Reflections for Patrolman Jerry Alan Jones

I heard your story today..I attended the Fallen West Virginia Law Enforcement Officers Memorial today with some of my fellow co-workers, and the man who spoke of you Lt. Eric Johnson spoke beautiful, heart felt words about you. Thank you for your sacrifice, although the circumstances were not the best, I still thank you and remember you. I'm thankful I was able to learn your story today.

Hey buddy. Im marrying your little nephew in just 4 weeks. He talks about you alot. You would be so proud of Samantha, she works so hard. Without her, I never would have become a part of your wonderful family. Samantha means the world to me and I am looking out for her everyday. I can see why you choose her, she is the most inspirational person I've ever met. You're gone, but never forgotten.

Missing you every single day!!! There have been several local line of duty deaths since yours. My heart aches for the families as I can imagine their hurt. I'm sure you have greeted the officers that have joined you. Please assure them that their family will be okay over time. It gets easier to deal with but the loss never goes away. I think about you every single day and I miss you like crazy. Please watch over me in this crazy world. Love you Jerr Bear!

HI SWEETIE, HOW WAS CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN?
BETTER THAN HERE I'M SURE.
CHRISTMAS AND ALL HOLIDAYS ARE NOT THE SAME
WITHOUT YOU. WE ENJOY EACH OTHER, BUT THERE IS THAT
KNOWING THAT SOMEONE IS MISSING, AND SOME OF THE
JOY IS TAKEN AWAY. NO GIFTS TO PURCHACE FOR YOU, ALL WE CAN DO IS PLACE FLOWERS ON YOUR GRAVE.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY THAT WE WILL ALL BE
TOGETHER AGAIN.
SOME SADNESS THIS CHRISTMAS, SAMANTHAS MOM IS
ILL AGAIN, HER CANCER IS BACK. WE ARE PRAYING FOR
HER HEALING. ALSO I CAN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT SAMANTHA
MAYBE LOSING HER MOTHER.
WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU EVERY DAY.
MOM

Thought of you at Thanksgiving & Christmas, no different from any other day except your absence is felt more. I missed Thanksgiving dinner with your family due to taking my mom to the hospital, but I was able to spend Christmas Eve with them. I'm so thankful for the reminders of you. Staying connected with them helps me feel like I have another part of you. We all miss you! Your family, friends and I will miss you & think of you always.

I love & hate this time of year. Birthdays & special days between us are harder without you here to share them. Your birthday especially isn't easy for me because it reminds me of how much life you were cheated out of living, experiencing. You were a stand-up, true, genuine, textbook good guy. I've learned the true meaning of life not being fair. No matter how I continued my life, the things I accomplish or ways ill progress, it will never been the same and a part of me will always be lost with you. I hope you know that regardless of how well I seem to be coping or how strong I appear to be, that I still have the wounds, I think about you every single day, & miss you more than words can describe. I wouldn't wish this experience on anyone.
This time 4 yrs ago, you were hiding the engagement ring you had for me. I had absolutely no clue. Even the day before you proposed when you wanted to talk about honeymoon ideas and I told you I didn't want to plan the honeymoon or wedding until we were engaged and you said, " yeah, I really need to go ring shopping so we can start planning." I'll never forget how excites YOU were to show off my engagement ring. You were so happy & proud of the beautiful ring you were able to give me. I would have been happy with anything, but you insisted I have the best you could provide. I'll never forget you telling me just months into our relationship that you were done looking and I was the one. Usually it's the female who's eager to get engaged & get married. I loved how confident you were in everything, even me. I never really allow myself to sit around and reflect on memories like these because I don't want to hurt and feel upset. There are so many happy memories that make me sad to think about because I hate that that's all I have left. Thank you for everything and for choosing me and loving me.
