To Treva
I can only imagine the pain you are going through. I hope you will take comfort in knowing that Stanley’s love for you will live on forever. You and your children will be in my prayers and I promise that Stanley’s memory and sacrifice will not be forgotten.

To Reagan & Ryan
I hope some day you will understand how special your father was. He loved you and you helped give his life meaning. Know that your father died protecting freedoms most people take for granted. As you grow up, never question your father’s love for you. He died doing his very best to make the world you will grow up in a better, safer place.

To my brothers and sisters of the Norfolk Police Department
My heart goes out to all of you. Go forward with the knowledge that we are filling in the gap of the Thin Blue Line left by Stanley’s death. I know you will carry on the mission because, like our fallen hero, you know how important our role is in keeping our community safe.

Reaves, I had the honor and the privilege, along with J. Smith to be part of the procession that went down to your house to pick up Treva, Reagan, Ryan, and the rest of your family and friends. You would have been thrilled about this show of gratitude for your service. Bikes were there from every department in Hampton Roads and beyopnd. Va Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and even Henrico County. The Henrico County boys brought their shiney BMW's which I'm sure you would have loved to have seen. It was awesome Bro. 50 plus motorcycles rumbling down the interstate. Blocking off traffic and making a clear way for you. At that moment in time nothing else mattered. State Police seargeant said block everything no matter how long it takes. He said this is our show, your show brother and that nothing was going to ruin it. Rest in peace hero, we have it from here.

My brothers only child was killed in the line of duty, Lonny lost his life to two thugs who had just robbed a liquor store. While checking a tag number of a truck that he pulled over, he called out shots fired, which was his last radio transmission. We miss him as we will miss you Officer Reaves.

I CHECK THE ODMP EVERY DAY. I HAVE COME TO THIS HERO EVERDAY, TO CHECK ON THE STATUS OF THE HUNT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS COWARDLY ACT. I FIND THAT HE RAN LIKE A COWARD TO WHITE PLAINS, NY. THE GOOD NEWS IS HE IS IN CUSTODY. WHAT REALLY GETS ME ANGRY IS HE HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH "USE OF A FIREARM BY A CONVICTED FELON". WHEN WILL THE DAY COME WHEN THE OLD SAYING IS PUT TO USE. "LOCK 'EM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY". IF THIS FELON HAD NOT BEEN RELEASED, THIS HERO WOULD HAVE GONE HOME TO HIS BEAUTIFUL FAMILY. NOW HE HAS BEEN MURDERED, AND THIS BUM WILL LISTEN TO HIS RIGHTS.
I HOPE HE NEVER SEES THE LIGHT OF DAY AGAIN.
OFFICER REAVES, CONTINUE TO REST IN PEACE.

Officer Reaves, I did not know you, but I attended your funeral today, and now I will always remember you. I was joined by thousands of other officers, connected by a common bond of unity in upholding the law and protecting the citizens of our communities. I know you saw all of us today, and all those police cars and lights. What a sight to behold! I really enjoyed looking at the giant American flag that the Norfolk Fire Department errected atop two huge ladder trucks. It looked so wonderful waving in the wind. It was all for you! I want to personally thank you for your service to your country in the Army and your community, both in Norfolk and Baltimore. Please keep an eye on us as we continue the watch down here. You'll now be able to start the greatest patrol of all, on Heaven's Streets under God's command. I will continue to pray for your family, friends, and fellow officers. I pray that God will provide them a warm peace and closure as you move on to your reward. Thank you, brave brother.

I was so glad when I heard that Officer Reaves' killer had been taken into custody. Being a police officer, we never know what situation(s) we will walk into during our shift. Unfortunately, Officer Reaves walked up to a thug with a gun unexpectedly. I extend to the family to always remember this fallen officer's bravery and courage. Officer Reaves your shift is over now, and we will take it from here. Rest in peace, brother...
