Reflections for Investigator David Michael Petzold

I wish you were here. Sometimes I feel like things are still coming off the rails because you aren’t here anymore. I know you are watching out for all of us but sometimes it’s just tough. . Miss your energy.

15 years tomorrow buddy. I think about you everyday and talk to you often. I miss you terribly, I miss Friday nights, MGDs and Pearl Jam hang sessions.

Sitting at a funeral for another fallen brother.. thinking of him and you and how hard this is for the family and what’s to come. The honor of being here to show my respect far outweighs the pain of it but I still miss you everyday.

I'm alive because of David Michael Petzold. I wish I could be half the man he was. If I could take time off my life to bring him back I would do so. We all miss you so much. Know that you are in our hearts and prayers.We love you.

My heart and troughs are with your wife and children. As and with any day, they said a prayer, that daddy would come home safe. But sadly he was called home to become a bright star looking down on all the men and woman in law enforcement and let them know he is now at peace. Not in pain from the accident, or angry that he has left all that matter so much in his life. He is gone beyond Arion's Belt and some night, when you look out you will see his star brightly shining as a beacon to all those he loved as a reminder he is still he in your memories. His laughter,his smile, the way he walked. But, for now, we need to give his family the grace and love of this horrible loss.

We are getting ready for the CrimeFite program at DeSales and I just can't get you off my mind. It looks like we are going to have a very large class this year! I had the chance to hang with your Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters the other week and I loved seeing them. We had some laughs and yes we had some tears. It is still just sooo hard. Christine is doing some pretty incredible stuff with the Foundation and with her riding. I know how proud you are of her because when she tells me about a ride, she knows you are there helping her get up the hills! I really do miss you Dave, love you lots....

You reached out to Alison last night and it rocked my world. It's been a roller coaster ride since you been gone. I'm beside myself this morning not knowing what to think. I miss you like hell buddy. I love you.

Your mom and dad and I were talking on Saturday about how your motorcycles were always "in the shop". We had a nice laugh and a little cry. Such great memories. Such great friends. We all miss you. Can't believe it's been 9 years.
