Nine years. It has been nine years since I got that awful phone call. I took my kids to your cross for the first time yesterday. Carlynn couldn't understand why we weren't at Papa Steve's house. Try explaining that to a four year old. Cameron, who is now seven, immediately put two and two together. He just laid his hand on my arm and said "Don't cry mom, don't be sad. Papa Steve is in heaven with the angels and he's happy now". I almost lost myself right there on the side of the road when he said that to me. Jeremiah is just three months old and already has the biggest personality. He reminds me a lot of you. Dad, you are so very missed each and every day. It breaks my heart that you never got to meet your grandchildren. We all know what a soft spot you had for kids :) I miss you old man. See you soon.

September 20th, 1971, God blessed us with a small child who grew up and changed many lives. With the support of his wife and children he achieved his dream of becoming a LEO. He laid down his life for what he loved and now watches over all of us from heaven above. On June 14th, 2008, God called him home. Please know that you are not forgotten, loved one, nor will you ever be. As long as life and memory last we will remember thee. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, as time goes by we will miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, no one can fill your vacant place.
Forever in Sorrow,
Kim and kids

To the family and friends of Deputy Steve Boehm and the members of the Onslow County Sheriff's Office, and most especially to Steve:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Deputy Boehm was tragically killed.

To Deputy Boehm's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service that Steve gave to his community and the citizens of North Carolina, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on June 14, 2008

To those who loved Deputy Boehm, my heart goes to you all. Know that you're not alone in this journey you walk. I lost my fiance in the line of duty January 2003 and my world was forever changed. It's been a long hard road, and even as time as gone forward, and I've found many reasons and ways to smile, I still have not forgotten the man that he was. Dennis was a beautiful person and he forever has a part of my heart, just as I'm sure Steve will always be a part of yours.

It takes a special person to put their lives on the line everyday to make this world a little safer for us all. I know many of these men never would've thought of themselves as "heroes" but they were in so many ways. It's sad that it they had to lose their lives for some of us to see that. Having said that, thank you Deputy Boehm for helping to make this world a better place. You will not be forgotten here in Winnipeg. I know this isn't a very manly thing to do, but if you happen to run into Dennis up there, please give him a big hug for the kids and I. Dennis was a good man and we miss him more than words can say.

Wishing those who loved you brighter and better days,

I knew him well, and I remember all the times he would joke at us if we were late to class, and how much he made everyone laugh. I am friends with his oldest and my litle sister is friends with one of his youngest. It breaks my heart but of course my prayers go out to all of his family. love you all.
