Today is one of those days...missing you ALOT !!!!Doesn't help I'm listening to Van Halen <3
Semper Fi brother - you are not forgotten!
We love you and miss you more than words can say. Knowing you're watching over us all gives us comfort.
I still think about you at different times. You were such a good friend. I know we lost touch when you went into the military, but I still remember those fun times you and I had! I miss you buddy! God Bless your family! Until we meet again Whitey!

SEMPER FI ERIC
God Bless/RIP,to ALL who served.Thank YOU for your service,Eric.And also on the PPD."And remember,when one falls,Another brings Him Home".Semper Fi
Hey sweetie, its been awhile. Today I'm having an especially hard time. There are some days that are harder than others. I know today there isn't any significance. Its not our anniversary, birthday, etc. it's just I miss you. You would think that after all these years the pain of your loss wouldn't hurt so bad but it does. Not all day every day but every now and then I just cry all day long. Okay that's an exaggeration. I cry and laugh and cry some more and then laugh and the cycle goes on. The other day I was laying in bed with my eyes closed just recalling memory after memory about you. I guess I had a huge smile on my face (which you always were able to make me laugh and smile), someone came in and asked me what I was doing, then proceeded to comment that they haven't seen me smile like that in a long time. I still don't know why your time here with us was cut so short. It isn't fair and I am really angry about it. I miss you so much, my feet are freezing since you left us. xoxo
Happy Birthday Eric. Don't be mad about the balloon I thought it would make you smile up there. I miss that beautiful smile of yours. The way your whole face would light up and your eyes would dance. xoxo
Our Deepest Sympathy In This Time Of Loss
I just ran across the story of how Eric passed. I am also touched by your letters to him on this site. I have never.had the.privledge to meet either of you but want you to know I hold you up in prayer. My deepest sympathy....he is a hero forever
god be with you .dusty mills landis fire
Hey babe, I guess you have another person you know with you now. Hope you were there to welcome Paul. It's hard for those you leave behind especially when it's unexpected. I love you and miss you very much. I like knowing you're there that you haven't left us so keep sending me our songs.
I don't know to much of the story. But from what i read im sorry for what happened...
Hey Sweetheart. Another year another holiday without you. Yesterday I was watching a movie and the actor had the same lips as you. (The actor also had abs that you would've loved to have but we wont talk about that.)It's the little everyday things that remind me of you Eric. One of your best friends is getting married soon. I know you would've wanted to do something BIG. I just don't know what. I feel like I should do something, something that you would've done. I don't know babe. I'm not you. Even on my best day I wouldn't have measured up to you on your worst. You made everything so easy. I wish I was more like you. So easy going, going with the flow. I miss you and I always will. Eric I need your help everyday. I know you have "given me my space" to grow and heal. What you don't get is I will always need you. I'm not sure what you are up to these days. I want you to know that you are not forgotten. I think of you all the time. I have What would Eric do moments every day. Love you.
Semper Fi Brother, you will not be forgotten!
I can't believe it has been seven years since you left us. The pain of losing you is as intense now as it was when they knocked on our door. I don't know why you had to leave us so soon. I know that I was blessed for the little time I had with you. You really brought out the best in others. I love you Eric very very much. You are missed.
Happy Birthday Baby. You would've been 37 today. I know I am older. "Robbing the cradle" your dad used to say. Eric we didn't celebrate your birthday the way you would've liked. The kids no longer like going to Hooters. So I'm sorry I didn't take them. I miss you Eric. Some days your son looks just like you. Some of the things he does and says, I swear I am looking at a younger you. Thank you Eric for picking me. Happy Birthday Sweetheart. Love you forever.
Eric time keeps passing and I think it's another birthday or another holiday you are missing. I don't know if you are still around. I certaintly don't feel your presence anymore, if you are. I just wanted to let you know that each and everyday I think of you. I think of what you'd be doing if you were. Time keeps going...without you...I miss you...love you forever
Semper Fi Brother,
MAny of us went the same way of USMC to law enforcement to better ourself and families. You will forever remembered in many way of countless people.

Holding you in our hearts forever.
Semper Fi Brother, you will never be forgotten!
Eric, we love you and miss you daily! You are never forgotten! RIP! Thank you for watching over your family.
You will never be forgotten
You are in my thoughts all the time. You are in my heart and in my soul.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
Eric 5 1/2 years later, your sacrafice has NOT been forgotten & will never be forgotten. You gave your life protecting strangers, your legacy is eternal.
To Colleen: To say you are an AMAZING woman would be a complete understatement. Colleen, I know you live this loss every second of every day and will for the rest of your life. Please, know that soooooo many people who don't know you & never will, pray for you regularly. Please know that Eric is not forgotten & won't be forgotten. We as citizens lost a Hero that fateful day, while you & your two beautiful children lost your world...
I know Eric has been there watching over you three over the past several years & is probably in AWE of you & how you have fought to keep going. Eric had the amazing blessing of being loved by a very special woman. A woman whose love has never waived even in death.
Colleen, Eric is now an angel and YOU are a HERO!!! You are Eric's HERO for being the best Mother for the babies he left behind...You are your childrens HERO for being an amazing mother who keeps their Daddy's spirit alive in them and you are MY HERO...
God Bless you Colleen and thank you...
The choice was not his, it was His.
As some point in all of our lives, our time on Earth will expire. For most of us, we know not the day, the time, or the hour. Absolutely Eric is there.
Each time you hear a song and think of him, he is there. When you go to the case of letters and recall, he is there. When you smile as you think of one of his jokes, he is there.
He is with you every second of each day. Only now, he knows that we know he remains with us, but would like for us to focus on our lives. And, of course his is watching the wrestling meets. How else do you think Connor can get out of those tight holds and pin his opponent? Yes, it with his practice and training, but also with help from above, Eric.
I was going through the case of letters and cards that we kept. I am so glad that we kept them. Sometimes I start doubting your love for me. I know it wasn't your fault that you were killed...it is just that I sometimes feel that if you loved us you wouldn't have left us. I know it doesn't make sense. It is just my insecurities. everyone of those letters and cards remind me of the love that we shared. It seems like you left us so long ago. You promised me that we would grow old together...you lied to me...you broke your promise. Eric you were a man of your word. Why didn't God let you keep that one?? Ask him for me. I have so many issues now babe. I feel like everyone isn't going to keep their promises and I am extremely insecure about most things in my life now. Why do I get more screwed up as time goes on? Thought people get stronger...not weaker?? where are you honey? can you still see us? Are you there when Connor wins his wrestling meet? Are you watching over us, protecting us?? or have you moved on? I am so confused. I miss you so much Eric.
Thinking of you today and every day. We all miss you. Love, Aunt Pat
"Although removed from this world, their sacrifice will long remain a part of our lives. Their watchful presence will continue to protect us each hour of each day. Silence will never dissolve their memory."

