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.

Friday Feb. 3, 2017 is you 25th Birthday. It is so lonely without you.

Last year when I put this on Facebook you got lots of "Happy Birthdays". I was so uncomfortable that this year I probably won't share.

Miko, your buddy, is here with me and he looks after me like a Nanny. He misses you like crazy.

I love you. I want you back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Beautiful Boy Alex, this is the 2nd Christmas without you and trust me when I say it has not become any easier.

I miss your beautiful face that beamed every year as I would tease you with presents, opening some before Christmas because I couldn't wait.

I loved watching your reaction when I actually got you something you wanted and we would hug and laugh and then go try it out.

Impossible for me to tell you how much I miss you my Love, there are simply no words.

I wake up every day my first though going to that you are no longer here. I am not being as eloquent as I would like to be because whenever I think of you it tears a bit at my soul each time. I still cry. Yes my Baby I still cry because I will never see you again, but my love for you has only grown. I love you my Beautiful Boy. Mom

It seems like everything triggers a memory about you around this time of year. Sometimes I run out of things to say but I never run out of things to think about. We're trying to stay motivated but every busy night feels like an average night with you on the shift. I think about you all the time, bro. Miss you, bro...but you knew that.

There's not a day that goes by where I don't think about you. You have made me a better and smarter Police Officer. I talk about you every chance I get to keep your legacy alive and to show people that tragedies can strike at anytime. Thank you for watching over everyone Alex. RIP #190
