There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I stopped by Cook Walden almost everyday on my way home from work and although I know you're not there. It helped me to get through. I almost for months picked up the phone to call and harrass you and realized you wouldn't be there to answer. We grew as kids almost as sister and brother. We parted ways once you left to VA, married and became a father. As we got older, as adults we made contact again and promised each other that we would never lose touch again. We held on to that promise until God called you home. I feel as though we didn't have enough time to catch up but God makes no mistake. I thank God for allowing you to be that special part of my life and I yours for 41 years. We encouraged each other.

Your little BIG

.....just thinking of you brother, it was good to see you and talk to you the other night in my dreams. I was sitting in 318 and you were at my door, just talking. I dont remember what the conversation was, but you had this aura surrounding you, and I remember waking, feeling your presence and you saying "it will be ok, J-Shiggity...." I miss you bro.....

Reed.....can ya see this look? Tough to do when there's no one to mimic! Guess you've noticed I've been needing one of your parking lot pep talks.....and I'm being stubborn and selfish.
Guess I need to do more listening.....cuz you know there is no shutting us up! Ha!
Today, just want to say Thank You......I'll listen a little better, too! Miss you so much.....and yeah, a hug would sure help!

I miss you so much today. You were always one of the best of us. Work isn't the same knowing your smiling face won't grace these halls... that the streets won't have your friendly protection. We grieve you are gone but we know you're in a better place. We will never forget you.

Hey buddy, All I can say, is that I miss you! You put on my facebook while I was at Ft McCoy, "I miss you, man". Leonard, I missed you then, and now even more. Thank you for being a friend to me, and know that everyday, I think of you, as your picture is in my office her in Afghanistan.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

You were truly a special, inspirational person. The department is grieving and I know you wouldn't want that for us- but we miss you and want you back with us- selfish, I know.
Heaven is a better place for you and I know you are where you belong.
Thank you for your friendship.
