Hey Bro. Just stopping by to say hi. Layton is growing like a weed, but I know you already know that. I tell stories about our childhood to him and he can't seem to get enough. You were one crazy kid !! I guess I never realized how much fun we had being brothers until I tell these stories to Layton. He is hardcore about wanting to be like his uncle Mike someday. He wants to not only be a cop but he wants to be a cop in Michigan. He wants to get involved in the explorers program. Layton even said "Wouldn't it be cool if I got the badge number 33 ??!" I don't know I said but if you did you'd have a lot to live up to. Keep watching over your family Bro. I miss and love you. Keep showing me the signs I'm sure you've been showing me. That's a neat trick.

Love you
Brian

When you finally stop laughing, let me know. There's a lot of disbelief about this, none more than by me.

"Junior" stuck me between "Big Red" and "DW" in the Shift Command locker room. Nice, that ought to make for some "nightmarish" thoughts and stories for a while. I see theraoy in my future.

"T-Rex" hasn't stopped laughing since he found out either...

All I can think about is "TOP GUN":
"Hey Maverick, do you still have that number for that Truck driving school we saw on TV? I think I'm going to need that".....

Happy Holidays to Denise and the family, God Bless

December 6, 2006

Denise and kids,
Well, another holiday season is upon us and with that comes a few inevitable tears as well. I just wanted to wish you and the kids a Happy Thanksgiving and know that you guys are still in my thoughts often. I know that Mike and Wayne are with us in our hearts and our memories and for that I am so very thankful. Take care and be safe.

Today would have been our 18th anniversary. It's been a rough couple of days leading up to this. Some days are so much harder than others but even if I would have known what was to happen and how hard this journey would be, I'd do it all again. I'd marry you again in a minute. The memories I have will stay with me for the rest of my life because I had the best life with you and for that I feel so blessed. Thank you for being such a great husband and father. I miss everything about you, and I love you, boo.

It so nice to come here and read the reflections left by others. I appreciate knowing that Michael is still thought about, remembered and honored. Thank you to all.

Marine Corps birthday today. Semper Fi...You were the epitome of their motto "always faithful" in everything that you did. Love you, boo.

Denise,

Thank you so much for leaving a reflection on my husband's page. It means so much to me that you reached out to me. It brings me comfort to know that I'm not the only one that feels like getting away during the holidays. I'm touched by the reflections you've left for your husband. I was reading that you went to the retreat, it sounds like it was a wonderful experience. I hope to meet you there next year.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'll be thinking of you and your children, especially during the holiday season.

MRS SCARBROUGH,
I WAS READING THE REFLECTION YOU LEFT ON OFFICERS LASATERS PAGE FOR HIS WIFE, AND REALIZED THAT I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE NAME. I READ THE ODMP EVERY DAY, AND PRIDE MYSELF IN LEAVING REFLECTIONS FOR OUR HEROS. SOMEHOW, I MISSED YOUR HUSBANDS, AND I FEEL SO BAD. BUT SOMEHOW, I STOPPED BY LARRYS PAGE AND SAW YOUR REFLECTION, WHICH BROUGHT ME HERE TO HONOR YOUR HUSBAND WITH A DESERVED REFLECTION.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU NOTICED, BUT I LEFT A MESSAGE FOR LARRYS WIFE, PRETTY MUCH SAYING THE SAME THING YOU DID TO HER. I FEEL SO BAD FOR HER. I PRAY FOR HER AND CODY, AND HOPE AND PRAY THAT SHE IS ABLE TO GET THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS IN WHICH EVER WAY SHE FEELS IS BEST FOR HER AND HER SON. THE IMPORTANT THING RIGHT NOW IN HER LIFE, IS HER AND HER SON.

MRS. SCARBROUGH, I PRAY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ALSO. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT THE KIDS KNOW THAT DADDY IS A HERO, AND DIED DOING WHAT HE LOVED, PROTECTING US.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

SERGEANT SCARBROUGH, REST IN PEACE. NEVER FORGOTTEN.

THOSE CLOSE TO THIS HERO, PLEASE TAKE COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT I, ALONG WITH MANY OTHERS ACROSS THIS LAND, GRIEVE WITH YOU. KEEP HIM IN YOUR HEART, AND PASS HIS STORY ALONG. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Just wanted to tell you Neece to hang in there. I read your reflection on another site, and had to come to your site to say hello.

I lost my dear cousin, Isaac Espinoza, 3 years ago, and I continue to think about him and all the wives that have lost their husbands. I actually met my husband at a Police Memorial. It scares me that I am married to a Police Officer now, but I pray for all of you because I can't imagine being the pain you go through every day.

Your husband is with you as you read this. He watches over you and your children everyday. Trust in this. May you trust in the Lord that he has a plan for you.

Cousin to Isaac Espinoza

Happy Halloween Mike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

October 31, 2006

Happy Halloween! Not so painful this year and for that I feel blessed. Pumpkins are carved, costumes are purchased and we're ready to have everyone here tonight. Exactly the kind of party you would have loved. Always keeping the traditions for the kids so that your memory stays strong in their minds. I love you, boo.

Thinking of you today

October 29, 2006

Hey bro. Just stopping by to read your reflections again. It blows my mind the impact you had on people in your way too short of a life. I don't think you had any idea how much people love you Mike. You wouldn't even admit that you were such a great person because that's how humble you were in life. I miss your voice on the phone. I miss sharing my hunting success with you most. When I would take a deer out of the woods you were ALWAYS the first person I thought of and called. Keep showing me your badge number. I see 33 everywhere. Thanks for that Mike. I love and miss you. You're still my hero.

till next time
