I still think of you very often. I followed your journey after you were hurt and when you came to Craig.

Chris, I still think of you often buddy. You were a caring brother and friend. I wish that you were still here. It still brings me to tears when I think of that day. Your family in blue and brown still remember you and we will never forget you. You made the ultimate sacrifice in doing your job. You are sincerely missed. Rest in peace my brother.

Chris, I can't believe it has been over four years since your end of watch. I still think of you often. Your wife is still in my prayers. Miss joking around with you. I was around on your first day of work and last day of work. You were not my coworker but you were by brother. I see reminders every day I work and wish that you were still here.

Today I visited your place on our wall in DC and photographed your name. I miss you, my brother. I continue to pray for Em and your family. Looking forward to meeting again in heaven when my time comes. You continue to be an inspiration.

Dearest Christopher,

It was a strange bit of fate that led me to your story, and your family, 2 years ago this month. Although you were being cared for in CO, a trip west led us to you, Emily, and Hannah. What a blessing for us. We never had a chance to meet you, but you changed our lives. My husband and I, both LE, were moved beyond words after meeting your family. Their love for you was something we can now strive for, as we have been witness to it.

Hannah now serves with us, and is your biggest fan (next to Em). You would be so proud of the Officer she has become. It is certainly a tribute to the man you were. As she spoke about you at your funeral, she told the world that she hoped to make you proud.

Matt and I look forward to celebrating your life, and honoring the sacrafices that you made. Please be with us in DC this year, as you and our brothers and sisters who have joined you in heaven are memorialized and remembered at Police Week. You are a hero, and we will never forget. God Bless you and keep you, Emily and your family.

Kelly and Matt

To the family and friends of Deputy Christopher Dewey and his fellow officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Chris tragically died after fighting so hard for many months to survive his wounds.

To Chris' family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Chris gave to his community and the citizens of Minnesota, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 9, 2010. I am so sorry he was robbed of his life at such a young age.
