Reflections for Police Officer Brian J. Lorenzo

I'm wearing your shirt again and four kids asked who Brian Lorenzo was and I told them a Philadelphia police officer and told them how a drunk driver caused. His death in a vehicular homicide type of death

By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

never forgotten

I found out today that I will be riding in honor of Brian during Law Enforcement United's Road to Hope in May of 2013. It is going to be an honor to ride in his memory. I picked him because his EOW is very close to my and my sons birthday.

I'm down in Fla now and just viewed this memorial and I am heart broken to hear that Brian is gone!

Quick story about integrity and Brian, years back a female mounted cop, married mind you to a fellow cop, was constantly hitting on Brian, she knowing full well that Brian was married.

Brian always brushed these unwanted advances off, finally Brian grew tired of these advances and put this female mounted cop in her place right in the ORS, in front of all to see and hear!

Brian told her, you should be ashamed of yourself, you have a great, hard working and loving husband and this is how you re-pay him, and how anyone on this job would put trust in you is beyond belief, so no more come ons, you are a disgrace to your marriage and to this police department!

The female mounted cop stood there dumb founded and expressionless!

Brian was not only a dedicated cop but a dedicated family, wish there were more like him!
God Bless you Brian!

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.
