Reflections for Corporal Jeremy Caleb McLaren

12 years ago, myself and hundreds of fellow law enforcement officers rendered honors at the service for Jeremy. It was an honor to be a very small part of the brotherhood that could attend his memorial.
Rest easy brother

I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I was just thinking about you today my friend. I can't believe it's been seven years since you were taken from us. You were always such a great person to be around. I wish I had a whole department of guys with your character, integrity and compassion for their fellow man. You're sorely missed my friend.

7 years and I am still just as speechless as I was the day your brother and I left the hospital. I wish so much that you were here to share all these precious memories with us one on one. As you know, there is a new addition to the family, and boy does she have quite the personality! She enjoys more than anything standing in front of the fridge just smiling and pointing at your picture. It's always such a bitter sweet moment because her smile just lights up as did yours and as if she really knows you, yet you aren't able to respond to her like I know you would if you were here! Just know that she does and will always know who you are! During Christmas, your brother and I went to the cemetery and hung large ornaments on the tree that hangs over your plot. It was freezing cold and pitch black as we stood there with your flashlight so that we could see. We just laughed to ourselves and the whole time I was thinking about how you too are probably laughing so hard at us right then. My heart truly hurts that your time was cut so short here on earth. I do know that God deserves the best of the best and that is the only sense I can make of why he chose you so soon. You made quite the impression on the ones you knew and met here on earth! With this said, I just want to remind you and everyone else that your name and all of the memories that you made will not ever be forgotten! You are deeply missed Jeremy!! Loving you always!

Condolences to your family on their loss. Rest in Peace my brother ALL BLUE LIVES MATTER.

A few days ago on Feb 5th, I was standing in the business we all used to call the "office". I was approached by someone who used to work at one of the restaurants that you & I ate at when we were on shift. After speaking with them for a few moments, they mentioned you and offered their condolences as they knew you and I were close friends. All this seemed significant to me as the date of your car crash was Feb 5th. Even though I know that you're in a better place, there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about all the good times we had. You will always be missed & never forgotten brother!

It has been 4 years and I can still see how your life has affected those who love you. Rest easy my blue brother and know that there are still those who miss you and think about you often

Well Jeremy back in March, I visited the wall in Washington D.C. where your name and 11,999 other officers names are inscribed. I saw your name and another of my family members close to each other. I thought as i was there, Every one of these officers are heroes no matter how they died, they gave the ultimate sacrifice, espically you Cpl.McLaren and my cousin Officer Alan Matthew Ragsdale of Hohenwald Police Department.

RIP SHPD 215 Rest in Peace. Your watch has been taken and you have been relieved.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect and you will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today. Thanks to your family for sharing in their reflections their devotion to you.

Rest In Peace.

We participated in a Concerns of Police Survivors Walk in Washington, D.C. on 5/14/11. Our bibs had Jeremy's name on them. After the race, we always research the name on our bibs. It was an honor to walk in Jeremy's memory.

I miss you so much I can hardly stand it. Life will never be the same. I wish so badly I could just fall into your arms and get one of those great big, breathtaking hugs from you right now. I miss my big burly brother. I miss calling you and telling you random funny things and you getting the humor in it even when most others wouldn´t. You always did get me. I miss watching you throw your head back in laughter. I miss watching you throw lil man up in the air and him just giggle. You two really hung the moon for each other.
I just can´t tell you how I miss you. I hurt jere, i hurt so badly from you not being here. It´s been a little of a year and it just seems to hurt worse as time goes on. I notice your absense more and more. I miss being able to call you and laugh with you or cry to you. A big brother just isn´t something that can ever be replaced.
I see all the time on the news ¨another officer killed..¨ and it just affects me in a whole new way. It makes me so angry! I know all too well what the pain and loss therein is and I just can´t stand knowing someone else has to start enduring what we have. To know they are just beginning this journey devestates me. No one should ever have to go through this! I wouldn´t wish this pain on my worst enemy. It is such a big burden to bear. One I will carry for the rest of my life.
I feel so alone without you. I try to give it to the Lord and trust in Him. I KNOW He has a plan and a purpose. I KNOW the promises He makes us and I TRUST those, but as Stephen so perfectly put it, ¨It´s a wound that never heals. It never heals. You just have to take the bandage off once in a while and clean it out to make sure it doesn´t get infected, but it NEVER heals.¨ He couldn´t have said it better Jeremy. We miss our big brother. We miss you more than you could ever have imagined. We notice you aren´t there every day, all day. There´s a void in each of our lives that nothing fills, no matter how hard we try or how much we try to distract ourselves from it. There is no way to not notice in each and every little thing, that YOU are not there.
Christmas was HORRIBLE! Absolutely dreadful. Thanksgiving was as lonely as ever. We didn´t do a single thing this past year. Just seemed like there was nothing to celebrate. Instead of our family gathering for holidays and having family time around the table and food....we gather around a grave site. I think we see more of each other there, than anywhere else. What a sorrow...

It's been a year since you passed, but it seems like it was just yesterday we were laughing & joking. There's not a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind, memories of us hanging out with friends....I miss you brother.

Holy wow!! It has been a year!! We had a small memorial service for you today!! It was nice!! Your Mom and Stephen came down!! During the memorial service we had a moment of silence!! Your Dad came down this afternoon!! They all love the shadow box with your picture, gun, badge, name tag and patch!! It is really nice to see every day when we come to work!! Tonight a lot of us are going to BWW to share our memories of you!! We know you would like the location!! I would give anything if you could be there with us!! Well, I know you will be!! I was telling someone today that it really makes me smile knowing that every officer that ever walks the halls of the Spring Hill Police Department will know who you are!! You will never be forgotten!! The rest of us will grow old and move on and people will forget about us!! But your story will be told to every new recruit and you will always be the hero in the picture!! Hundreds of years from now people will know who you are and that you are a hero!! That makes me feel great!! That song by Toby Keith keeps playing in my head "I'm not crying cause I feel sorry for you, I'm crying for me"!! I miss you Dude!! Until we meet again brother you will be in my thoughts and prayers!!