You will never be forgotten,
Semper Fi, Brother.
Your spirit will be remembered forever-we all miss you and will never forget
what a wonderful man you were. God
bless your family.
Eric I dread this day every year. Not like a need an anniversary date to remember you or how you left us. I remember every detail of the last day we spent together before my brother called me and told me something happened. After that I tried to get ahold of you. Then when I called the station I immediately knew that something was not right....after that everything became blurred. On your anniversary date I don't want to focus on how you died. I want to celebrate your life. Eric you made people around you better people. You made us smile and laugh more. You made us see that there was good in this world. connor still says, "if there was fun to be had my daddy would find it." I love you babe. You will never, ever be forgotten!!!!When it's my time to go you better be there waiting for me. No practical jokes on me!! Love and miss you everyday.
Colleen I dont know you but I served with Eric in Hawaii and I have to say, any man would be extremely proud and happy to know the wife he left loved him so much she would spill her heart out in these entries and understands there is a life past this one. It must be insanely lonely and rough as I can ONLY try to imagine losing a spose. I am married with 3 kids and one on the way and it is very frightening knowing we can leave at any time. Just know he is in a better place although rough to imagine a better place than with his loved ones. I teared reading some of your entries and I really really feel for you. Tell Eric Steve Karsten said high.
Man White this is Stevo from Golf 2/3 we werent real close while in the Marines but I remember you clearly and how goofy you liked to act man. No one could imagine leaving like you had to but we know your in a much better place. Maybe your communicating to all you knew some how? It affects my thoughts having known you and now knowing this happened to you. Its really crazy. Brother say hi to Jones and Jesus for me. Just relax now. I'm sure people are in true care of your family down here. See you some day.
Happy Anniversary babe. A day doesn't go by that you are not missed. Until the day we can be together again...
I love you!!!! @--->--
Hi honey. I have written in here many times but they never get posted. Like always you are in my thoughts. Lately I have been sadder than usual. I know your birthday and the anniversary of your death is approaching. It is always worse during that time. I am back visiting my parents. Today was Pauls 40th surprise party. I haven't felt you around in awhile but I felt you there. It wasn't the same as you being here in the flesh. It was nice to feel your presence. How have I missed you. Chach was there and we travelled down memory lane of our time in Hawaii. Those were some of the best memories of my life. We had so much fun in Hawaii. I laugh so hard I end up crying. It makes me so happy on one hand but on the other it makes me wish I could go back in time. Change our course. Change where we moved to after you got out. Maybe then you would still be with us. How I wish I could have you back. The kids need you Eric. The kids need a dad, their dad. I try my best babe, it's just not even close. I miss you so much Eric. Hope you know how much you impacted my life and those who knew you. You are always in my thoughts. If you can, can you give me some help and guidance from time to time? I certainly need all the help I can get. Miss you Whitey.
Whitey my friend you are missed. Over the years I have told so many stories to friends about Chach pulling the "squirrel" out from under the mustang, about the best Thanksgiving ever at you and Colleen's apartment and the many other good times we shared. I was so looking forward to telling you about my adventures over the past years since we met up in Phoenix.
My life is better for having known you Whitey.
Hey Eric. A day doesn't go by that you are not in my thoughts. I miss you so much. Time might have passed but the pain of losing you is still there. I wish I was half the person you were. You continue to inspire me to try and be the best person I can be. Your spirit lives on Eric.
Eric you are never forgotten..You live on in our hearts. We love you so much.
Merry Christmas Eric! love and miss you all the time.
Many of us, your family and friends, think of you daily, if not more often, and appreciate you coming to us in the silence of our nights, or the chaos of our days, to be with us.
As these pages show, you, are in a place where we will be with you again, but for now, will never,.....never be forgotten.
Four years is a long time Eric - I want you to know that you are not forgotten. I miss your friendship a great deal - your wife is such a strong woman she is an inspiration to all of us. Semper Fi Brother.
Eric, I cant believe its been four years that youve been gone. while I try to honor your memory by living a life that would make you proud please know that you are deeply missed everyday. I know you are with us all everyday and that eases the pain of losing you. Keep watching over our family, we all need you!
Love your brother,
Hey honey.... there isn't a day that I don't think of you. I miss you very much. Actually I miss everything about you. I hope that you look down from heaven and that I make you proud of me. I know I mess up...it's hard doing everything without you. I do my best babe. I love you, forever.
I was just doing a search looking for old Marine buddies and I found the article of you. Man, 13 yrs I waited to look you up becase I was too "busy". I'm sorry! I'll never forget the times we shared in the corps! This facial expression of you I dont remember...the Whitey I knew smiled and laughed 24/7. I'll pray for your family. From one Illini to another!
Ron "JD" Newman
I want to thank you for inspiring me to follow the family tradition of being a cop. I decided in November of 2007 that I was going to test for departments and I got hired by Minooka Police Department in February of 2008. I am currently at the Police Training Institute in Champaign, IL. And am told that this is one of the best training schools for cops in the nation. There have been MANY times here I that I know you have helped me and I've asked for your support and inspiration in times of need here. I questioned my ability here in the beginning, but then I hit the turning point where it all made sense and I began to sharpen my senses and my skills. I wanted to let you know the coincidence of my badge number being #724 and your badge number. I met someone here that knew you out in Arizona, he worked for the DOC there, and said that you were a fantastic level headed guy! I appreciate your guidance every day that I hit my struggles, I take a deep breath in situations where I am stuck and all of a sudden the answer comes to me, Thank you. I will forever know the meaning of "In Valor There Is HOPE!" I am now part of the family, and I know you are proud of me!
Hey Babe..it's been awhile since I wrote in here. In a few weeks you would have been 34. I know I am still older. Not that it mattered much you still wouldn't listen to me, your elder. I can hear your dad saying I like robbing the cradle. We both know you were much wiser for your age. You had an old soul, very, very wise Mr. White. Wow, next week would have been our 12th anniversary. I always thought that we were that couple...the ones that stand the test of time. The couple that stays together threw thick and thin, we would have been that couple Eric. The kids and I are visiting my parents. I stopped last night on the way back from the beach to get fried clams. While waiting for my order Roberto called. Funny timing..anyway we were chatting and I looked over at the specials board and I saw Lobsters listed and I thought back to the first time you came out here to meet my parents. Little did they know that they were meeting their son in law. Oops maybe we should have told them that we were married...I remember when we went to the Venus and my dad suggested you order the three pound baked stuffed lobster. When they ever brought that out your eyes almosted popped out of your head. That sucker was huge. I remember you said, " What is this a teradactle?" In your newly forming East Coast accent. You can still make me smile honey. You would be happy to know that there is a new slide at the Yacht Club as well. I know how much you didn't like the other one. Well the kids and I will be in Illinois again this year over your birthday. Your parents are having a family reunion. No offense but I really don't like going to your family reunioins. There are so many people and I can't remember everyones name. I try and keep your brother close by for back up or atleast a great resource. The kids are looking forward to playing in the creek and eating your moms delicious cooking. As you know things have been better for me. I still struggle from time to time so I appreciate all the help you send me. Thank you honey for your most recent visit. I really, really needed that. I know that is what you have wanted for me since the day you left us. You know how stubborn I can be though. Somethings take longer than others. I am glad that you are taking good care of Maddie and Bailey. I love and miss you so much.
It has been a long time since I have written in this book, but I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I think partly it has to do with the officer who was recently slain in Chicago, but it may also be because I know that you and Colleen's anniversary is coming up soon. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for saying "Hi" to me on the highway yesterday. I don't know why you chose semi-trucks to be your thing to say hi to me, but maybe it's the "south of 80" in us! : ) I miss you so much still and think of you often. As I always request, please keep a close eye on Colleen and the kids because they are the ones who really need you the most.
As a few people have already stated, I found this page by accident and the messages truly touched my heart. Your messages to your husband remind us all to savor our lives with our loved ones and to treasure every minute with them as though it is our last.
In valor there is hope.
Happy New Year to you and your family.
Hi babe. Well we are back from our trip. I had a hard time leaving. Reminising about us and the wonderful memories we shared in Hawaii were hard to leave again. I thought I remembered everything but it became evident of how much came back to me while I was there. I guess I didnt remember everything like I thought.The kids loved hearing about all the stories. I think their favorite was the one about the Hard Rock Cafe and you having to drive there. When they saw how close we lived, they thought it was funny. Oh how you had to hand the valet that long screwdriver. I wish I knew where that screwdriver is. I'd have it framed. Well the kids and I decorated the house...finally. Our old neighbor Joe took the decorations down for me this year. I guess last year when I got pinned under your motorcycle or when I fell off the ladder and tore my rotator cuff caused our friends to keep an extra eye on me. You'd be happy to know that I gave our old tree to Amber. I was frustrated with the lights. Not like you would help me put up the lights. You would just laugh at me. You can't laugh at me anymore about that at least.I bought a pre-light tree. It's not as big as our old one but it's still nice. I'm sure I still give you a ton of other reasons to laugh and make fun of me. I miss you babe so much. Well sweetie keep an eye on us and keep showing us signs. We need to know that you'll always be here with us.
Love you. CHEWY forever
You are my new angel.
Hi Sweetheart. I finally did it. I took the kids to Hawaii like you promised them. I know you know how hard that was for me. I am glad I came. It's been hard but also wonderful to remember all the great times we had here. Whenever I tell the kids a story I keep calling you Whitey. Somethings are hard to change. I'm sorry I didn't log on to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. You know I thought about you all day like I do everyday. I remember the last Thansgiving we spent in Hawaii. When we cooked at the apartment in Waikiki. How many of our friends did we have over? Atleast 50 if not more. I was so afraid we would run out of food. We didn't. Remember how you went for a ride that morning on the motorcycle and came back with a huge plant for me in your magic backpack. Or how we went to 7-11 for gravy and I ended up making up plates of food to feed the homeless.Youwere so embarressed that your friends kept making fun of you. I think it was hard for you because you were at the blunt of the jokes and not the one dishing it out. Remember the year Chachi and Kerry made Thansgiving dinner at Kerry's. Chachi burnt the turkey and we all ended up having a Wild Turkey liquid dinner, except for me who got drunk off of my chocolate truffle dessert. I put way too much alcohol in the recipe by mistake. I remember that night on the way home you wanted to go swimming at Ewa Beach. We had no suits or towels but you didn't care. I remember all the fun times we had in Hawaii. I showed the kids where I first told you that I love you. In a way I was mad that you didn't say it back. We both knew that you did, you just wouldn't say it. I told the kids that later that night while I was out with my friends you went to my apartment and put the dalmation stuffed animal through my window. It said I love you on it. How you wrote on the back C.H. + E.W. but the way you wrote it looked like you were telling me the dog chewed the heart. That is how we, you and me became chewy. I had to explain to the kids that so when they are older and read our love letters we sent back and forth while you were away, they'd understand what chewy forever means. Well honey the animals are getting hungry, I love you so much Eric. I am so lucky to have had you in my life. That you loved me too.
Mrs. White~ Although it has been over 3 years since I last signed this guest book, I wanted you to know your husband and family have not been forgotten. You are an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING woman. The dedication and love you have continued to express to your late husband is not only heartwarming, but heartbreaking as well. There should be no doubt in Eric's mind that he is loved and missed tremendously. Your children are so very lucky to have such a strong and wonderful mother to take care of them and to keep their father's memory so alive. Please know that you and your children are in the thoughts and prayers of many, mine included. God bless you all.
Happy Halloween honey. I wish you were here to take the kids trick or treating. We love and miss you Eric.
We spent a few days with your cousin, his family and your god parents. Sam still gives me a hard time. I guess some things never change. He took my car keys so I couldn't leave. I'm glad that we stayed over. Of course we were talking about you. I find so much comfort talking about you, us and our memories. There are so many funny stories. It made me realize how truely lucky I was that you chose me to share your life with. They were reminising about how far I've come since the first time I was exposed to the Cowboy way until now. I still have so much to learn. Next month we were invited to the ranch for a good ole fashion branding. I'll try my best not to embarrass you. I promise I'll be on my best behavoir. On our way home from the ranch I stopped to see this incredibly long snake slithering across the road. It was so long. I know if you were there you would have pick it up and chased me with it. Remember the time we were out in the 6 wheeler and you chased the Hilo monster. It even hissed at you. Eric I miss you so much. I don't know why but every time I go up north I get so sad. I feel you with us but its almost like I can feel your sadness too. You know some days I think I'm doing ok. It's like three steps forward and two steps back. Other days I can't imagine another year passing without you. I have to believe that you are watching over us. I love you Eric so much. Until we can be together again...
Colleen I know this book is for Eric however I did not know him but I do know you so this is for you. You are an amazing woman, your speech gives us all a little more strength to go on everyday, triumph over tradgedy. You held my son at Camp Paz and I will always thank you for that. Know that you have support and we will help you everyday taking those stepping stones.
Hi honey. I'm sorry it's been so long since I wrote to you. You have given us so many signs lately that I haven't had the need to come on here. I'm writing for a little bit of help from "above". Yep I'm asking for your help again. Tomorrow I have to give a speech about us and how your death has impacted us. The kicker is I only have about 5 minutes to talk. I could talk about you Eric for hours. Please be there with me tomorrow to get me through that speech. I know you would've loved to speak at something like that. I prefer to just blend in.
I know you used to tell me that I was your better half and that I completed you. I think the opposite was true. You were definetely my better half and you completed me. These past three years I have been so lost without you. I put on my mask that everyone wants to see and I go on. You know what Eric, somedays I don't want to wear that mask and keep pretending that life is ok. It isn't.You made everything all better. You had this special way to do everything. You brought the fun element and humor into everything that you did. I miss you so much babe. I know you know that though. I just wanted to tell you again.
I will love you forever.
YEAH, WE JUST LOST ANOTHER ONE. YOU KNOW, WHILE I WAS AT THE SCENE, I FELT THIS EMPTYNESS ALL OVER AGAIN, LIKE WHEN I SAW YOU ON THAT TABLE THAT NIGHT. I'M MISSING YOU MORE AND MORE. GIVE GOD A HUG FOR ME
Eric-- I have been blessed to meet your wife and children. They truely miss you and loved you dearly. You have an amazing wife who doesn't give herself NEARLY enough credit.
My prayers are with your family may you find comfort in knowing he will be remembered. Those who choose to be police officers and put their life on the line for others are truly special people
It has been a short three years since you've been gone. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of you, but I am sure that you know that. Thank you for keeping us strong and serving us from above. Love you and miss you Eric.
