Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Tiffany Catherine Hickey

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

Tiff,
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.

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.

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.

Tiff,
Just thought I would leave you a note to let you know that you are so very dearly missed. I find it so very hard not to see you out on the lawn now that we have moved back to Arlington...but I know that you are watching over all of us and that is a comfort.

I was looking around the page and you came up. I remember to this day you practicing your defense techniques on me at the soccer fields. I hope that you know, you continue to inspire me everyday that I put that badge on my uniform.

TIFFANY,

ANOTHER FEMALE OFFICER WAS ADDED TO THE NAMES OF HEROS THAT HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE IN THE LINE OF DUTY.

IT REMINDED ME OF YOU AND I JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.

~~~Eternally and Always~~~

I didn't get to say goodbye
You're gone without a reason why
I've loved you all of my life
and then you weren't there

I didn't get a chance to say
how much I cared
I can't even remember the tears
that I cried
All I really wanted was to tell you
Goodbye

When I last saw you I felt I wouldn't
see you again
There was a distance between us
that I couldn't explain
You wouldn't look
at me but I could see the tears
in your eyes
If you knew then
You should have told me
Then I could have said
Goodbye

So many words left unspoken
So many hearts left so broken
My love for you is forever
And that will never die
We'll be together always
Our souls are one with God
Eternally and Always
I'll never have to say
Goodbye

I never knew Tiffany, but I see her picture every day. The Officers who knew her still talk about her and touch her picture daily. We recently placed a plaque on the front of the station in memory of Tiffany. There has been talk of a new station and Tiffany's name has come up. I would like to see the new station with her name. She is missed and thought of daily.

Tiffany,

Just wanted to let you and your family know that you are being thought of not only this holiday, but everyday.

You are missed.

I saw this poem on another memorial site and felt it very much worthwhile copying and posting here. God bless you, Tiffany, and your grieving family as well.

Merry Christmas From Heaven

I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
on a cold wintry nights

I still share your hopes
and all of your cares
I"ll even remind you
to please say your prayers

I just want to tell you
you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
above all the crowd

Keep trying each moment
to stay in His grace
I came here before you
to help set your place

You don"t have to be
perfect all of the time
He forgives you the slip
If you continue the climb

To my family and friends
please be thankful today
I"m still close beside you
in a new special way

I love you all dearly
now don"t shed a tear
cause I"m spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year
