Reflections for Detective Kevin Shumway Orr

I see your family on the nets occasionally, and cant help but feel a connection. Give my Dad a hug for me, and If I have the privileged of seeing your family, I will do the same. Take care brother.

Daddy,
So much... Its crazy... I don't even need to tell you any of it, but I'll tell you about today. We went to the prison from criminal law. I just thought of you. It was kinda a hard day. You know, these guys mess their lives up. They are sitting in prison because of stupid choices. 3 of the 5 guys have kids. They haven't been a part of their kids lives because of their selfish actions. I know the kids didn't ask for it and I feel so bad for them. I can't imagine being in the position to go to the prison to see your dad... That's just sad... But daddy, nobody made stupid decisions for us. You were being safe doing your job helping others. A woman on drugs, no the less... I just have had a lot of thoughts about all this today. I just miss you, in short...
Love you Daddy...
Me...

Please be with Jessica when she feels the void of not having you here physically. I see the pain on her face when she thinks or talks about graduation things. She should have had a carefree life but was not given that. So much of her childhood was taken away from her. ( as well as all the kids) She misses you so much. She would give anything to have you here. Nothing replaces a daddy's hug, kiss, teasing, words of advice and help. I know you and know how you must be "bragging" about what a smart, beautiful, amazing and wonderful girl she is. Love you.

I miss you does not even sound right for the way I feel. I miss you more than anything in the world. I miss everything about you. We have a love that not many people will ever get. I wish you were here to be a physical part of our childrens lives. I would give anything to go back to the perfect life we had. Some people are jealous of what we have. It bugs me so bad. What we wouldn't give to go back to having you here to play games with, watch movies with, cook and clean together and all the things that are huge to us and taken for grant by others. I love you sweetheart and will forever and all eternity.

"Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each others face
So much in love your alone in this place
Like there's nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one
She told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything
Life must go on
And I'm not gonna stand in your way

But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it still hard to give her away
I loved her first

How could that beautiful women with you
Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time

But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But its still hard to give her away
I loved her first

From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I'm going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
I loved her first."

Daddy, so there isn't anyone right now, but I've heard this song quite a bit lately. Then as I've been ordering pictures for mom, I'm doing some of me. This song came on. I just thought about how everything has changed so much in the past 5 1/2 years. Another 5 1/2 years I'll probably be married. I might have kids...
Daddy, You'll always be my first love... You still are. Thats why this song is perfect. I miss you Daddy. Especially today...

Daddy,
Just a couple things I guess.
1: Nauvoo and our trip with grandpa. I wish you could have gone with us. It was amazing and so spiritual. I learned so much.
2: Today. I got my senior pictures done. There are so many thoughts, feelings and wants with it. It doesn't seem real that it's my last year of school. Besides college. I wish you could be here for all of it. I've gone 1000+ school days without you. Soon to be 6 first days without you. Daddy I miss the big stuff, but I miss the little everyday things. I just want to be a little girl again. Not have to worry about school and classes, college and all the stress that is, boys, Daddy, that one is self explanitory...
3: Seminary Council. Daddy I love it. Our theme this year is Eph. 6:11-13. It talks about putting on the armor of God. About how we dont battle with blood, Our battles are temptation, sin, trials and stuff like that. I know the members of the church, not just the youth neeed to stand tall and put on the armor of God. I hope I can make a difference this year. Help or ideas would be nice.

I love you daddy.
Saying I miss you, just doesn't quite sum it up... But I do.

Love you...your little girl

Daddy,
Today, has been heck... And then we just found out a UHP Trooper was killed. The same age you were when you died.
Why? Why were you taken? You were the most amazing dad. You taught us respect for people, and respect for anything in general. You taugh us how to act in public, people skills. You taught us the gospel. You taught us by example. You just TAUGHT us... It makes me wonder why you were taken when such low, scumbutts are still here. Someone who doesn't teach his kids anything! Daddy, I'm not perfect. I'll be the first to admit it. I have my faults. But I try to not be immature. I hold my tounge. Daddy, I just really miss you. I wish you were here and none of this would have happened... But I just want to say thank you. For everything you taught me. For loving mom, and treating her right. THATS why you are my hero. It's not because of the way you died. You were my hero before.
I love you so much. And will never ever forget you. No matter what people say I should do.

Sweetheart, I really need you so much. You know all that happened today and I am sure I know exactly what you would say. I love you and am so thankful I have an amazing husband and always will. I will remember you always no matter what. I know how proud you are of our children because they are amazing, caring loving kids no matter what others say. Please be with us....I love you.