Hi honey. I went to the cemetary yesterday. I know why the kids don't like going there. I don't either. You don't belong there you belong here on Earth with us. I noticed that Chico stopped by to see you. He left you a few patches. I took one so when the one thats there gets weathered I'll replace it with the other one he left. You have such wonderful friends. I'm very thankful for that. After the cemetary I don't know why but I went to the appartment complex. I stood outside of 267 for the longest time. I don't know what I was doing. I guess I wanted it not to be real. That it was just a bad dream. It wasn't. It was real. We went to Hooters last night to celebrate your life. Not to focus how you died but how you lived. What better place to go than your favorite restaurant. Hooters. Hooters makes you happy, happy , happy hooters. It just wasn't the same without you. I remember we went to Hooters on your actual 30th birthday because thats where you wanted to go. I still wish you let me tell them that it was your birthday. I remember how you threatened me with bodily harm if I breathed a word to them about it. Roberto told us about the day you two stopped there after court and you got 50% off your meal because you still had your badge and gun on your side. I remember how excited you were to learn that you would get such a big discount if you only put your badge on your hip. I could see the wheels turning in your head. Tonight Robert made us dinner and a few of your friends came over to eat. It made me sad to have everyone here and not you. You should be here with us Eric. I'm angry babe. Its been three years and you're not coming back. I want you back Eric so bad. I want to laugh so hard my face hurts. I want to hear you call me poopie pants and for you to tell me to go change my diaper. I want you to play with all the instruments in the doctors office and when something doesn't stop beeping you blame me. I want to feel your strong arms around me so I can feel safe and know everything is going to be ok. When both the kids have practise for their sports in two different areas. I want to count on you to be there for one of them, but I can't. You can't and that makes me mad. I want you to come home. I miss you Eric so much.
I didn't forget yesterday, I just wanted the day to be over. Miss you more than ever. I'm realizing more and more everday that you were a true friend. Not only in the department but outside as well. You knew exactly what to say when things weren't going well, and I miss that. Just wish you were still here.
Semper Fi Brother, you are not forgotten.
Another year has passed. Just wanted you to know that we think and talk of you often. We know that you are still watching out for us. Dropping us your little hints now and then, just when we need them. Saw Colleen, L & C recently. The kids are growing up. They are beautiful ( yes, C, too). C looks just like you. Walks with purpose and has that little gleam in his eyes of mischief. Wonder where he got that. L is such a little lady. Colleen is such a good mother. You picked a good one there, honey. We love you and miss you more than words can say. Keep us safe, Eric, we all still need you.
Hey honey. Me and the kids miss you so much. Thank you for sending Sal and his family to us this week and especially today. As well as Martins kids. You knew that today was going to be a hard day for me. Even now you still have a hand in taking care of me. Thank you sweetheart. I love you. With everyone around today we were so busy it made the day go by quickly. I only looked at my watch about a dozen times rather than constantly like I did the past two years. I don't know why we went all the way into Scottsdale today but we had a great time. C and I had an opportunity to be alone for a few minutes. C was reminising about all the times we went there with you. About all of the things he remembered doing with you. I told C that one of my favorite pictures of you two was taken at that park. He knew exactly what photo I was talking about. I could still close my eyes and picture you ever so carefully fixing the kids choo choo hats before the train was going to take off. How Id make all of you smile over and over for pictures, until none of you smiled anymore. I miss you babe so much. Life now is as good as it can be without you. It would just be so much better with you here. Thank you Eric for blessing us in so many ways. I am so sorry for telling you, you didn't love us because you died and left. You show us everyday in little ways how much you did and still do love us. I just wish you didn't walk out that door that Saturday afternoon. I still hear your voice in my head the last noise you made to L right as you were leaving. How I wish you stayed home. I often blame myself for not asking you to stay home that night. Anything to bring you back. Oh how I would have changed places with you if I could. I love you Eric and I always will.
Eric, Please take care of my brother officer Jonathan Stuart who passed away saturday. I know he cried so much at yours and wolfes funeral, and he knew you guys well. Now you guys are together. Take care of him, and tell him i love him.
Officer Stuart/ Brother
WENT TO SEE YOU THIS MORNING. IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT'S CLOSE TO 3 YEARS AGO THAT WE LOST YOU. I MISS TALKING TO YOU ABOUT THE BS WE GO THROUGH AT WORK. WISH YOU WERE STILL HERE. ALWAYS KNOW THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.. LUV YA
Hey sweetheart. I just got back from Officer George Cortez's wake. Another officer killed in the kine of duty. I was hoping that you and Jason would be the last officers killed in Phoenix. I was wrong. Do other people realize how devasting death is to family and friends left behind? Why do these bad people do this? Why? How would those bad people feel if they were in our shoes? Our lives will never be the same. EVER! I look at the kids. They have grown so much and I think of all the things and events that you weren't here for. I wonder when L gets older will she chose an older man because she was lacking a father figure? Who will walk L down the aisle when she meets the one? Who should be helping his children learn how to ride bikes without training wheels and throw the football around with his son? That was suppose to be you Eric. You were the best dad, that I ever knew. I used to watch you with the kids and say to myself how truely lucky I was that you were the man I married. The kids had the best dad ever. It wasn't long enough for me. I love you Eric and I always will. Remember chewy forever!
As the wife of a Phoenix officer my heart broke for you the day you lost your husband. You received the news none of us want to get - your life changes forever.
My immediate thought upon hearing the news of an Officer's death has always been "how will the family go on?", "how do you go on?". I guess the answer is you do because you have to and that is what your loved one would want.
I did not know the guest books stayed active after a certain time. I happened upon this by accident. I have to admit that I did read some of your posts then stopped as it felt like an invasion of your privacy.
Please know that you, your children and your husband have never been forgotten.
Those of us that pray for our spouse's safety on a daily basis also pray for those who have suddenly, tragically lost their loved ones in the line of duty.
I'm sure the events of the past week brings back an overwhelming flood of emotion. Hopefully, you will feel the support of those of us who are not only thinking about and praying for Officer Cortez's family but of you and your family.
I hope your children's eyes sparkle again and that you continue to find comfort in the wonderful memories, stories and pictures of your love.
I, too was searching on the internet for a long lost friend and somehow this guestbook popped up in the search. I'm not sure why. I've read each entry, and Ken Reynolds name doesn't seem to be in it. However, I did find one thing. I found an appreciation of my family and friends. How blessed you were to have such a true love! Your entries are blessing people you've never even met. I pray that God will heal your and your children's hearts and grant you peace.
God's blessing on you sweet lady!
Happy Birthday, Eric! I can't wait to see Colleen and the kids today to celebrate your b-day. I miss you and think of you often. As per my usual request to you, keep a close eye on the fam. Love you.
Happy anniversary to both of you.
Happy Anniversary honey. It would have been 11 years. I remember the last anniversary we spent together, we were lying in bed and you said I can't believe we have been together this long. You said it feels like yesterday when we were married. Then you started stumbling over what you said because you were worried that I would take what you said the wrong way. I wanted us to grow old together babe. Wasn't that what we talked about? That was the plan. Why did you have to change that? I really miss you Eric. The way you made the house smell with grass clippings, the way you snore louder than the dog, the way you would race the kids to the corner or the way you'd drive the kids up and down the street on the lawnmower, doing donuts on the front lawn, the dead pigeons you'd put on my windshield, the flowers you'd get me just because, the way I knew you were getting up for the day or going back to sleep, the way you'd hit the house backing up the trailer because you refuse to hang up w Roberto, the way your smile would light up a room, the way you'd make me laugh so hard my cheeks would hurt, the way you would support me in whatever crazy idea I'd have, the way I felt so safe when you'd wrap your arms around me, just the way you loved me and the kids. Eric honey I miss every little about you. (even your flat feet and the freckle on your ear that made it look like it was pierced.)
Happy Anniversary my love. I love you AAAAALLLLLLLOOOOOTTTTTTT!
Your entries have touched my heart. I realize how truly blessed I am with everything. I can't even imagine going through what you are. You don't know me, but Colleen....because of you - you are my new hero.
Hi Eric. Happy Fourth of July. I remember our last fourth together. L was in a the dance thing at the stadium. You couldn't get the night off but your sergeant let you come in late. You wore your uniform. I loved looking at you when you were in uniform. You gave me butterflies. People kept coming up to you giving you water, and free stuff. L was so happy that you were there she wasn't even dancing just smiling and waving at daddy. It saddens me that I have never seen her light up the way she would light up when she saw you. Remember when you said to me, "hey babe do you want some water I can hook you up?" You were teasing me because everyone was catering to you. I am grateful for the picture I took of you and the kids that day. I only wish I was in it too instead of always the one behind the camera. We recently met someone on the plane on our way home. C was so proud of that picture he made me turn on my phone to show the people your special photo. Of course the stewardess was walking by and I got in trouble for having my phone on. We love you Eric.
Hey sweetheart. It's been awhile since I wrote to you. It's not that I haven't thought of you. You know that I think of you all the time. I've been stuck in my grief for awhile. I finally found a great therapist. She has helped me so much. She says its ok to start living again. You know I'm hardheaded about that. You always wanted me to be happy. The kids remember your quote verbadum. "If moms happy the house is happy." I want to thank you for taking care of the mouse problem. I also want to thank ypu for helping me find those keys I lost. My mom kept saying that I just needed to change the batteries in the smoke detector. She couldn't tell me why the smoke detector didn't beep before I asked for help and it stopped beeping right after I found the keys. I know you are probably chuckling when other people call me crazy or loopie. The other day I actually saw a license plate that said fruitloop. When I saw it it made me smile. I'll always be your fruitloop. I love and miss you Eric. I know you are still around, I have to believe that. I can't imagine you not seeing the kids grow up. I know you would be beaming saying, "Yep those are my kids, aren't they great?" I know you would be so proud of them. I know I am.
I was new to the department when Officer White and Officer Wolfe sacrificed their lives...but I'll never forget that day I came into briefing and was told that there was a terrible incident in squaw peak. Although I did not know Eric or Jason personally, I've heard tremendous stories of their courage and character. Though years have passed and we're reminded that life is short; it is not without Eric and Jason's strength and devotion that we're able to move through life with purpose. Their memory is life lasting...their courage is to be envied...their sacrifice is ultimate! It is too often that we do take our loved ones for granted but, it is never without meaning when they leave us!
Colleen and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you...may you always feel the love and support of your friends and family.
Colleen, I was looking for someone I knew today, and came across this guest book; your words saddened me greatly. It IS far too often that we take what we have for granted, and I wanted to let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Although I did not know Eric, his loss is felt, and I thank you for your words to help remind me.
Hi babe. I just logged on the computer to check my emails. I noticed that there were articles on the soldiers fighting for our freedom in Iraq. I remember after 9-11 how you wanted to go over there and fight for us. I remember you telling me if it wasn't for the kids and I you would be there. You said you just couldn't do that now because it was just too dangerous. You had too much to lose. "Who was going to take care of us if you were killed?" you said. I was reading these articles and I was heart broken to learn that many soldiers make it back home alive but soon after take their own lives because of the all they endured in war. It is sad to me that everyone goes through their routines everyday and not giving thoughts to other peoples pain. I want to help people honey. Whenever I think of how I can help someone else I get overwhelmed with how. Today was Mother's Day and I am so sorry I let you down. It seems that I'm doing that alot. I forgot to send my mom and your mom anything. Not even a card. I know if you were here you wouldn't have let me forget. I wanted to tell your mom how thankful I am that she raised an incredible son. Eric, honey I know you are around us, you might not always let us know you are there but I know you are.I'm asking for your help. Please give me the nudge I need to get my head out of my butt from time to time. I used to call it slapping the reality into me. You were great at putting me in my place. Of course in your wonderful Eric way. I think I'm doing better with the grass At least it's green this summer. Eric I love you very much. Thank you for loving me and for making me a better person. I still think I need lot of your help inthat area though. I miss you sweet heart. If you could send down some divine intervention, could you please get rid of the mouse for me?
Your journey was not in vain, warrior. Godspeed.
Hi honey. Did you get the balloon your big guy sent you today? His counselor thought it would be a good idea. He was so happy watching it climb up into the sky, hoping that it would reach to you then all of a sudden it was gone. I know he wanted to write you so much more. Sometimes he gets embarrassed because he can't spell all the words he wants to write to you. He's afraid to ask for help. I wonder who he takes after there. Your presence was definetely missed this weekend. Nothing is the same without you. Life is just not as fun or entertaining. If you can babe you really need to visit the kids more in their dreams. They have these deep sad eyes, their sparkle is gone. Come and play with them in their dreams. They miss you almost as much as I do and that's aaaaallllooootttt!You always said you'd be there if we need you. Well honey we always will.
Happy Easter, Eric. You are missed!
You and your children are always in my thoughts.
We missed you yesterday more... you know why. I sent balloons from you I know if you could you would have sent them yourself. I also bought flowers. They weren't as nice as the ones you used to pick out. You were so good at that. I hope we feel your presence this weekend. We love you so much.
Hi babe. I've been missing you alot, not like its any different than any other time. I've just been crying alot more lately. I know you hated to be around me when I was "emotional". I think you just thought it was "that time" again. Nope babe not this time. Just longing to be with you. Missing you wrap your arms around me, making me feel loved and protected. You know Eric some days I feel like I'm progressing through this thing called grief. I take one step forward and then take ten steps back. If I start twitching you'd think I was doing my old dance moves. I miss you teasing me about how bad I dance. And I thought i was pretty good. I wonder what your doing up there in heaven. I want to think your up there watching us. You know Easter is coming up. I remember the year you went to Vegas to meet up with your buddies from the Marines. You were looking forward to that trip for so long. How long did you stay away from us a day and a half. You left so quickly you left half your stuff there. Roberto had to send it back to you. I'm sorry that i lost that bracelet you gave me. I was so sad. I looked everywhere for it. I love you and miss you so much. I love you more....
Just want you to know you are not forgotten
I miss you man. I miss 735I.
Dearest Eric and Family!
Just wanted to put the word out that I just became certified in Law Enforcement Fitness, and met some wonderful police officers along the way. I got asked to join the POLICE UNITY BIKE RIDE for NLEOMF during police week, and will be riding in honor of Eric!! Love with all my heart!
Andrea White xoxo
Happy Valentine's Day Sweetheart. We love and miss you so much.
