Reflections for Police Officer Bryan Scott Hurst

FOR YOU ON MEMORIAL DAY
THANK YOU BRYAN

Thank you Bryan for your service to this country and the citizens of Columbus Ohio.
On 01/06/05 you paid the ultimate sacrifice. You gave your life so that 8 others could live. How do we ever repay you for that? I still have a hard time with this. Why was my life spared and not yours? You were so young and had so much to live for. I guess that you were so special that GOD wanted you sooner than others. He has a plan for you. I'm sure that the plan has something to do with welcoming all of the other marines and officers that walk thru the gates of heaven. There have been so many lately. On earth you did your job and you did it well. Now that you are in heaven do your job as well as you did it on earth. Stand beside my father and welcome all of the military and police officers that are there too soon. Explain to them why they are there and explain to them that someday their loved ones will understand.

Love You Always
Angie

Two of our Ohio brothers fell to the evilness this week. Let them know that their sacrifice is not in vain. Let them know that their bravery for brotherhood will be forever cherished. Happy Memorial Day brother, we all miss you.

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

To Marissa and the rest of Bryan's family,
I just read Marissa's reflection about people forgetting Bryan's sacrifice and our cruisers not having Bryan's ribbon on the cruisers anymore. Marissa I want to apologize for that and try to give an explanation. We have received a new batch of cruisers and Bryan's ribbon has been hard to find. With that said, I am contacting our FOP President Jim Gilbert about this. I am going to request that the FOP obtain more ribbons and put out a massive email requesting officers to place these ribbons on the new batch of cars. I do not want any of us to forget the sacrifice Bryan, Marissa,and their family gave on that day. I want all of us especially CPD not to forget our fallen brother. I/we will get the ribbons on the cars. I am so sorry. He has not and will not be forgotten.
In Christ,
Don

Bryan,

I am sorry I did not get out to see you yesterday. I was biten by a dog, in my face, last week and have not felt like doing much. I think of you everyday Bryan. I keep your image in my mind. So often I look at Malia and what she is doing, wondering if that is what you would of said, done or laughed at too. Last week Malia ask me why I have wool in my nose. I guess that is what my stitches looked like to her.
I will come and visit you this weekend and spend a little time with you. I can't believe that is has been over two years. Malia is so beautiful and full of life. I took her to the Zoo for Easter and she got a ton of candy. We were eating lunch and she kept asking me when we were going back to the zoo. She loved the monkeys and wanted to climb in the cage with them. She gives awesome hugs. I am sure she would of wanted to take one of the monkeys home with her. At some point I know she is going to sneek my cat home. My cat will only tolerate Malia, all the other kids she runs away from. Malia likes to climb on the back of my couch and lay down with the cat. The other day she got my cat purring and was thrilled to hear Desi making that noise. Now Malia wants to make her purr every chance she gets. Just glad Desi goes along with Malia.
Well Bryan I hope you had a great Birthday in Heaven. I will see you Saturday!!

Happy Birthday Bryan! Just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you today. I remember bringing you brownies and chocolate chip cookies to snack on when I visited. Hopefully you are enjoying some in heaven! You are missed by many Bryan. Continue to watch over all of us. Your bravery never ceases to amaze me, and I continue to look to you when I feel stressed. Malia is so cute, and so smart. Her vocabulary is amazing. She loves to sing too. She has your sense of humor. Today she brushed Freckles and Zoe and put hair pretties on their long ears. Continue to watch over all of us. Holding you close to my heart always.

Gumper,

I don't know where the time has gone. Seems like just yesterday everything was OK. Over 2 years later and I am still a little lost and confused. Just going through the motions I guess. All is well here though. Kids and wife are great. I finally started my basement company. Wish you were here to do it with me. We could flood a couple more together.

Happy Birthday! Miss and love you you big loser.
