3 years ago, I reflected about changes in our society. Well today, we have Defund the Police movements and a general Blue hate. No one understands the dangerous situations that you 15 years ago and other officers deal with today. They are just Monday Morning QBs with social media. You would not recognize things anymore. But, I know one thing. Our country could use more Bill Jones right now. You are deeply missed.

I will forever be in your debt Billy. You saved my Husband Eds life all those years ago at Ft. Stewart Ga. 1975 -76. You two ended up both working and retiring serving and protecting your communities. You as a police officer and Ed in Connecticut department of Corrections. I was both shocked and saddened to read of your passing. I am so sorry for your family's loss. You made this earth a much better place with you in it. I am so mad to read what caused your dimise demize. Or better yet murder. I have so many memories of our times together. You were a southern Gentleman thru aND thru. I am keeping your family in my prayers. What happened was senseless. God give them strength to go on without you. We will always think of you and smile.
Your friends always

Not A DAY GOES BY that I do not think of you, my big brother, protector and forever my hero. I will also forever remember that farce of a trial and the UNJUST Judicial system we have!! If we could have had a change of venue and the trial held in Cumberland Co. I know justice would have been served and those two sewer rats would be rotting in prison!!! But sadly it's the criminals who have all the rights. It took a few years but I finally have my hate for ALL CONCERNED under control. I work with a man who also works for the Sheriff's Dept. at night and although he did not know you he works with someone who did. So you see, you will NEVER be FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!! I miss you bear hugs :(

Nearly 12 years later, it still hurts. Cops are killed all the time now. The media blows it up on TV for political reasons. Society is really debating it now. Things have changed with dashboard cams, body cams, GPS in cell phones, etc. that would give us the answers that we all seek. However, no one stops to think about the families, co-workers and friends that are left behind. I still cry when no one is looking. I don't think I will ever get to grief your loss in my lifetime. You went too soon. Some images are burned into my memories and haunt me. Things have definitely change since your death. Some good, and some very bad. You would be proud of some and disappointed in others. Most people have moved on with their lives. Many have forgotten you. But rest assured, I remember and a few others do as well. I know that time is the only way this gets better. I know there will be a day when the thoughts of you bring back smile to my face rather than tears. That day, those few critical moments, changed and shaped so many lives forever.

My brother- my hero. You were always there for me. I miss your bear hugs, they said more than words ever could. My grandson Austin has inherited that hug from you. I'll never forget you calling him thumper because his leg quivered like thumpers when you held him. We went to the memorial service of your 10th. It was a good one but every time I attend one it feels like we've just lost you all over again. I heard some great stories about you though and will always cherish them. They gave mom a plaque stating they were naming a portion of I-40 after you and Mike. I still miss you so much it hurts!
