Officer's wife speaks about husband's death

The widow of a Lexington police officer, killed in the line of duty says she can't believe her husband is gone.

Officer Bryan Durman died after an SUV hit him at Limestone and Alabama, Thursday night.

Sunday afternoon, Brandy Durman shared memories of her husband for the first time since his death.

A candlelight vigil in Duncan Park, Sunday night, honored Officer Bryan Durman.

Hours after his widow talked about the man she and her 4-year-old son, Brayden, will been missing for the rest of their lives.

Brandy Durman describes her husband as "the type of father everyone wishes they'd had. He's the type of father good fathers aspire to be."

Brandy met Bryan while in the Air force in 2004, through a friend.

Bryan was a decorated Air force staff Sergeant, with several tours in the middle east under his belt, before becoming an officer in his hometown.

"He always knew he'd come back to Lexington. He wanted to be an officer because there is so much crime in the world and so many things happening that shouldn't and he wanted to make sure he had a hand in making the world safer for Brayden," said Brandy.

Brandy said, "It is so hard to wrap wrap my mind around the fact that Bryan is gone. The suspect can still wake up every morning. He has the privilege to see his family. I will never get to be held by my Bryan again or wake up next to him. Brayden asked me if he could hug his daddy--- what am I supposed to say?"

Visitation for officer Durman is from three to eight Monday night, at Southland Christian Church.
