Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Michael Dewayne Moore

Thinking of you today Michael and your precious mother. God brought your mom and I together to help each other on this journey on earth . We talk about you and Matthew and miss you and love you both so much. We are so thankful every second of every day that God gave you two to us to love forever. We hold on to the hope and promise that we will all be reunited again someday, and see the smiles and feel the hugs again that we long for.

I miss you every single day, but memories of your smile and laughter are here with me as well. 12 years and yet it feels like yesterday. I am so looking forward to reuniting with you again someday. You're still my rock and always will be. I love you Michael in this world and beyond. Always and forever.

Hey buddy, I didn't get to work with you long, but the time I did was great. I remember sitting out on Tellico Parkway on the graveyard shift. You were always funny and upbeat...Thanks for the good memories.

Mike - I have so many stories that could be told. You loved your job and your family. That family extended to us Law Enforcement brothers and sisters. We still think of you often and remember the crazy "Boss" stories. We miss you buddy and the others that have went home to early... Always remembered!

You my Son
Have shown me God
Your kiss upon my cheek
Has made me feel the gentle touch
Of Him who leads us on.....

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 6th anniversary year 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. I hold your family in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace.

Dearest Michael,

It's been a long road, but the look on your momma's face, her smile and tears, when we could report that you would be honored (as you so deserve) on the wall in Washington said everything that one mother's heart needed to say to another mother's heart. I have so come to love your mother, as does everyone that knows her and you. We will be traveling to Washington to share this time with her, and you, and Matt.

With love and gratitude,

Linda Rittenhouse

Dear Michael,

We were so excited to finally hear the news from D.C. that your name had been approved to be placed on the Memorial Wall. Long Overdue! We miss you everday and will never forget you. I speak with Shannon from time to time and check on how he has grown. I know you are watching him from above and smiling as he plays all his sports. We will be there in May in D.C. in your memory. Chief Phillips told me today that Jason Mynatt will be carrying your name in the unity bike tour.

With Love,

Lt. Teresa Smith
