My son and I feel sadden by the loss of another officer so close to home. My son said he had see officer Bobby Hornsby in the local Walmart where he works just last week. Dear Lord I pray that you will watch over the Hornsby family and keep them safe in your loving arms and give the strength to go through such a trying time as this. Lord into your hands we commend Officer Bobby Hornsby. Lord I pray for the Killeen Police office and help them to get though this hard time. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth Son of David I pray. Amen.
No greater love has no man than to lay down his life for his fellow man. The peacemakers are blessed for they shall be called sons of God. Thank you Officer Hornsby for your service. Thank you to the Hornsby family for sharing Officer Hornsby with the city of Killeen. God bless you all.

So we were tasked to do classes and I chose police vehicle operation. I have been reading each story about the 358 line of duty deaths in regard to auto accidents for the past 3 hours or so. While on the officer down page I thought to look you up bro. I used to work with Bobby "Silverfox" Hornsby on a nightly basis and gotta say I know I think of you often and your sacrifice. I see your wife and your kids from time to time and am sadened greatly by your early departure from our earth and what a great guy wqas taken from them. I know your looking down on us smiling. Your wife is a rock and has done so much in the community for different causes. Anyway, sorry to ramble. Miss ya bro.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Bobby died.

To Bobby's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Bobby Hornsby gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 14, 2013.

Hey Bobby, just thought I'd chime in and say what's up.. It has been about a month and a half, and folks are still adjusting. Although things will never be the same, we are slowly improving. I'm just reflecting and thinking about the times we talked about Tundra's (before I downsized to my soccer mom's car,) and also think about the bbq that you and the family came to at Medo's house... If I'd had known that would be the last time, Lord knows I would have spoken to you longer...But know this, I am so happy knowing you were and are a man of faith.. You are in a place where there is no suffering, no illness, no hate, no crime... Kim is such an amazing woman and a testament of the power that our Lord possesses. I certainly hope her display of strength can bring the lost to Him. I visited your grave the other day and left a sentimental gift that was given to me by a great man several years ago and said a prayer.. Hope you accept it... It meant a lot to me... We all miss and love you bro...

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. "