Hey Babe. It's been awhile since I wrote in here. It saddens me that over time fewer and fewer people write to you. I know I have a hard time writing in here because we're such private people. I used to just talk to you. I felt like you were right there across the room, or lying right next to me. I don't feel your presence around anymore. Our home feels so empty. It's definetely from a lack of your pictures. You would be so mad at me. I have them everywhere. I even blew up a few that are poster sized. I actually had a guy from the insurance company ask me if you were my son. Do I look that old? I just told him your my husband and you really love yourself. The man said, " Oh, one of those types." I knew you would have chuckled at that. Your daughter asked me yesterday why I don't have any pictures of her up. I told her there are alot of pictures of her. All of those include you as well. She wants to see some recent pictures of her up. If I can figure out how to transpose your picture in there then I'll put new ones up. Eric I know what you said to me about touching power tools. For Christmas I bought myself a cordless drill. I know you have one. I just can't make heads or tails out of your stuff in the garage. (And you complained about my filing system). Well I actually hung up candle holders all by myself. I even leveled it. I know! Do you know what the best part was? I didn't put anymore holes in the wall other than what was required. I still haven't patched the other holes I made over the years, and there are a ton of those. Remember when I caused that fire in the garage. When I tried to cut wood with a sander. I was moving stuff around and I can't believe that you kept that piece of wood. All those years. The fire was right after we moved in to the house. That was a long time. Out of all the wood we've used and gotten rid of throughout the years, I was amazed that you kept that piece. Little things that I come across are little reminders of how blessed I was to have had you in my life. Like the cobble stone by the front door. Who the hell keeps a cobblestone by the front door? That stone you had to have. Damn you walked all over New York City carrying that thing. But you had to bring back a piece of the big apple. I can't believe airport security didn't stop you. Or the sign from Dukes. The elephant feet from Elephant Bar. I hope if Chachi ever gets rid of the church sign he'll give it to me or let me buy it from him. Our memories. I'm fortunate that you lived life to the fulliest. The kids say if there was fun to be had my daddy was going to find it. You would make me laugh so hard my face would hurt. When I would plead with you to stop you would just make me laugh more. I can still visualize you re-enacting the night you went to McDuffy's with the guys. Smmedium. When you told me the story your eyes gleemed and your dimples were showing.
I just wished you kept your promise of growing old together. Remember you said you were still going to love me even when my nose falls off from sun exposure. You know I absolutely love hearing Eric stories. I was talking with your brother today. I was saying that you must have had an incredible life review. You touched so many people in your short life. You changed people for the better and you didn't even know it. Eric I miss you so much. We all do. Please don't forget us. We will NEVER forget you.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, and I truly miss you more and more. I felt so empty last Monday, with no energy whatsoever, but then I received a text from Colleen (your phone) and it kinda helped. You were my only true and loyal friend and I miss that. I will forever keep You,Colleen and the kids in my heart. Luv Ya =)
Hey baby. I miss you every minute of every day. When you died my heart was shattered. Some days the pain of losing you is so intense. I know you are watching down on us. You know I make alot of mistakes and fall on my face often. Please know that I'm doing the best I can for right now. Help guide me to do what's best. You always were and forever be my better half. I'm trying to be more positive lately, which as you know is difficult for me. I am trying though. Give me credit for trying. My biggest fear is that people will forget you Eric. As these past few days have been difficult for me, (even more than usual), I found comfort with our friends, our family, your friends and co-workers who called me. When they called they shared their stories with me. Some I've heard and some I didn't. There are so many stories. Boy do I love hearing Whitey stories. People haven't forgotten about you bae. Those who knew you never will. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for picking me. Eric you really did complete me. You made me whole. Since your death I have felt so lost. What gets me through each day is knowing that one day I will be with you again. For now my journey has to be traveled alone ( which I do not like at all). I want to kick and scream, through a tantrum and get my life back the way it was before August 28, 2004. I know right now we have to be apart but Eric, you are my light at the end of the tunnel. You would tell me that true loves never dies. That we will be together for eternity. I'm holding you to that sweetie. I miss you so, so, so much. I love you with all of my heart.
"IN VALOR THERE IS HOPE!" From the memorial wall in D.C.
I miss you cousin, and think about you each and every day that I get on the road for work. I am working on a POLICE FITNESS AND INJURY RISK ASSESSMENT PROGRAM right now and know that you are watching over and giving input. I love you and miss you, please keep all of us safe! xoxo Andrea White
We will never forget this day. Our thoughts and love are always with you. We are always there for you and your family. Love Always,
Lynda, Joe, Mitch and Kathi Sanabria
It's been 2 years since you left us and you are still always thought of. Please keep watch over your family and loved ones, especially your wife and children. We all miss you so much!
I miss you brother! I will always remember you.
Eric, it has been two short years since you were taken from us and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about you. I know that you are keeping a watch from above and I thank you. I miss you and love you very much.
Eric - It's amazing to me to think the second anniversary of that horrible day has come to pass. At the same time, I realize you are finding ways to let the family know you are still watching over us. I opened up a new middle school just this week, and as I was going through some teacher training, my building principal let us know who our permanent police officer in the building would be: Officer Whyte. I teared up instantly, and I can't help but think that you may have had something to do with that (even if one letter is wrong). I miss and love you.
Happy birthday little brother, I love and miss you.
A day doesn't go by when you are not thought of. You are sadly missed. You are loved and very much missed.
Eric - remember when we used to kid around about the people that would get promoted during your visits to the jail. Now I'm one of them. I know what you would say "wow, they just promote anyone now a days." I know that you would give me a smack on my shoulder just the way they would in the Marine Corps - I miss you buddy. Semper Fi, Sgt. Garza
I can't believe you and Jason were taken from us a year and a half ago. In some cases it seems like it has been much longer than that and in other cases like it was just yesterday. Please continue to watch over your family and loved one. We miss you.
Eric...you are still in our thoughts every day as you will always be. Please continue to help your family through.
Happy Thanksgiving, Eric.
14 months it's been since you were taken away from all of us and we still miss you as much now as we did the day it happened. Please continue to protect your family and loves ones. You and your family are in my thoughts always.
At times I wonder why it was that you were taken from us one year ago, but then I realize that you were needed for a bigger cause above. I will never forget the times that we set off fireworks in the front yard and one came right at your head and we all hit the deck. Or of how proud I was in High School and your friend would call me "Whitey's cousin" and I was more proud of that than being my own person. I will always look for signs from you that you are there for all of us. Do me a favor....Keep an eye on Jonathan Walsh he's up there with you, I work with some of his friends and as luck would have it your name is memoralized right next to his on the Police memorial wall!! Love ALWAYS!!! XOXO-Andrea W
Semper Fi Brother, you are missed a great deal!
As I sit here and think of the right words to say, I wish with all my heart that I didn't have a reason to be writing anything. It seems impossible that a year has gone by, when it seems like yesterday. We all got together today at Chad's house, and it comforts me to know that at one point you were there. I don't know..there is nothing to describe the pain that we all feel. Keep a good watch over Colleen and the kids, and one day we will all see each other again. I miss you and think of you often.
Dear Colleen & kids,
Today is a day that brings great sorrow to my heart. I look at Eric's picture on the mantel, the vigil candle, the horseshoe centerpiece from the Mounted Posse fundraiser and the dried roses from the funeral and still am unable to understand the purpose of this tragedy. But know that not a day goes by that I do not pray for you and our family to survive and find the peace we will need to live on. I thank God that Eric brought you to our family, as well as those angels you have at home with you. May you always know that I am just a phone call away. Love to you all.
Eric, it has been a year since you were taken from us. There has not been a day that has gone by that I didn't wish you were still here, and the one thing that keeps me sain is knowing that you are above taking care and protecting us. You are my hero. Missing and loving you, Andrea
How fast it seems the year has gone. You are still in our thoughts. To Eric's Family, I ask God to continue to give you comfort and know that he is truly in a better place. Thank you Eric for your years of protection
Today marks one year since you were taken from your friends and family, all those who love you so much. You are remembered today just as much as you have been every day since that horrible night of August 28, 2004. We will all see you again and please continue to help keep your fellow officers safe.
You are in all of our thoughts, too. I know Eric is right there with you all every minute of every day.
Eric, its been a year since we all lost you. not a day goes by that i dont think of you and wish that we could all wake up from this nightmare. As kids we used to play in the creek,and in the woods behind our house. these places i still feel close to you. I miss you so much. I cannot thank you enough for your gifts to me. Your strength and courage will always be my inspiration. till we meet again my little brother I love you , Chad
You are missed terribly every day.
Keep watch over your loved ones, as
I know you will.
Colleen & kids,
My heart and prayers go out to you
and the children. This past year has changed all our lives--remember that he is with you every day, watching, guiding, loving you...forever. We all miss him and will NEVER forget....his passion was to be the best officer he could, and HE WAS JUST THAT. Now his memory is helping fellow officers. Never forget, Colleen
"he has come home to you" and his
spirit will be there ALWAYS.
All my love and prayers,
Another month has come and gone without you and Jason. The months seem to take so much longer to go by than they did when we still had you with us. You are missed very much, Eric.
Colleen and children,
You are in my thoughts every day and I can't imagine what you are all going through. I love you all.
Hi Honey. I miss you as well as everyone who knows you. Life just isn't the same without you here. I know we will be together again one day. You once wrote me, " A day without you is a day I don't want to be here." That is exactly how I feel, a day without you is a day I don't want. I know right now my place is here on earth taking care of our angels. I'm doing my best, even though I know you would not be too happy with some of the choices I've made. Like I said I'm doing the best I can without you. It isn't easy. When I see you again I want you to be proud of me. I don't want you to say, " what the hell were you thinking lady." You have always been there to lift me up when I've been down. My therapist says that you pump up my flat tire. I still need you so much please don't ever leave us. I've felt your presence today. It was nice to know we spent the day as a family again in whatever way we can. Lately I've haven't felt you around as much. I miss the signs that you would give me. Maybe you are still giving me signs but I don't get them like I used to. I need you to give me signs. The kids like the signs too. They feel as if you are still with us. I know you are busy and you have things to do in heaven. Just when you have a chance, we would really appreciate them. If you can please give me more dream visits as well. I love to see your beautiful face. I like to feel your big arms around me and to kiss your lips. If you can and I know I've been asking for alot but can you make me laugh. Remember how much you would make me laugh until my face hurt from laughing so hard. I could really use one of those laughs honey. I want to thank you for watching out for us and taking care of "things" for us. I appreciate all of the divine intervention and also the message on the cell phone the other day. Of course it brought me to tears. I don't know how you did it but you still have a way of making important days special even from heaven. Is this you making the smoke alarms beep while I'm typing this?
Thank you for everything sweetheart. Thank you for picking me.
I Love you.
I never had the pleasure of meeting two wonderful officers. You gave your lives for people like me, but every time I see a police car go by or an officer in uniform I thank God for people like you. I will never forget either one. Thanks from my heart.
Happy 4th of July, Eric.
You are missed.
I know you and Jason have been watching over us every minute since you had to leave us 10 months ago. You are thought of and missed every day and always will be. I miss you.
Nine months, Eric, that we have been without you and Jason. We will all be together again as we were before you guys were taken from us. We all love you and miss you.
This entry is in observance of the memorial for ALL fallen officers. In 2004 153 officers died in the line of duty. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Eric.
Eric, the 28th is the two year anniversay of my mothers death. Keep an eye on her and thank you for EVERYTHING you have done for me. I will NEVER forget.
The week has come where you are going to be honored for the wonderful person you were. Let your family know you are right by their sides during this.
Also please welcome Dave and let him know he is loved and missed just as you are.
hey Whitey- miss ya buddy.
Only one more month has passed, yet it seems like years without you and Jason. Everyone miss you tons. We will all be together again but until then, we will all be down here missing you every day.
Eric, a day,an hour, a minute, a second doesn't pass that you are not on my mind. I am so lucky to have had you in my life. I just wish it wasn't for such a short time. Those who knew you Eric are the lucky ones. I feel bad for those people who never had the chance to know you. I know I am a better person because you touched my life. I am very proud of you.
Dearest Eric....I hope you a Jason
are being good boys up there with the angels...it's Nana--we all miss
you guys terribly, but we also know that you were needed for a higher
purpose...thank you! Ours prayers are with you both...watch over us all and remember--WE WILL NEVER FORGET--we love you. NANA
Today is 7 months that we have been without you. You will never be forgotten for your selflessness. Thank you for everything you did.
It's me again, just a citizen who did not know you personally but changed my life forever. When I hear of our police in a potentially volatile situation I've learned to hit my knees & pray. Recently a citizen who called 911 gave info that the perp was armed & would kill if approached. This is so important for us citizens to do; give ANY info up front for the safety of our 'Street Angels'. With this I pray that more of us would appreciate all of you for the protection that your unselfishness provides. Thanks again for what you have done for your community. Thinking of your family with the loss that they have to face daily & pray that they are comforted daily by the complete love from our Lord & Savior. Respectfully C. Pamer
Today will mark the long seven months since that moment last August when the Lord made the decision to take you and Jason.
I know the two of you are up there watching over all of us, and for that we are most grateful. You have a simply wonderful family here, keep them safe. You are loved and missed by all who knew you. Thank you for the sacrifice you made for all of us.
God bless you.
Your absence reamains and memories will never be forgotten of such a wonderful person that you were. I always looked forward to Art class and playing alot of Euchre on the GAVC bus our Senior year. My thoughts and prayers will always be there for your friends and family. With great memories you will always be a hero to many.
Thinking of you,
Six months have passed, Eric, and it seems like it was just yesterday you and Jason were taken from us. We all still miss you dearly. Your family is always in my thoughts.
Happy Valentine's Day Sweetheart. We love and miss you very much.
I'm a recuite in the Phoenix Police Explorers Post 2906. I went to the vigil and both of the officers funerals to say my goodbyes. I didn't know the officers, but I thought that I should pay my respect to the officers that died trying to serve and protect the City of Phoenix. All my life I wanted to be an officer and now I want to be one even more. I am deeply sorry for what happened to Officer White. We all miss you deeply. May you rest in peace.
Dearest Eric & family and your comrades: Today and for months to
come I realize the grieving process just does not seem to be going fast enough, always on our minds - even people like me who never actually met you. Knowing you are in a much better place is a small bit of comfort & my prayers today are for your familiy & comrades that each month will get easier, but know you are forever in our hearts. My black rememeberence pin is in a visible place to remind me to pray for your family and your comrades. You are a shining reminder of 'Ultimate Service' and you are all remembered & in our prayers.
Eric, you are dearly missed every day. You, Jason and Don continue to watch over your coworkers, please. We love you and your family as much now as we did before the tragic day 4 months ago and are always in our thoughts.
I just ran into Miller today here in San Diego and heard of the terrible news. I was shocked to hear the news and really did not know what to say when I heard. The last time I saw you was when we were all leaving the Marines and lost touch from there. I tried to find you and the guys from the platoon on the internet but it seems I was looking in all the wrong places. I wish we could have all got together again like old times. You will be missed. To Colleen and family, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. Eric was a great guy and will be missed.
Not many people would do what Eric did. For his friends and family, Know that he was a good example for those younger than him. He had a heart of gold. And our prayers are with you in this time of need.
To the family of fallen hero Eric White....My thoughts and prayers are with you...My sincere heartfelt sorrow are with you in your time of need. Unfortuntaly he lost his life in what he loved doing and for that I am truly grateful that there are men and women out there that are truly gifts from GOD.
Rest in peace my fallen brother. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and loved ones.
GOD bless our officers who in courage do what many of us would not have chosen as a career. Prayers of healing to the officers family & their heroric partners. The
night of the vigil I kept my candle
and black ribbon to always keep our

