Officer Olivieri,

Thank you for your years of service and commitment. When we put on this uniform, we never know which tour of duty will be our last. It is the hope that the lives you touched throughout your career made significant impacts. Further, may one day we see the fruits you’re your labor through your unselfish sacrifice to the profession which you served. Thank You Brother, Rest in Peace.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges 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 tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

I did not know you or have heard about you, but I wanted to say May you rest in peace and may your family find that peace and serenity that eventually comes. It has been 8 years since my Mother was taken from us, I catch myself crying to this day (at this moment) and yet I just cannot seem to fathom how such an awful thing could happen. Things will get better. Have faith...

The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today's sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God's love.

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization.
As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
I have given my life so that others may live in peace.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.
You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND COMFORT IN THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE HERE ON EARTH.

I worked with Joe for several years on that expressway. I remember several nights where it was 99% boredom, but then that 1% occurred and he was there doing whatever he could.
It wasn't just a job to him it was a dedication. He had a big heart, he cared about what he did, and he did his best. He suffered the Ultimate Sacrifice because he was trying to rescue people he didn't know. I'm sorry you couldn't keep that subtle promise we all make to our family, the one that goes 'I'll see ya tomorrow.'. It doesn't sound like much after awhile but on the ride to work you really mean it. Rest well Joe you did a great job.
