Happy Easter my baby! Loving you & missing you so very much! Its hard to believe that 3 years have passed since HPC announced the church in Mozambique being named after you. Countless lives are being saved, and a multitude of wonderful things are happening in a church in Africa that bears your name. That is so amazing!You are always in my heart my love. See you again someday!

Eternal Love,

As the Holidays are approaching, I found myself thinking of you, Mark and Pat. I miss you guys a bunch. I haven't been writing to you as often as I should. I know you don't think I forgot about you though. I was looking on line for a poem that I had found earlier this year. I thought what a beautiful poem and this is probably what you all would say to your loved ones. I wasn't able to find that one, but this one is just as beautiful and still what you would say. I left it on Mark's Page as well. So to all of your loved ones, here it is: I don't know the author though:

" I'm Spending Christmas with Jesus this Year"

I see the countless Christmas trees
around the world below
with tiny lights like heaven stars
reflecting on the snow

The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away that that tear
For I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year

I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
O', the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.

For I have no words to tell you
of the joy their voices bring
for it's beyond description
to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart.
but, through our memories so dear..
We're never far apart.

I can't tell you of the splendor
or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas
with Our Savior.......face-to-face.

I'll ask him to light your spirit
As I tell him of your Love.
Then I'll pray for 'One another'
As you lift your eyes above.

So please let your heart be joyful
and let your spirit sing
for I'm spending Christmas in heaven
and I'm walking with the king.

Hey T,
I want you to know, which I'm sure you already do, that you have an amazing woman who loves you. Lynn is so devoted to you. She amazes me and I truly admire her. Next year I'll be doing the walk with her and I can't wait. I'm sure it will be hard, but well worth the cause. Terry, tell Mark I'm here. Tell him I'm listening. Anyway T, you are a blessed man. What a wonderful family you have. They have been very good to me. I'm proud to call them friends. Keep my man in line!!
Love you my friend,

Hey T-
Just wanted to say I miss you a lot and I am sorry for not being a better friend. We were all so close when we were kids, I have so many great memories. Man, we used to play outside all day and we had so much fun. I was watching Poltergeist the other day with Ragan and I had to laugh. I remember when me and Lacey and Bridget would sit in the living room at your house and you would turn out the lights on us and scare us every time. Where did the time go?? We were so lucky, we had such a great childhood. I remember all the great games you used to make up and we always went along with it, even if it just did not sound quite right. Then we just got a little older and drifted apart. I know we all got busy and stuff but what I wouldn't give to just have picked up the phone at least once. I wish everyday that I could go back and do that. I have never regreted something this much. Unfortunately I can not go back and call you but I do hope and pray that you know how much you mean to me. I will always cherish the memories of all of us even the time we filled in the ditch, never knew how much they meant until it was too late.I miss you T I just hope you know how much you meant to me. Love ya!!!

Dear Terry-
What an amazing family you have! I know you are looking down upon them with such pride. Lynn is such an inspiration-Your Mom and Dad, sisters, brother in law...just all such great people. I will continue to keep them in my prayers-

Just over 3 years have passed since you were taken from your family and your Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement. I still talk to people daily who bring up your name and talk about the Amazing Person you were. Keep looking down on us brother and one day we will all walk the streets of Heaven.

Hey Terry, It's me, Elaine. It's been three years and I miss you so much. It seems like everywhere I look, something reminds me of you. Coworkers, strangers that I run into or friends say, look or do something that either resembles you or your amazing personality and sense of humor. I love you so much and miss you. Pray for us and keep us safe. Aunt Elaine

You are not forgotten Terry. God Bless and please continue to watch over us. Say hey to all of BRPD for us.

Hey my baby, makes 3 years. It has been 3 years since I have physically had you in my life. This day has been extremely hard for me. It just seems to get harder as time goes on without you. I miss you sooo much...everything about you. I would do anything to see, hear, and touch you again. I know that I will oneday...but not until I join you in that better place. Baby, I need you so much right now. I know that I was richly blessed with having you in my life...I will forever be grateful for you. I just wish that we were able to have our lives together here. Everything else just seems dull in comparison. I love you sooo very were and will always be the most incredible person to me. Thank you for all the ways that your love has blessed me. I think about you every single day, and I know that I will continue to do so for the rest of my life. We will have a lot of catching up to do in Paradise.

Eternal Love,

Hey Hunnie,

Well it has been 3 years that you left us. I can't believe it has been that long. It only seems like yesterday that we were in the Academy. I talk to Lynn and Jimmy regularly(as much as our schedules allow). We all miss you. Continue to watch over us and keep your Angel wings around us.

Love Always,

Dear Lynn and Ms. Vicky,
Just wanted to write how much yall and the entire family is on my mind and in my prayers. August is just such a hard month to get through. Yet, it comforts me to know Chris and Terry are up there together looking down over all of us. May God con't to comfort our hearts over the loss of such incrediable people. May Terry and Chris always give us those "little signs" that they are right there with us. All my love, Lisa Metternich

Hey T,
I was thinking of you today so I wanted to leave a little message. I always think of your mother and Lynn. I FINALLY got married....can you believe it. He is a great great man. I read the book your mom wrote and I love it. We keep it next to our bed and I look at it often especially when I'm having challenging moments. You bring me strength. Miss you T!!

Hey T,
I was thinking about you today. Since you left us, Mark has had photos on my end table in the living room. I looked over and saw that precious smile you had and remembered how much Mark loved you and missed you everyday until he joined you, Chris and Pat. You guys better be keeping each other in line. I'll bet the pranks are on in heaven! (hope there's no crickets or smoke bombs up there) Will you give Mark a hug for me? I'll make sure to give Lynn and your mom a hug for you. Take care of my baby. Love,

Hey my baby,

Just wanted to say that I Love You so very much. Its so hard to believe that 3 years ago today, we were just getting back from the cruise and so happy together. You couldn't wait to get back to your house and cook for me, and surprise me with a birthday cake. I miss you so much Terry. Your family...especially Kaylan made today so special for me. I cannot wait to see you again someday.

Eternal Love,
