Thanks for being you and for picking me to love. It was so nice of you:) I miss you and I wish that I could call you for advice on how to handle all the stuff in life that drives me crazy. LOL You were always good at knowing what to do.
I am going to Thunder today and you won't be there for me to come and visit:( I know that you are glad that you don't have to work traffic. Please ask God to watch over our men and women of public safety today and help keep them safe.
I love you,

Almost three years and there are still no words to describe your sacrifice. I think about you everytime I see an officer doing his job and I watch them to make sure they are okay. You and your family are in my daily thoughts and prayers and know that someday you will all be reunited in his kingdom away from this wicked world. But for now I'll watch over your brothers here and you watch over us all there. Rest easy Sir.

I pray for those of us you left behind everyday, but especially as we approach 3 years since that day. I know what it's like to lose a sibling so I always find myself thinking so much about your brother. Everyone misses you. 3 years seems like an eternity and a moment all at the same time.

March 18, 2008

We haven't forgotten you or your sacrifice.

Holding your family and friends up to God for a little extra peace that passes understanding so they can continue to rejoice at where you are and to realize that it is O.K. to be happy.

Rebecca we are still admiring your love, and your faith. What a testimony for the Lord!

God Bless You Always!

I seriously can't believe it's almost been 3 years... You're still missed and it still hurts like it's Wednesday all over again, buddy.

March 12, 2008

I will be praying for you and your family this month and always. Knowing the Lord will comfort you.

Dreamed that you came back last night and that you were really tan:) I miss you being here with me. I know you are having fun up there but I really miss talking to you.

Steven and Katy named their baby after you. Steven said that so far he has been pretty laid back, just like you.

I am so glad that I got to have you for a while, I wish that it had been longer. I guess I would have wished that no matter how long I had you with me. Thanks for everything baby, you're the best and my hero!!

Ask God to hold us really tight, you know this month is always really hard.
Love you lots,

Merry Christmas my love. We will light a candle for you today when we open the gifts. We always talk about how much we miss you. Ben talked about you the other day, he was asking why this happened.

I know that you will have a great Christmas up there because of all the angels singing to Jesus:) Have fun sweetheart.

Love your wife,

Hey baby,

Remember our last Christmas together? It was the first one we had being married and it was so nice to wake up in our house and have our tree and be together before we went to see our extended families. I remember wondering when we would have babies with us to look at the pretty lights. I remember how content I was and how very happy it made me just to be with you that Christmas morning.

Do you remember what you gave me? You had gotten me that first Christmas ornament that Dori had told you to buy. I remember when I walked up on the two of you when you were talking about it. You had that grin on your face that you got when you had a secret that you knew I would like. And you were so happy that I liked it. LOL You were so funny.

I still haven’t decorated, haven’t really since you were killed. It would seem kind of pointless to put the lights on the tree if you weren’t here to say that the garland went on first:) I know that the celebration in heaven must beat this all to pieces and I am so glad that you are having fun. I don’t wish you back babe, I know that you are better off, but there are times that I ache with missing you. I just wish I could sit for one more morning and look at your smiling face.

You were such a joy and blessing in my life and I am so grateful for you. I have heard it said that with great joy comes great sorrow and I guess that’s true. But you know what? I would do it again you made it so worth it!!! Thank you for loving me so much and for letting me know what that feels like. You are the best. Ask God to help me be strong and make you both proud and I will see in the morning.

Your wife,

P.S Give our nephew Peter a kiss for me and tell him we miss him lots too!!

I'm having a hard time understanding the job and the sacrifice. I wish I could understand it more and bring "my cop" back from feeling so lost right now. Your unnecessary death reminds me not to quit even when it's as tough as it is right now.

December 10, 2007

My thoughs are with all of your loved ones during this holiday season as I know these days are really tough to get through. All they can do is take one day at a time. Continue to keep watch over them and protect them from harm. I have decorated the exterior of my home in all blue lights for Christmas and one of those lights will be lit every night until New Years in your memory as my way of saying you have not been forgotten. You are a true hero.

Dear Peter, Rebecca and all of your family and loved ones. I think of you today and everyday! I know Pete, you must be so happy patroling the streets of Heaven. Everyone is so proud, you are a true HERO! not for the way you gave your life, but for the way you LIVED your life. I did not know you Peter when you were here, but I feel like I know you now. Rebecca I admire the way you love and honor your husband, you are a true angel. By reading the things you write to Peter, he is so lucky to have had you in his life. I will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong and always hold your head high, for you have so much to be proud of!

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the Gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Miss you sweetheart!!! Thanks for reminding me of all our good time:) You're the best and I can't wait to see you again!! I am working on school, wish you were here to listen to me cry about it.LOL Love you!!
