As 1 year approaches I want you to know that you are missed terribly,. You are brought up in conversation all the time and yes you still make us laugh. You missed a good season of Georgia football ( we blew it again). You made alot of friends while you were with us buddy. I love ya and think of you daily. I wish there was a way to turn back time, I would. Enjoy Heaven until we can share it with you.

I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 where it says, "And 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." Until we see him again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

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

To the Lindsey family, fellow deputies, and all who call Taylor 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you and your partner when you were slain by a cowardly assassin.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Lindsey gave to his community and the citizens of Florida and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 19, 2018.

I had the opportunity to work with you several times, you were the epitome of a Deputy Sheriff and what we all strive to be like. On one occasion you responded to my residence while I was on midnight shift to check the yard for my wife "who heard a noise". When I got home she told me all about Deputy Lindsey and how professional you were, she referred to you as "the one with the big muscles". We are another brother down, but holding strong for you. We will see you again brother, hold it down up there with Noel.
