Found some old photos in a box just yesterday. So many memories of our childhood were brought back of the good times shared in a small country home. Thanks for being a good brother and confidant. Your sacrifice are still making a difference today. Memories will always be here for the survivors of friends and family. Just sitting here at work and you crossed my mind. RIP brother.

Punkin’ I regret not coming to Nannie Sue’s for that family gathering. As much as you asked, I just didn’t feel good that day. And then mama calls.. I can’t tell you the tears I cried. Years and years later I still beat myself up about it!
Thinking about you a lot today❤️
I love you to Heaven and back more times than I can count!

Cousins in every way... I will always cherish the time we spent together while you were dispatching in Albany.. the suppers I cooked for you and you crashing on our couch just for a change! Our Atlanta 500 race trip was absolutely the best!! My heart completely broke when I got the call... I've visited you many times and left just as heartbroken.. I love you and miss you!

I knew BULL at Valdosta State. We were fraternity brothers. We had some crazy times together. He was a good friend, wished we had stayed in touch.
He was a great guy, unique sense of humor.

Thinking of you and missing you. We, Chas and I have had a full year, and we know you are with us every step of the way. Thank you for being in the car with our son the night he wrecked and keeping him here with me. He said you were there and I don't doubt it one bit. That night he wrecked brought back so many memories not just for me but for everyone that loves us. Thank you for every thing, mostly the love you gave your family and a wonderful son.
Love you forever!

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

21 years ago my mom woke me up after my senior prom to tell me of the loss of Bull. Not an April 27th goes by that I don't remember him and pray for you Kim and Chaz. From my heart to God's ears, my prayers are with you both today and I pray they both feel his presence in a way that can only be described as God whispering sweet love notes in their spirits.

Another trooper has joined you and I know you were at the gates waiting on him. You are still missed by many.
love you with all my heart.

Our son wants to be a trooper and wear your badge. I called to talk with someone about him getting on and the person wasn't very nice. His was not working with the state when you died and he didn't know you. He didn't seem to care that your baby boy had lost his best friend. So as soon as I got off the phone these emotions poured out.

Like that Man, like my dad

"My little man" his dad would say
"He looks and acts like me more everyday"

A baby, he was just learning to talk
Holding his dad's hand and learning to walk

Working late one night a call rang out
"Officer needs help, take the quickest route"

With no hesitation that man, his dad answered that call
Blue lights and sirens he gave it his all

And ALL is exactly what his dad sacrificed
Because that night his dad would go live with christ

Never forgotten a hero is he
He gave his life serving you and me

Only a toddler when his dad died
Not knowing what happened or why I cried

My son never got to know that man, his dad
No memories, just pictures is all he had

Eighteen years is where we are now
How can he ask, how can I allow?

He says "wearing his dad's badge is all he has planned
being like that man just like his dad"

I love you

Your wife

BULL, I never had the opportunity to meet you, but with the name like "BULL" I know we would have been the best of friends. I read Jason Ellis' reflection and learned about the motivation that you were to the Troopers at Post 30. I strive to motivate the Troopers of Post 4 Villa Rica to work out and take their strength and conditioning serious. You were right, The more you sweat in the weight room, the less you bleed on the side of the road. Rest in peace my brother.

Trooper Stewart, I recognized the GSP patch and had to read your story. I'm away from home "Georgia" and have been for years. I also noticed your motto for the gym, I'll be thinking of you this evening after shift while at the gym...Rest easy Brother

"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 whos 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.
