Pat, it's been a while now and I still miss you. You seemed genuinely glad when I joined the Honor Guard unit. I know now it was only because there was finally someone older than you on the team. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge on flags, protocol, HG procedures. I learned so much riding with you to details. The history of the agency, the dirt on every past sheriff, military history. I learned how much you loved Aimee and the boys. I learned how much you loved the job.
I still can't believe the week of the funerals. How strange it was not to have you and Mark standing side by side with us. I hope we did you proud. I will always miss you brother. I was proud to call you my friend.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Patrick was killed.

To the Dailey family, fellow officers, and all who call Patrick 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.

Patrick was my son's brother in green as well as blue, and I thank him for his service in the Corps and bid him semper fi.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Logsdon gave to his community and the citizens of Maryland, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 10, 2016.

Pat Dailey was my friend, he was my husbands co-worker. He was a gentleman, a great father and a trusted brother in blue. When he died, a piece of the heart of the HCSO went with him. I miss you Pat, I miss your smile and the tip of your hat when you drove past my house and I pray everyday for your sons, Tyler and Brian.

My condolences to Deputy Dailey' s family, friends, and colleagues of the Harford County Sheriff's Office. In the bible, Jehovah God promises that he will undue violence and wickedness by permanently destroying those that cause it. Jehovah God also promises to to undue death. Revelation 21:4 reads "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes , and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

What a wonderful prospect our Heavenly Father has promise from our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death! My prayers are with all that have been affected by this tragedy.

it's small to many people but mr. daily came in Frienly's as many would think as no big deal but many years later he always had an effect on me. He adored his family and was the sweetest person in the world! He did affect me by being so great and nice not only to his family but to who was ever around him. He joked with me all the time and I thank him and his family. I'm so sorry for your lose and still shocked to see that it was him. A beautiful soul. God Bless his family and I am so sorry for the family. Can I just say that everyone seems to jump on police brutality has anyone seen what these many beautiful souls do for each and everyone of us. I was blessed to know him as a great customer yet he always made me feel special as well as the customers around him, I can't say enough about him but I thank you so much for everything you have ever done for me as citizen. God bless you and your family, I love you and your family forever, kisses and love always, Tina Marie

The first time I met Pat was at his first WWII reenactment in 1986. He was fresh out of the Marines and had the most infectious smile I ever saw. He portrayed a German soilder and for a guy named Dailey it just seemed goofy, but Pat made it work. We became fast friends and he was great fun to be around. He was lining up for a job with the Sherrif's department and I knew he would be a great deputy. Later we met at other events, Civil War, and more WWII moments. He loved my 1944 Willis Jeep and had fun riding around at Indian Town Gap. He was a devoted father and talked about his sons all the time. He would stop by my home in his patrol car and scare the hell out of me just for fun!In resent years he came to have coffee at Einstiens in Bel Air and joined our gossip group to talk politics, local news, history, and just about anything. He was always smiling. He always discussed his boys and their adventures. We shared much. I loved those moments, Pat was the real thing. Every so often he was off duty came for coffee and wore his Marine pull over. He loved the USMC. Now his chair is empty and so are our hearts. I miss his giggle, his friendship and the memories. There is an void in our souls we cannot fill. All who knew him know the Pat we knew. He will not be forgotten, and we will be lucky to have called him friend. Rest in peace Pat.

It has been said that a coward dies a thousand deaths, and a Hero dies but one. I personally do not subscribe to that thought. I believe that Our God recycles the most worthy of souls and calls on their service repeatedly, through out Time Immemorial. Those who have dedicated or given their lives to that most honorable of causes, the fight between good and evil, live on to fight another day, in another life time. Therefor, I know that I will stand with you again brother, perhaps not in this life, but most assuredly in the next. Until then, enjoy your brief respite with Our God, heal your wounds and visit with loved ones passed. Soon you will suit up and ride out again to fight the good fight once more. For this is the Glorious Honor that the cowards will never know......This, is the Hero's way.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
