Three years still does not heal the hurt of losing such a great person. Only knew you for a few days and knew that I had met a great person as well as a great officer. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always.

Thinking of you and your family today as we just lost three more brave brothers in Pittsburg this morning at a domestic. It's been a tough time recently with seven brave men leaving us in just two incidents (Oakland and Pittsburg). Thank you for your service and for the sacrifice you made to keep others safe. You are thought of often, even by those who never had the honor to meet you.

Thinking about you today. Being a rookie in 2008, I never had the pleasure of meeting you, but I know you are with us on every Midnight, Day, and Evening shift.

God Bless You. Please keep watching over us... all of us.

Gary was one of the good ones-knew how to laugh, and still get the job done. You are missed my friend.

Officer Bahr from Fredericksburg PD was killed on duty this week and it got me to thinking about you. The first time I met you was the night of May 3rd going into the 4th. Midnight rollcall just broke and the guys were hitting the streets...I was an evening shift officer stuck at Chester station doing a report. I remember finishing up then going to check my mailbox. After that, I turned the corner and ran right smack into you, Gary. I never met you before ... so I said sorry. I remember you smiling back at me as we parted our ways. I then heard the news about 1 1/2 hr later that some lowlife took you away from us. You touched a lot of lives from your longtime brothers in NY and FL to your newly met brothers in VA. God bless you --- we still think about you.

This year is Jen's 20th high school reunion. I've been thinking a lot of the 10th, when we were all together and how much fun we had! I will drink a toast to you both at this one. Thank you for watching over Jen and her parents. Say a prayer for the rest of us left here.

I look at our NYPD graduation photo everyday and think of you. Can't believe 2 years has gone by already. Rest in Peace Bro, you're missed!

It's hard to believe you have been gone for two years. Words can not express how much you are missed. Both you and Jen are forever in my heart. The memory of both of you brings a smile to my face and fills my heart with love and laughter. Thank you for all the great memories. RIP

On this the second anniversary of your untimely death, you are honored. You are a hero and touched many lives. I read here the thoughts and messages that are sent by those who had the honor of knowing you and wish that I too had that honor. Someday, when my time on this earth shall end, I would be honored to shake your hand.

Gary was one of NYPD's nicest guys. He was always a very quiet and respectable man.He brought his priceless military and law enforcement background to the most popular precinct on earth. A few years back, the Midtown South Precinct experienced a devastating loss when Gary was on patrol, the news came in that his wife, along with his mother-in-law and father-in-law, were killed in a car accident in Fl. The men and women of MTS huddled around Gary and helped him at his darkest hour. Some of his closest friends from the 3rd platoon accompanied him for the services in Fl. We were all so pleasantly surprised to see Gary bounce back so quickly from his loss and jump back in a patrol car. Not soon after he resigned from the NYPD to begin a new life in Virginia did we receive the news of his tragic loss that devastated us and reminded us of the great dangers we face every day. Some of our officers made the trip to Washington DC this year for police memorial week to pay special homage to Gary Buro and the pleasant legacy he left behind in the greatest city in the world.
