Reflections for Police Officer Bradley Alan Moody

14 years since I last saw you name on the wall. It never gets easier. Brad, there have been so many things I wish you could have been here for. I’m a few months out from retiring. I’ve accomplished most of the goals I told you I would. You’d be proud. Miss you K27.

Although I never had the honor of knowing Officer Moody, today at the Alabama Chief's of Police conference I had the distinct honor of sitting in a Bel,ow 100 class and able to listen to his wife's reflections of him and his life and realized that his death, while horribly tragic, has meant something to his brothers and sisters in blue. We can, and must learn from these tragedies.

Brother, your sacrifice will be remembered and Mrs. Moody will continue to honor you by teaching your brothers and sisters in blue the importance of the Below 100 program. Her message was the most important one I have heard in many, many years.

May God continue to bless and keep your family.

Rest easy my Brother, we have the watch!

I have the honor of presenting your story to many Law Enforcement Officers as I teach about Below 100. I am honored to be able to share it and I think of my daughters and wife and how important they are every time I give your story and how important it is to get home to them after every shift. May God bless your family! Rest easy brother!

Brad was a good kid and a great man. I knew him when he was just starting out in his career.

Something made me think of Brad today. Not sure what. But it shows he is not forgotten by those who knew him. I know one of Brad's former mentors who still almost breaks up in tears at the mention of his name.

You mattered, Brad, to a lot of people. You were one of the good guys. We miss you.

And, God Bless you, Susan and your kids.

I am seated in the first Below 100 Trainer course to be held in Ohio, and just learned of this story, First, God has blessed this man as He has blessed all of His children. Second, thanks for the courage to share Bradley's story.

This story has touched me....I saw a video for training at my academy during the Below 100 training we received...Susan shared her story in a very reveiling way. Susan you summed it all up in one sentence. "That's not good enough for me". Very true and very right. I am laying in my bed at the academy right now thankful to have heard this one. With your perspective, I will do my part. I dont ever want to leave someone behind with that feeling. Thank you for sharing and for what its worth you have reached one who needed to hear it.

Just watched a video called " is today your day" and afterwards felt the need to find your page and leave a reflection. You have 2 daughters just as I and every chance I get to tell them how much I love them I do it. I'm sorry that you were taken from your family at such a young age and I'm sorry for your little girls had to grow up without you there. Your wife spoke very highly of you in the video and it touched my heart enough to leave you this message. RIP Sir..

Brad, I had the honor of riding the 2012 Police Unity Tour with your wife. I met her my last day in DC and when she spoke about you she lit up the front of the hotel we all were staying at. We spoke about her riding again next year and she said you were up there looking down saying "What are you thinking, you're no athlete!" and was going to switch back to support next year.

RIP Brother. I wish by how Susan talks about you that I had the privilege of knowing you.

Officer Moody,
I grew up in Richmond and know firsthand that it takes a very special person to love patrolling these streets everyday. I was very saddened in 2008 when I learned of your story and the unbearable loss suffered by your family, friends, and the RPD. You responded to a few 9-1-1 calls that my family had to make, and we thank you for your service. You will never be forgotten. Continual prayers go out to Officer Moody's family and friends. Please keep sending signs from Heaven for your loved ones.

I came across your name on this site and wanted to stop at your page and leave a reflection. You have not been forgotten by those that love you and hold your precious memories close to their hearts. Continue to watch over all of your loved ones and close friends. You will never be forgotten as true heroes never die.

Hey Brad

It's been 2 years and as the Holidays approach, I cant help but think of you, Susan and the girls. I know you are in a place where you can watch over us all. We all miss your smaile and crazy sense of humor. God Bless you and your family.

I got that know the one I wanted. Hard to believe its finally come. We talked and talked about it in the past but here it is. My own office and a brand new car! Sad thing is that you aren't able to tell me how proud you are and congratulate me. It's been two years and still I can't believe you are gone. I came across your gang books today and think the low murder rate this year has a bit to do with your dedication to identifying and going after those criminals. Your presence here is missed.
