Reflections for Detective Troy Lamont Chesley, Sr.

Though I'm sure we're not related, sharing the same name is special. I want to thank you for your service and my prayers will be with your family. I visit this web site for a my friend Deputy Jason Lopez, who was killed in the line of duty on May 4, 2001 in Arizona. Your badge turned into another star when your shift ended here, thanks for lighting up the sky just a little bit more for us.

Hey Troy,

It's only been four months and it seems like forever. We are still trying to cope with the change. Things on this end aren't the best right now but we are maintaining. We just wanted you to know that we continue to hold you close.

Words can't explain how I miss you but my tears can tell a story within itself. I think about you constantly and remember the good and bad times we had. I just can't believe you are gone and the only thing that stops me from calling you is your picture on this page. I just wish your time here was a little bit longer but you are in a better place now. My memories of you will never go away nor will my love. Until we meet again, I will continue to pray for your family and friends.

Rest in peace brother, we'll take it from here.

Hey Troy,

Whats up man? I miss you so much. I keep having a dream that you survived and got out of the hospital. Then I wake up and realize that you are gone. It's like my mother busting through my door all over again yelling, "Tony they killed Troy!!!!". Then sitting on the bed thinking, "NOOOOO it cant be". And I cant go back to sleep as much as I want too. Like the other day someone asked me something and w/o thinking I was like "yo i dont know let me call my boy Troy". I dont know if im blocking out 01/09/07 but it's like your not gone. I lost my best friend growing up, then my grandmother, and plenty of co-workers (miss you mike, kavon, kevin, and Lt.) but with the lost of you and grandma, I know longer fear death because I know you and grandma are waiting on me. One day ill be up there with you and we can ride around and just you man ttyl

Also, Candy says she missing you too. And Moms always talks about you.

I've been thinking about you a lot lately and I miss you so much. I know you watch over me and I hear your voice telling me everything will be okay but I miss seeing you. Your warm smile and your crazy sense of humor. It is still unreal to me that I will never see you again. I miss you and you are loved. As always I continue to pray for your family and friends.

I have read about your loss and feel saddened at your pain.
I only can tell you that Detective Chesley was in service to others and in special calling. I want to comfort his sons, his parents and many friends who know and love him.
I use the present tense because I believe those who are unselfish and caring for others are blessed to pass into another life where there is no pain or sorrow. God is almighty and everlasting in his presence when we claim his promises and respond to Him with honor and service. You know that, too, and Detective Chesley set an example with his call to serve others. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Just stopping pass to say that you are truly missed. I am going to get one of the bracelets that a friend of ours has with your face on it to remind me of you. I was thinking the other day that I don't have anyone to laugh at my unfunny jokes anymore and it made me kind of sad. I know we are not supposed to question GOD but sometimes I find myself asking why you? Not to wish it on someone else but I know HE has a purpose in all this but still it is hard to know that I will never hear your voice again. I think about you all the time and it is strange that I can't pick up the phone to call you but I know your in a better place I guess I am being a little selfish. It doesn't get easier to accept you not being here but you do learn how to cope with it because I know you are with me in spirit. Again, I pray for your family everyday and until we meet again, continue to watch over me.


April 11, 2007

My deepest sympathies to you in your loss. Sometimes life just doesn't make much sense, but I believe with all my heart that God NEVER makes mistakes. Know that you are in my prayers every day, and that your family is being held up by officers and their families across the nation. We WILL get through these days - step by step, one day at a time, with God's strength and peace.

Hi Troy,

Every day I think about you, and every day I still can't believe that you aren't here. I miss talking to you on the phone, and i just miss your craziness. I know that you are in a better place, but life just isn't the same without you. I just wish that I could pick up the phone and hear your voice again. I scroll through the numbers in my phone, and when I come across yours, I just can't bring myself to delete it. I just wish we could have you back. I truly miss you.


April 4, 2007

Hey Troy,

Your presence is truly missed. As the seasons change and we look forward to the cookouts, trips to the beach, and fun with the children it's hard to imagine not having you here for all that. We had a conversation about bringing the kids together more and us all spending more time together. Well know that we are going to try our best to keep that promise to you.

Until next time.

Hey waz up it me again, what’s up Troy, just thought I write to say wow. I had surgery the other day and I know that you were watching over me. Mommy and Marci were there with me. When I came home. I was asleep. I heard you call my name so I answered. and said Ya!!!! but you did not answer back. Its times when I hear your voice and I'll ask Marcia “did you call me, and she'll say no, then I know it was you. Troy you are still in my life, I know that you’re not gone so let’s plat G.I. Joe again. Man you just don't know how I feel right not now. I lost a brother but gained all 5 of the children. All with something different of you. Troy is the part that is calm and cool. Travon and Rayon is the clown that you always showed in your self, Chastity , Boy can she talk on the phone, just like you used to when we were young, remember I wanted to call Marcia and I told you ," What are you having a breathing contest" , and you still did not get off the phone. And little Raven (I think I spelled her name right) she is the quiet part of you. So brother I still have you all of you just in 5 pieces. But brother I still have you. Troy and still no one has broken both of my names such as you have (Du- Roy). And still you wanted to be like me. T- Roy sounds Like Leroy. Think about it.

We didn't know one another on a personal note, but I was always glad to see you man. Everytime we met it was always love, always. Much respect to you and your family. Rest in peace Troy. I will miss your presence.

There is no way I would compromise your great legacy for form or fashion nor to disrespect anyone. You've touched a lot of people in your lifetime and even in passing, you continue to do the same. No matter what title we held or prefix we put in front of a word, we all had the pleasure of having you as a part of our lives. Most importantly, your family was your #1 priority to you and that is the highest honor of all. Nevertheless, my reflections are only to glorify your legacy, allow your family to know what a good man/friend you were and to release the good memories I have of you, in writing. Nothing more, nothing less.My prayers still go out to your family everday and until we meet again, may GOD's love and peace be with your family and loved ones in their time of bereavement.

Hey baby it's Butta again I just wanted to write you a little poem.

I just wanted you to know you still have me walking on air and I am crazy about you. Each day you had filled my heart with so much happiness and I can't believe how lucky I am to had shared my life with you. Your touches, your smiles and the way you can make me laugh are the little joys that still take my breath away. I feel our love is still growing deeper as the days, and years go by. You're my beautiful dream come true. You really mean the world to me and always will.

I look at this page almost everyday and it seems to stay the same. Sometimes I think to myself, maybe if I look at it enough your picture won't be there, but it is. I feel bad in a way because you were the one that helped me through the passing of my father, almost 2 years ago, and I can't help your family out. I think about you all the time, maybe more than I should, and hope that you are watching over us. You are truly loved and missed.


March 23, 2007

Hey T-ROY just stopping by to show you some Love. I just want to let you know how much I miss you. I never in a million years thought you would not be a part of me and Malik life. Even though you are not here by my side I still know that your spirit is with me. Until next time when we will see eachother again I want to let you know that I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART and I will always LOVE YOU no matter what.

Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice to protect our local community. Your courage will not be forgotten.

You are gone but never forgotten. I think about you daily and mostly I miss not being able to talk to you. No more good advice and no more beautiful smiles that tell me everything will be alright. Our friendship was of a different kind and I will always remember you for the good man that you were. I am glad you knew my true feelings for you and I still pray for your family everyday. You were loved by many and respected by even more and for that you will forever and always be in my heart. May the Lord's peace be with everyone who loves you until we meet again.

I read this on another page , but I think it sums everything up the best.

Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.
