It’s been over a year since Davey was killed in the line of duty.
And we have great memories of our lives with him. We laughed, we played and we travelled. We watched Davey play a lot of sports and we went to many games of all kinds in all different cities with him.
So many memories that bring big smiles to our faces.
But all of our dreams for the future have been snatched away.
Dreams of Davey coaching his son and daughter in baseball, basketball, volleyball and every other sport there is.
Dreams of Davey retiring from the police force and figuring out what he was going to do next.
Dreams of Davey teaching his kids how to drive.
Dreams of Davey and Kristen growing old together. They were married young so we talked about them the possibility of them celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.
Dreams of Davey and his son playing a mean game of one-on-one basketball after his son grew taller than him.
Dreams of Davey walking his daughter down the aisle.
Now that the shock has worn off and we’ve grown through this last very difficult year of memorials and tough days, one of the hardest parts is all of the dreams that have been snatched away.
All of the great times and fun with Davey that will never be.
We are so grateful for all of the awesome memories we have.
But will be no more new memories with him.
That’s a very tough reality to deal with.
