Time passes and the pain fades, but the memory of our love for those who have passed away will never fade.
For the women and men who have fallen in service, God bless you.

Corporal McKay, 13 years ago today you where horrifically murdered. You where just simply doing your job. You where a great police Officer . Continue to rest in heavenly peace

Bruce, I will never forget you. It has been almost 13 years since that tragic day. I remember clear as day, after we talked , we both waved goodbye and said see you later my friend. Later that same day after I saw you, you were gone. I cherished our friendship and the brother and sisterhood we all shared working law-enforcement in the north country of New Hampshire. I am still on the job, and loving every minute of it. It is the memory of you and heroes like you that keep me and my fellow brother and sister law enforcement officers out here every day fighting evil and the savages that take the life of a law enforcement officer like you. "The price of peace and freedom is eternal vigilance" and we will remain as such, just as you did that fateful day. Rest easy my friend, as we will meet again some day and share another smile and a friendly wave.

Wow. I was brought here after watching the two incidents involving Officer McKay and “Niko?”. Niko was obviously a troubled young man and it’s sad that he took out his vengeance and rage against this well respected man. It’s a very sad story and my heart goes out to the McKay family. It saddens me deeply to hear of this and exacerbates my respect for all law enforcement and proves that their job is one that is full of danger. But they do it to protect the population. Corporal McKay truly is a hero and an inspiration to not only me but I’m sure many more people around the globe.

Sir, I didn't know you personally but I wish to express my gratitude and respect to you having served the community and keep the community safe.
You will never be forgotten.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the officers family who suffered unimaginably because of a young, completely out of his mind punk who got what he deserved!

It's hard to believe this would have been your 60th birthday.
Remembering you always with love.

I have seen the video of this incident several times. The earth was rid of a dangerous individual when the civilian took his life. He will be forgotten over the passage of time. Corporal Bruce McKay will be forever remembered.

Re-reading all the reflections Claire wrote to you.
Take care of this special person for Sharon.

Thinking of you, today , on what should have been your 59th birthday, Bruce. Always loved, always missed.

I am learning of your death today, 10 years later. It is heartbreaking, especially as the daughter of a police officer (RIP). What happened to you was always my greatest fear of what may have happened to Dad during his years of service. He survived the streets where many, including you & a dear friend of his, did not. My heart goes out to your family.

Family of LEO (Lieutenant, RIP)

Celebrating you on your birthday with love.
You are so missed.

Dear brother,
you would be proud that Franconia finally got a decent police and fire station built. It's quite an impressive building with all of the proper setups you would expect. Your photo is framed and hung there and the guys who knew you certainly think of you often! BTW, the new chief looks very much like you. Kind of gives me chills actually... I had to do a double take. Miss you more than I can say in words... thanks for sending all of your signs. I love them - they keep me going!
