Reflections for Patrolman Gregory Dean Stewart

Hey Greg, i was just in english class and we have to write a paper about a time someone has taught you a lesson. The only thing i could think to write about was you, and how much you have influenced my life and made me a better person. You have taught me how to forgive and forget. I hope your having a good time up there and your watching over all of us i know it. Love you and see you soon big guy.

Well Stewy, I saw your Mom, Sister and Son last night. He sure is getting big. Just got our warno for another tour in Iraq, can't really say much about the timeline, due to OPSEC reasons, but I can say I wish I had you on the ground with me now. Got a lot of good young kids straight out of basic, they need some salt. I know you'll be there with us standing at the ready. The way I figure it is if we can get through one more we will all have paid our dues. I can't believe you've been gone this long, sure will miss your humor on patrol. Happy Birthday SGT Stewart, we can talk more downrange. I'll give your the rest of the op order when I get it, stand fast for now. CPT Smart

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREG,

I sure do miss you.... ALOT!! I just wanted to let you know that Charlie is really growing and getting tall. You know he will be in the first grade this year. He looks and acts so much like you did at that age, that at times I forget he's not you. I know you're watching over him, because I can tell by the way he acts. Its like your with him, but he doesn't know you're there. I tell him about you all the time and we're planning a birthday party for you on Sunday before we take home for the summer. I can't believe you're gonna be 35 on Monday.
Well, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday and let you know that I'm missing you, loving you and thinking of you everyday.
Thank you for everything you stood for and everything you did while you were here, and everything that you still do for so many people. Someday I hope they will all understand and appreciate just how much you provide, and how you care for so many others even though you're not with us anymore. You are appreciated more than my words can express. Your loving and caring attitude toward others lives on.

Happy Birthday, Love you Son, Dad

Well Brother, time sure does fly. It's been two years, and you are still here. In our hearts and memories, a party doesn't go by or some type of get together where somebody doesn't say something about you. You are not forgotten and never will be. If that is not a sign of who you are. Then I dont know what is. Laura and Little Lui are doing good, Lui is getting bigger and bigger. Well bro Until we can drink Lone Star again.

Two years and you're still gone.
Two years, where has the time gone?
We're here and you're there, but not for long!
Soon, we will all be together singing a new song!
New life is born, old life has gone
But your memory lives on.
You're the quiet hero who will never die, your memory is what keeps us alive!
Two years and you're still gone.
Two years, where has the time gone?

Hey Smeg,

Can't believe it's been two years since you left this place. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and wonder about what you'd be doing now if God hadn't called you home. We all miss you so much! The void that was created when you left us will never be filled, and that's what makes it so hard to bear. I wish Charlie was able to grow up with you at his side to guide him through his life, but unfortunately he won't - and that saddens me too.

It's obvious by the number of reflections that have been left by others how much you meant to everyone.

I'd like to go see your parents and family again soon. I know it would do me good.

I miss you brother. I know one day I'll see you again!

Until then...

Hey Greg,

Well I am no longer at the PD. I moved over to the Sheriff's Office and worked there for a bit. Now I am up here in Seguin working for the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office. It is a big change from Beeville but well worth it. Hoping to be able to get hold of your Mom and Dad and visit with them since I'm close now. Talk with you later...

Greg, I spoke with Brent Collins today. I haven't spoken with him since '93. He's in Iraq, training the police there. We shared a good laugh about some of the fun we had in England. I miss you every day, brother.

POLICE OFFICER
PHILA PA

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I recently was sent a list of all the students in my senior class. I was shocked to learn about Greg and wanted to leave a quick note to say I always looked up to Greg and admired his courage on the football field and in life. I am so saddened to hear about your loss brother. Just wanted to let you know after almost 16 years I have never forgotten you. I will never forget you. Rest in peace my friend.

Miss you son. Sure wish you were here to join us for Joeys wedding. It just won't be the same without you. We all love and miss you very much. You set a very high standard for the rest of us to follow and I'm proud of you for that, and for everything you did and stood for in your life. You are so missed and so loved.

God Bless You,
Love,

Merry Christmas, you are sorely missed. Please know that you are in my everyday thoughts and not just at this special time. I'm baking an apple pie and it is for you. I'm giving it to my neighbor who is quite elderly and alone. I will share your story with him and he will know what a wonderful person you are and what joy you bring to those who knew you well. RIP, Greg.

Missing you and the way things used to be,
