Thinking of you today on this 19th Year Anniversary of your passing. I will never forget that night patrolling the streets with you and ultimately getting into the foot pursuit with you and you apprehending the suspect. I miss you my friend. Forever RIP Drew.

Hey Uncle,

It’s been a very long time since you sat with me on the stairs at Thanksgiving and played with the old school cars that you gave me. Although I was only 4 years old I can still hear your voice, see your face, see your smile, laugh at your jokes and when you would toss me in the air.

I’m turning 23 this year nearly 20 years since I’ve seen you. You were such an amazing man and someone that I am proud to say is my uncle and my family. I wish that we had more time together and I know my dad misses his little brother every single day. We try to celebrate your life every single way that we know how. And I hope to one day become half the man that you were. I still have that old car set and think of you daily. I will never forget our memories even as young as I was then. They say that you remember the things and people that matter and are important and I believe that to be 100% true. I can only hope that you would be proud of the man I am today and the traditions that our family still upholds. I’m a believer in the blue and I can say with confidence that many others are too and it was all because of you. I love you uncle and I miss you every single day as many others do.

Haven't been here in a while, but I haven't forgotten you. You will never be forgotten by the Blue Family. I wanted to leave this quote from an unknown author.

"Grief never ends, but it changes.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness,
Nor lack of faith......
It is the price of Love.

I know your loved ones remember you every day and you are a true hero and will never be forgotten.

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.

Is a Kiss from Someone who lives in Heaven
