Reflections for Police Officer David Aaron Haynes

9-28-17 David, Another Birthday, you would have been 35, wow. I cherish every birthday we had together. I am so grateful that I got to see the man you had become. A fine son, brother, husband, uncle, friend. But every birthday that passes since you were taken from us, I am reminded of all the potential that you were not able to reach. All the life circumstances that we have missed you during. Oh!, just to hear you call out at my door, "Mom? Hellooooooo?????? I want to hear you tell me a story, complete with gestures and dramatics again. I know someday we will be together again. But in the meantime, I miss you so much. - Love you always, MOM <3

David,I still Miss you every minute of every day. Hoping you are watching over me. You were such a fine young man. I am so sad that I will never hear another story or hear your laughter again in this earthly home. I am so proud of the man you were.

Your Mom

Dear Ms. Haynes,
I remember first meeting you as I hugged you and attempted to extend my sorrow. The only words I could speak were "Thank you for your son and his service. For you see, but for the grace of God go I. Tonight my only son stands at your sons feet." My heart still breaks for you and your family. I pray no other mother will feel your pain.
RIP Officer David Haynes

Mother of a LEO.

Hello I am memorializing this officer in a project for school. If anybody knew him personally and would like to email me and tell me about his character, personality, any stories you have of him, please email me in the next week or so I'd love to memorialize him in the best way possible. Thankyou!

You, My Son, made me so proud. I am glad I got to see the man you grew up to be, and I am heartbroken, that I didn't get to keep you longer. You did what you loved, you protected people and gave them hope. You made people accountable for their actions. A mother could not ask more from her son if he lived to be one hundred. You have many, many, friends and family who love and miss you dearly.

Mother highest possible rank :-)

Haynes, I was just thinking about you. I can't believe it's been almost two years. Even though I'm no longer with the Dept., I still think about you and your family on a daily basis. You were the funniest and most caring person I've ever met. I miss ya buddy. RIP.

Dave you were my best friend here. I loved working with you and the everyday joking and laughter that came with it. I still talk to mama Haynes and your wife Stephanie on a weekly basis. You are so very missed. FYI I finally got transferred to the second district where we were supposed to be everyday partners. RIP buddy.

I'm sure that you know that the POS plead guilty today and will be sentenced very soon. I just hope you will be merciful when the two of you meet again. On second thought, no I don't. "Goonies!"

Dave Haynes was one of the best friends anyone could ever ask for. He gave and gave and gave and never asked for anything in return.

I wasn't as good a friend to him as he was to me and I'll live with that regret for the rest of my life.

He only had one cd in his truck most of the time I knew him. I'll never be able to forget Blues Traveler's "Back in the Day" for as long as I live.

I love you Dave, and I'll keep hating zombies for you until I've breathed my last.

I'm sorry that I was not able to attend the dedication ceremony in your honor today. You know what is going on and why I wasn't there. I will stop by the sign tonight and have a cold one for you.

Once again I must ask you to stand beside Mike today. You are a true inspiration to the ranks. "Goonies."

I served with David in the Marines, and was talking with another former marine last night who told me about this incident. Dave was an amazing Marine who’s good spirit and friendship helped make long days in the Marines and in combat survivable. Dave always had something funny to say or cheered you up. I too have now been serving in law enforcement for almost 3 years. In fact I am about to go on shift here in a few. I will keep Dave and his family in my prayers while on patrol tonight and more than likely tell some Marine Corp stories and things about Dave to my partner. The world is a darker place without Dave and he will be missed.
