Reflections for Deputy Sheriff William Joseph Hudnall, Jr.

Hey dad. Me and Josh have been going through a hard time with all that is going on and by doing it alone... But we are gonna do it... So much has changed since you were taken to heaven. But its all for good reason. Josh and I have each other and are stickin together just like you always wanted.. We love you and miss you so much. Valentines day is coming up, I will be by to see you soon. I love you dad. You are deeply missed.

Hey there baby! It has been a little while since I last came to leave you a reflection. I wanted to let you know that yesterday the man who caused your accident and your death was sentenced to 6 years in prison. I know that no amount of time behind bars will ever bring you back. You would be so proud of all three of your boys. They all took the stand and stated how much they missed you and loved you. Josh has grown up to be a very nice young man. You would be so proud of him...I know that I am. Creighton and Chancellor were so brave to walk across the court room in front of the man that killed their daddy and speak to a full court room. They miss you so much. I hope that now that he is doing time in prison that you will be able to actually rest in peace no w that some form of justice has been served. I love and miss you with every beat of my heart!

Love ya, Bye!
Your loving wife

Hi, dad. I wish you were here to show me the way. Should I move and and say forget it. I know what you would do in my situation but since its somebody more then a friend, what should I do? You always say that I need to get rid of all poison in my life. No matter who they are. But Its hard when they are......... family. They babies are doing great. Vincent is a little sick. I know I have notbeen in court. Its not that I dont care or want to support you like some may think but its not that at all. I know you of all people understand.
I am doing great in school. I have all a's and 2 b's. I believe i am in class number 9. Its math, my favorite subject.'
When I am driving around I swear I can feel you sitting be side me making sure I dont crash.. thanks daddy. I love you.

Hey baby! I was thinking about you as I always do and decided to come here and write you. I miss you and love you with everything I have. The boys are doing really well. You would be so proud of them. They are so much like you that I wonder at times if any of my genes were even used to create these two amazing little boys (true gifts of our love) that you have given me. I just love and miss you. I think of you always and forever!
Love Ya~ Bye
Your loving wife and best friend!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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.

I pray for the solace of your family. Rest In Peace

Joe,
For some reason the last few weeks me and Jennifer have been talking about you alot. We talk about all of the dumb things that we have done that you have reemed us for or the things that we do now that we say "Joe (Dad) would soo kick our butts for doing this right now" The 3 year anniversary is coming up soon and that is always the worst day of the year. When we sit there and talk about you sometimes we laugh so hard about things that you would do or say and we start laughing so hard that we get tears in our eyes and it is like you are back here with us. I love you and I miss you and I can't wait to see you again.

Hey baby! I wanted to let you know (which you probably already do) Scott Lovell died today in the canyon not far from where your accident took your life. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. I do not know any other details. Please welcome him up there and take care of him. I am going to try and get in touch with Holly to see if she is receptive to any help. I think that they have children the same ages as ours are. I remember the Halloween we all trick-or-treated with them and Bob and Crystal. Their youngest was about Chancellors age. She is probably 4 now which is the same age Creighton was when you were taken from us so horribly. I am not sure how Bob is handling loosing two people so close to him on the same stretch of highway in less then 2.5 years. Please take Scott under your wing as I will try and take Holly under mine. I love and miss you baby!
Love ya Bye!

I miss you so much baby! I still feel you near me everyday...lately that is not enough... I need your arms around me. I need to know that everything is going to be ok. I need the comfort and grounding that only you were able to give me. The new trial date is now October 5, 2009... right around the corner that marks three years from the last time I hugged you, kissed you , held you, spoke to you, told you I love you and last time I heard you say you love me. I am trying to be as strong as I can for you and especially for our amazing little boys. It is so hard to see your pictures on our walls with you staying the same age and with each school picture I change the boys' pictures around yours. They are aging and you are forever stuck in time age wise. Very hard to watch and to swallow. I taught Chancellor how to ride his bicycle without training wheels 4 days ago...he is already popping wheelies and going on ramps. The boys miss you so much as well. They talk about you daily sometimes with smiles and other times with tears. You are and will always be my angel in heaven and in my heart. I am so blessed that you choose me to spend the rest of your life with. I love you with every breath, every beat of my heart and with every tear from my eyes. I hope to see you in my dreams...open your arms because in them is where I will be!

Forever loving 754!
I love you so much baby~
Love ya Bye~

I just wanted to let you know I love you with every piece of my being. Another holiday is sneaking up on us quickly. Trying to keep my strength up. Thanksgiving this year has been the hardest for me but the most eye opening for Creighton. He rode his dirt bike without training wheels for the first time on Thanksgiving day and he owed is all to you! Such a huge healing and growing break through for our Creighton. You and I both now how huge it is for him to talk to you and thank you all on his own. Christmas will not be the same without you once again baby. I love and miss you more than words could ever express. I do not think there have been words invented yet. Maybe I should make some "Hudnallisms" for the cause! Tomorrow is the first school "daddy and me" event at school...I am going with Creighton to Donuts with daddy tomorrow morning. It means so much to him that I be there in your place. He is very proud of you and proud to have me represent you tomorrow. Well Creighton is home from school so I will say good bye for now. I love you with every beat of my heart!

Your forever loving wife!

Joe,
I feel like I missed out not getting to know you in life. Your wife is just an amazing woman and mother and the way she misses you makes my heartache. Just a few weeks ago we passed the 2 year anniv and it seemed like just yesterday Matt and I took the the kids out the the state memorial for the 1 yr. Your charisma and smile exceed you even while you are gone. I pray that Carrie heart heals with the loving memories of you and that your boys always know what a great man their daddy was. Hopefully I am living such a life as to get to meet you when it is finally my turn to go home. Much love, respect and admiration!

Carrie,
The grace you have had these 2 years are astounding. You have held your head and your postition when many would have crumbled, given in and broken. I love you, and I hope that as the years pass your heart starts to mend.
Forever in my heart, your Friend Heather
