Miss you bro , Things aren't the same without you. I wish I was still in contact with Amy. I guess i kind'a dropped the ball on that one. Stop by sometime if you get a chance.

I was thinking about you today when I thought about how wonderful and grown up Darien is - he's 16 and driving! I can hardly believe it myself.

He has grown into such a smart, intuitive, and considerate young man with great values. I know you never really got the chance to know him while you were here, but I also know you would be very proud of the young man your oldest son has become.

Oh these days how I miss being able to bend your ear on my life. Just to hear your advice. Cant posible be that time again. 4 years is way to long. I do think and pray for your family. The kids have got to be so big. So this is nothing long and gushy. I just MISS YOU and YOUR SMILE. One day my brother I am sure I will see it again.
Much Love.

My Todd. Just another day without you physically here but another day with you in my heart. My how things have changed. But one thing remains constant. The memory of you. The man you were the friend you were. There will never be another you. I just really wanted to stop by and say hi and tell you that I love you and miss you everyday. Will the tears ever stop?? See you next month just like every year.

Man its been another long night at work! Im the only one working nights here in this quaint little town so it gets pretty lonely! Most nights I just ride and think! Memories, people, places, things that have happened! I think about the day we took you home alot. It was cloudy and overcast. The lights from all the cars were absolutely amazing going up through those North Ga. Mountains, it was hard! I was in the car with Bill, we were on State Band, it was really quiet for the most part as we crept through the mountains and then Holten broke the silence on the radio as he called for Radar, asking him if he saw all the lights! Then he started talking about you, his dad, his hero! I can say for myself and Im sure all the other guys that your son, broke any toughness we had at that time in those cars riding through the mountains! He knew his dad was gone but you could tell by listening to him on that radio that he was bursting with pride, as the rest of us wanted to burst with tears! That is best memory of you I have, the memory of you and your son that day, as we took you home!

Todd just wanted to say I still think about you daily. I am in Iraq as a police advisor and got here in Nov. It is just not the same without you back at home. I also pray daily for Amy and boys. I hope they are doing well.

We've added our blue candles to our Christmas decoration and we are remembering Sergeant Helcher with our blue candles. We will never forget his sacrifice or the sacrifice that your family has to make everyday you are not with them.
To the family of Sgt.Helcher we remember him and will never forget.
Sgt. Helcher just keep the signs coming and let your family know that you are close. And look Clint up and let him know that his Mom misses him and thank him for all the signs he sends. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

So crazy!! This month I have seen officers around town or on the news that from a far look like you and catch my attention. I watch them close hoping to catch a glimpse of their faces, but never do. I am hoping that even though I saw your lifeless body you are really alive out there somewhere. Can't believe another birthday has come and gone without you blowing out your candles. This fall has been amazing. The colors are so rich and bright. Guess no rain is good for something. Your voice is fading from memory. Please come to me in a dream and say hello. Miss you bunches.

As the weather turns colder and all the leaves fall, I miss you more and more. Your favorite time of year is hard to bear without you even though you are always in my heart and on my mind. Your birthday is only a few days away...what I would give to have just one more day with you. I thank God every day for the time we had...but I wish we could have had more. Everyday I'm amazed at how you shine through the kids. Holden is still a mini version of you;the way you walked, held your hands,your smirky smile when you were up to something. Logan has the mischevious giggle and the warm hugs and Haleigh wrinkles her nose the way only you could and "blonde" syndrome.:) There's so many happy memories we had but so much emptiness now that we can't make anymore. I love you...with all that I was, all that I am and all that I will ever be. Happy Birthday. You will always be my hero.

My Todd,just thinking about you and thought I would write. I do not miss you any less today than the day you left us. You are always on my mind and in my heart. I often wonder if you left this world knowing how special you were to so many. You are still affecting my life each and everyday that goes by. Marlee is so grown up. You would just FREAK!! I know you , you'd be screaming for your gun and following her around making sure the boys stayed away. She still talks about you and remembers how she was your girl till Hallie came along. But she also remembers how you told her that you wanted a little girl just like her. We both love and miss you so much. Even when things seem the darkest I just remember that when it all comes to an end YOU'LL BE THERE!!!! GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!!!

