My family recently moved to Florida, actually to Elena Way. When I walk each day, I see the beautiful memorial to Deputy Pill. I pray for her—indeed, a hero!—and her entire, huge network of family and friends. I also feel sad for her, her close family and friends, for our needy society/world:

Let us follow Deputy Pill’s lead and work for humanity, kindness, love, and peace in this world. Let us stamp out cruelty and continue to stand for peace and justice, helping make our world continually safe for democracy and the rule of law. Righteousness and peace must eventually triumph over senseless violence, whether that violence is individual versus individuals or dangerous mob rule over individuals.

The Pill family,
May God grant you peace in knowing that Deputy Barbara Pill lived her life with honor and the highest of ethics in order to meet her calling. Memories will recall all the family holidays and times that she missed to fulfill her obligations as a law enforcement officer. But know that it was torment in her heart not to be both places or have the ability to be all to everyone. The blessing is that she was in God's eyes.

April 1st, 2014. I just watched the jury's decision for the murderer (I WON'T EVEN MENTION THE BASTARD'S NAME) of my friend and co-worker, Deputy Barbara Pill #644. I know we are supposed to forgive, but, I just can't. Barb and I went through the police academy together, she at 40 and me at 38. We didn't let our age get in our way, we were tough as nails. I know we scared some of our male counterparts during the physical aspects of our studies. We laughed about that, so did the guys. Good memories that bring a smile to my face, now. Barb and I studied together, sat two seats apart from each other through the classroom studies at the academy, and encouraged each other through the sometimes tough physical rigors of what we called "boot camp". While I did attend all of her services during that horrible March in 2012, to this day I have still not driven by the site of her untimely and unwarranted death. I am so happy with today's verdict, finally justice for Barb. Perhaps some day I can find it in my heart to forgive, but for now, it's just not there, I can't. The Brevard County Sheriff's Office, lost not just a Deputy Sheriff, we lost a good, compassionate, fair, sweet woman. Barb's family has had a huge part of their lives ripped from their being, I think that's the part I can't forgive. My love to the Pill family always. Barb, rest in peace.

Deputy Pill,

I want you to know how much I appreciate that you chose to be a Peace Officer. You are a great woman and an inspiration to me. I think about you often and treasure the sacrifice you made for us.

I am very happy that your name is engraved near my brother's on the memorial wall at the Police Hall of Fame. I know the two of you are together and watching out for us.

To the family of Deputy Pill: Please accept my heartfelt condolences. You are in my heart and in my thoughts forever. I will never forget our Deputy Barbara Pill.
