Happy Birthday #2 son.

Another year has gone by without you. It still doesn't seem real.

You left us all so suddenly 4 years ago
Our lives have changed so drastically
No one will ever know
We keep you in our hearts always & forever
Until we see you again, our pain will leave us never

Your birthday once was something that we all looked forward to
It meant another year that we had spent with you
Our tomorrows are all gone now
We cannot look ahead,
We can only look back on our memories instead
Memories can be wonderful if there's more to be
Our memories now remind us that you're not here to see.

Thanks for always being there and watching over us. I am so glad that it is that time of year when we know you will be around for quite some time. We will always be looking for you.

Love and miss you

Yoooooo!!!!!!
Been thinking about you alot lately as I gear up the fund raising efforts and to ride in honor of you again this year during Police Week. Man time flies.... Speaking of gears, I changed up and will ride with Law Enforcement United (dot Org) this year. It is our inaugural ride and we have parternered up with Concerns Of Police Survivors and Officer Down Memorial Page. Still the same purpose of raising awareness and funds but we are trying to raise enough money to fund their C.O.P.S Kids camp..... anyone wishing to help can get a hold of me or Trish for information..... The homepage has a real nice testimonial from Trish and dedication to you so I want to thank the board members for asking her to express what these 2 organizations has meant to her and the boys and to honor you again for the Hero that you are.....
Miss ya Scott!!!!

Well our "baby" turned 16 today!! I can't believe it!! Where has the time gone? I can still remember your eyes as you walked back into the delivery room and he was crowning!! I'm struggling with the fact that you are not here for this day and trying to celebrate the day. But like everything else, I will deal with it! I have to - right?! He is anxious to get his learner's permit and was disappointed when he found out today he needs to get a physical before he can get it. I, on the other hand, can wait!! I know you will watch over him as he enters this chapter of his life!!! Send me strength as I prepare to teach him how to drive and wish me luck! I think I'm going to need it!!! LOL!

Love you and miss you!!

Love forever,

I've been thinking of you since I first heard this song. Some days it really hurts how much I miss you.

“Sorry you missed me
I’ll get back with you as soon as I can
Thank you and god bless”

Got the news on Friday mornin’
But a tear I couldn’t find
You showed me how I’m supposed to live
And now you showed me how to die
I was lost till Sunday mornin’
I woke up to face my fear
While I’m writing you this goodbye song
I found a tear

I’m gonna miss that smile
I’m gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
‘Cause that’s right where you wana be
I’m not crying because I feel so sorry for you
I’m crying for me

I got up and dialed your number
And your voice came on the line
That old familiar message
I heard a thousand times it just said
Sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and god bless
I know you think I’m crazy
But I had to hear your voice again

I’m gonna miss that smile
I’m gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
‘Cause that’s right where you wana be
I’m not crying because I feel so sorry for you
I’m crying for me

So play your upside-down, left handed
Backwards base guitar
And I’ll see you on the other side
Superstar

I’m gonna miss that smile
I’m gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
‘Cause that’s right where you wana be
I’m not crying because I feel so sorry for you
I’m crying for me

I’m still crying
I’m crying for me
I’m still crying

Hey Scott....Congratulations! Somehow and someway your Cowboys beat the Eagles three times this year. I'm giving their credit to you and not them...LOL. Maybe you can get them to the Superbowl :0)

Hey Scotty, I just got done your Cowboys kick the crap out of the Almighty Eagles. I just hope next week they can do it again., try and make sure of that. I don't even mind if they win a 6th super bowl for you. I know my Steelers have 6 but I'm not greedy. As long as the Eagles don't win one.

Hi #2 Son

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas. Another Christmas is going by without you being here, and that really sucks. I guess what really keeps us going is watching Jared and Dusty trying to guess what Santa has left them. I think this year they will have a rough time thinking that they might know what is in their packages. I only wish you could be here. I know you will be watching from up there and getting a good laugh to see us pull one over on them. I hope it doesn't take all day.

They keep saying it will get easier, but I wonder when that will be.

Love and miss you.

Hey Scott

You were in my dream the other night...not really a dream so much as reliving a nightmare. Was at your viewing and I was walking past the casket...it was so real and disheartening. Not sure why all the sudden I dreamed of that out of the blue, then I got to thinking....it was in the early morning hours of Dec 6...the 40th month anniversary of when you were taken and 40 being the last birthday you got to celebrate.

As you know, Ive been going through alot of crap lately and I would like to think it was your way of telling me to hang in there...things could be much worse!

Thanks for watching over all your friends...we miss you!

Happy Thanksgiving #2 son

Sorry I haven't been here in a while.

We did our usual Thanksgiving trip, which we have been doing for the last 4 years. My only regret is and it breaks my heart is that you are not here taking that trip. This was you trip from the beginning, but one scum bag took that away from you and from us.

We were (as you well know) at the new Cowboy's stadium. I want to thank Barry, Carly, Gene, Betty & Dan for always making us welcome and taking us under their wing and making us part of their family and also seeing that we have a wonderful time. It is such a pleasure for me and something I will cherish for the rest of my life to see Josh and Jared having such a wonderful time meeting quite a few of the players and getting their autographs.

We got to tour the new stadium. It is just so amazing. Even if you are not a cowboy's fan, you have to go see it. J.B., our tour guide was really great. One of his questions he asked the group was, "Why did Jerry Jones keep a whole in the roof of the dome? Someone answered, so God to see his angels play. I wanted to reply to that and say there was another reason and that was so Scotty Wertz (a true die hard Cowboy's fan) could also see his cowboy's play. THANK YOU JERRY JONES.

Please be with us as we have to go through another Christmas without you. It just does not get any easier. I just think of all the guessing that we all will miss and the surprises. The only one guessing I guess will be Dusty. Jared seems to have to tell us what he would like, cause heaven forbid it is not easy trying to get things for a teenager when they don't even know what they want.

Love and miss you.
