Terry, I miss you so much and haven't posted many notes in public but you have always been in my heart, everyday. I know that sometimes, I am down here saying to myself, "Wow, I wish Terry could have seen this or seen that!" I know the truth is that you are in Heaven saying the same thing, "Wow, I wish Mom, or Dad or Lacey, Kaylan, Gracie, Millie, Lynne, everyone else I loved on earth could see this!" You are such a man of God and I love you so much and miss you with all of my heart. I love you Terry Elaine Wright

I remember you as a friend and a co worker. But I remember your smile and sense of humor more than anything. Joking with me all the time. It made the job we did so much easier to bear. We had a good time at 1st district. But the good times didn't last and you were taken from us.
I miss you greatly and think about you often. I try not to wonder why anymore (as I know you wouldn't want me to do). Then I just take comfort in remembering the smile and the laugh that always made things better for everyone at the BRPD.
Thank you.

Had the privledge of meeting your Mom and sisters today as Pastor Dino Mayor Holden and Chief Laduff Honored your memory and family. I told your mom that I hope to be at least half the officer u were, she said i was... very encouraging. I asked myself a while back if i had the drive to do what i do knowng theres a chance I may not come home at the end of the day to see my wife and child... and I decided I did have that drive.. And what a great oppurtunity we have to show the love of Christ in our profession.. that we serve and protect..and be a light as u were. RIP

6 years ago today, God called you home. Its hard to believe that it has been that long since I have heard your laugh or saw you smile. You were/ are the most incredible person, & I will forever be thankful for you. You were such a blessing to so many, and I wouldn't trade our time together for anything. I will forever Love, Honor, & Remember you. Youm are greatly missed, & I cannot wait to see you again someday. John 3:16

Det. Melancon, we never met, but your inspiration to me speaks volumes of the man u were, and still are, in the hearts of those that carry you with them.

I learned of you under clear blue skies,
Read your life story with tears in my eyes.
I smiled about your cricket joke,
And sympathized with the hearts you broke.
We never met, but I know well
Who loved you more than words can tell.
Moments come and then they pass,
But memories are of everlast....

I'm happy we 'met'. Thank you for your service and love while here on Earth, and, for touching my life.

It's hard to believe it's been five years. August 10th is always hard but in reality it's really no different from the rest of the days, not a day goes by that I don't think about you. We miss you so much Terry, I miss your laugh, I miss your jokes, and I miss your annoying singing. I miss coming home and finding you in my bed eating cheetoes and watching tv because you didnt want to get your bed dirty! I just miss you, but I know you're okay and I know I will see you again. Keep me safe until then, I love you.

Happy Valentine's Day Terry! I just heard another great song that totally made me think of you. "Cryin for you" by Toby Keith. Its awesome, and my favorite lyrics are, "even though this hurts so bad, I would do it all again". My thoughts exactly. Loving & missing you.
