We answered calls together, comforted thoses that need comfort. Ran after thoses that needed to be caught. Came to defend the weak. Counsel each other in our faults. We shared many laughs, and great memories. I miss my friend, rest well brother! Call sign 803

May Mrs. Smith and her family find peace and comfort knowing that although Holmes has physically left this earth, he will never leave their hearts and memories. Holmes will be kept alive through laughter, tears, sorrow, joy, momentous occasions, at quiet alone times, he will ALWAYS be with you. Know at this time of great loss, you have also gained an unending family of Holmes Brothers and Sisters of Blue. Our thoughts continue to be with you at this trying time. The pain will never fully go away, but I hope some day for his family as well as his family of blue and his friends there will be some relief. My heart goes out to You's right now. God Speed!

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

To the Smith family, fellow deputies, and all who call Holmes beloved, 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 Investigator Smith gave to his community and the citizens of South Carolina, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on November 5, 2014.
