Officer Feltis,
Just stopping in as I think about your daughter today. We had another wonderful week at camp this summer. I was blessed to spend it as your daughters mentor. We has a really special week again this year. What a wonderful, compassionate, smart and beautiful young woman she is. You are a constant and loving memory for her. God bless and please continue to watch over us.

Officer Feltis,

I had the honor of spending the week with your Daughter and wife at COPS Kids Camp this week. Your memory lives on in the lives of those who love you. Your daughter is an amazing young woman. She has a heart of gold and is a sensitive and caring young woman. No doubt a tribute to you and your wife and the love your family shared.

I am inspired by the strength of those you left behind and their love and dedication to you, and others, who have made the ultimate sacrifice. God Bless you and keep you close to Him and your family. Rest in Peace Sir and thank you for your service.

Today would have been our 25th wedding anniversary. James continues to be loved and greatly missed from our lives. We are blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people some we knew before 11 January 2005 and other that came into our lives at your injury and passing. James would be so proud of our daughter she is growing up to be a strong, confident, and caring young lady. You will never be forgotten.
Much Love, Mary

Officer Feltis, it has been six years since your passing and the scars from your death still run deep. We think of you often and are reminded of our loss as we enter the roll call room each day. Our agency has grown and our mission has expanded in the years since you left us. I think you would be proud of how far we have come. We miss you brother!

Dear Mary,

Please know that James and your family remain in our thoughts regularly. We remember that James's intention on January 11 was to protect the public as he did throughout his career. We also remember the huge sacrifice that you and Mary Elizabeth have made and while we honor you all during this week of remembrance, please know that we remember you during the entire year.

Officer Feltis-

I'll be returning to the Pentagon on Wednesday to welcome all of the riders from Law Enforcement United. The arrival ceremony will be held only a few hundred yards from where you were taken from us. I was at the Pentagon that fateful day and will always remember the sacrifice you made in protecting everyone who worked and visited there.

You will never be forgotten.

Sincerely,
Chris Cosgriff

James, Mary and Mary Elizabeth,

I am leaving this note to let you know that James, you are not forgotten. We often think of how things could have been different. I will ride once again in the Police Unity Tour and feel it is my honor to honor you.

Mary and Mary Elizabeth, my thoughts and prayers are with you always. May God Bless you both.

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.
