Hey Sarg. I think of you all the time. It was a honor to have you as my made me laugh and feel happy to be at work. I will always regret the time I was going to help you with a detail but was called to do help some one else...I still have your number in my work phone under VICK...and as long as I have that phone I wont change it. Like everybody else you touched, I miss you but will never forget you.....I hope I can be 1/2 the police officer you made your family proud...

I can't believe it's been 5 years today. We buried another officer today, Sgt. Joe Bergeron from Maplewood PD. He was killed Saturday on the eastside. A lot of memories came rushing back when we were hunting for his killers. He sounds like he was alot like you and one thing he shares ...... you are both HEROES. I think of you often, especially today!......... Bru

Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All i have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.

Jerry - This morning a NSP officer was shot and killed in the line of duty. It brings it all back - and feels so close to home. You were the last MN officer shot and killed - and now one from your home town. Made us think of you and remember just how much we miss you - and even four years later - how that hole in our lives is still there.

Yippy finally justice was served. I want to say thank you to all my family and friends that have stood by me for the past 3 and a half years. It is amazing that it took this long to put this to rest. But I can't tell you how relieved I am. Thank You.

Life continues Jer.
The kids are growing up and we're getting older. We were looking at the pencil marks in the garage from when we measured our heights and Clayton was shorter than me at that time. Definitely the kids are growing up.
Occasionally Amarillo By Morning blares from the stereo and you know who says the same thing..."this reminds me of Jerry". Then he begins to reminisce about the good old days. Memories for a lifetime; we hold on tight to those memories now.
Thanks for the friendship.

I don't know what brought me to your page tonight. I have thought of you often over these past three+ years. I was working the night you died, and was at the scene within a minute or two of the call.

That night was so surreal, almost like being in a dream, or more like a nightmare. I went home that morning and cried for a long time.

I hope you have found peace and I know you are watching over your family.

We all miss you. I am so sorry we could not help you that night.

Hey Jer,
I've been thinking of you so much. I've been thinking about everthing you miss out on every day. Your little girl got her permit today and first thing she did was jump in your truck and took it for a spin. I asked her what she thought you might be thinking and she said,"Go faster" I have no idea where she gets that from!! She said she would like to be a cop in a high speed chase. Yikes!!! Clayton is off at school and that is very different. I cried of course dropping him off. I will cry every time I drop him off. I miss my little bud already. He will do good. It's just me you need to keep an eye on.:) It's hard to believe in about a month it would have been our 20 year anniversary. Just think of the gift you would have had to buy. You gave me the greatest gift of all 2 kids. And the flea bag too. She goes strong. She will be 8 in a few days. I know if you have your way I will be blessed with her for many more years. Watch over us... Love you lots,

Connie Vick

Wow - today would have been 45! Madeline wants to send a card to heaven for you - and has not quite figured out how. She thinks she will attatch it to a balloon. Whatever works I guess. You know we miss you dearly - and talk of you all the time. Your godson may not actually remember you on his own - but he will know you through our memories. Kids ask so often if we can go to your house and play with your kids and Daisy! Although they always act totally scared of that little, crazy dog - they have a love/hate relationship with her! We miss you all so much! You were such a big part of our life - in so many ways.

We went out to dinner with Clayton on Friday. It was so nice to spend some one on one time with him. He is just so darned handsome - and he towers over both of us! Off to college this week - that is so big. Missed Amanda - but she had a party with her friends. Next time!

Time with those kids sure has gone quickly. I have so many memories of them when they were younger than even mine. We had lots of good times.

Anyway - just wanted to remember your birthday today. Hope your heavenly celebration is "grand" and that you are having the time of your life. We will see you again - and will have so much to catch up on.

To my son Sgt. Jerry Vick who was taken away from us so horribly; It will be your birthday on Friday. The hurt, the pain of living without you is more than I can stand at times. It can just tear at you all the time. One thing I know is we were created for a purpose by our creator to live on this earth, and my son you did just that. Your name is mentioned by someone every day who you helped in some way. Just today from a mother whose daughter you saved off the streets, saying you are their angel, and there are many more. From your family in the St. Paul Police Department and your friends you had in your life, no matter where I go I’m referred to as Sgt. Jerry Vick’s mother. They love you so much. Your son Clayton and daughter Amanda, I see so much of you in them and hugging them is like hugging you. They are both very beautiful kids and we talk of you all the time. I thank God for that every day, for giving me them from you because every life is a gift from God for a purpose. So Hon I know I will be with you again. Keep Dad out of trouble. Love you so much and the rest of the family are struggling with our loss on this earth. I also pray for signs from you and I do get them. How about instead of pennies some bigger ones?
Love you so much always and always,
Mom Maggie

Jerry, your mom emailed me today to let me know that Friday is your birthday (8/22). I still think of you so often, and your picture is up in my house and my daughter's. She is doing well, you would be so proud. Pulling A's in college, and raising a beautiful, headstrong little boy (18 months) all by herself.

You will always be my hero. Lots of people helped my daughter along the way, but you were the most impactful and steadfast. You called her regularly and gave her tough love. "If you don't stay straight, I'll be the one to book you back in jail." That helped her so much during her hardest times. And, the fact that you gave me your cell phone number and told me that I could call you anytime made me feel protected as well.

I still have your cell phone # in my phone, and I still have you in my back pocket to call upon when I need advice or protection.

Thank you for all you did for her and the other women. You saved my little girl and now I am a proud and happy grammy too!

Always in admiration and appreciation,

Mary M.

Clayton bought US dinner tonight. We could get spoiled by that. We had another party last week to celebrate his graduation and acceptance into college. Other's already look up to and admire him. He is strong but easy-going, and in some ways very much like his parents. I know he will shine in college - academically and socially.

Blue lights still shine in your honor every night. No one will forget you or what you accomplished here.

Love T
