Heavy Heart for Tampa

I debated and thought about how much I wanted to blog this but really didn't know how to sort my thoughts. It is REALLY bothering me, not only because Chris is an officer but the tragedy in general is weighing very heavy on my heart. It can happen to any officer on any call in any city or town. I just can't imagine living my life without Chris.

I then found this on one of my favorite blogs today and I couldn't have said it any better myself and wanted to share.


Many prayers are being said for the families, the children, the police dept and everyone affected. A little piece of the community died today and it is just heartbreaking.

Amen. I heard about this story and I was just in tears. I just don't understand sometimes and the world makes me sad. I worry what it will be like when our daughter grows up and it scares me like nothing else. I pray for the families, friends, officers and the community as a whole. Just senseless and unfair. WHY? It will never make any sense. Both so young and died for something stupid.

My heart and prayers go out to all our officers and men and women in the service. May Gd watch over them and bring them all back home safe every night.

I feel the same way... My husband is also a police officer and I hate seeing stories like this. They bring me to tears and I don't understand how people can be so horrible.

I flew into Tampa on Saturday. I am here helping my dad who is ill.
It is so very sad and I will keep them in my prayers.

Ashley -
I am also married to a cop and can't imagine him not coming home to me.

It looks like these guys have been honored on the Officer Down Memorial Page and that is a wonderful thing! http://www.odmp.org/

My heart always drops whenever I hear stories like that. I immediately think of the family he has left behind, his other officers he works with, his friends...everything. So very sad.

That story just makes me SICK. I hope they find these sick sick people. But that nothing compared to the feelings of grief these families have to go through and poor little boys without a dad. That breaks my heart. I just cried while reading that story. And also to hear one of the wife's of one officer is 9 months pregnant. How sad & scary.

As you know, these situations leave me despondent and sick with worry... We DO put it out of our minds on a daily basis. And then it sneaks right up and smacks you in the face when you least expect it. My hears breaks for these women, families, coworkers, friends...
