Klisines)came in to use the restroom. He asked if we would watch his gunbelt as he did so. Bryan tells him, "Sure, no problem."

Officer Klisines removed his belt and left it on a table. Our gunbelts aren't like a normal belt-- the buckle stays on it, and a hook attaches to the back of the buckle. To remove it, we don't unbuckle, we unhook it. So, instead of deciding how tight to cinch it each time we put it on, the gunbelt stays the same length.

While Klisines was in the restroom, Bryan got up and moved the buckle, making it tighter. He then resumed eating. Out comes Klisines, and sure enough, he just automatically tried to put on his now too-tight gunbelt, just like any of us would have. It was hilarious to watch as Klisines struggled unsuccessfully to get it hooked.

I once left my hat in the substation, and although I was never able to prove it, I believe Bryan was the one that filled it with water and put it in the freezer. I'm not sure if Bryan figured it out, but when he later made the mistake of leaving his hat, another officer and I removed his hatbadge and ran Bryan's hat up the flag pole.

Semper Fi, Gump!

Dear Bryan,
A great day for OSU football! I know you will continue cheering on the Buckeyes this year. You and Woody sit together and give the OH-IO from the best seats of all. Continue to watch over us. Miss you always.

Hi Bryan,
Just wanted to let you know I have not forgotten you or the huge sacrifice you made. Malia has your dimple. You would be very proud of her and Marissa. Continue to watch over all of us. My respect for law enforcement is forever strengthened because of you.

Thinking of you today. You would be amazed on how many people we ask now to remove their hats in the bank lobby for the protection of customers and employees and the customers yell at us!!! I want to scream at them and say hey bank robberies do happen and they don't always have a good ending. Thank you for being our hero and I am really sorry you left to early in life. I think of you often..
