Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Corporal Robert Thomas Krauss

Well Bob only 2 days left to work at the Bay then off to BHT. It's scarey and then I'm happy in a way. I'll miss all the people after 20 years, I think you know the feeling from when you had to leave, it's like your family. Miss you lots and still can't believe you're gone. It shouldn't of been your time.

It is a time of sorrow, it is a time of grief, and it is a sad time for officers and families during this sudden loss of life. We here at Cops Evangelist Ministries will have you in our prayers daily for the following days of grief. Remember that officers are honored to protect us on our homeland and we thank them for their sacrifice.

To Friends & Family of Cpl. Krauss,

We typically dedicated our DUI special enforcement efforts and events in honor of a fallen hero that succumbed to hands of a drunk driver. On 9/15/06, officers took part in such effort in honor and memory of Cpl. Krauss. I'm happy to report that on that night we made 6 DUI arrests and as result 6 less drunk drivers on the road in Northern Virginia with no chance to hurt anyone.

May your memory live forever Cpl. Krauss.

I know you heard it and seen it. I just want to let everyone know that the motor cycle that was blasting out the rumbling sound was your old bike! I guess the guy you sold it too wanted to let you hear how she sounded one last time. Every time I see a full moon I'm going to think of you, up in heaven riding on the golden streets of heaven..Don't do any burn outs now, you know thats what I love to do! ___________________________O-^O

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Everytime I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the man they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Coporal Krauss, especially to his wife. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Robert, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Robert's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Robert's life was about so much more than the way he died. Robert will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Corporal Krauss, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been three and a half years but we still miss him terribly.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

Hey Bob,
Still can't believe your gone. Lisa and I talk to you daily and things happen and we know you're there listening. It just doesn't seem real. The day of the funeral work got I phone call from the BHT and can you believe it I got a transfer, you know how long I've been trying. We say you had something to do with it. Miss you alot.

Uncle Bob,
Wow can i say? i still cannot believe your gone. I still get tears to my eyes when i think of the fact that i can no longer hear you or see you anymore. When i went to the viewing i kept thinking this isnt real, this isnt you. Why did it have to be you? i was still in shock because you were doing so well. i will never ever forget you. You had the coolest imgainary friend name ever and the coolest truck to match! It still hurts when i think that your gone but its easier when i think about all the memories. I am sorry i didnt get a ride on your bike or that we didnt get to eat crabs one more time.
Love Always

Bob, Met you on the day we had that ill-fated detail for a funeral possession. From that incident we became good friends and I will miss your conversation and love of motorcycles. Was hoping next year when I got my job motor you could give me some pointers even though you would not be riding with me. Now I know you will be riding with me now. Tyrone
