I was in the Police Academy at Walters State when you were killed. Our academy class attended your funeral.

I often think of you and your family. I will always remeber your daughter standing by your casket brother.

If she ever needs anything I would be there for you for her.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Scott,

It's hard to believe that September will be 16 years since the academy. I'll never forget all the fun we had..thanks to you, Boley, and the guys for taking me under your wing. I know now that eighteen was too young to be where I was, but you couldn't have told me that then. When you left it was my wake up call. I realized how fast life can pass and how precious it is. I've tried to always stay sharp and vigilant and to always take the time to teach the new guys the same and to set an example- just like you did for me. I will never know if being anything less would have meant a different outcome for me out there. I owe that to you. Every year at the wall when I touch your name and it's just me and you, I see the names of our brothers and sisters continue to grow and remember what an awesome burden and resposibility we have. You have not gone in vain. You live on in the lives of those you touched and helped to mold. Those of us who continue to march toward the sound of the guns when all others flee will always remember your courage, sacrifice, and the lessons you left us. Your spirit is always with me. Rest well, brother, until we meet again.

Brother Miller,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Respectfully,
You’re Brothers in Blue

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS OF DEP. SHERIFF MILLER.
HE IS REMEMBERED TODAY ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS SACRIFICE.
I KNOW IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE IT HAS BEEN 11 YEARS. IT PROBABLY SEEMS LIKE IT WAS JUST YESTERDAY THAT THIS TRAGEDY HAPPENED.

To the family and friends of Deputy Scott Miller and his fellow officers with the Cooke County Sheriff's Department:

On behalf of our entire family, I wish to extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Deputy Miller was brutally murdered eleven years ago. His valor and bravery are not forgotten.

Our family grieves with you and for you. We share your agony as we lost our beloved Larry Lasater of the Pittsburg Police Dept. when he was fatally shot during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers on April 23rd.

May you continue to be comforted by the caring and support of your law enforcement community, and other police survivors.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service Scott gave to his community as a police officer and to his country through his military service, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 11, 1994

Scott,
It has been almost seven(7)years since you left us. I worked the night shift when you died, and I remember receiving the call that told us what had happened. There are times I feel like I've never really woke up, since that terrible day. Life, has gone on without you, but it has never been the same. Now, your brother Bill has pinned on the badge and strapped into harness. Sometimes it like looking at your ghost, but I then realize, its not. He's in the honor guard, just like you were. And his sense of pride and dedication to the unit is as strong as yours was. Scott,we miss your humor. We miss your dedication. We miss what you brought to the job, but most of all ... we miss you. Rest in peace 708, your tour is done. Goodbye, Scott.

Sgt. Mike Hansel
Newport Police Department

Even though I didn't know you, my heart hurts for all those affected by your death. My husband has been gone as long as you have, it has only been a little over two years. It saddens me to see how young you were when your watch ended. It is always a tragedy where an officer looses his or her life. You served your department well. I know that you must have touched many lives in your short time here. May you always be remembered as the HERO that you are. May you rest in peace................John 15:13
