David, as the second anniversary of your untimely death has passed, I wanted to let you know that the Washington State chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors cherishes your mother. We realize that were it not for your death, we never would have met her and Terry. They are strong people of faith, and they keep your memory alive.

Rest in peace, David; you are not forgotten.

"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.

My love, happy belated Birthday. You would have been 37 yesterday. I celebrated it for you. Hope you liked the cookie I left for you, and enjoyed the coffee too.
Until next time, my love, thank you for everything you left for us.

Love you forever.

Dear Celia ~

I was leaving a reflection for Trooper Linn and saw your name on his site and realized that the anniversary of your husband's EOW has just passed so I wanted to come and leave a message for you.

I also lost my husband in the line of duty, he was one year older than Dave, and we also have 2 young children. I know how difficult that first year is - every milestone, every anniversary, every holiday.....getting through everything for the first time without your beloved husband and father by your side is truly a challenge. I am sure that this year has been difficult for you and the boys and for what it's worth I wanted you to know that I was thinking about and praying for you and your family.

I hope that as time goes on the pain in your heart becomes softer and more tolerable. I hope that this next year brings you peace, love and new beginnings - I am sure Dave would want that for you and your beautiful children. Please take care.

Thank you, Senior Patrol Agent Webb, for your service and ultimate sacrifice - you will never be forgotten. May God bless you and may you continue to rest in eternal peace, forever safe in the arms of the angels.

On today, the 1st anniversary of your death, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just for service with the USBP, but also for your service with the Army National Guard. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.



November 3, 2007

Happy First Birthday in heaven, my love. A year ago God called your name and asked you to go to Him. But I know it can't be too far from me, because I feel you around me every day. Thank you for being in my dreams when I need to hear your voice again, and feel your hugs. You are not gone from my life, or the kids'. I know you are still protecting us, and I will be forever thankful for what you left for us.
Thank you again, dear, for the boys, the love, the standards you set, the knowledge you gave us, and for protecting us for life.
Love you always, always.

I had the pleasure of meeting your wife and son in Wisconsin last week at cops kids camp. Your wife is a very sweet woman who misses you very much. I can tell you meant the world to her. Your son was very nice and they both miss you a lot. After talking to her for a long time I know in my heart she will do what is right in life to make sure she raises the children as she knows you would. It was a true pleasure to meet both of them and I know you will watch over them always.

Hi, Dear:
Just to say hi. I'm here at your mom's house, just came back from Laura's. I had a good time at camp with the boy. I had a lot of time to remember you and talk about you. And I guess I just wanted to say that I miss you, but feel blessed for the good memories I have of you. I feel happy when I remember you and I think that's just such a blessing. You were taken too soon. But I take comfort in the fact that I don't have to wait for you to tell you something our kids did. You see it as it happens, no matter where we are.
Love always, Celia.

My heart goes out to the family, friends and fellow BP agents in the loss of our brother David Webb. Please accept my condolences and know that the Webb family is in the thoughts and prayers of my family. I will be participating again this year in the Police Unity Tour Ride ( starting May 10th in Portsmouth, VA and ending May 12th at National Police Memorial. I am honored to be riding for David this year. I will wear a blue memorial bracelet, inscribed with David's name and will present it to his family at the candle light service on Saturday May 13th. From reading all of the reflections written for David, I can tell he was a strong family man and dedicated to his mission with the Border Patrol, thank you for your sacrifice and those made daily by your fellow agents.

I came across your name among these many pages of heroes and wanted to say that you have not been forgotten as a true hero, which you are, never dies. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and those still out on patrol. You will forever be in the hearts of those that love you dearly. You will never be forgotten.

David - Even though we never met, you are my brother in green. I am so sorry that you were taken from us so soon and for the loss your family is feeling. I have heard that you were a good man, I wouldn't expect anything less from a PA. You died doing what you believe in and what most of the country doesn't understand. I often wonder why terrible things like this happen to good people. The only answer I can ever come up with is that God must have had other plans for you. Rest in peace.

A P.A.s Prayer

Lord, we never asked that You always set things up
So that we could cut sign into the sun.
Even when we sweated gallons in the heat and
Our teeth chattered in the freezing cold,
We never asked You to stop the elements
Just for us.
In the midst of gasoline rationing and
Budget cuts,
We still went through doors,
We jumped the freights,
We rode the line.
We never expected You to change things
Just for us.
When one of us or an innocent was wounded or killed
We still trusted You;
Even though we didn’t always understand.
We just pray, Lord, that You give us grace enough
To live our lives as Your officers
As we continue the line watch
On this side of the Jordan River~
That when we finally get to the High County,
Beyond the timberline,
A place where smugglers don ‘t exist,
Where the water’s cool,
The coffee’s hot,
And where all of us can shoot one-inch groups;
That You’ll look at the visa
We got at Your Embassy down here and say:
“Welcome home, P.A, this is the Best detail of your life!”

My condolences to the Nevarez family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

David my good friend,
I have taken far too long to salute you. Your passing hit me hard. Just the day before you and I were horsing around in muster, as usual. I was on my days off when I heard of your passing. I couldnt believe it. Not after Nick Greenig so few months earlier.
I miss you pal, we had fun didnt we?
I remember hearing you on the radio, when you spiked yourself on FR1. I missed you my friend. I do hope ALL is well for you. I don't know what else to say.
