Reflections for Detective Kevin Shumway Orr

Daddy,
Happy Easter!
I love you so so so so much.
Love, Ashlee

Happy Easter Kevin.
This Easter has such a different meaning in my life than past Easters. I am so thankful for Jesus Christ that through his suffering in Gethsemane and during his crucifixion he brought about the means by which we may be raised not only to immortality but also to eternal life.
Kevin I know that you are there for us. We feel your presence often. I love you with all my heart. Continue to watch over and help us when you can.
Love Always and Forever, Holley

Thirty-six years ago today was one of the great days of my life. Two of the sweetest little guys who ever lived were sent to us by a loving Heavenly Father. What a great honor and privilege for us to be your parents. No one ever had two better sons. It's so hard to understand how someone who lived such a good life and is needed so badly here could be taken. I am so thankful for the Spirit bearing witness to me on several occations of your presence. I ran across a poem today that I'd like to send your way. It's entitled The Broken Chain. We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Happy Birthday Kev. Love, Mom

Happy Birthday!!!
I just visited your grave and, as always, it looks beautiful. Holley and the kids take such good care of it. I was thinking of you today and I just got unbearably sad. Today I could be harrassing you about being older than me. I always loved your birthday for that reason. Kevin, I miss you so much. We buried my grandpa a week ago and it feels like I have now lost the two people who always had the most faith in me. I guess I should look at it from a different perspective cuz now the two of you can watch over me much better. I know that you do and that you will continue to do so. My heart aches for your family and the life you gave for what you believed in. You were and are such a beautiful person. You had all the qualities that every person should have. Integrity, compassion, forgiveness, kindness. You were fair, wise, handsome, loving, and caring. I could go on for the rest of my days listing all the wonderful things about you. Ill never forget you and all the wonderful things that you did for me and everybody that you knew. I love you and I miss you more than I could ever say.

IS HEAVEN IN THE YELLOW PAGES?

Daddy went to to Heaven,
but I need him here today,
My tummy hurts and I fell down,
I need him right away.
Operator can you tell me
how to find him in this book?

Is Heaven in the yellow part,
I don't know where to look.
I think my mommy needs him too,
at night I hear her cry.
I hear her call his name sometimes,
but I really don't know why.

Maybe if I call him,
he will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away,
is it across the sea?
He's been gone a long, long time
he needs to come home now!
I reall need to reach him,
but I simply don't know how.
Help me find the number please,
is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big, big words,
I am only seven.
I'm sorry opoerator,
I didn't mean to make you cry,
Is your tummy hurting too,
or is there something in your eye?

If I say my prayers God will know.
Daddy said when we need help,
that's where we should go.
I'll kneel down each and ever night
And try hard not to cry.
Thank you operator,
I'll give god a try.


Daddy,
I wish Heaven was in the yellow pages so we could talk to you when ever we wanted. I love you.

I miss you so much! Life is hard without you here. I miss talking to you, holding you and just being with you. I miss everything about you. Your smile, your voice, your love, your help, your support, your kindness and your love for life, the kids and me. I love you with all my heart and miss you just as much. Your Loving Wife

Detective Orr, I just wanted to thank you for your service to the people of Utah and America, and to let you and your family know that we will never forget you and we will remember your family in our prayers.
Thank you Holley for leaving a reflection on my sons page, this year really has been a hard time, some days are just harder than others, as you well know. I know Kevin and Clint are having a grand time in Heaven. I have blue candles that burn 24/7 for all L.E.O's we will never forget.

My Love,
Jessica is a teenager today. It has been such a hard day for me. I remember back 13 years ago. The surprise she gave us as she came into this world. I was so convinced that we were having a little boy. I remember how happy you were. You were so crazy for your little girl.
It seems like you should have been here to decorate her cake and celebrate with us tonight. Please continue to watch over us. WE MISS YOU SO MUCH! AND love you always!
I love you!!!!!!
Oh, and please continue to stay in Ashlee's dreams.

My Dear Kevin,
I love you with all my heart.
I miss you so much. It is hard to accept that life keeps going on for everyone when I feel like I am dying inside.
I love you so much. But I know that you already know that. As I know how much you love me. You showed me each day and still continue too.
Love Always, Your Wife

Dear Jessica, thank you for the reflection you left on my husband's page. Just wanted to let you know that you as my children had a wonderful daddy, who not only loved you and your siblings but also their community and gave their lives for it and by the way you share you name with my daughter. Please tell your mommy if there is anything I can do for her to call on me at anytime.

God Bless you, your mom and your siblings.

Love, your friend terry

Kevin, Holley, Jessica, Tyler, Kayle, and Ashlee,

It has now been a year since the accident that took you, Kevin, from your beloved, eternal companion Holley and your children. I return to this memorial page often to read and reread what others have scribed. Kevin, Even as an older brother to you, I admired and looked up to you. As I have stated to others, you were a wonderful example to follow. We pray for Holley and your children daily, that they might find comfort, peace, and understanding for their pain and sorrow. We all miss you dearly; yet also at the same time know beyond any doubt that you are in a better place serving the Lord. Having great faith in the Plan of Salvation, given to us from a loving Father in Heaven makes the pain less, realizing that here in mortality it is only a short time until you and your family are reunited. I remember the pain of being hit in the back from a paintball fired from your gun as you playfully had me square in your sights and showed no mercy, later I was overjoyed, when, during the next round I was able to repay the deed with interest. We have had many wonderful family get-togethers. And I look forward to an eternity of them. We all miss you very much. Holley I hope you know that help for you and the kids is only a phone call away from any of us. We love you, and am grateful that even as good as Kevin is, that he married above himself and brought you into our family and made it much better.
Love Larry, (an older brother)

Dearest Kevin, I come to this sight quite often but I haven't been able to leave a message. My heart breaks over and over again as I wonder why in the world such a wonderful person is taken from those he loved so much. You are one of the first thoughts I have when I wake up and the last thought as I go to sleep. I just got an email from your sweet Jessica, she is the most awesome young lady. You were always so proud of all your kids and rightly so. I know you loved Holley with everything you could. Thank you for the example you were to all of us. Anyway in one of the emails Jessica sent it had the three animals tooting. I nearly fell off my chair laughing. It was such a funny email. A couple months before you were taken from this life you sent me an email telling about your family. For some reason I have not been able to find it. If there is any way you can pull some stings I would sure like to read it again and share it with them. Words can not express the sorrow I have felt for losing a brother and a friend, but as much as I pain for myself my heart really goes out to your sweet sweet family. I wish so much that we lived closer and could see each other. They are the best. Kevin I miss your stories so much. I cry just thinking about not hearing your voice right now. I find comfort in knowing that you are with us and watch over us. I firmly believe that you are present on special occaisions. I thank my Heavenly Father for that. I talk of you often to try and help other people be better and make better decisions. I know I choose better because of you. I suppose I had better go before this becomes a book. I want you to know that you are always in my heart. I love you little brother. Lisa

Daddy,
It's hard to think that you have not been with us for a whole year. It seems like a million. The other night I saw a really pretty purple and orange sunset. I know without a second thought that you are in the most beautiful place.

We got your Christmas lights. I turned them on last night.
Ashlee turned them off. She is getting so big and cute. But she will always be your little Tiny. I better go or we will have a river in the house.
I Love you so much.
I miss ya muchly.
