Reflections for Police Officer Rocco W. Laurie

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.

Dear Patrolman Laurie,

Although we never had a chance to meet, we shared a common goal.
To make the world a better place, but now it's taken a toll.
Now I say to you in words of a prayer, I will remember what you've done.
Your death was the ultimate in sacrifice, how tragic that you're gone.
One day we'll meet and talk about our common goal and then,
The heartache that I'm feeling now, will no longer have to mend.

To the world you were a hero. We'll meet up with you someday. In the meantime, please protect us and pray for us from above. We love you dear one. Thank you for everything.

Rocco,
Your sensless death was huge reason that I became a police officer. Hopefully, between all of us, our service will be rewarded in the future. You will never be forgotten.

Hey Rocco, I was a young DC cop when you and Foster were murdered. I saw the movie, and have never forgotten you, and Foster. You were New York's Finest. Met many a NYPD at the Police Memorial, they are THE MOST. Rocco, as you now know, Jesus Loves You, so do we, brother.

Rest in peace blue angel. You were taken 2 days after I was born. One life was given one was taken. God bless those left behind.

OFFICERS ROCCO LAURIE AND GREGORY FOSTER WERE DEDICATED MEMBERS OF THE NYPD.THEY INSPIRED ME AS A YOUNG BOY GROWING UP IN NEW YORK CITY TO BECOME A PROUD LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AND START A PROGRAM FOR KIDS IN THE BRONX.
THEY WERE SHOT FROM BEHIND IN THIER BACKS BY LOWLIFE COWARDS WHO DIDNT HAVE THE GUTS TO FACE THEM.
THEY WERE TRUE HEROES THAT SERVED THE PEOPLE OF NEW YORK CITY WITH PRIDE AND RESPECT. R.I.P. MY BROTHERS.
