Reflections for Police Officer Ricky L. Bryant, Jr.

Officer Bryant Jr. , I have seen you around before...........You never think that someone that you see sometimes or someone close to you could be taken from you so soon ...........But in fact you are closer to me now and your family as well........in spirit and in our hearts.
You , just like Officer Barker , the perfect father, son, brother and Leader.............A true inspiration.......never let any obstacle stop you from reaching your goals........I heard you would take a challenge head on and overcome it, no matter how tough........You, Officer Bryant Jr. are also a hero.....

I will never forget you face and what you and Officer Barker stood for.......When i close my eyes I can still see you protecting and patrolling the streets of Dekalb county.

Officer Ricky Bryant, Jr was only 26 when he was assassinated by thugs. It is a rare thing indeed to find a 26 year old who has what it takes to put on the badge and has the strength to fight. Whether on shift, or at our extra jobs(which is still police work - we are cops 24/7) we, your brothers, will keep fighting to protect our communites.

You will always be remembered.

To the wife and children of Officer Bryant:
I would like to let you know that I was saddened by the tragic passing of this police officer. I don't know the family personally, but you all have been in my thoughts and prayers. I pray for the God of all Comfort to continue to provide you with Strength, Peace and healing during this difficult time.
Everything that I have read about Officer Bryant has shown that he has left a positive legacy.
May God continue to bless you

"We Remember the Officers"
We remember the officers who changed our lives,
The men and woman who protected us day and night,
People who respect for their dedication to the cause,
For when faced with danger, they never even pause.

We remember the officers who always stood true,
Whatever the color of uniform, brown gray or blue,
With pride and integrity they say "To serve and protect",
For the giving of their life, we offer our respect.

We remember the officers who we never really knew,
Persons strong enough to answer the challenge are few,
With heavy hearts we mourn the officers in eternal rest,
There's more to these people than the badge on their chest.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Bryant and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Officer Bryant has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer Bryant, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Officer Bryant is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

For those who pledge to uphold it, Freedom requires a sacrifice the protected will never know.

Ricky was an outstanding person, friend and father. I imagine if he were here he would be humbled but bashful by all of the attention. (smile)... Ricky was a child of God and never said or did anything he would not want said or done to him. The love and respect I had for him was dear and deep. I pray that his final request has been met. I thank God for allowing me to speak with him seconds before this issue and having had the most inspiring conversation that imaginiable. You will always be my Knight in Shining Armour! Happy Birthday I Love You so much Love Bug!You are the greatest!!! See you soon.

My beautiful Nephew, I often asked my sister where did Ricky come from because he was so sweet, kind and polite as a little boy, teen and as a young man. He was a caring and nurturing father he wanted the best possible life for his children that is why he became a Marine and then a police officer. I know his life long dream was to be an FBI agent, that was one he did not get to make but in his short life he tried to be a good husband and I know that he was the best father he could be. I miss you already my sweet nephew but I know you are up there with God with your Bible in your hand and smiling(with that beautiful smile that you had)down on the rest of us and looking out for us. We love you and you will be with us always.

For me to come home and hear on the news that two more officers were slain in a senseless manner devastated me. I am in training to become a police officer myself and worry about that daily. I know someone who you held close to your heart, and you to hers. She is hurting in the worst wasy because she will never be able to tell you how she really felt. She cared and loved for you deeply. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. May you be in a better place resting and watching down on your family and frends. You will be dearly missed.
