Reflections for Officer Jeffery Lee Bull

Oh Jeffie, Where do I begin. 20 years seems like yesterday. I still break down on a regular basis however, I know you are always near. I often think about the warm things you would always do when I was a child and you were in your teens. I remember you taking me out on the sled, and cooking me dinner in the snow..I was only about 4 and still remember it so clear. You were always a great cook. The time I did not understand why I was not invited to the birthday party next door, you took your hard earned money (from lawn mowing or something) and bought me a blow up pool, king cole bbq chips and an orange crush..you even put your big feet in the pool with me. You made it all OK since you were more fun than a stupid Birthday party. The time you took me trick or treating and the "bad" boys took the carved pumpkin off your head and smashed it...you were pulling me in the wagon. You held me to stop my crying and told me it was all OK. You were only about 13 or 14 at the time and I was 5 or 6. Your shoulder was so strong then as it always was. The time I fell off my bike and hurt my pelvic area bad. You were the only one home. You did not hesitate to help me with first aid even though we were both embarrassed...your compassion kicked in and your shy teenage boy ways left. The time Mum, Roxanne and I were in the bad accident. You came running down the road from your school. With our severe injuries, our fright, we all calmed knowing you were there with us. What I remember the most: your tickles until I couldn't breath, your chicken walk, your comedy and THE biggest heart I have ever seen.
I hope you can hear me when I talk to you when I am down. I wore your flannel robe until it was thread bare.

I know you are my guardian angel. I now live 2000 miles away and my new neighbor came into my home, saw your picture and said "My God, that is Jeff". Small world, he was your post master and contributed in starting up your department. He and I both agree, God put us as neighbors for a reason. Maybe someday we will find out why.

You were such a good person, your job on earth was done...God needed you with him to continue your work on a higher level. We were so very blessed to have you with us in your short 35 years. If God allowed me to choose my big brother, I would have chosen you any way.

I love you Jeff, I miss you and I am sorry I bit your finger that time when I was 6.

Love,

Your Baby Sister...aka Brat P.S. Give Dad a huge hug for me.

Jeff - You are missed so much every day. I think of you often, especially late at night, when I could expect a phone call from you, just to talk. You would be so proud of your daughters and their children. I can see you now, dressed as Santa - wouldn't your grandkids love that!! Give Dad a big hug for me. Love and miss you.......

I recall that May 9th very well; The day after Marshall's birthday and very shortly after letting Marshall know that our mother had died early that very morning,we had a return call regarding Jeff's death. To loose a mother and son the same day must have been horrible to bear. The Bull family will never forget.

It's really hard to believe that it's been 20 years now since your passing. I will never forget the day when we got the news. You are truly missed by all of your family and friends and we think of you often. You were always such a joy to be around and what they say about you having a big heart is so true.

Love,

We (my son, Bodie and I) will remember you especially in our prayers on this day - May 9th - the day you gave your life in service for others.

Tell Uncle Marshall that it's his year to send back the Thanksgiving card, signed in pencil, so I can erase the signature and send it back to him next year. He'll know what I mean! :o)

You are both loved and missed.....

I have some great memories of going and visiting 'Uncle' Jeff, Becky and Alyssa when I was younger. Andy and I always looked forward to those visits (and the subs). My father (Bob)and mother (Doreen) always had wonderful stories and memories that they shared with us.

I was in Jeff,s 55th Maine academy class and drove to and from the academy with Jeff every weekend. Jeff was one of the funniest guys I,ve ever known but he also was a hard worker running his sub shop and being a cop at the same time. We also worked occasionally together on some calls
because our towns bordered each other.Jeff was always professional and knowledgeable when working with him.I,ll never forget this period of my life and I,ll never forget
Jeff who set the standard of professionalism that I follow to this day. January 20,2007

I never knew you Officer Bull but I have been friends with your oldest daughter for many years now. I just wanted to let you know that she is one of the most caring people I have ever met. You would be so proud of her. She is a true friend to all she meets,always willing to help anyone. I am sure you are smiling down on her and her family too. She has a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys. Your other daughter I have met a few times and you would be proud of her also-she has the most beautiful little girl. You and your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Thank you and God bless you.

Jeff was my roomate while at the Police Academy in Waterville. He was a widowed dad trying to make a better life for his two daughters. He was a hard worker and was fun to be around. He had a huge heart and was like by all in the 55th Academy Class.

He will be missed.

Jeff,
It's a shame that those that worked with you and the neighboring agencies have not remembered your sacrifice. I remembered the day you were lost and how it affected the entire law enforcement community. You presence is felt everyday we don a uniform and we appreciate your watching over us.