Daddy,
Happy Fathers Day(: I love you tons. I am so so thankful to have the best dad. I know lots of people say that, today, but I can say it everyday. I'm thankful for memories I have with you.
And daddy, I just got home from Mexico. I wish...you could have gone and helped me. I know you did, just not in a way I could see you. But after what I experienced, I am so greatful for what I have. I know, I am so blessed. I just wanted to be able to help everyone. Well, I can't. The only one that can, is Jesus and our Heavenly Father. I hope, I'll be a part in that work in a couple years. It made me want to go on a mission, that much more.
Daddy, guess what? I'm a senior... Calculus, yearbook, seminary council and tennis, I'm so scared... But I have you, so then, I'm kinda not. I can do anything and everything with help...
Daddy, I love you. I hope you've had a good fathers day in Heaven. Love you(:

Daddy,
Happy Easter:) I so thankful for the knowledge we have of this day and what it means. I can't wait to be with you and Jesus again.

The other day I made a comment to someone. Just without really thinking about it. The person looked at me and said, "You, are defiantly, your fathers daughter." It made me really happy:)

Love you, miss you
Me...

I know you watch over us daily. But Saturday was proof. Thank you for sending help for your son. I thank Heavenly Father that I still have Tyler with me. You know all that happened and I know you had a hand in it. Thankyou sweetheart. I love you more than words can ever say. You know my heart and all the love I have for you and will forever. I was to upset to write on here until today. But I know you are aware of everything and who is here for your children. They are a gift you have given me. They are such a part of you. Kaylee made your birthday cake and decorated it so cute. She put her heart into it. They all love you so much and miss so much with you not being here physically. But we will get up and try our best each day to make you proud. Love you and Happy Birthday my sweetheart.

"I never wanted you to leave
I wanted you to stay here holdin' me

I miss you, I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear every once in a while
And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow

My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know
I miss you, sha la la la la
I miss you..."
-Miley Cyrus



"'Cause you went away,
How dare you?
I miss you.
They say I'll be okay,
But I'm not going to ever get over you.

It really sinks in, you know,
When I see it in stone

'Cause you went away
How dare you?
I miss you.
They say I'll be okay,
But I'm not going to ever get over you..."
-Miranda Lambert


Happy Birthday again Daddy. I love you lots... Miss you muchly too... I've had both of these songs in my head today. I like the last two lines of the chorus on Miranda Lamberts song. Its true... I'm not ever gonna get over you. I'll always be your little girl. I'm always going to miss you. Whoever comes into my life will just have to accept it. Thanks for everything....:) Stuff like that makes me happy. Even though I don't know what to think and then I cry.
Daddy, I'm getting letters and emails from colleges. I got one from Switzerland about a week ago. I don't want to grow up. College scares me. I don't know where I want to go. Or what I want to do. I'm taking Calculus next year though. And criminal law:) I wish you could help me. Plus I'm all signed up for Senior year. Thats scary too... Lots of stuff that are happing are. I guess its supposed to be.

Well, we are gonna eat your cake now. Happy Birthday:)

Daddy,
I miss you, lots...
Tonight Eric and Manu got married. When I turned to watch her walk down the isle, her mom was with her... It kinda pretty much broke my heart for her, me, Kaylee and Ashlee. When I'm kneeling at the alter, across from the man I want to spend forever with, I'm not going to be able to turn and see you and mom smiling. I'll see mom, and a physically, empty chair...
I miss you like crazy right now. It's just not fair!...

Wednesday when we got my dress mom seen a saying that said something like "Someday I'll find my Prince Charming, but my Daddy will always be my King"

Love you miss you
Me.....

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones on this blessed of all holidays. Stay close to them and let them feel you all around them so they know you are near and watching over them. I'd like to leave the following that was found on a headstone on a grave in Ireland:
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Kev. You were my favorite. I'll never forget the day I was in the office at the High School complaining about how tired I was, and told you to just cuff me to the chair so I couldn't go to class...and you did. All the attendance office gals thought it was so stinking funny that I all of a sudden got in a little bit of a panic since I was going to be late for Ms. Moulton's class. Good thing you unhooked me before the bell rang! You had the biggest heart, and you were so understanding of problems that were going on. I called on your for your help more than once, and I never heard you say you couldn't help. Thank you for being such an amazing officer, and friend. Wish we had more officer's like you in this town now-a-days.
