Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Suzanne Lee Kays

Deputy Kays,
You have left a sound legacy. Your death has not been in vain.

A POLICE OFFICER'S PRAYER

Lord I ask for courage

Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears...

Courage to take me
Where others will not go...

I ask for strength

Strength of body to protect others
And strength of spirit to lead others...

I ask for dedication

Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community
To keep it safe...

Give me Lord, concern
For others who trust me
And compassion for those who need me...

And please Lord

Through it all
Be at my side...

--Author Unknown

In the prayers of my family and I you will always be.
Rest sister, Rest.

ITS BEEN ALMOST 16 YEARS AND I STILL REMEMBER IT LIKE YESTERDAY. I REMEMBER THE TELEPHONE RINGING AT 3AM TELLING ME THE NEWS THAT YOU HAD BEEN SHOT AND KILLED. I REMEMBER SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE BED SHAKING NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO. I REMEMBER THINKING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME. WHEN WE GRADUATED FROM THE ACADEMY I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE ASSIGNED TO CENTRAL INTAKE DEEP NIGHTS BUT THEN THEY SWITCHED OUR ASSIGNMENTS BECAUSE INTAKE NEEDED A FEMALE OFFICER SO I WENT TO THE OLD JAIL. SUZANNE I STILL THINK ABOUT THAT TODAY. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME... SUE YOU WERE A TRUE FRIEND WHO WOULD DO ANYTHING IN THE WORLD FOR ANYONE. YOUR MEMORY LIVES ON. EVERYDAY I STRAP ON THE VEST AND TIGHTEN MY SAM BROWNE I KNOW YOU ARE THERE WITH ME. AFTER YOUR DEATH I WAS GIVEN THE SILVER BUCKLE OFF YOUR GUN BELT AND I STILL HAVE IT TODAY. HOPE YOUR SISTERS ARE DOING WELL. YOU ARE DEEPLY MISSED. YOUR OUR LITTLE SISTER... GO CLASS #88.

If folks are mentally competent to perpetrate a heinous crime of this magnitude, then they are mentally competent to be duly punished. What a slap in the face and a further tragedy to the loved ones of this brave heroine...

~~~~~The Broken Chain~~~~~

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.~~In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.~~It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.~~You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.~~Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.

January 25, 2005

On the anniversary of your death, I salute you for your service and honor you for your sacrifice.

May God rest your soul.

You were so young..............we will never forget. Rest in peace.
