Dear, T,

I miss you. Something happened recently that really made me think of you. I drove to BRPD to look at the wall with your name on it & I snapped a picture. I kept thinking of that video y’all made at Maw Maw’s house, when you said you were the host of today’s program & your name was Marty Terry. You were acting like the host of those animal planet shows, where they introduce and describe each animal for the viewers. You brought Kaylen on the video, and you were saying, “I’d like you at home to notice the hair under Kaylen’s arms...”. I forgot the rest, but I couldn’t stop laughing because I remembered when we filmed it! Terry, you were one of a kind. We love and miss you, and can’t wait to see you again. I’d like you to know that because of that trip to BRPD recently, I’ve decided to put on the blue uniform and follow in yall’s footsteps. I’ll try to do it justice and I’ll wear it with honor. Love you.

I didn't know you. I actually just learned of your loss today from your beloved fiance, Lynn. We are remembering your EOW and supporting Lynn today, 14 years later, in a support group she is in for the spouses and fiancee's of our Fallen Officer's. You would be so proud of her. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your service. I am so sorry for the loss that has struck your family, both blood and blue. I'm sorry for the loss of your community of a fine Detective and Officer as well as your PD but mostly to that of your family and the family you should have been able to have with Lynn.

My husband has 30 years on just about and will be retiring soon. For the thanks that I got to have my husband for the last 25 years and that so many Police Wives, Husbands and Police Fiancee's do not get that time, I have started a nonprofit called Blue_Wives_Matter to offer support to those that have lost their LEOs, regardless of COD. So not all of our losses are on this wall but the hurt is just the same so we all grieve together. Thank you again for your service and sacrifice Detective Terry Melancon, you will never be forgotten.

Terry

Had the opportunity to meet your mother this week during a business transaction. Her outlook was positive and helpful which is certainly the way that you conducted your life. Today being Memorial Day I felt that I should honor you with this note. May your memory remain in the heart's and mind's of all citizen's that you had sworn to protect.
