Officer Bryant,
As another summer draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on this years summer camp. While your oldest daughter was missed at Kids Camp this year, I was again blessed to spend time with the other kids and your wife. What an amazing family you have. Your boys are full of life and very kind and handsome young men. Your daughter, what can I say. She strikes something in my heart. She has a smile that lights up the room and a quiet confidence that will take her far. Please continue to watch over us all. God bless.

I spent the last week with your son at COPS camp in Wisconsin as his mentor. This is the second year he was in my cabin. You should be proud he is a nice young man. Your wife is doing a good job with him.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your memory will always be honored and revered for time never diminishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Hey Mr. Ricky,

I wish I would have known about this page a long time ago. I decided to Google your name and thank goodness I found this site. I really appreciate the short year and a half that you were in me and my mother's life, and we think of you ALL of the time. I am now in college, and I sometimes lose focus, but then I think of people in my life that are the epitome of hard work, my father, my mother, and then you. I haven't seen any of the kids since you passed, and I miss them so much. I always wish that one day I will be able to see them again, and see how much they have grown in the past three years...but they probably won't remember me lol. I can not say this about many people, but you made a HUGE mark in my life, and I thank you so much for that. I know that you are next to God, watching over my mom.

Once again thank you for everything you have done, you are truly one of a kind.

Love you.

Dear Officer Bryant,

I had the pleasure of spending the last week with your chilldren at COPS Kids Camp. What an honor it was to spend so much time with your daughters and sons. Your children miss you so much and are so proud of the person that you were. I have no doubt that your daughter will change the world and carries your memories and those of other fallen officers with her daily. It was wonderful to see how the kids watched over one another and truly love each other.

Thank you for your sacrafice. I am honored and inspired by the strength of your family. God Bless you and keep you close to Him and your family. Rest in Peace Sir.

My brother, friend and family. Your presence several years later is still missed. Your tenacity of doing the right things at the right time will never be over shadowed. I know you are with us and I know that your sacrifice for God, Country, and Self will never be overlooked. God watches over you now as you watch over us. I will carry on that spirit as you remembered. Under the guidance of love, hope and promise. Your strength and you admiration was beyond what many could encompass and with that we remain just as you are Semper Fi! Faithful to the cause and faithful to the assignment many chose to ignore. Thank you my brother, I honor you as my friend, and I love you as my family. God guides us. He guided you. Your home is not far away but in the hearts of those who remember. Love and Miss you Ricky. Things are not the same yet better because you remain a part of all which we do.

I can't believe it's almost 3 years since you've been gone. I took me a long time to get over you b/c of all the things we've been through in the short time we've known each other. But I know you're in Heaven now b/c you had a big smile on your face when you laid peacefully in your casket. I will always love you and I know you felt the same. You keep on watching over me b/c I know you'll be proud of what I'm about to do in my life right now..a big change..'till we meet again...

As we take this moment for pause and reflection to all of our brother sand sisters who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, it gives me a deeper sense of reflection for your absence yet your ever present spirit. You are truly missed, irreplaceable and indeed loved. You will always be that hero talked about by many, honored by the faintless and revered by the compassionate.

I feel a special connection, because prior to me working with the NYS Sheriffs Dept i went through the process with Dekalb PD and was in the 62nd academy class for a short time. And though different states and police agencies, we fight the same fight and are connected through our brotherhood. May the lord keep you near, and your family at peace, and know that when it happens to one it happens to all, we all grieve for our fallen commrads near and far...

Although I didn't know Officer Bryant personally, nor do I live in the Atlanta area, I do want you to know that there are people who are sincerely grateful for those who choose to become public servants and risk their lives on a daily basis to keep us safe. I live in a very small town northwest of Augusta, GA and I was so touched by the article about Officers Bryant and Barker that was in the Augusta Chronicle a little over a year ago. I've kept the article on my desk to remind me to pray for their families during this past year. I just felt that I needed to share with his family and co-workier just how much we appreciate the sacrifice you all have made. May God bless you ~
