Reflections for Detective Vicky Anne Owen Armel

Happy Birthday Vicky
I think about you everyday.


July 24, 2009

We never met but I worked with your brother in-law for 3 years in the fire service.

I have now moved on to the police side of public safety and think about you and your family. I still proudly wear the tribute shirt your fellow officers had made in your memory and make it a point to stop and pray for you and Gabby each year at the Memorial.

Both of you were true WARRIORS, Rest in Peace

Hi Vicky,
You don't know me but I've heard of you. I met Mason at Kids Camp. She is a cute girl. For school I had to write of some ammendment and to see if regular people should be able to handle high powered guns. I said no and I instantly thought of you. So I told your story for my essay. Thank you for your service.

Hey Vicky,
I was thinking about you today and how much you loved Christmas. Wish you were here.Everytime I see a blue Christmas light I think about you.

We sent another one of our brothers home to you, Gabby, Tommy and Karen. Take care of Frank and each other and may God bless and keep you all. Rest in peace.

I thought about you the other day as wellas today. We lost another memeber of our family and it when he initially vanished I thought of you and Gabby. You all are missed so much. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Tyler and the kids each and everyday. Thank you for your heroism. God bless you all.

Det. Armel served proudly and was deeply loved and respected by those who
knew her. It is a tragedy to lose her. We never know when our lives on this
earth will end, but we can make a reservation in Heaven now and assure us a
place when God calls us to Himself. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life
(John 14:6) and He PAID the price for our sins on the Cross so we don't have to pay the penalty for our sins. Yipee! If we accept His payment by faith we can have salvation and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. It is not something we must earn, it is a gift. The most precious one we can ever receive. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith_and this not from yourselves, it is the GIFT of God_not by good deeds, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2: 8,9. For without faith, it is impossible to please God. And our faith must be in God's only Son, Jesus Christ.
You were a credit to the uniform, Det. Armel My heart goes out to your
loved ones left behind and may the Lord comfort them as only He can.
Never forgotten. Can't wait to meet you!! With love from one coast of America
to the other!

Hey Vicky
You have been on my mind so much lately. I thought of you during the time of the anniversary and police week. I didn't make it to DC this year being 9 months pregnant, but I prayed for you and your family. Your birthday came while we were on vacation in South Carolina. I sat at the ocean holding my newborn (very hormonal) and cried when I thought of your own children. I know they will always know what a hero their mom was, but it will be hard when they want you to be there. This August I gave up the career that I loved, that you loved, but knew my family needed me more. I believe that you had a part with that decision. Life is short and we need to love our family as much as possible. From everything I have heard, you loved yours intensely. As I have read, you have not been forgotten, in fact very much remembered. I wish I had the privilege to meet you on earth, but I will be happy to see you in heaven. God Bless, Amy
