Rest in Peace brother, and to the family.....though he is absent he is never gone. He will live in your hearts forever. There are times it hard but as time goes by it does get easier, but you will always think of them that has gone on before, but they did being a true hero. I know My family and I are a Law Enforcement family and two years ago I lost my Father to an In the line of duty accident. We miss him dearly and you will miss Mke. To the Department: I know its a difficult time for the city as well, butI also know we push on and there is a vacancy in our lines and our hearts, but always keep the family close and protect them. God bless all of you.

Rest in peace Officer Wilson. As the mother of a slain officer (Brian Aselton, East Hartford CT EOW: 01.23.99), the mother of a living officer and a resident of Deep Creek, this tore my heart out this morning when I heard it on the news.