Not long ago in Denver, we lost
one of our dedicated officers. That
day I was on ambulance duty, so we
stood in the back of the church. Only one tissue for the 4 of us!!!
My prayer for you (families, fellow
officers & friends) We wish you peace Just a Community Member

I HAVE NEVER MET THE MAN THAT IS MEMORIALIZED HERE ON THIS PAGE.
I HAVE HOWEVER WATCHED AS TIME AND TIME AGAIN MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHOM WEAR THE BADGE WITH HONOR - MAKE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
WE DO THIS JOB NOT FOR BIG MONEY OR FAME OR GLORY. BUT, BECAUSE THERE IS A BUILT IN PASSION FOR THIS WORK, FOR WHAT HAS TO BE DONE. FOR THIS IS WHAT KEEPS THIS PLACE FROM BECOMING SOMETHING WE DO NOT WANT TO EXPERIENCE.
THANKS FOR YOUR DEDICATED SERVICE OFFICER WHITE!
DAVE WHITLEY, CITY AND COUNTY OF DENVER
I can only wish at the present time to have met this brother officer. My heart goes out to the family of such a great man. He made the ultimate sacrifice for his community, God bless you
I have opened and closed this guest book several times not knowing what to write. After attending your memorial service and seeing all the lives you have touched and what you have done for our country and your community, makes my family all very proud to have had you for a friend.
When I hear the name Eric White, I will have to smile, not only for what you have accomplished in your past few years, but for all the good memories you have given my family. The time you fell out of our barn and broke your arm and never shed a tear, only because girls were around and the time you, Brian and your other grade school friends camped out in the woods behind your home. The next morning you came out of the woods with a big smile and we knew you guys had been up to something, sure enough, smoking corn cobs. Eric, thanks for all the great memories.
To your parents, wife and children, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
May you rest in peace,
A promise was made
To you my dear son
To your family,
Who listens to me,
God the Most High
I’ll be your shelter,
And your guide
No more pain
No need to worry
Though you lay sleep
My dear child
A new life
Is on the other side
Of the door
Seek first the Kingdom
And you will see
Many blessing will be yours
I have my book of those
Who are faithful and true
I’ll remember them all
I’ll certainly remember you
You’ll hear my voice
I’ll call, says John 5:28,29
Those who did good
There will be a resurrection
Eric, you are deeply missed. Our department won't be the same without you. My prayers to your family and friends.