Alls well here! Haven't seen Amy since the funeral. Sent her a letter just b/f I got discharged. Don't know if she got it or not! Man I miss ya! I was telling Jay the other day a/b listening to you and Javier argue over my race that day at Chateau. It still to this day makes me laugh! Hope to see Amy and the kids one day soon!

It's been another year...three years have gone by. I and my son have been able to visit you for the past three years and I hope to continue the annual pilgramage:) I still don't know what you wanted to talk to me about during your three day work weekend, however I expect you will let me know one day:)I think about you everyday and I take you to work with me everyday with my wristband (I have one in black and silver to match my wardrobe). I have come to possess the time we had together as co-workers and friends as very special and instead of being angry, I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to become friends with you and your family. I wish you were still here to get with you regarding my son, because you had a really good relationship with him and I trusted you completely with him. Thank you for the time I got to spend with you, I just wish we had more bbq's..:) I always think of you and I have always said that you came with the house that I purchased in Braselton:)...Take care and I'm looking forward to speaking with you in the distant future...

Made it to 365 & MudCreek last weekend. What happened that day? Why did it happen? Why was your seatbelt off? Questions that will never be answered hunt me daily. Now that I made it up to the place where your life was taken, these questions are more pressing. God knows all. He does not inter fear, but brings comfort and hope. I have prayed for understanding and peace, but have not found it. Todd there is no doubt where you are now. One day when my purpose has been fulfilled I hope to meet you there. Life on this earth is short enough that a death of eternal life is a huge gift. Still miss you and think of you every time I see a police car, get into my own car and more times then I can note. Know that your life was meant for something and meant something to many.

The time has come for me to visit the place where it all ended or began. Last friday was harder then I thought. Braselton is not the same. It sure has grown up. The police are diffrent and the feeling of untity is gone. there is still a small picture of you on the web site. You did touch many here and now you are gone there is a since of coldness. For us left we live to find our place. You will ALWAYS be apart of that. Miss you so much. So what was my birthday gift anyways it's coming up again.
Time is to short. Live like you are dying.


August 1, 2008

alot has happened in the 3 years you have been gone. i know you up there watching. jason's getting married, i'm back in georgia, we both miss you and we miss amy. Things didn't turn out like we planned,nothing ever does. i find myself with a trerible void in my life now that you're gone.i never thought i'd miss you as much i do.i think about you all the time and the sunday nights at vinny's eating pizza and drinking beer. you and candy , the ice cream fight in the kitchen , the time i broke your nose, (sorry about that...but you had it coming )and fact that candy made me take you to the hospital only proves who was really in charge of that household . the cook outs and the ride alongs ...the fist time you brought Amy up to meet me and Tracy. the kids and the cows , the funny things you tell us about your work. now that i'm home, i'm going to come see you more , and i'm going to drag jason up with me. You'd like the woman he's marrying but i have a feeling you had a hand in her showing up in his life. i miss you and i hope i see you AGAIN

You and your loved ones are in my thoughts today. I know they have shed enough tears over the past 3 years that could form a small pond where they could sit next to and think of all the wonderful memories of you. Continue to watch over them and protect them from harm. You are a true hero and have not been forgotten.

3 long years of missing your baby blues and a smile that would light the sky for miles. Still have not met anyone quite like you, hope never too. Miss you.


July 11, 2008

My Todd. I miss you so much. As the 3 year mark approaches it still seems so surreal to me that you are not here. That Monday is burned into my memory never to be forgotten. I still don't understand why you had to go. So many loved and needed you in their lives. I haven't talked to Amy in quite awhile but one thing I know for sure is she still loves you more than anything even though life requires her to continue without you.Saw some friends from B-ville not long ago and they said Holden still looks like "Mini-Me". I knew he would. Just wanted you to know that you are always in my heart and on my mind as are Amy and the kids. It's just not the same without you or them.

Almost three long lonely years have now past without your beautiful eyes and smile...I still hear your voice. Forever in my heart will you live. I love you and miss you.

June 30, 2008

Well Todd I was there the day you went to heaven. I could not beleve that it was you lying on the ground. You have been on my mind ever day. I miss you so much. I am trying to keep from crying now as i write this. I have a metal cross to put up at 365 & mud creek for you. Some of the guys are going to help me place it. I miss having the low country boils like we had in the past. we have had such good time. With love I am signing off.
