Reflections for Police Officer William "Nichie" Preslar

Painting will never be the same without you. Nobody can cut in with a roller like you. We all miss you so much and think about you everyday. There was so much left to do and we just did not have enough time. We had so many good times,so much fun and the three of us are so sad without you to referee and take care of us. We love you

about the funny shi! you would say or do. I just want you to know I miss you ALOT and I still am proud to say you were a true friend to me and alot of others who also miss you greatly. You are not forgotten Brother!

ELVIS PRESLEY "HELP ME"

LORD, HELP ME WALK
ANOTHER MILE, JUST ONE MORE MILE;
I'M TIRED OF WALKING ALONE.
LORD HELP ME SMILE
ANOTHER SMILE, JUST ONE MORE SMILE;
I KNOW I JUST CAN'T MAKE IT ON MY OWN.
I NEVER THOUGHT I NEEDED HELP BEFORE;
I THOUGHT THAT I COULD DO THINGS BY MYSELF.
NOW I KNOW I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE.
WITH A HUMBLE HEART, ON BENDED KNEE,
I'M BEGGIN' YOU, PLEASE, HELP ME.
COME DOWN FROM YOUR GOLDEN
THRONE TO ME, TO LOWLY ME;
I NEED TO FEEL THE TOUCH OF YOUR TENDER HAND.
REMOVE THE CHAINS OF DARKNESS
AND LET ME SEE, LORD LET ME SEE;
JUST WHERE I FIT INTO YOUR MASTER PLAN.
I NEVER THOUGHT I NEEDED HELP BEFORE;
NOW I KNOW I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE.
WITH A HUMBLE HEART, ON BENDED KNEE,
I'M BEGGIN' YOU, PLEASE HELP ME

In just a few hours, it will be 4 months now that your gone. Kubler Ross explained the grief process by D.A.B.D.A.(Denial Anger Bargaining Depression & Acceptance)
I have to tell you Nich, I'm skipping around. I'm pretty sure others aren't following that particular order either. Ge & I came by to see you today & it wasn't real. We both said we were waiting to see you or get a call. I haven't ridden or gone to Frankies since you left. If you haven't been listening, I'm Still Bitching so pay attention. Miss You Brother......

Hey there sunshine....Miss that smiling face and that smirk when you would say WHAT? Still missing you but know you are watching from above and you know all thats going on lately..Who would have thought? Ya know it would have been great but things all happen for a reason, right? It would have been a blessing to have it but at least it was a thought and it happened and was a possibilty. Oh well tough luck right? I dont even bother questioning anymore. Well thinking of you every day! God Bless you!

Nich,

Hey what's up? I know you're watching us , so I don't have to tell you how things went on Friday at the Blueclaws. Lisa sent a video of the girls being that they couldn't be there because of the wedding. The girls were great and they did a great job, you would have been so proud and excited to see them on the big screen. The event went well, and funds were made from the sales of merchandise the P.B.A. sold, and will be coming back to your family. Keep watching over all of us from up there. We miss you.

By the way, on Friday, the day of the game, I was making posters at my parent's and I was using spray adhesive. My mom started yelling at me because I was the kitchen table all sticky. She sent me to the garage to get newspaper from the recycling and I picked up a pile from the bunch. The next thing I know, there you are staring up at me. Who'd a thought. After 2 months of you not being here, what are the chances of me picking papers with your obituary in it out of a three month pile. Weird, Huh? But that's how I know you're up there watching over us and that you're ok.

The PBA night at the BlueClaws stadium was great!!! What a wonderful tribute they did for you too bad Lisa & the girls were not able to be there. Abby sang amazing grace for you as your picture was up on the screen. They did a great job and from what Clare tells me you had the girls there quite often, you would be so proud!!! Your always in my families thoughts and prayers as well as Lisa,Julia & Gracie. You are very missed

Nichie,
PBA night at the Blueclaws went wonderfully. Your tribute was so well done & so well deserved. We had a great fundraiser for Lisa, Julia & Gracie. If you had anything to do with the rain stopping... Thank you. Amazing Grace will never be the same again Nich. I can't even bear to hear the bagpipes.... They did a beautiful job though. We miss you very much and think of you all of the time. I know you are watching over us, as we are watching over your family. Someday we will meet again & I will be expecting the smile I know so well. You always had a smile....................
Hope you are proud & that you are smiling now.
Love ya Nich.

Billy,

The days just seem meaningless without you here....You had so much planned and it seems that those plans mean nothing because you are not here to share in them. Miss you more each day and always thinking of you. I would love to be there on Friday to see what they are going to do for you at the game but I have to work. I will have you in my thoughts as always but more so on that day. Remember what Sat is right? I know you wouldnt forget.

Well Nich Friday is almost here and you are gonna be honored. We will all be there thinking of you. I know how much you loved taking the kids to the Blueclaw games or even working them, but this night is all yours. Everyone is continuing to pray for you and take care of the family. This Friday will be another special day where everyone is going to come together and remember how much of a great person you were to your family and friends.
God Bless I love ya man!

Billy,
It hurts me every time I see your picture and remember the day we were so happy we finished. It took a long time there after for us to go beyond the trees. We knew we would still feel the pain in our knees and hear our names being called in a scream. Now I look at your picture and tears and sadness consumes me. Why I'll never know! I loved you respectably...My thoughts and prayers will always be with lisa and the girls!

Nichie,

I still listen for the outside door to slam shut when I take my easy between 8 and 8:30 p.m. I keep waiting for you to walk into the briefing room before you go in to change, and sitting down to watch t.v. with me. Remember, like I always said, "you can change the channel if you want"

RIP brother
