Final Call

An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.

Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
"Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way."
"Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through."
"Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine, I'm A Cop, Too."

~ via Eric / COPS in Philadelphia

Bruce - look after Chief Mike Maloney - he walks with you now.

Thank you to the citizen who stood up for the officer when most people would have hid or fled. It is people like that marine who make the job worth doing. Thank you to Officer McKay. Your service will never be forgotten.

The moment that you died and all our hearts split in two, one side filled with memories the other died with you.

We often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon our cheeks.

Remembering you is easy, we do it everyday, but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.

We hold you tightly within our hearts and there you will forever remain, life has gone on without you, but it will never be the same.

Bruce,

Its been a while since you were taken but a few moments spent in reflection is all it takes to pull up the feelings of the loss. I will never forget the lesson. In turn I will never forget to live each moment to the fullest as nothing is forever. I hope your daughter, fiance and family are at peace.

Thank you for your sacrifice.

I just happened to come across the video of this horrible incident on the 4 year anniversary. God Speed to you Bruce and may God continue to comfort your fiance.

Sharon, I am glad to see that time has helped heal some of the pain and we are all thankful for the sacrifice Bruce made and for the bravery of the Marine who stepped in to help. I say a prayer for you to ease some of the weight off your shoulders for the sacrifice you have taken on.

I didn't know Cpl. McKay.
I've been out of service for 26 years. But any police officers demise, especially in the line of duty, is a personal hurt.
I'm greatful a proper ending became of it, by a valiant citizen. All the more, a former military man AND his son.
They, like Cpl. McKay, are what stand between life and liberty. I'm certain he will rest in peace.

I hate that this happened. The years have not erased the feelings of that night. I was home, in my kitchen, with my scanner as "white noise" when all of a sudden something tuned me in to the scanner. All of a sudden it wasn't white noise. Something was wrong, and during those initial seconds/minutes (which seemed like hours) , I couldn't figure any of it out, but I knew that something was terribly wrong. It took me about 18 minutes to make the usual 45-50 minute drive to Grafton. The rest, although totally impossible, I just want to never re-live. My co-workers with solemn faces when I entered the office. The call from your father demanding answers and us not able to handle them ~ it was a direct order from the High Sheriff that we not answer anything until appropriate people were informed in the proper manner and somewhat of a 'proper notification' was made. In my mind ~ how does anyone handle that kind of notification, properly?? I not only remember you as "44K" and your nightly notifications that you were "10-02 and on your way home on your motorpickle. 'If you call me within the next 20 minutes or so and I don't answer, it's just because I'm on my 'motor pickle." to the crazy conversation that started with, "You sound like you're on the toilet." "Yes Bruce. I am. Dispatchers poop too!!" and of course, more importantly than work, when our daughters began kindergarten together and the play dates that Courtney came to our house for. When our girls began Kindergarten "way back then" they were best friends from the start. We stood in that crazy Kindergarten classroom ~ both of us with tears in our eyes, noticing instantly that our girls had become good friends, already. For some strange inexplicable reason, we both just knew that things were going to be okay when we left them, unsupervised, to play. There are very few days, even now, that I don't think of you. Sometimes, license plates make be remember (you're early days in Lisbon, your plate was 'FESSUP'). You are thought of fondly by many. I wish I had the chance to meet Sharon. I am certain that we would have shared many chuckles. This is a rough time of year for many of us ~ both personally and professionally. Rest in the utmost peace, Bruce. I know that you are with some of the best and knowing you, insisted on bringing your 'motor~pickle."

It is hard to believe it has been 4 years since that horrible night. It seems like yesterday. You are never far from my thoughts. I do wish that dreadful night never happened and you would be here with your many friends and family who love you very much. In life you impacted so many lives in such a positive way. My you continue to watch over us protecting and service our Lord. May God be with you Corporal McKay.