Having also lost our brother Ken Collings a Phoenix Police Officer, killed in the line of duty in 1988,
we understand your tremendous grief. Our prayers are with the family.
I am terribly saddened reading about the loss of Eric. I have a brother-in-law who is a Waterloo Regional Police Officer and a brother and brother-in-law who are RCMP Officers. There is a brotherhood when you are police officers, it doesn't matter where you are from and for that I am jealous. Please know that I salute Eric and I hope that someday you will be beside him again. May you have strength in knowing that we all shed a tear for your loss. Be proud of Eric, and never let go of the memories.

The policeman stood and faced God, which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass. "Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true?" The policeman squared his shoulders and said "No, Lord, I guess I ain't, because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint. I've had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I've been violent, because the streets are awfully tough. But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep. . . though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place here among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear. If you've a place for me here Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, but if you don't. . . I'll understand. There was silence all around the throne where the saints had often trod. As the policeman waited quietly for the judgement of his God. "Step forward now, policeman, you've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets, you've done your time in Hell."
NO WORDS CAN EXPRESS THE SADNESS I FEEL FOR YOUR LOSS. I HOPE THAT IN THIS TIME OF SORROW YOU'LL FIND COMFORT IN YOUR MEMORIES AND IN EACH OTHER.
MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU!
(WIFE OF A GRUNDY COUNTY, IL SHERIFF'S DEPUTY)
My Heart and prayers goe out to you. I am so sorry for your loss.

I will never forget the morning I walked to my car parked in the driveway and as I closed the door, I noticed the American Flag in my front yard.

God Bless you! I believe that fallen officers gather in heaven to watch over those of us that are still on earth.
Ofc. White, you're there with another wonderful officer Tyler Pinchot of Buena Park, California and neither of you should be there this early. I wish we could express to your family how thankful we all are for your service, but deep down, I'm sure that they will know.
Take care Ofc. White and you're now 10-7...
As the brother of a Police Officer I have an idea of the dedication you have to protect & serve. Godspeed Eric. The Police brotherhood WILL take care of your family.
I sincerely regret your loss. No words could ever lessen the sorrow that you feel at this time. My hope is that the moments of joy and sorrow that you have shared with this great man will grow stronger, as the memory of these painful days fade.

I am truly sorry for your loss.
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household world that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It it the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.
Our thoughts and pryers are with you and your family David Taylor MCSO
May you be with the angels forever.Thank you for being our protector. My thoughts and prayers are with your family always.

As the spouses of police officers, we know there is a chance that our husband or wife may not return home, yet we let you go each day with a kiss and prayer. We let them go because we know this is something they are called to do. These men and women are special individuals, who give their heart, soul, and life to our community and receive little in return. There are no words that can comfort you or take away the pain caused by this senseless tragedy. Please remember that Erik has made a difference and he has touched the lives of many. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
God Speed to Heaven Dear Eric and may the heavenly angles watch over your beautiful family here on earth!
Officer White & Officer Wolfe - we will keep you, your family and all other officers in our thoughts & prayers. Thank you for your willingness to protect us all. Though we never met, I know you, I know your spirit and your dedication and that makes me stronger. You are in a better place, rest easy and we will join you in time.
Eric my fallen brother, may you rest in peace. You stood tall on Earth, and now you stand tall in Heaven. Watch over us as we, you're brothers and sisters, continue the fight. May God bless you and your Family.
Officer Wolfe and Officer White - two true American warriors. God bless you for putting your life on the line to save others. While you are in harm's way literally every day, it takes a truly special person to run towards the sound of the gunfire and not away from it.
May God watch over you and your families and know that we will carry on with you in our hearts and minds every day. Rest well my brother, you have served us all well.
Once again we in law enforcement mourn a tragic loss. Go with God and job well done.
It is with heartfelt saddness that I am writing to say good-bye to Eric. I met Eric when I first moved to Arizona and he and his wife Colleen immediately welcomed my mom and I to the Valley. At that time Eric was working with my brother. Eric has always cared about other people and he is a true hero. May angels forever surround his wife and children with peace.
My son introduced me to Eric as a fellow officer. I can only say he is a hell of a man whom one can always remember for his passion and that he was great individual.
May God bless him and his family.
My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Eric.
We are so sorry about your loss we are keeping you in our prayers and our thoughts. God Bless you.

So let it never be said that these souls Were taken away
We have them with us in every breath And in our hearts that beat each day

Thank you for their memories you've given us so dear
You've given each and every one us a way to keep them near.

To the wife and children of Eric White "Whitey":
I do not know who you are or your names but I do know the man and person your husband was. I served with Eric in the United States Marine Corps for two years. We had our own little group of people that I'm sure you've heard much about. I just wanted to tell you that Eric will be missed and our thoughts and prayers are with you. He was always the one to crack a joke on someone if they did something stupid. He had the ability to make people smile and laugh. Just thinking of some of the things he did still make me laugh. He and Chach Chi were unseperable. I now also have three children of my own and you guys will be in our prayers. Whitey will be missed
Sincerely, The Lawson Family
My hearts and prayers are with you!! God Bless and Take Care!!!
On behalf of my entire family we want to thank Officer White for his dedication and sacrifice. We will pray that God gives his family strength and comfort in this time a great grief. We understand your pain since we lost my brother a Michigan Police Officer in 1994. Draw courage from the community support and know they were doing the job they loved.
May God grant you peace.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the friends and family. No greater sacrifice than to give up one's life in the line of duty. Thanks to this fallen hero. From the mother of a newly sworn Phoenix police officer. Yvonne Speer
The Coal City Police Department wishes to extend our deepest condolences to the entire White family. May you all be blessed with support and guidance to help you through this difficult period.

