Reflections for Officer Brent David Wisdom

Brent, I stopped by today to let you know I have NEVER forgotten about you..I will.NEVER forget sitting in the mall parking lot waiting for you to finish changing that tire when all hell broke lose. We were fixing to go eat dinner. Well, today we would be retired old veteran buddy. its been over 30 years now. We can still go 46 one day and redeeming a rain check. I still get choked up everytime I stop by to see you and write you. Our badge numbers were like one number apart. We were those close together and still are today.
Rest in peace brother

Hey Rookie! Today I stopped by here to just reflect on my friends lost to the job. I'm in NY now, ( Don't ask) and am working on a new project that involves local Peer Support, C.O.P.S. and our Veterans Chaplin support group. Been retired now 12 years but you're on my mind often. Training you was such a pleasure and I embark on this new venture in honor of you and my other friends who died.
God Bless Brother.

I attended high school with Brent and was devastated when I heard of his passing. Thank you for your service Brent, you were always a friendly and honorable guy. It’s impossible to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.

Not a week goes by Brent that I don't think about you. I remember the red headed kid working out in the warehouse, sweet, always helping. Before I knew it a young man stood before me and was ready to embark in his life long dream of being a Police Officer. I'm so glad you got to live your dream, even if it was just for a short time. I have always been proud to say I'm your friend. It's so hard to believe that it's been almost 22 years since you left us. We miss you Brent!

Brent, it has taken 20 years to really write this to you. I remember the night the accident happened. I was sitting in the mall parking lot in my patrol car waiting on you so we could go eat dinner. Then it happened. I was in shock. I still have not gotten over it. I remember you and I in the academy together and graduating two badge numbers apart. You (2567) and me (2565). I remember you going and buying your new black Chevrolet truck. I could go on forever. Kirk, your brother took over in your steps. You would be proud of him. I miss you man. I will remember you for the rest of my life. Your buddy, Chip Ferguson

I went to Mandfield High School with Brent. He was a sweetheart of a guy.
My Daddy was a FWPD cop and when he came home and told me, I was stunned.
Brent certainly didn't deserve the horrible circumstances in which he passed away, none of the officers did. They deserved so much better.
Rest in peace Brent and the many other souls that sacrificed everything to Protect & Serve us all.

Seen his name on cops...and felt it would be an honor to remember him and read about him. If any of his friends or family reads this, do know I am so sorry for your loss and hope your pain has gotten less over the past 20 years...although I doubt it has...please know a stranger also shares your loss...even if knowing a good person and fine young man died doing something greater than most can ever dare do. I wish I could give you my life in exchange for his. I know he would have used his better. I'm sorry.

I did not know you. I have lived in Fort Worth a long time, so I wanted to thank you and all the other officers for protecting us. I couldnt sleep and was flipping channels when an episode of COPS from 1993 was airing. I watched out of curiosity. I saw the Memorial at the end and did a search for you name. I see you have been gone for almost 20 yrs. I believe the person who killed you should've recieved more punishment. May God bless your soul and your family. Thank you again for being you.

I can't believe this Sept it will have been 20 years since you left us Brent. I still remember the first time I saw you at Mastercraft. A skinny red-headed boy working out in the warehouse for the summer. It was a pleasure watching you grow up to a young man over the years. I remember the morning I was getting ready for work when I heard the news over the TV. I think about you often and I'm so glad you were in my life. We're all so proud of you and I know you watch over your little brother, Officer Kirk. We love you kiddo

Hi Brent. I was just sitting on my back porch the other day looking up at the stars and I was thinking about what a great friend you were. I sat there and talked to you for a while wondering how you were doing and just wanted to let you know I missed you.I think about you often and wish you had the chance to live your life to the fullest.

Brent this time of year you are missed so much and especially so this year without your Dad being here to comfort me through another year. My heart is still broken there is not a day goes by that I do not think about you. I love you and miss you so much. Take care of your Dad he too never got over your death.

Brent I remember you playing ball with mike jr and watching you grow up. I remember how polite and pleasant you were a true young gentleman. I was heart broken the day that I found out you had been killed especially wearing the uniform that I had worn for 13 years and working the same area that I had worked. I remember working traffic at debbie lane and n. main for your funeral. I remember the shock on your mom and dad face as they came to grips with you being gone. I remember at the church 9/11 event how they had accidentally overlooked you when honoring all the police and firefighters killed in the line of duty. A lot of time has passed but you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my man.

I always remember seeing you at church...a very handsome teenager with the biggest Western belt buckle! Where have the years gone? A huge blessing the years have brought are your sister-in-law and your niece and nephews. Watching the two boys playing with each other reminded me of you and Kirk as young boys. So active and fun loving! Your Mom is as wonderful of a Grandmother as she is a Mother. I loved the poster they made that was on display at your Dad's funeral. He will be missed.

You will never be forgotten and always loved more than words can express. Thank you for your service as a police officer.

You are one of God's special gifts that he lent this world. Without men and women such as yourself, the world would be a dark and dangerous place. May you sleep in peace and may our Holy Mother Mary wrap her arms around your mother.

Hey Brenter, your Dad and I just got home from the C.O.P.S. PARENT RETREAT we had a really good time talking with the other parents about our beautiful children. It is a sad time but also a fun time, we met some really nice people from all over the US. We miss you so much and wish you were here to see what a great officer, man and father Kirk is. You would just love his wife and kids they keep us laughing and when we talk about Uncle Brent they know who you are. Just know that we miss you and love you so much. Mom

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.
