Reflections for Police Officer II William Andrew "Drew" Henley

Met your son this weekend. It’s so crazy how many connections there are between us. We have family in Suffolk, as well as Chesapeake, Norfolk and Va. Beach. He lives in WPB right down the road from where I grew up...which happens to be in the jurisdiction of the agency my dad worked for when he passed. My dad was a Dt. in VA. And now we’ve met, hung out and I hope continue to do so. Go say hey to my dad and hang out and maybe y’all can sit together when Austin and I hang again

It's been a busy couple of days with the kids all together. Makes the day brighter to be with them. We love and miss you so much. I don't know how 11 years have passed. We continue on in our lives with a piece of our hearts gone forever. Then this day comes and I still feel the loss of you so deeply. I wonder if that will ever go away. I try to stay strong but some days it's just too much and the tears flow. Today is one of those days. I still see your smile and hear your laugh. You were such a great man.. A great father and a great friend.. But you were my best friend.. My partner.. My perfect match.. You are irreplaceable. I love you so much still.. And forever. Thank you for loving me.. Always and forever .. Me

Drew its been 10 years and I still remember that day like it was yesterday. I read all the reflections from your wife and kids and man they miss you too much and the love for you never changes. I am very proud and very fortunate to have known you because I was a fresh rookie at the time and I looked up to you and you made me the Cop I am today. Well Drew this should make you feel good and your family, I am still in Law Enforcement bud going on 11 years and I am now a Virginia State TROOPER as a Canine Handler in the Explosive Unit. I have remarried and adopted a Beautiful 6 year old daughter name Anslie. I tell me wife and daughter all the time that I want to be the perfect dad and husband like you were to your wife and kids. Thank you for everything Drew and I miss you too much. And hello Chrissy I miss you all soo much.

To my sweet wonderful loving husband.. No words will ever express the loss we felt the day we lost you.. And here we are, 10 years later, and I still feel the sorrow of that day... Life goes on.. We change.. We grow.. But you're memory remains fresh and clear in our minds.. The love never fades... I can't imagine never having shared the love of a lifetime with you.. No matter what life brings for my future, I'll always have that.. The truest purest love ever from the most amazing man! You gave me everything and I am so grateful ... Each day that passes makes the next one easier and so over time we have healed.. But we have never stopped loving and missing you.. The is a huge milestone in our lives... And we will get through this one just like the others that came before and the ones yet to come.. We will always feel the loss of you.. I miss laughing with you so much Drew.. And spaying you with the kitchen faucet.. Or cold water in the shower.. Ok those were mostly me.. But I miss having you here to play those trucks on! We always had so much fun together.. Laughing.. Loving.... Keep watching over all of us.. We still need you so much.. Love you now and forever.. Me

Chrissy Henley, loving wide

Another year has passed since you were called away and for those that love you dearly, it has felt like a lifetime since they felt your warm touch, saw your smile, heard your voice and were able to hug you. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones and protect them. You have not been forgotten.

Forgive me as I am a few days late with this posting. Thinking of you and all of your loved ones. Continue to keep watch over them and know that you will never be forgotten.

"No person is ever truly alone,
Those who live no more,
Whom we loved,
Echo still within our thoughts,
Our words, our hearts.
And what they did,
And who they were,
Becomes a part of all that we are,
Forever."

Happy Birthday baby!! You would have turned 40 today, but I know you would still only claim 29!! I sit here wondering what you would have looked like today. Would you have some grey hair? Would there be more laugh lines on your face? It's strange to only be able to think of you the way you were up until we lost you. I still your smile. I still here your laugh. Hard to believe that 6 years have past already. How far we have come without you....amazing. I still feel so connected to you in so many ways. The kids of course...they are growing so fast. Alex was looking through some old pictures the other night and there were those ones of you and the boys riding bikes in Va Bch at the other house. I remember you racing them down the street, laughing the whole time. They were all so little then. Now they are grown. Alex is driving now...that's scary! Just worrying about her the moment she steps out the door, until she gets back home. I'm losing some sleep over that! and CJ is starting Marching Band this year. No he's not going to be a flag twirler like you...ok it was a gun...whatever! You'd be proud of how they are growing. I miss the way things were. When we were ALL together, I know you know what I mean. It's hard losing more than just you. We still miss you every day...and yet, we all know you are always around....please continue to watch over all of the kids...and have a great birthday!!! OLD MAN!! all my love always...me

Hey Chrissy ~

Can you believe it's been 6 years? Time is such a crazy thing, sometimes it just crawls along and other times it just flies by. Some days it seems like yesterday Jesse was still here then others a lifetime ago. I know you understand what I mean.

Hope you and the kids are doing well. It's been a shamefully long time since we've talked - we need to catch up. The next few weeks are crazy for us but as soon as things settle down I will give you a call.

I'm thinking of you. Take care.