May god be with you and your family.
Our deepest sympathy to Eric's family and friends. We were so very sorry to hear of the terrible tragedy. What a brave man he was and how proud of him you must be. Our son, Brian, went to high school with Eric and Matt coached him in baseball. He was a great guy and everyone enjoyed being around him. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
Matt & Tami Finn
Whenever an officer is hurt badly or dies my heart weeps. I cry for the pain your family and fellow officers will endure because of this senseless act. You were 'only doing your job', and I find that difficult to accept. The consequences of 'just being a cop' are sometimes too high a price to pay... but you did it - and you did it with "Pride, Integrity and Guts". I know this because we are all brothers in law enforcement.
May God provide you, as well as your family, with peace.
I just wanted to let the family of Eric White to know that my church Christ Life Church said a prayer last night for the two fallen Police Men. We wanted to thank them for all that they have done for our community, At this time Myself and the church want to wish the family the best and to let them know that now they have two angels looking over them always. God bless you in your time of need, We as a community are so very thankful. We love you and you will be missed forever.
My Lord bless you, I am so sad about this tragedy, Officer Eric White is a Hero for all of us, God bless him and his family.
There's a time to smile, there's a time to cry; there's a time to sow, there's a time to reap; there's a time to live, there's a time to die, don't ask why instead give thanks to the Father above who knows when we're needed up above. Be thankful for the years Eric White shared with all whom he loved and all who loved him. Let all who wish to see him once again live a life pleasing to the Lord.
We were honored to have Eric as a part of our lives. He was a special person and will be terribly missed. Eric and his family were a part of every one of my favorite childhood memories. We can rest assured that he made the world a better place in the short time he was with us.
With love and prayers,
Rick and Bobbi
Thank you for giving your life so our streets may be safe. From a retired policeman's daughter.
To the White Family: My deepest sympathy goes out to you for your loss.
A hero is one of extreme admiration and devotion. It is ironic that you had just that for humanity. You did not just change my life, you changed me. God bless you and your loved ones. Thank you God for heros.
Eric, your faithfulness to duty was noble, courageous and exemplary. Thank you for facing the fray. May your wife and children always be proud of you and know you did your best. Comfort and blessings on them.
Thank you and God Bless your family for all you have given us!
Eric, words cannot express the loss that I feel. To know that you gave your life for a cause that you deeply believed in brings some peace. To give your self without hesitation truly shows what a hero is. with time the pain of your absence will lessen, but the absence will always remain. the loss of a brother is a pain that is is soul shattering, but to know that you died surrounded by your other brothers and sisters eases my pain.Also to the people of Phoenix and all of Arizona your generosity, compassion, and respect that you have shown myself and my family will always be remembered as the greatest kindness that I have ever seen, and for that, thank you seems so inappropriate.lastly to Eric you are not only my brother, but also my hero. love always Chad
God bless you for your good heart and dedication. You and your family are in our prayers.
Please accept my condolences for your loss, and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

GOD BLESS YOU. My prayers are with your family,friends and fellow officers. You gave all for your community and I just want your family know that I am so sorry for there loss.

To the family of Eric White:
We just wanted to express our sympathy for your loss. Officer White responded to our home a few months ago. He was very compassionate to our 4 young children in a very scary situation. Our family hurts knowing that this brave and kind man was taken so tragically.
We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Eric as a result of this tragic loss. We got to know Eric best as a friend of our son Tyler through their school years together. He was a positive influence on all and will truly be missed.
My heart goes out in sympathy to the families and gratitude for the sacrifice made. Our community is blessed by Officer White's service to us. Thank you and bless you all.
YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
I ONCE HEARD THAT "A MAN MAKES A LIVING BY WHAT HE GETS, HE MAKES A LIFE BY WHAT HE GIVES" THANK YOU!
Eric, it was my pleasure to have served beside you and you will be missed. I will remember the good times....Rest in peace my friend.
Even though you are not here on earth, you are an angel in blue watching over us for eternity. When our time comes to be judged, it is with God and you where I will stand to help protect like you did so selflessly. I know you are probably laughing w/ my good friend, Rob from Chandler PD, who lost his life so suddenly in the line of duty. Know my heart goes out to your family and friends and may they find solace that they will be with you one day in eternal peace. God speed my friend.
-Chandler police dispatcher
You are in our thoughts and prayers. I know well the life of a police officer's family and my heart breaks for you.

God bless you brother, you are home now. Matthew 5:9
Since 1986 when I became a NYPD officer, I've been to too many funerals of the heros in blue. I have since had the fortune of working in a more suburban department but have found the dangers of doing our job no less severe. Please be careful out there! Never forget these men died protecting America and protecting our way of life. They are truly heros...........Rest in peace and may God bless your families.
It is with the deepest sympathy that I relay to the White family of this fallen HERO. As a former Law Enforcement Proffessional and now High School Educator, my heart goes out to his family. May the Lord bare all on his angels wings so that the burden is not more then you can bare.

Having grown up and gone to school in Gardner, I have had the pleasure of knowing the entire White family for many, many years. I went to school with his brother Chad, and worked with and under his father, SGT. Jim White (ret.). When ever Eric would see me he would go out of his way to talk to me and ask how things were going and vise versa. Whitey, you will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. You gave the ultimate sacrifice protecting your family and community, and you will always be remembered. Goodbye friend, and God Bless.

I just want to say that everyone's prayers are with the family and we are sorry that this happened. He is resting and God has him at home with him. Although this may not sound very helpful at this time please understand that he is not hurting. Best wishes and my prayers
eric white may you rest in peace and may your family be well always
My condolences go out to the White family. Eric was a good friend and a wonderful officer. I will miss Eric deeply. Thank you, White, for everything...
Our hearts go out to you and your family and We like to say Thank you for dedicating your life to protect us til the end...Godbless
God Bless your family in this difficult time. Mr. White and his whole family have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe. We will never forget. God bless.
Being a retired Phx Officer myself, I have a slight idea of the courage & selflessness it took for Eric to enter that apt. I can guarantee he's done many more "good deeds" for which he deserved Commendations, but never received. He gave up some of his "weekend" time for Court. Yes, he was paid, but the camping trip had to be cancelled or he missed his child's school program. He was protecting the community while it was sleeping. He was working on our weekends while we were out on the lake or having a BBQ, or even celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas. You see, he sacrified a great deal before he entered that apt. He never complained - just did his job. He can never be thanked enough for setting his own life and agenda aside in attempting to capture a person who had no regard for human life. If we could ask him why he did it, I'm sure he'd shrug his shoulders and say, "I just did my job." I don't know Eric, yet he gave his life to keep me safe. Eric, thank you for all of your sacrifices during your career as a Phoenix Police Officer. I'm sure you always gave 100%, but this time you gave it your all. You will be missed. We will be praying for your family during this difficult time.
To the family of Officer Eric White---I'm so sorry for your loss. No one can know what you're going through right now, but please know in your hearts that his sacrifice was not in vain.
I grew up wanting to be a police officer. As a police explorer and
police volunteer, I got to know many
officers and I admire them a great deal. To Officer White and his family, may God be with you right now.
I am very sorry to hear what happened to you and how devastating it is to go through that. I am 13 years old and I do not know what it is like to have some one gone forever but it was close once with my mom. For me life is very fragile God gives as fast as he can take it. It tears me apart to know that peole pass away everyday. Just to know that I try to live every day like my last because I could pass away at any moment. But when you leave this Earth it is Gods calling for you when its time to go home. So God Bless You and Your Family.
I WORKED WITH ERIC WHEN HE WAS THE FRONT DESK. I'M STILL IN SHOCK THAT HE IS GONE. YOU WILL BE MISSED ERIC BY ALL YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN BLUE. TO ERIC'S FAMILY WORDS CANNOT EASY THE PAIN AND SORROW THAT ALL OF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH. TIME WILL HEAL THE PAIN BUT ERIC'S MEMORY WILL BEFORE EVER.
OFFICER ERIC WHITE, MAY YOUR MEMORY AND COMMITMENT TO DUTY LIVE ON THROUGH YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND CO-WORKERS. THANK YOU.
To the family of Officer Eric White, Words cannot take away your pain or loss but please know that I am eternally grateful to your loved one for risking his life each and every day for us.

