Reflections for Police Officer Stanley Cornell Reaves



We are thinking of you today as it was 2 years ago that Stanley was taken from you. Your two children, Ryan and Reagan are truly a blessing to you and your smile is a gift from the Lord.

God Bless you and your family in the days ahead

Hey Stanley it's me Shauna and yes I am still on my "Cell Phone". Oh God I miss you so much the kids are so big and beautiful and Ryan is still my "little man". The memorial that was placed out for you is so beautiful and it is amazing to still see people come out and show so much love. Treva, Reagon & Ryan I love you guys and my family and I are always here if you need us.

It's been 2 years since you were taken from us. It feels like it just happened. Mr. Rose put a really nice monument on 27th St. with your picture on it. You wouldn't believe how many people are still doing nice things for us. We miss you so much. I am so thankful for having the kids because they are so much like you. I wish I could wrap my arms around you again. We love you Big Daddy. Keep looking out for us.

Mrs. Reaves,

Your experience over the last year, I pray has shown individuals to cherish the time we have here on this earth. I admire your courage and your strength as you have endured what might have left others insane. I have prayed for you daily and have hugged you in my thoughts. May the Lord continue to give you only what HE can give ...peace.

I have looked at your page many times over the past year and a half never knowing what to say. I only knew you by face, never by name, but I remember the lump in my throat as I drove to the scene after hearing "officer down" Rest easy knowing justice will be served.


March 20, 2007

Well Baby, it was a long time coming but justice has finally been served. My love for you is still as strong as it was the day we married. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you. The children talk about you daily as well. We love and miss you Big Daddy.

Keep resting in Jesus
Love always,

Widow of Officer Reaves

Justice has been served today. Though it cannot ease the pain we all still feel from your passing, I hope this can bring just a tiny bit of comfort to us all knowing he can not hurt another. We all still miss you and pray you are resting happily with the angels. Please watch over all who have taken the oath to do what you so loved to do. We will never forget you! Rest in peace Officer Reaves...

God be with your loved ones today Officer Reaves, both your immediate family and your police family. People think that time eases this pain...on the contrary, it is now that the numbness starts to wear off and the grieving actually begins. Your legacy lives on in those that know and love you, and even in those of us that don't.

Godspeed Sir
