As always, and forever, I miss you my friend.

"From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother"

My friend, there’s not a day that passes where I’m not reminded of you. I wish there were words to express the loss. Something eloquent and moving, but sadly all I can think of is…I miss my friend.

I am so sad. An officer kills a suspect, he's the bad guy...it's publicized all over...a suspect kills an officer, it barely makes headlines and people try to forget. I don't forget, nor will I ever. God bless your ultimate sacrifice.

My friend. I have thought of you nearly every day since you were taken from us. I miss your fellowship, particularly your humor. We continue our service, carrying this burden, always keeping in mind the cost. Until we meet again.

Jeff,
I miss you buddy. No matter how bad things seemed to get, you always found a way to crack a joke and make everyone smile. I miss our academy days, and all the fun we had. God Bless you!!

I mark another year gone. Though some form of justice, however unsatisfying it is, has prevailed. I could sum up the feelings of your friends and family in three words: We miss you.

We will keep the watch, as you would have kept it. We hope to make a difference and honor you in the process. Til we meet again my friend.

Another year gone. You are missed. We keep the faith brother. We push on and do the job. We do, the way that you would have done if you were here. We, those that knew you for the warrior-poet you were, remember. We strive to live up to the memory of your service. Until we join you.

I am so sorry for the loss of Sean and Jeff, and most of all the family and friedns loss. May they RIP. I have a special feeling for this horrible accident. My two nephews, and a niece are on the force, and put their lives on the line everyday, for their community. Be safe, and may God watch over all of you.

In loving memory of one of Charlotte's finest that was killed in the line of duty 4 years ago today. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you whether it be when I hear a song or repeat a phrase that you use to say. I miss you terribly my friend. I will see you again one day.

Jeff,
Another year passes and you are still thought of often and fondly. My grief has somewhat tempered by the justice received even though no amount would ever be enough. We still tell stories about serving with you. It was always an honor.

I miss you bud.