My name is Ben and I am seven years old. I have two uncles that are police officers in the state of Washington. I say special prayers for them and all police officers in the world. I have wanted to be a police officer since I was three and I got to wear my Uncle Frank's badge. My mom now says that I have two more special angels to watch over me and help me to be a cop someday. I will keep praying for all of you.
Dearest Officer White,
I have never known such love in my heart for a stranger until Saturday evening, when you stood courageously beside my cousin Jason...doing what you did every day without fear or hesitation to keep our community safe. May God bless you & your family always. We will never, ever forget...
Dear Family & Friends,
I can not imagine the feeling of loss that you are having at this time in your lives. My husband is in law enforcement too and I do not know what I would do if something should happen to him. I pray that you find comfort and peace in the Lord during this difficult time in your lives. Remember that He will take care of your husband, father and friend and we will all be with our loved ones for eternity when He comes back.
Love and God Bless
Dear Family and Friends of Eric White:
There are no words that are sufficient to express my sympathy to you. Eric made the ultimate sacrifice to protect others, and I am so grateful to him. My brother is a Mesa police officer, and I can in a very small way imagine how you must feel right now. My prayers are with you.
A hero by definition is: a person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his/her life. This definition certainly stands true when we think of officers White & Wolfe; however, a true hero is more then that. He is the son who takes the time to calm his mother’s fears with a smile, the husband who confides in his wife all of his hopes and doubts, and the father who kisses his children good bye with sincerity, for he knows there is always that possibility he may not return. The job of a police officer is a voluntary one. They each know the risks and what is at stake. But in the same breath, they each know the rewards and the pride that accompany the knowledge that you can, and have made a difference. Therefore, I believe a hero is one who weighs the rewards against the risks, swallows his fears, and selflessly continues their day with no regret or second guessing. Both men are fine examples of a hero, and by the people who loved them and the community that was protected by them, should be remembered as nothing less then that.
To lose a piece of your heart is the worst pain that one can incur in one life.
Eric, you were my son Roberto's very best friend and partner. As I like to say, 'any friend of my son's is like a son to me'. Even though I never met you personally and only talked to you a few times, the love Roberto felt and feels for you is akin to a brother's love. My heart goes out to you, Colleen...Eric is in the arms of the Father now and will always be remembered as a hero to all. His love for his work and his family and friends will never be forgotten and will live in our hearts and minds forever. God Bless You, Colleen and children.
This is so, so sad. I am so grateful for our law enforcement officers and what they do. This is a terrible tragedy and my thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of these two officers. They won't be forgotten.
To the White family,
My heart and prayers go out to you. Thank you for allowing Officer White to do what he loved. Your son and husband will never be forgotten he is a true hero.
My families thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with you during this ever so difficult time. We pray asking for strength to help carry you through this tragic tome. May GOD BLESS YOU, and your family.
My thoughts and prayers are with whole White family. I will miss you. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. I will see you again.
On behalf of the Navajo Dept. of Law Enforcement, our condolences to the families and friends of Officer White. May God provide comfort and understanding through these trying times.
We extend our very deepest sympathy to Officer White's family and friends. As the mother and father-in-law of a police officer, we pray many times a day for the safety of our son-in-law, the husband of our daughter and the daddy of our grandchildren. We are greatly saddened when we hear that a law enforcement officer has made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Please know that we are forever grateful to Eric for accepting the call as a police officer - an awesome task! May God wrap His comforting arms around you at this time and provide you with a peace that passeth all understanding in the days ahead.
Thank You for all you have done to help the comunity and the Police Department. My thoughts and prayers are with the White family. You will be missed greatly.
To the White Family; My deepest sympathies to you at this extremely difficult time. May your faith help to heal your hearts. My son is also a Phx Officer and works out of the same precinct as Eric. These types of tragedies always make us realize that these brave,commited men and women risk their lives every single day to help keep our communities safe. I Thank each and every one of you. May God Bless You and keep you in his Care.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and fellow Officers. You will never be forgotten.
May God grant you a very special place in heaven for the sacrafice of your life to protect strangers. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family....I know how they are feeling because I have 2 sons who are police officers. I pray that we never get that call but in my heart I will know they died doing exactly what they loved to do...that will be my salvation. May God be with you and your family forever and grant you the peace that Eric is now experiencing.
I'm deeply sorry for your loss.
Whitey, where to start? So many memories, so many good times, so many of life's lessons learned together. Having just spoke with him recently to wish him a Happy Birthday, I am still in shock and will be for awhile. When I asked him what he had done for his birthday he said, "just hung out with the family." That is just who and how he was. Eric WAS a good man and father and will be DEARLY missed. He gave me a lot of good advice these last 18 years and it is hard for me to comprehend that he will no longer be able to. I am sure he will watch over his family and protect them as much from heaven as he did here on earth.
It warms my heart to see that people from all over this world took the time to remember such a wonderful, bright man.
With deepest sincerity,
Thank you, and god bless.
I am a retired police sergeant and I am saddened about your loss.

Your family is in our prayers.
To Eric's family and friends...my deepest sympathy and all my love and thoughts are with you all. I have just recently began knowing your family and friends, thru Andrea, Eric's cousin. Your families are ones with warm hearts and open arms. I never had the honor of meeting Eric, but Andrea has always spoken of the LOVE and respect she has for him. I see Andrea and her family grieving, and feel helpless. I experienced the loss of a love one, and can only say that the pain may never go away, but in time, it hurts less. In my eyes, Eric is a HERO, and should always be honored for that. He gave his life to make our lives safer. He served in the military, to ensure our freedom. My only regret, is that I never had the Honor to meet him. TO the White family, my family will hold Eric in our prayers. I wish I could be out there, but know my heart, soul and mind is.
"Blessed be the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God". Eric, we will never forget you or what you did that day. Our deepest sympathies as well as our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. You died a hero and with honor and pride will you be remembered.
I worked with Eric at Estrella Jail. He was a friendly, humorous person that always made work fun. I am deeply saddened by your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We all appreciate your dedication and bravery. God bless you and your wife and children.

Our deepest sympathy for you and the kids. We are heartbroken over your loss. Eric was a special kind of father and man. Our prayers are with you.
We are so sorry for your loss. We can't even imagine what you are going through right now. Your family has made the ultimate sacrifice in order to keep the rest of the community safe. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Eric, my fellow brother that I have had the pleasure of working with you for 3 years. I pray every minute I can change time, Im so sorry you are gone. Life on the department will never be the same. I'll be here for your family as you would expect me to be. Im proud, and honored that you were a part of my life. I miss you buddy
As a mother of a fallen officer myself, my heart goes out to your family. I am so grateful that life is eternal, and will bring us back together as families again. I am so proud of anyone who puts on a badge everyday, not knowing how the day will end. Eric will never be forgotten, he is a true hero. May God Bless his family, and comfort them always.
Eric, you are in God's hands now. May he keep you and comfort you. I'll always remember how good of an officer you were. God Bless.
I worked with Eric when he was an officer for MSCO at Madison. I looked forward to the days when he was assigned to my area because he was so easy going and fun to work with. He always had such a soft spoken, laid back, way about him that he always made you feel comfortable to be around him. He was a great guy and he was missed when he left to go to Phoenix Police. I was glad to see him every time he would bring some body into the jail, he always made a point to say hello to his former co-workers. When I heard the news of his death I was shocked, and I can not find any words that can make since of this tragedy. I can only pray that God keep you close by during this time when you and your family are struggling the most. Know that Eric will always be with you in your hearts. It was an honor to have known him and to have been able to have worked with him. He will be greatly missed! God Bless
My deepest sympathy to the family, friends and fellow officers of Eric White. May your thoughts be full of wonderful memories that will help to ease the pain caused by the void that has been left in your lives. We will never forget he paid the ultimate price to protect the citizens of Phoenix. May God Bless you and give you comfort!
A Police Widow from 1990.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your husband / father. Eric looks like he was a very kind and thoughtful person -- one who was willing to put other's safety first and foremost.

My family and I are honored to have known Eric and are proud of his willingness to go out and risk his life everyday, so that we can feel more safe.
He was a true family man and it was obvious how much he loved Colleen and his children. He was always so proud to talk about his family.
We are blessed to have known such a wonderful man - who would do anything ... even if it meant giving you the shirt off his back.
Colleen, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids during this difficult time.

"Tis not that Dying hurts us so-
'Tis Living-hurts us more-
But Dying-is a different way-
A Kind behind the Door-
The Southern Custom-of the Bird-
That ere the Frosts are due-
Accepts a better Latitude-
We-are the Birds-that stay.
The Shiverers round Farmers' doors-
For whose reluctant Crumb-
We stipulate-till pitying Snows-
Persuade our Feathers Home.
I will miss my cousin so much. He was a good man. My prayers go out to others in my family, Colleen, and the kids.

Our deepest sympathies to the family, friends, and fellow officers of P.O. Eric White. Having lost one of our own only one week ago, we are all too familiar with the loss you are feeling. Our only comfort is knowing he is in a better place walking the streets with God. He made the ultimate sacrifice serving his community. I had the privilege of attending high school with Eric and knew him to be a great friend. Knowing him as he was then, I know he passed doing what he loved to do. Heroes live on in our hearts forever and are never forgotten. Rest in peace my brother and Godspeed.
I knew Eric when he was a United States Marine, before he became a police officer. Could always count on him as a friend. Except when he would give me the "fishhook" in our wrestling competitions. Gonna miss ya Whitey...
God bless you and your family. Thank you for your service to the community and the State of Arizona. May you be a role model for all law enforcement officers.

I'm sorry I didn't get married soon enough to have you as my best man; when you asked me to be yours I was more than honored!

I Love You!I'll miss you,I will never forget you!

My respect, and gratitude for sharing your loved one
Officer Eric White, and for
his service to our world.
Eric J. White, an excellent officer, a wonderful family man, and a good neighbor, you will be missed by all but never forgotten. We share the White Family's grief from the sudden loss of Eric during this time of mourning and forever.
As the son of a Phoenix Police Officer, I grew up in the PPD family. And like my dad, I know all too well the grief that is felt when experiencing the loss of a brother or sister oficer. But I take comfort in knowing that there are people out there that are willing to go into harm's way without hesitating to think about their personal safety in order to protect others. Eric and Jason were such people. Those officers with them in that courtyard are such people. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten and I hope their families and especially the young children of these brave young men will understand what heroes Eric and Jason are. My thoughts and prayers are with them. And for those officers, especially those Squaw Peak Pct. officers, who have to strap on the gear and show up for roll call the next day, God Bless the Sheepdogs. They know what that means.
I have a 28 year old son in the NYPD and know the situations that police officers face everyday. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Be proud of the service Mr. White provided for the community.
Sympathy to family, friends, and the entire law enforcement community.
W.E. Werner, Arizona Game Ranger (Retired)

Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to Eric's family. No words can ease the sorrow they must feel. But let it be known that you have your own Guardian Angel.
