Reflections for Deputy Sheriff William Joseph Hudnall, Jr.

Hi Joe! I just got off the phone with Daures and we laughed so hard about the OC spray incident. Daures had no idea why his eyes were burning so badly!!! You were such a super great partner and friend. I miss you. Nobody cared as much as you about making things better for others. Thank you for being in my life. Regulators!

Hi uncle Joey, it’s Brittani.

I didn’t really know you that much as I was really young when you died, but honestly I don’t think you’ll know how much I really valued you as an uncle. At the time I couldn’t understand, I don’t really have very many happy memories with you because I was so young but I always remembered finding comfort being near you and your wife, unlike most of our family.

You guys always made me feel like I belonged, even when my own immediate family didn’t.

I’ll love you forever for that. And I miss you. I wish that I could have grown more with you in my life.

Hey there my amazing husband...the boys and I think of you and talk of you daily. We are having to rebuild the home we shared as it was burned down...what is it with our homes and fires? Kelly and Steve had a flood in their kitchen so they get 2 new rooms....then our house burns and we get everything brand new...kelly said you had a hand in it "Keeping up with the Joneses" LOL! Hearing your laugh an seeing your smile helps me as I make changes tot he floor plan and pick out the essentials for the house. Your love is guiding me through it. I miss you with every breath and every beat of my heart. Love you forever and always baby!
Love ya, Bye!
Your very loving wife

Merry Christmas baby. I know that I am a day late on here but you know how hectic it can be with the boys. I want to thank you for your gift Christmas morning. It has been a while and I miss you. It was amazing to feel your presence again. You made my day yesterday so much easier to face because you were with me. I love you! Chancellor is having a rough time again without you. He prays to you every night. Please show him that you are still there for him...I know that would mean more than me telling him that you are here. I love and miss you with every breath I take and with every beat of my heart!

Love ya - Bye
Your loving wife Carrie

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

You were robbed of your life at such a young age. How devastated your family must have been. I hope to meet them at a COPS function someday. Rest In Peace
