Getting ready for Christmas and have you in my heart and thoughts every day. How I miss getting you all the special things you wanted to make your job just a little easier. You know I hate shopping but I loved shopping for you. Putting up your "Mike tree" tomorrow. Miss you always. Love you. Mom

Detective Phillips, thank you for your unselfish service to your community. Unfortunately sometimes we serve a very selfish and unkind community. I know you did your best to protect your community from ignorance and self destruction. No one deserves to die the way you did, and for those ignorant citizens who believe you should've died a terrible death, they forget, DEATH AWAITS THEM AS WELL!
God bless you and your family Detective Phillips

Every warrior hopes for a good death, he died as he should have, blasted away, pumped full of holes, it was a good death.

I still cannot believe that they took you from us. It simply isn't right. You served so bravely and are an example for us all. Your courage will inspire me for many years to come.
To your family, my deepest condolences. Though time has passed I know that times are still hard. As the daughter of two police officers I cannot even begin to imagine what I would do if either of my parents were taken from me for the selfish reasons of another.
My heart and prayers with you always

What a giving man you were. You served your country in war. You served citizens in peace. So many people miss you. You did so much giving, I know you are being rewarded now. I think sometimes the good die young because they have learned their lessons and are ready to go. It won't make him missed any less. The ones we miss the most are the ones who touched our hearts with love. The love of a wife, the love of a child, the love of a grateful community. Job well done, rest in peace.

Merry Christmas, Mike. Thank you for a beautiful White Christmas. Still thinking of you always. Requiem in pacem. Terri, if you are reading this, please know that there are many, if not all, of us who think about you and the boys often. The way you are able to stay strong through the nightmare is incredible and has made you one of my heroes. I know Mike is so proud of all three of you when he looks down from Heaven's Beat. I hope this message sees you well.

You are always in my thoughts. Thank you for watching over us down here. I'll be at Murphy's tonight with my brothers and sisters in your honor. Requiem in pacem.


August 7, 2010

Mike, went out to Rod's yearly get together at Murphy's last night which, of course, caused us to think about you too. Hasn't been two years yet and sometimes I still expect that round head of yours to pop into my office here at the 2nd to ask me some question that I cannot answer :). You were one of the few who could stump me. Everybody still misses you greatly down here and ask the question, "why?" Well, only God has that answer. We are left to remember your sacrifice as well as your dedication and work ethic. You set the bar high. Now we honor your memory by trying to reach that bar every day. God bless you, and your family.

Uncle Mike,

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, the days before that too.
we think of you in silence.
we often speak your name.
now all we have is memories.
and your picture in a frame.
your memory is our keepsake.
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping
we have you in our hearts.

I looked up in the sky the other day and i noticed how beautiful it was. then i realized it's beatiful because your up there.

Thinking of you,
-Mikayla Elaine Hart
