Fathers Day  / Larry D. Minard Jr. (Oldest son )

Sorry I am a day late Dad. Just want to say Happy Fathers Day.

I miss you and love much,I think of you always. There has been a lot of fighting between all of your children and I know this is something you would not approve of. You raisedus to  be better than that and I an sorry for disappointing you. I know if you were here things would not be this way. I explain to my Grand daughter who you are and what you stand for,I sure wish you were here to meet her and my wife and children.

I try to live my life as you told me to,be true to yourself and love and respect your family as much as possible. Unfortunally the family part has not gone so well. I love you and miss you and hope to be by your side someday.

Love now & forever  you son

another year  / Charlotte Hyland (daughter)

Can't believe another year has gone by, and yet another year without my dad. My kids would have loved you, and I am sure you would have loved them, you have so many grandkids.

Thanksgiving, well it was good, would have been better with you there. I wonder sometimes what the holidays would be like, if you were still with us, would my borther and sisters live so far away, would we all be friends?

Your life was cut short and we all forget sometimes that we are all still family, with or without you here. It has been years since all of us were even in the same room together. I know you would not have wanted things this way, bitterness has set inside all of us, and it has been there for so long that it has taken up permanant residence there, I for one am so very sorry about that dad, and will try to make it better. I am sorry, for the way things have turned out for all of us.

If any of my brothers and sisters are reading this, I love you all, and we do not need dad here to prove that to each other.

I love you, dad....

Change / Charlotte Hyland (daughter)

My whole life has been spent grieving for you and for myself this time of the year comes around and I mark on calendar Aug 17th as bad day...well not this year this year I celebrate you your life not your death. Your life even as short as it was was so much bigger then your death.

Your story is in  your life the lives of those who carry on in your place your children and grandchildren and even great grandchildren. You should be remembered for all you did and what you meant to people and all the lives you touched.

I have been told change is good well this is my change from now on I will celebrate your life everyday and on Aug 17th is the day to celebrate you going home to Jesus and that is nothing to grieve about. I will see you and we will talk and I know in my heart that you know I love you.

Birthdays are for celebrating not for grieving I refuse to let anyone take anymore years from me.

Love you everyday.....

God bless your father.  / Craig Spinharney (Fellow Omaha Resident )

As a long time resident of Omaha I remember the evening your father lost his life. We lived a little more than a mile and a half north of Ohio St.

That evening will forever be etched in my memory.

The bravery of your Father and his fellow officers is what kept this city from going over the edge when there were times when it could have.

Your Dad is smiling down on you all and for good reason. You are to be commended for keeping the memory of a gentleman and outdstanding public servant out here for all to see.

Thinking about you!  / Charlotte Hyland (daughter)

Seems this time of the year we all get a little nostalgic. We all miss our dad and brother and uncle and grandpa..........

Life gives us so many curves sometimes it is really hard to see around the bends. I guess you could just say that our vision is clouded.  So dad it seems that one of the men who caused all of our grief is very sick. I want to pray for him but I am finding it very hard to do.  I know I need to forgive but I ask myself how and why.

This is my curve dad I am having a hard time seeing around it. How do I begin to forgive? He took you from me and why should I forgive?  I have suffered so much pain why shouldn't he.

I am posting this here today for all to see. I am going to find away around this curve in my life and begin my healing journey.  The Bible says we must forgive in order to be forgiven. I want to be with you dad someday. So I am letting you know that it is time, my time anyway to begin to see around my curves.

I love you, so much I love you, you are a man I have never known and I still love you and ache for you, for just a second with you just to see your face and to hear the voice I have long forgotten. So to do this dad I must forgive I know you understand and I hope all who read this understand. I want to see you again but in order for me to do this I must forgive them men who took everything from me.

Loving you always your daughter Charlotte

ANOTHER AUGUST 17TH  / CAROL BOOHER (DAUGHTER)

TODAY IS A DAY THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY I WILL NEVER FORGET. ON AUGUST 16TH I SPEND THE WHOLE DAY SAYING TO MYSELF 39 YEARS AGO TODAY DAD AS ALIVE. HE COULD NEVER HAVE KNOWN THE HELL HE WAS WALKING INTO OR THE HELL THAT HIS FAMILY WOULD LIVE THROUGH FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.

I LOOK AT MY BOYS AND THEY ARE JUST THAT BOYS MY DAD WAS 30 YEARS OLD WHEN WE BURIED HIM HE WAS JUST A BOY HIMSELF. I TRUELY BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART THAT HAD HE LIVED OUR LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH RICHER IN THAT WE WOULD HAVE HAD A LOVING RESPONSABLE PARENT TO SUPPORT AND GUIDE US.

MY FAITH IN GOD IS STRONG AND I TRUST IN THE PROMISES HE HAS MADE US SO I KNOW THAT I WILL SEE MY DAD AGAIN. I WILL BE ABLE TO HUG HIM AND HAVE ETURNITY TO GET TO KNOW HIM.
