Reflections for Police Officer James A. Shields

Jimmy, sorry I didn't say hello last year. My bad. Hope all is well in Heaven. You'd have 23 years on if you were still with us. Hopefully the pension in heaven is better there then the one down here.
Until next year bro.....

Thinking of you and your families and friends on this
7th anniversary. Thanks for protecting us at such a
high price. You chose a difficult profession and one
that has my respect. May the Lord Jesus continue to
offer His peace and comfort to all who trust in Him.

Seven years today, our lives were changed forever. We love you Jimmy

The older we get,the faster time seems to be going by and yet it seems only yesterday when I got the call about your demise.
Your family stopped by the station a few weeks ago.Wow,your boys are getting big (but i'm sure you know that)!I'm sure you're very proud of them as I know they are of you.
As you may already know, one of the men responsible for your death was locked up by the guys in "D" for armed robbery. He got 20 years.Another chose to shoot it out with the guys from Niagara Falls PD.It would seem those responsible for your death are each getting their just reward,one way or another...
Take care Jim.Everyone misses you. Until next year...

Jimmy: Unfortunately, this month marks the seventh year we lost you. Our friend. Such a kind and considerate gentle man. Through all the daily madness and occasional distractions, your memory is still very much alive and will remain. Jim, as a father and your friend, I feel tremendous pain when I look at my boy and know you can't hold your boys. This is the true tragedy of our loss. I only hope the boys know if they ever need anything, to just contact us.
