Thinking of you and all of your loved ones as Christmas arrives. Continue to watch over all of them and I know that they will be thinking of you as they always do for they carry precious memoires of you in their hearts.

I never had the opportunity to meet you, but I think about you alot. I began working in the 2nd Division about a year after your death. I walk past your face each time I go into the roll call room. Whether I'm going to roll call, running to the restroom between runs or escorting a suspect to speak to detectives, I think of you and your family. I just wanted you to know that you've made an impact on those you never had the chance to meet in person and will continue to do so. LMPD, especially the 2nd Division, is a great family and you will always be in our hearts. Thank you.

You know you would be 32 now and it's weird to think of that...Every love song that I hear about growing old together makes me sad that we won't get that...miss you my best friend. You were such a good listener.

Thanks for all you have given me by the way that you lived your life. One of the boys was talking about how he always used to sit in the back of your car when you gave him rides places and then you wouldn't let him out. LOL I loved hearing that story, it was so you:) Thanks for showing such love to me and my family.

I know that you are having good times up there and I can't wait to see you again. Tell the boys HI for me and that we miss them too.

love ya lots

We thank God everyday for the difference you made on our department. Thanks for bringing Rebecca into my life. I love her as a sister, and know you had your hand in that. I can not wait to meet you one day. I will always take care and watch over Rebecca, because I'm sure that's why you brought us together. Thanks for the sacrifice, and the friendship.

Well babe I'm going to give it another try. LOL Been running every day so...not really sure what it means that I'm doing this on our anniversary. Please ask God to let you run with me:) Miss you my love

I cannot in any way shape or form wrap my brain around the fact that it has almost been 4 years since you were killed.

Another Christmas without you. Hope it was beautiful in Heaven. Ring in 2009 with a huge party up there! Thinking of you always

you would have been 31 yesterday. I miss you and I love you so much. Thanks for being such a wonderful person.


October 1, 2008

Time passes so very quickly. I can still remember the rainy day now 3 1/2 years behind us... You are still everywhere.


August 27, 2008

Dear Peter,
I was cleaning out your office and I found a poem that you wrote me while we were dating but you never gave it to me. I also found that you had saved every single letter and card that I had ever given you. That made me so happy.

Thanks for letting me find that. I know that God knows just when I need reassurance and I love that he still lets you be a part of that. I miss you so much and I am so glad that you are a part of my life.


August 25, 2008

It is important (to me) to honor your memory with respect and pride and dignity.

I pray for your parents and brother daily. I know the pain inside your parent's hearts especially over you being stolen from them in such a way.

"This is my shield.
I bear it before me into battle,
but it is not mine alone.
It protects my brother on my left.
It protects my city.
I will never let my brother
out of its shadow
nor my city out of its shelter.
I will die with my
shield before me
facing the enemy.
"Gates of Fire By Stephen Pressfield

Thanks for having the courage to take up the shield. Know that we have picked up your shield and will carry on the battle. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Rebecca, Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you! I called Peters parents today to let them know I was also thinking of them! Take care and be safe on your trip!

Hi Rebecca,
I was browsing around the ODMP today and I read the reflection you left on Jeff's page. Thank you so much for your kind words. I look at the page often in hopes that all of our men made it home, but it's such a heartbreak to see the new names added to the list. It's been 4 years and sometimes it just doesn't seem real. I guess our lives will NEVER be the same. Even if you find happiness again...there is still that void that can't be filled.

I recently attended the funer of Trooper Shawn Blanton. He leaves behing his wife, Michaela and young son Tye. I had the opportunity to visit with her a couple weeks ago. I wish I could take her pain for her. Please continue to pray for her and the baby. She has such a long road ahead of her...needless to say the worry she carries for Tye. I'm sure you can relate. There is so much she will go through. Like I said...4 yrs later and I'm still shocked some days at what new emotion is going to hit me.

Well, I should go. Please contact me if there is ever anything I can do for you or if you just need to chat. My email is [email protected]

Take care and my prayers are with you always,

Rest in peace Brother, I am proud to have served with such a hero and you were taken far to early from this world and your love ones

I want to thank you for the words you provided to Joshua Norris EOW 7/5/07 who was to be my son in-law , they touched my daughter and has helped my family during a dark time. My daughter had a general idea of how large our police family was, since her grandfather retired from the force, and uncle, aunt and I are still on the job, but your reflection showed just how large the family of blue is. You and your complete family are in my families prayers. God Bless you. Peter is looking down on you smiling, you will know from that warm feeling you get when no one is near, it is him giving you a hug or the odd breeze in a room, he is letting you know he is still near.

Your ride is today. I wish that you were here so that I could ride with you:) We had such good times didn't we? I was so blessed to have you in my life.

I am so glad that people still remember you and do fun things in your honor. Tell God thanks for putting such wonderful people in my life.

I am going to the beach without you again. I think I miss you even more when I am doing the things that I know you would enjoy. But I bet that you get to see the ocean every day in heaven don't you? And knowing you, you must swim every day too:) I love you sweetheart and I will never forget.

Going back to the wall again babe. Wish you weren't on it, but I am so proud of you and all those who do the job that you did. You will always be my hero not just for how you died but also for how you lived.

Love you sweetheart and looking forward to the day when I get to see you again.

Miss you. Ask God to please let us keep lydia's baby here.
