CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WHSV) -- Family and friends said goodbye to Waynesboro Police Reserve Captain Kevin Quick at a memorial service in Charlottesville Monday morning in the John Paul Jones Arena.
Virginia's Attorney General Mark Herring attended the service and many of the speakers remembered the man Kevin Quick was and the legacy he left behind.
"To Kevin Wayne Quick, thank you for being the friend that you always were. May God bless and keep you until we meet again," said Waynesboro Police Captain Mike Martin.
Memories were shared, including this poem from Kevin's niece:
"Love is a shoulder to cry on, love is a kiss goodnight, love is knowing God is always in your heart, love is letting someone go in your life, love is kind words, love is helping someone up, love is keeping Kevin's memory alive, love isn't the end."
"What I struggle with the most in trying to tell Kevin's story, I think everyone will agree, is this final chapter doesn't belong in his book," said Martin.
As the motorcade made its way to Quick's final resting place.
"I choose to be happy, because everything will be okay in the end. And if it is not okay , then it is not the end," said Waynesboro Police Chief Mike Wilhelm.
Knowing there are still more chapters to come.
Quick was buried this afternoon at a cemetery in Nelson County after a private ceremony with family and fellow officers.
