Brother Todd, the last time I saw you was back in 1990...our first year at Fairmont State. More specifically, before I moved to SC, we spent the day trout fishing in Elkins with Joe, Frankie and Eric. I remember all of us big boys were crammed in your little car and just before we got to where we planned to fish, you bottomed out and a rock busted your gas tank. We scrambled back into Elkins to an auto parts store, picked up some patch bond and crawled under the car right there in the parking lot and fixed it. I remember all of us were so frustrated, with the mishap having delayed our fishing plans, but as always in every situation, you were calm, making jokes and being your pleasant self - as all of us were wining about missing the “good morning fishing hours.” Well bro, I left for SC shortly thereafter and haven’t slowed down since. Tracy and I got married later that year and have since lived in 9-states now, as my career took me in many directions. I want you to know that I have never forgot you...and I never will! I still laugh when I think about all those late nights we’d all end up at that all-night diner off campus...the Pokydot - back them your favorite restaurant. Brother, keep them straight in heaven and if he’s not an angler, take God fishing...just don’t straddle any big rocks on the dirt road to the stream. I will close by saying that even though we were just boys back then, your positive attitude, genuine smile and kind demeanor made an impact me and I can still see your face, hear your voice and feel your friendship. You were taken from us before I had a chance to come back home and see you and I will truly regret that for the rest of my life. I pray we will cross paths again in the future. Rest In Peace old friend, I will never forget you. God bless you and thank you for your service, your courage and your tremendous honor.

I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

You got him Todd. They convicted the murderer that did this to you. I wish you were here to see it. But know the last man you put behind bars was a dangerous criminal and a murderer. Let us pray he never gets the chance to hurt anyone else.

I met your brother for the first time today. Although, he and i have only done business for a short period of time, when he briefly mentioned this story to me during a phone conversation a few weeks ago I instantly remembered reading about it in the paper last year. After spending a couple hours with your brother today we talked about you and it was clear to me how you've touched his life and many others around you. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and fellow officers who knew and loved Mike.

In two days I will take your Harley and ride it in your honor at the 1st annual "All Day Todd May" memorial poker run. It will mark sixth months since your EOW. In that time this site has notified me 46 more times of your brothers and sisters that have also paid the ultimate sacrifice. I cant even begin to get through all the hearbreaking stories of those that welcomed you at the gates. Blessed are the Peace Makers. I pray you all have paradise now. To more lost just today. May God welcome them home and hold those they left behind close. We miss you all and none will ever be forgotten. Heroes!

Your loving brother

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.

On behalf of your Brothers and Sisters at the Dept. of Homeland Security, and for the people of Hancock and Wetzel Counties, we applaud your service and selflessness on behalf of the people of Monogalia County and the citizens of West Virginia. As a West Virginia native I understand your election in preserving the peace in your slice of "Almost Heaven" and I say, well done Sgt. May. Well done. You will be missed, but know that you leave a legacy of helping define right and wrong for others, just by being you, and that you influenced and changed peoples lives for the better every single day.

I pay tribute to fallen officers and fallen soldiers all the time, being the widow of an Army Vietnam Veteran. Gives my life purpose I guess. Makes me feel worthwhile. I tried to move on since he died 2 1/2 years ago, after 38 years of marriage. He suffered a long time from heart disease and kidney disease. He was 60. I turn 61 on Easter. It gets easier if you don't dwell on it, stay distracted. Anyways, I honor and salute him, he's a hero, and died what he loved doing.
