I served with Neil at West Point, where we were Military Police. He always had a smile and a joke for everyone. He was a good man, and I have many memories of our time at the Point together. RIP brother...You are missed by all of us.

Neil was one of my good friends at D.A. Justus Elementary and then Hurley High School and also a long time chess partner. He actually did not like the name "Cameron" and just went by Neil. I miss him.

So long ago ! We were just kids, running around up on the hill at Aunt Hazels... and down at Papaws.It's been along time since I've been across Big Rock to see my family ! It's passed time I go !It's funny how, when tragedy strikes a family you fail to remember the time you had but rather regret the time that you don't !! I was floored when I received the news ! I pray that God will keep His hand of protection upon your family. Both natural and " The Thin Blue Line " God Bless !!!

Neil, I miss you more than words can say, its just not the same with you and billy gone. On march 13th a part of us died, a part of me died with you and the office nor I will ever be the same. I often think from time to time that day when I was running late for work and I over slept and I threw my uniform on, and jumped in my car and my hair was all sticking up from where I didn't comb all the hair gel through and you walked over and said your hair is sticking up in the back and you actually fixed my hair. That moment reminds me of what a father would do for their son. I cherish little moments like that because we were all a family and we still are a family and words just can't describe how much I miss you and Billy. Neil, I appreciate everything that you have done for our county and for Eric and Shane that day for giving up your life so that they can go on with life.

To Neil's family, you are in my heart's embrace today. I share your parents anquish in losing a beloved child which surely has to be life's greatest sorrow. As we are fast approaching both their first Christmas without you and your eow anniversary date, they are all in my thoughts and prayers during these difficult days.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the years of distinquished service Neil gave to his community and the citizens of Virginia, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 13 , 2011

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Deputy Justus. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Cameron, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Cameron's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Cameron's life was about so much more than the way he died. Cameron will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Deputy Justus, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eight years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"
