Hey B, I’m just sitting here thinking about you as I try and celebrate a milestone birthday. I never thought I’d be alone, I never thought you wouldn’t be here with me. I hope you are up there looking down and protecting our blue family. I miss you so much and I love you for forever.

The first thing I thought of was the pain we all suffered almost 11 years ago, and today, 5 times over. I was thinking JoAnn how you feel for Brian and all this brothers and sisters on the force. I became more painful to me looking at the photos on CNN and feeling that the picture from the hospital of someone hugging the officer was my friend and colleague from Friday night duty runs suffering once again of the tragic loss of people dedicated to the protection of others.
God bless all wear the shield to protect and serve the public.

Horrific day for DPD Brian. I'm sure you were there to comfort those souls as they tried to make sense of what just happened. Watch over their families and protect me, please. They are going to need a lot of Angel time. Prayers to your family as they have to re-live the death of an officer. I said that yours was the one and only police funeral I would ever attend. The pouring of love and compassion from our men and women in uniform, and the families that support them, is never more evident than in an officer's funeral. God be with them. P.S. Thanks for "flying" with my Trav....I feel ya. Hugs to JoAnn.

Happy Birthday!! My goodness you'd be 39 today...one moment you were a little boy and then very quickly you became a young man...moms always say their children grow up way too fast...thank heavens we have our memories of all those years in between. Today there was a new baby born at South County and one on his way in Newport...some new happy parents tonight! Love you forever

It's been 10 years, 10 very long, sad years. I miss you so much and I wish you were here. I grieve still for you, your parents and our families and for the family we never got to have. I hear stories every year about how your life and story has saved an officers life, this give me some peace. Knowing someone is going home as a result of our loss makes me smile. I thought 10 would be easier. I spent the afternoon with Russ Martin and the guys remembering you and the out pouring of love from them and other officers/friends was amazing. I hope you know how many people love you, look up to you, miss you every day and can still hear your voice and your laugh. Keep watching over our family in blue and know I love you forever.

I can't believe it's 9 years today that you left us. It seems like yesterday. So many of our friends are remembering and honoring you today, you are truly loved and missed by so many. Time dies not make it any easier or make me miss you any less. I wish you were still here with me and with our families and friends. We have both missed out on what our life together was supposed to be as well as our families. I love you still and always will. I miss you every day. ❤️

I still have a black ribbon with 7980 in my possession. I see it every day. I miss our Monday morning chats at the front desk of the school. I miss your chuckle and your happy countenance. With all the crazy stuff going on, this world misses having a good guy like you on the inside. You are not forgotten my friend.

My son Travis is headed to boot camp. Watch over him, will ya? :) thanks so much....

I'm missing you tonight. I remember standing on our porch watching the fireworks the first year in our new home. So many changes going on right now and so many feelings that I'm not sure what to do with. I make these decisions alone when it should be the two of us. I can only hope that you approve and are watching over as I make them. I love you and will miss you for forever.

Hi Honey,
I totally slacked art didn't post on your birthday or 8th anniversary. It was too much so, I didn't do it. I can't believe it's been 8 years, somedays it seems so long ago and others it's like yesterday. There's so much you've missed and we've missed together. I think of you everyday, it never goes away or gets better, it just changes.
Miss you every day.
Love you.

It's hard to believe that the babies born on the day you died would be 8 now--2nd graders! Sometimes it seems like time just flies by and yet there are times when you feel you'll never get through just one day. Love you forever....

I never knew you and was a sophmore in college when you were killed. But now I find my self patrolling the same streets you did and I feel strangely as if you're right there to cover me if I need it. I heard your story numerous times and can only assume from everyone that knew you well that you were a fantastic guy. You won't be forgotten by me.
