Hi daddy,

Well its Super Bowl Sunday! I remember one Sunday when you had Jerry Y. and Aaron R. down because out of the three of you we had the biggest T.V.!

I just started my new semester at school. I like all my classes but science. But then science is just boring anyway. I'm getting better on my spelling! (something were neither one good at!) I got 13/15 on the pretest.

Then mutual. We did the dinner date thing. I could just see you over with Jeff laughing about who I ended up with. Kaylee thought it was funny and won't stop teasing me. Kinda like what you would have done.

Well I miss you soooo much. And love you too! I can't wait to see you again when I go there or you come back. Love you
Love,

the last summer i got to spend with my dad we went to Santa Cruz California. me and my dad went deep sea fishing for salmon. i remember that if i had not been so exited i would have froze. finally the boat came and we got on. the man gave us a fishing pole and told us what to do. my dad thought it would be hard for me so he told me just to watch him for a while. as i was watching him i felt sick. i puked 6 times on the boat. it wasn't fun then but I'll always remember that trip with my dad. love Tyler

daddy story
One time my dad took me rabbit hunting. I remember it was the fist timE we had went that winter. My dad had the eyes of an eagle so I rarely saw anything first. I wanted to shoot his 22 so he told me that if I saw a rabbit first I could shoot his gun. Then out of nowhere I saw a rabbit. I was so exited. he shot it but the bad thing was, it was covered in ticks. I got to shoot his gun anyway. I am so glad that I got to spend time with him like that. I love and miss him so much.

Kevin,
I just wanted to leave a little something on here. I think of you every single day. I will never forget the last time (or the first time for that matter) I saw you or the last time I talked to you. I owe you so much. Nobody has ever had the profound effect on my life as you have. I owe my life to you in so many ways. I am clean-BECAUSE OF YOU. I have my kids-BECAUSE OF YOU. I hold life so much more dear-BECAUSE OF YOU. God bless your wonderful wife and children. I pray for them every single night. You did so many wonderful things in the short time you were here. You are not forgotten and NEVER will be.

Stopping in to pay a visit as did your precious wife to my son Michael's page. I know each day is a challenge for her and your children and all those that love and miss you. I would like to leave this little poem which speaks for itself. The author is unknown:

Those who we love and lose
are no longer where they
were before.
They are now wherever we are.

Your loved ones carry your precious memories in their hearts wherever they may be. Continue to watch over all of them. I have a blue light burning brightly in your honor on the outside of my home to honor you and all fallen officers. You have not beenn forgotten.

Kevin,
You must have been so proud of Jessica today as she sang in church with her friends and sang the song to remember you. But then I know that you are proud of our kids everyday. You always were and always will be.
The kids are always thinking of you. They talk about you constantly.
Thank-you for letting Kaylee and Ashlee know that you are watching over them. That is an experience that I will cherish forever.
I love you!

Daddy.
Today me, Becca, Jordyn, Ceidra, Kinzie and Camie sang "I Will Go and Do" in church. It was hard to do But I'm Glad I was able to do it.
I know you were there. I could feel you. I kept looking down to the last row of pews where we would always sit. To where you would sit. Lots of people were crying. I was too. But It made me smile to think people were thinking of you. I love you Daddy. I said today before Erin started playing That time changes but the pain doesn't. It never will. Love you.

Kev:

It's sometimes hard to believe that it has been two years since you were taken. I can still remember that day as though it were yesterday. It was the most tragic day that our department had to go through and yet it was all out of our control.

There are so many things that occurred that day that I hold close to me. So many emotions, tears, fears, and struggles that still carry with me today. One of the most cherished memories I have of that fateful day was when Holley asked Troy and I to assist your father-in-law in giving you a Priesthood Blessing.

As we stood there with our hands upon your head it felt as though the doctors weren't even there working on you. As you know, your father-in-law gave a profound blessing. However, our Heavenly Father had a different plan in mind for you.

You are still missed every day and I want to thank you for being with me those couple of times while patrolling. I miss the talks we had about our problems and figuring out ways to solve them.

Please continue to watch over us and especially your family. We all miss you a lot and will never forget you.

On the 2nd anniversary of Detective Orr's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Detective Orr is not forgotten.

Hi Daddy. I miss you so much. Your all I can think about lately. Last night We went to mutual. They were doing the harms of energy drinks and drugs. I could just see you up there doing it, having so much fun, teaching the youth (and adult.) because you helped so many people with that problem. One of the officers went out for about 45 minutes. When he can back in he said he was helping people get through a problem over the phone. I remember what that was like. No matter what the time you always answered those calls. I just wanted to tell you again, I know you where there last night though. And before that Some of the beehives and Jordyn practiced "I will Go and Do" The song Codi and Brenda Sang at your funral almost two years ago.

Daddy, Tomorrow is two years since the last time I saw you. We were playing cat and mouse and Ashlee fell asleep in your arms. Thats the last memory I have of you personaly. She's still your Tiny. She loves you sooooooo much. I do too. Everybody does.

You changed sooo many lifes by the way you lived your life. I love You and Can't wait to see you again.
Love Jessica

Hi Daddy.
Love you and miss you still sooo much. It just doesn't seem like two years have almost gone by but then it seems like forever. I don't know how. I just wish you were here. Some times I think, what we would be doing if you were here with us. Would we really be doing this or going there.
I wish you were here so I wouldn't have to wonder. We all love you and miss you just as much as the first day you didn't come home. I was just eleven then. I'll be fourteen soon. Love you

Dear Kevin,
Thank-you for the song. I have no idea how it happens but know with all my heart that it is a sign from you. I love you so much. I keep thinking of this time 2 years ago. I have so many happy times to think of. Kaylee's birthday, Halloween, Emmalee's baptism, christmas lights, your church activity and our movie nights. Thanks for all the memories!! I just wish that you were still here so we could make more. I love you so very much. I miss you every minute of everyday.
Love, Holley
