Reflections for Police Officer Waverly L. Brown

 

You are remembered today and thank you Sir for your service

This writer is outraged that your killer was paroled in 2003. I am so angry, and so sorry this was done to you.

Officer Brown, all of us from the neighborhood knew you as "Chipper Brown". You were a friend to everyone on the "Block". We hated to see that happen to you and "Sgt,Ogrady".
It's Been 26 years. But it was only yesterday that I saw you smile and wave, as you cruised down Franklin st, in your patrol car. Then in the Blink of an eye, You were gone from the community's lives forever. But all of your Kind ways and your brave smile, will always live in our hearts forever.
Thanks for all the good times, in Nyack. 10960
Rest in Peace "Chipper".

Officer Brown, today marks the 25 anniversary of your murder at the hands of some misguided barbarians. I can only hope they faced true justice in the next world since none seemed to face it in this one.

Your efforts on behalf of the citizens of Nyack and all peaceful innocent people have not been forgotten. I know in my heart that, though you were taken from this world bodily, you never left your family.

God Bless you and may you and Sgt. O’Grady continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

PO Brown: You and I never met, but I am proud to read of your heroism. Fifteen years of heroic service, then dying in the line of duty is a record to honor. I didn't know you, but I know your children (now adults)and grandchildren and I knew your wife (now deceased). Your record is worthy of recognition by this extended family, and I intend to share this information. May you rest in peace.

A hero never dies....

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

DAY IS DONE,
GONE THE SUN,
FROM THE HILLS, FROM THE LAKE, FROM THE SKIES.
ALL IS WELL, SAFELY REST,
GOD IS NIGH.

GO TO SLEEP, PEACEFUL SLEEP,
MAY THE SOLDIER OR SAILOR, GOD KEEP.
ON THE LAND OR THE DEEP,
SAFE IN SLEEP.

LOVE, GOOD NIGHT,
MUST THOU GO,
WHEN THE DAY, AND THE NIGHT NEED THEE SO?
ALL IS WELL. SPEEDETH ALL
TO THEIR REST.

FADES THE LIGHT;
AND AFAR
GOETH DAY, AND THE STARS SHINETH BRIGHT,
FARE THEE WELL; DAY IS GONE,
NIGHT IS ON.

THANKS AND PRAISE,
FOR OUR DAYS,
'NEATH THE SUN, 'NEATH THE STARS, 'NEATH THE SKY,
AS WE GO, THIS WE KNOW,
GOD IS NIGH.

On the anniversary of your death, I salute you for your service and honor you for your sacrifice.

A hero never dies....

Rest in peace, hero. God bless.

Rest in peace brother on this the date of your untimely passing.
Even though one of those responsible for your passing was released last month she will face a higher court. There will be no chance for parole and the judgement will be final.

In memory of Officer Waverly "Chipper" Brown please light a blue light in a window of your home and let it shine 24/7!
