My God Mark, another year has passed. You've been in heaven for 16 years now. I was told time will heal my pain, not true. I think about you everyday, I miss you everyday and I wonder how our lives would be if you were still here.

Please continue to watch over our kids. Matthew is 20 now and Whitney is 15, if only you could be here to see how awesome they are.

I love you!!
Your Wife, Liz

Mark I was just reading your entry and remember the day you passed. I have read all of your wifes thoughts and it really hits home more each time I read her entries. Liz really loves you as all in Law Enforcement does. I live in Roseville and everytime I pass your frewwway sign I remember the day you left us. My son is in the LAPD academy and my daughter is with Customs and Border Protection and Ryan was a Roseville explorer. You are missed and from a old Chippy you will never be forgotten. I want your wife to always know that you are a HERO...I hope you will be looking down and watch over your family as much as you can. Semper Fi brother and God Bless..Blue and Gold will always remember you....

15 years ago today was the last time we said "I love you", we kissed.... 15 years ago today you were taken from me. My God, time does not heal all pain. It just makes it more tolerable.

I miss you, I love you!

May all of our pain continue to change into wonderful memories that make us smile and even sometimes laugh when we think of you and fun times we all had together....

My dear friend, I was so lucky to have you in my life! You, Liz, and Matthew were so special to me. (Matthew was always my little date.) You are the closest thing I will ever have to a brother. I know you are up in heaven watching over me and maybe even sometimes shaking your head but hopefully most of the time smiling......I love you my brother! Miss you today and everyday...

On the 14th anniversary of Officer White's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Officer White is not forgotten.

Dear God My Love, our son has graduated from high school!

It is so hard to believe, as he stood there in his cap and gown I remembered the night you graduated from high school (it seems like yesterday that we were kids in high school planning our future). I remembered being excited yet scared because I knew that your life was changing so much and I still had a year left in high school. I'm still told he looks just like you, and I couldn't be happier.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you.

I love you!

Mark, I can't believe that it has been over 13 years since your tragic death. I will always remember you. Rest in Peace my brother.

God Mark, another year has gone by. 13 years ago yesterday you were taken from me... It is still hard to believe someone so alive could die. I miss you still so much. The kids are so big, I know you are watching over them. If only we had more time. What I wouldn't give to be able to talk to you again.

You are loved and NEVER forgotten.

Your Wife,
Liz

It has been 13 years now, Mark. It still seems impossible that you were taken from your loved ones and your law enforcement family. I remember where I was when I saw the breaking news on TV.

You are remembered.

"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.

I remember when this happened. I remember sitting and crying for Ofc. White, his family, friends and fellow officers. I hope time has eased the pain a little bit. I still think of him when I am working. Although, I did not know him, I know what he stood for. And in that, there is honor. Rest in peace, Sir.

Mark,

Another Christmas is fast approaching. Christmas was always your favorite time of year, since your death the holidays have been hard on me.... I think about you constantly. I miss you so much. Another San Diego officer was killed last night, a 23 yo Oceanside police officer. Will it end? I don't think so.

I love you!

Mark,
This is Mark Lopez, I was home traveling with my wife and two kids this last July 06, to put them in college. I was driving down the road to Roseville and I saw Mark White Memorial Highway, my heart sank and I asked my Mother, Nikki Tuttle, that's not Mark White my buddie is it? She said "yes Mark it is", tears welled in my eyes and my Mom continued to tell this 41 year old son how it happened. Being a Father of two girls and a husband to a wife, it really hit me hard. I have been in the Army Special Forces and now coming up on retirement after 22 years. I remember being your 1st string catcher and the fireball you through down the pipe as a pitcher. I remember when we went to the games on the Mets and your Dad was the coach. We won the series several times and we made All Stars together. Your Mom and Dad always took us to Shakeys after we won and no Pizza if we lost. Man those were good old times. I think if I had not joined the Forces and left Yuba City, I would have ended up an Officer like yourself. I am so proud of you and your beautiful wife's reflections. I only wish I could have been there for your family and your Mother and Father. From your Catcher on the Mets! God Bless you and your Family, see you in Heaven Brother!

Mark, you would be so proud. Whitney made the All Star team and was their clean up batter. She is quite the ball player, they had her at 3rd base because of her arm, until the 1st baseman got hurt then they moved her to 1st. I want to believe that you were able to watch her from heaven. God, I wish you were here to see her play. Matthew isn't real interested in sports, he is truly happy in front of the computer. Everyone still says he looks exactly like you. Thank God I still have a part of you with me in them.

I love you!!!

Wow Mark, another anniversary has come and gone... 11 years ago you were taken from me and it still feels like yesterday. All of our hopes, plans and dreams ended that friday afternoon. Our kids are getting so big, Matthew is 15 and Whitney is 10, if only you had a chance to meet our Whitty. You would be having a ball right now coaching her softball team, though our little pitcher is on the DL with a broken arm. Our time together was so brief, only 15 years, you are missed so much. I love you now and always.

Your wife and best friend,
Liz

Mark,

I miss the time that you allowed me to share with your family as if they were my own. (The years of Sunday brunch at El Zarape.) I wish you had the opportunity to meet my family and husband. You and Tom would have been the best of friends. Our twin boys would have adored you too! What blessings they are!! I will never forget your birthday since the twins will forever share their birthday with you.

I feel honored and blessed to have called you my friend for the short 15 years we had.

I miss you my dear friend!

To the family and friends of Officer Mark White and the Roseville Police Department and most especially to Officer Mark White:

It has been ten years since your death, but you are not forgotten. Your valor will be forever remembered and honored. How very sad that you had to die at such a young age, and under such tragic circumstances.

It must have been a terrible blow to your department to have to undergo a line of duty death by accidental gunfire. I hope and pray that all the involved officers have healed and forgiven themselves, although I know that was a life changing event and the memory will always be there.

You must have had a very special loving relationship with your wife because you can tell from her postings that you are with her every day and greatly missed by your family.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service you gave to the community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice you and your family made on February 10, 1995 in the line of duty.
Rest In Peace.
