Five years, I can hardly believe it... Doesn’t seem like it was that long ago, but in the same it feels like a lifetime ago. I always think about you. I can recall the exact day we met laughing and joking, and unfortunately that terrible night is also ingrained in my mind as well. You are missed, remembered, and cherished.

Hey man. I was going through one of my closets tonight and found that mini-helmet you gave me. Brought me right back to the day you gave it to me. “28 for the day, baby boy”

My fourth Christmas without you. I have a tree, but there is nothing under it except the love I have for you. Your Sister is here. She has brought me joy and you know what? She is amazingly a lot like you Alex. I miss you with all my being and I love you more than that. I love you My Beautiful Boy, I always will. Love Mommo

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". 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.

A New Bern hero. Rest in peace Patrolman Thalmann. Too young with a career headed for more accomplishment. God needed your young heart and soul to humbly guide our angelic heroes and heroines.

I was honored to ride with Officer Thalmann’s wrist band during the Conroe, TX Heroes Ride on Saturday 10/14/2017. During the 75-mile ride, I thought about him and prayed for peace for his family and friends. I’ll continue to pray for them and all the officers that face such a dangerous daily job.

Alex,

Not a single day goes by where I don't think about you. The world we are in is forever changing. The job we have come to love is getting harder day by day , but I use the toughness you had to keep me going. I will never forget you and will always share your story. You truly are a hero. I always thank back to when you asked me how your FTO's were and I told you one was a little tough lol. The look on your face was priceless. Anyway man I was just thinking about you and wanted to show you some love. Look down on us and keep us safe brother.

Until next time!

3 years since your Murder. Every morning when I wake up I realize you are not here, that you will never be here again. It's the weight of this grief I carry, unrelenting and at times, unbearable.

It's all you have missed out on and all you will never experience. I am so thankful you were loved by a woman. I feel sick inside when I think you will never be a Dad, a Husband, an old man.

I think about so much I wish I could articulate here but when I sit to remember, I am so overwhelmed by the now, my mind goes dim.

Year by year it becomes easier to live without you, but the loving, the missing the yearning, the enormous emptiness of the space in which you used to stand never wanes.

I am so proud you are my son Alex.

Love you forever, love you for always, as long as I'm living my Baby you'll be !

Love Mom

A colleague of mine informed me of your story. Reading through the details of this tragedy truly saddens me. Most people will never know the amount of compassion, strength and tolerance it takes to serve others. Most people would never dream of taking the responsibility to answer the call. Thank you brother for your service and please continue to watch over all of us who carry on.
