Reflections for Police Officer Brian Howard Jackson

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.

RIP brave fella.
It's hard not to be angry at his killer & the type that person represents.
As good men like Brian would rather we did not.
However, soft Britain is experiencing more and more of the same, now.
Our Governments need to do more to keep such people out of our lives.
Or at worst, send them to their parents homeland, once they become a threat.

Hey Brian, talked about you on monday during a hockey game. My cousin met Jo-Ann and asked who she was, as i was telling her, the tears started rolling down my eyes. When Jo and I get together we sometimes talk about the fun times we had at the house. The few times I've visited, it's hard to go inside, it just takes me back to a very bittersweet time. bitter when you left, sweet when he would spend time laughing. MISS YA! Every time I watch School of Rock I think of you... Thank You for watching over us and keeping us safe.

Sometimes some song lyrics say it best--

And when one of us is gone
And one of us is left to carry on
Then remembering will have to do
Our memories alone will get us through.....

Seems impossible that it's been 7 years-love you forever sweetie

Hi Honey,
I miss you so much, I think of you every day. I can't believe it's been almost 6 years and 5 months. it seems so long ago yet like yesterday and sometimes it feels like a dream that I am going to wake up from. I keep hoping it will get better but it doesn't, it just changes with time. I will love you forever and I think of you every day. I am so proud and honored to have been your wife and to have had you for 6 years.
Love you forever,
Me xoxo

Happy Birthday sweetpea!!!! There were three babies this year-a girl and 2 boys. I keep thinking how excited and happy their parents must be--little gifts from Heaven that grow up to be big gifts! Saw some of the police officers today-that always makes me feel good. Love you.....forever!

I had the distinct honor of serving as the funeral director for your family during those horrible days in November of 2005. I became so close to JoAnn and your folks and I don't think a wife or a set of parents could have been prouder of a son. Your mom and dad gave me a coin with your badge and number (7980) emblazened on it. I have carried this coin in my pocket everyday for the last 6 years and I think of your sacrifice everytime I reach into my pocket. I have told your story often to my little boys and though they never knew you, you are their hero. Thank you Brian for your willingness to give the last full measure of duty.

Six years-sometimes it seems longer and at other times it seems like this happened just a few hours ago. One thing for sure, you'll always be in my daily thoughts and in my heart forever.

Action Jackson,

You always seem to find a way to make me laugh. Either remembering random comments you've made, your crazy stories, or with things I see that remind me of you. Think of you daily bro.
