Hello dad,
I know it is 11 years after you have passed and I don't know why I feel the need to write on this. I am so glad every day that I got to know you in my life. I wonder how different things would be if you were still here with us. I wish I had gotten to know you better. I miss you. I know you could have helped me out so much. I wish you could see your grandson and meet my husband. I know you would be so proud of us. He would have so much fun with you. You were so great to us in the short amount of time that we got to spend with you. I am forever grateful and I miss you still as much as I did the second you were gone. I love you dad.

Next month will be three years since you left us. I think of you everyday and remember how hard it was pulling you out of the car after the accident. It scared me to death and broke my heart to see you hurt. I will always remember the times we spent sitting in Murrayville at the park and making fun of everyone. I took my boys to your grave a few weeks ago and laughed when I remembered how much grief we gave each other about our kids. You are truly missed and I will never forget you. I still have your old phone number in my cell phone and it still says 419. No matter what, you will never be forgotten.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

You are still missed daily by so many people. You touched more people than you will ever know. You helped give me strength to get through, and when anyone called for help, you were always the first one through the door. You will never be forgotten.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Deputy White and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Deputy White has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.

To the family and friends of Deputy White, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Deputy White is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Today, you would have been so proud of Gavin. He looked at your picture and said "daddy". I gave him the picture and he laid his little head on it. Gavin looks and acts just like you. If he doesn't want to do, he will turn that little head just like you did. We carried him for his second hair cut yesterday. Daddy let him sit in his lap. We love him so much.

There is never a day that goes by that we don't have tear. When you left us, part of us went with you. Mama and daddy loved you some much.

My thoughts are with your family on this first anniversary of your end of watch. I know this is a rough day for them as are the special holidays. All I can suggest is that they take one day at a time and to keep your memory alive. You will never be forgotten and are a true hero. Keep a special watch over your loved ones and protect them from harm and also those still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line.

Tim, it's been a year ago today that the Sheriff called me at 5:45am and woke me up to tell me that you had been called home. I couldn't believe it! I miss you coming by the office to say hello and sharing a joke or a funny story....or calling me on the phone and saying "hey, do you know who this is?". Every time I see Gavin it's like seeing a little replica of you. Tim, you would be so proud of him. We all gathered together today and dedicated a huge memorial to you in the lobby....I can almost see you blushing now. I just wanted you to know that we still miss you very much!
