Reflections for Police Officer Tiffany Catherine Hickey

Officer Hickey, I see your picture everyday in the court building before I clock in for shift and I see it everyday when I clock out. I am a shift supervisor and an FTO. I have never met you, but I think of you often and it helps remind me how precious life is and how I need to take advantage of my position to help people by protecting them and serving everyday. You gave the ultimate sacrafice. I don't know when my day will come, but I pray that when it does I am as as blessed, missed and loved as you are by all here in Cockrell Hill PD and the world.

You were on your way to setting a remarkable precedent as a Law Enforcement Officer yet God had other plans for you. Although we may not ever understand, or want to understand why He chose to take you from us, we can only try to accept that He needed you more by His side than we did.

Joshua was only seven years old when you left us and he immediately claimed you as his Guardian Angel. For Christmas, the year your little brother took his oath as a Police Officer, Joshua gave you back to him to be his Guardian Angel. I know you watch over both of them. I thank you.

We know it was your desire to serve and to protect people's lives and to make a difference. You did.

Tiffany, tomorrow marks the day that seven years ago your tragic accident happened. Cannot tell you enough how much and how often you are thought of. Just wanted to let you and your family know that you are thought of and missed. Keep being that angel in the sky that watches over me at work.

I never met you but I met some friends of yours tonight at a resturant in a small town in Louisiana your mom and dad were there but I did not get the chance to meet them. I looked up your picture to see the wonderful young woman that so many people loved and adored. What a beautiful young woman. I was at the resturant tonight celebrating my oldest daughters high school graduation. I thought your friends were great and I loved the t-shirts they had on in memory of you. Im happy I was able to find page.

Saw your mom and dad last weekend, been thinking about you a lot, seems to happen this time of year, is so hard to believe it has been almost seven years now since you have not been with us. Went out to see you the other day, gives me a very calm feeling to come by, known you must be at peace and reflects in all of us each day. Your brother is a fine officer now I hear, hope to see him one of these days soon. Will be thinking about you again this year come the end of the month,, knowning you would have become a great officer, leader and inspiration to all you touch

I was thinking today about things that happened so long ago and your name came into my head. It's hard to believe that time has passed so quickly since you left. And, although I did not know you well, the moments I had with you have stuck with me forever. I look up to you for all your accomplishments and hard work and I hope that your family is doing well.

In our hearts forever,

All officers in bureaus now have to ride a week in patrol every six months. I completed by week yesterday. I worked at the SW Division. On the way to the station I always drove past your picture at Illinois and Cockrell Hill. Every day I asked that you watch after me and all the others. You did, thank you guardian angel.

Where are you? I have been
searching for your continuation
that seems unfinished. I have
wanted to believe you still exist somewhere else, somewhere seperate,
but near to me.

I need only to look inside.
I will find you there, bright
and whole, shining steady at
the end of a silver thread
of love that will connect us
forever to the most powerful
truth that has ever been
or will ever be.

Poem from 'Safe Passage'

Dear Tiff,

I had the strangest urge to look you up today. It may seem crazy, but I think of you often. We used to play soccer together on the TX Stars when we were in the 9th grade (about 13 years ago). I will never forget that you had the thickest and longest ponytail of us all. And you played with such intensity and fire that I know you must have put into your career as well. I remember that I was not living in the area when I heard about your accident because I was off at college and had not spoken to or seen you in years. But it really hit me in the gut and you still cross my mind at the strangest times (like right now, I am sitting at work and DEFINITELY not supposed to be on the internet!) I am not going to pretend that we were best friends, or that I could possibly have experienced the extent of loss that was felt by your family, friends, and co-workers, but I wanted you to know that I have never forgotten you and I never will. You are not a forgettable person. Wherever you are, I hope you are happy, safe, warm and comfortable. And I hope there is a soccer field somewhere nearby. : )

I recently began viewing the odmp and Tiffany's memorial popped up. I was immediately touched by her sacrifice and bravery @ such a tender young age. I am sure you all still hold her memory dearly as we approach the Holidays. Please know that there are private ciizens all over the counry still to this day that people of such caliber as Tiffany, do not come along every day. God Bless you all. A concerned citizen

I come to the page, I read the reflections (from the first to the last), I cry ( I do that a lot) then I leave. No one knows how much I miss you and love you.

December 13, 2005

I hope that your friends and families' pain has eased with time, Thank you for your service, A hero never dies, Rest in peace.

I did not know Tiffany but I know she must have been a very loving person. I've seen her beautiful grave marker and numerous stuffed animals and other offerings left at her resting place. It is not far from the grave of Dimebag Darrell Abbot, who now may be the most famous residents of the cemetery although all are equal in the eyes of God. Tiffany is resting with the angels, and that should be comforting to those who grieve.

Tiffany... I never had the pleasure of meeting you but by the reflections on on your memorial page I can see you were very much loved and respected. We have lost 2 officers in the Fort Worth/Dallas area lately and it has been a very trying month here. With the lose of those officers I find myself looking at the ODMP everyday hoping and praying another name is not added. I found your page and it jarred my memory of that awful time when you were taken from your family and loved ones. God Bless you for your determination in realizing your dream. We hear so many bad things about police in the papers I come here to read and remember we are loved and what we go out and do everyday is not in vain. And as you know being a female police officer takes just a little bit more special person and your were that person. Rest in Peace Tiffany, you will always be in my thoughts as I go out there and do the best job I can.

Hey Tiffany,

Wanted to let your family know I am thinking of them. (I know that you already know I think of you every single day). You were an angel on earth and I miss you. I know you are welcoming our most recent Angel Officers Jackson and Nava. Thank you for continuing to look after us.

Tiffany I think of you all the time and the short period we worked together while you were in training. I miss you so much and miss your laughter and voice. I know you continue to watch over your brothers and sisters in blue. Its been very hard the last couple of weeks for police officers,give Officer Nava a grand welcome into heaven, and watch over his family and friends. Until we meet again partner.....

Yesterday, December 1, 2005, Officer Henry "Hank" Nava, Jr. passed away at the age of 39. I never met him just like I never had the opportunity or privilage to meet you, but I find myself thinking of you both and praying for you and your families. Please let Officer Nava know that we miss him as we miss you and that like you he left this world far to early. You touched so many lives in your short time on this Earth and I know that you are watching us from Heaven.
