Final Inspection

The Policeman stood and faced his God,
which ust always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now Policeman."
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turn the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?

The Policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No Lord I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry a badge
can't always be a saint."

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
because the streets are awfuly tough.

But I never took a penny,
that wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked alot of overtime
when the bills got just to steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
among the people here.
They never wanted me around
except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
it needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had to much,
but if you don't I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne
where the Saints had often trod.
As the Policeman waited quietly,
for the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, Policeman,
you've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
you've done your time in Hell."

GODSPEED AND REST IN PEACE BROTHER FOR MAKING THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE ONLY DOING WHAT YOU LOVED AND TO SAVE SO MANY PEOPLE. WHO KNOW'S HOW MANY LIVES WERE SAVED BECAUSE OF YOU AND FELLOW BROTHER OFFICERS.

Rest in peace, brother. It takes a brave man to rush into a burning building to save others. It takes an extraordinary man to do so when he knows he already has damage to his lungs. Your valor is an example we can only hope to live up to. Peace be with your family and friends.

Your a good man for all you've done. 21 years as a campus cop is very impressive. Your loss will not only be felt from your Home and Police family but from the Faculty and Students as well. Rest easy and God bless.

"DON'T GRIEVE FOR ME"

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path god laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turn my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Task left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Than fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow,
My life's been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
I believe in God and believe I will see you again.
PO Devlin must have suffered for a long time now he is in a place where there is no pain, no tears and he will never be forgotten a real HERO
