Great game yesterday, you must be having a great time with Woody!

I hope you like the ornament this year. It has been along time since I have visted your grave. I guess going makes it real that your gone.
Malia is so beautiful,very smart and funny. If I say something to her she doesn't like, she is very quick with a come back that just cracks me up. She never misses a thing.
I think of you every day, even if it is just for a second. I keep your picture in my night stand so that I won't forget to think about you and your family. Your blue ribbon I keep in my kitchen.
I was wearing a t-shirt with a NYPD patch on it, and a man stopped me to tell me how awful policeman were and they shoot to kill. My comeback was, "I guess if you lived by the law, you wouldn't have to worry about it". It made me angry, but I had to stop and tell him about you. I think I took him by surprise, because he told me he was sorry for speaking that way.
God Bless you Bryan!

Officer Hurst, I came across your story of heroism as I was checking on my friend who recently made the ultimate sacrifice in Toledo. I want you to know that you are being thought of throughout this country. Your actions were heroic, your presence and will to fight, at that bank undoubtably saved lives. You lived up to your sworn oath and you are an inspiration to us all.

As a born and raised "Ohioian" I am a true OSU fan as are you. I have to let you know the Illinois loss hurt but we let the Wolverines know who's boss! On our way to Pasadena!

To your family, your husband, father, son, and friend will be with you always and he will continue to look out for you from above. Officer Hurst will you tell my friend Officer Keith Dressel that we are thinking about him down here and you can tease him about the OSU victory over Michigan.

May God watch over your family and the members of the Columbus Police Department.

Please keep me safe liek you did January 6. In the past week we have had two major bank robberies within a mile from my bank. Days like this I want to quit and give up. But, then I think of how you did not give up. He should not have to destroy my career. He has changed so many lifes and I should not give him the victory of changing my life. Please help me get through this and not be afraid. Always and forever my number one hero.

I know you are laughing in heaven when you hear Malia say "Go Bucks; Michigan sucks." She also gives a great cheer with OH - IO. She proudly recites the Pledge to our flag without missing a word. Please know that I continue to honor your memory and the tremendous sacrifice you made. Continue to watch over all of us.

Hi Bryan, I know I have not wrote for a long time but I still visit here each night. I thought as time went on things would become less painfull, but that is not the case, bad things keep happening to good people. I know you can't protect us all or watch out for us all, but please know your always in my thoughts and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Keep watch over those who cannot be with us right now. Your our Angel and Hero always!

Today we have lost another Officer and good friend. Jason Tormasi was taken from us early this morning on his way into work. Bryan please welcome him into heaven and take care of him. We all are in mourning and pray for him and his family as we still do for you. Please watch over him and continue to watch over us. We miss both of you dearly. Thank you for everything you both have done to keep us safe. We will continue to make you both proud!

Devil Dog,
I posted your ODMP Profile on the patrol board here at MCB Quantico PMO for all military police Marines to see. Also passed your story to other young Marines to give them an example of what a Warrior is. Semper Fi.

On September 11, 2001 72 Law Enforcement Officers were killed by an act of terrorism. On January 6, 2005 a thug terrorized your bank and you defended it, saving many lives at the expense of yours. I think about you every day but many more tears are shed for you on this day of rememberence. GOD Bless.

Remembering you and the sacrifice that you made.

I want you to know that you are not forgotten. Every day when I wake up I put a memorial band on my wrist to remember what you gave up so others may live. I ask that you watch over all of us who are trying to become a police officer and those who already are. I know it can be dirty work but someone has to do it. Thanks again. and God Speed!

Unfortunately, Donnie and I had to break our tradition Saturday. But, it didnt keep me from toasting one in your honor. I did however, have one with your brother. Regardless, we won and amazingly Michigan lost. We all miss you and hopefully I'll see you on the 8th.

Rest in peace brother, we'll get it from here.


September 2, 2007

I was thinking of you today - first game of the season. I guess I was reflecting a bit today and thoughts came to you. I just wanted to say that you are not forgotten and that your memory and what you did for all of us that day will never fade. The Bucks won! Rest softly hero!
