I just visited your grave again today. Every time the holidays roll around
I get somber. You are still my best friend my "Trooper". I thank you for
Staring me in the right direction. I would not be the man & father I'am today.
Wow 16 yrs. Smh - Rest in peace Tacklehead! I love you my friend.

I will always remember you, the hard working, professional, and fun loving guy you always were. You worked hard to get to highway patrol and you got your wish. You patrolled the streets of Philadelphia, now you are patrolling the clouds in Heaven. Take care my brother, you are in good company. May God bless you. I SALUTE YOU SIR. SLIM PHI SLIM!!!

There is not a day that goes by that I don't have some type of reflection of you. You were my "Big little brother". I still keep a picture of you on the passenger side of my car because you always wanted me to drive (So you could look:-)I miss you man! I really do. We've always had good times. I can't remember bad ones. When I pass Highway Patrol Headquarters on Erie Ave, I always salute in honor of you. You personified Highway... Tough, loyal,caring, and a friend to the end! Rest in peace my brother because you left us too soon.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I became friends with Leddie before I became a cop. I played football with him in a fairmount park league on Sundays. They called him "TOP DOG" and he was a great player. Besides being a great player he was a great person. He treated you like a brother and would do anything for you. Rest in Peace

Brother Brown,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue
