Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Tiffany Catherine Hickey

Tiffany,
I met you many years ago when you were a Police Explorer in Arlington. I was Proud to see you excel with you dream, yet sad to learn of your accomplishment through your tragedy.
Sorry I have taken so long to leave a reflection but I have had your Obituary on my wall since it was printed. I have been asked many times who you are and I reply that you are my "Guardian Angel". God bless you ,your Family and Departmment. Your desire to serve and make a difference will not be forgotten.

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.

Almost six years have passed and not a day goes by that you are not thought of.

Tiffany,
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

Hey Tiffany,

Just wanted to let you and your family know that I am thinking of you all. I still miss you so much. I hope your family is doing well.

I remember long conversations with you about how much fun we would have when we 'hit the streets'. I was in class 259 DPD and you in class 258.
I now teach H.S. and will soon finish my Doctorate. On the memorial of your death I tell stories about you and your great attitude and bravery so that your memory will go on touch more people than you could ever know.

Tiff,
I come to the page often and read the reflections...the new ones as well as the old ones...and know that there is emptiness, not only in our lives, but in the lives of the many, many people that you touched during your short life time. We maintain your picture on the pole where the accident occured along with flowers and honor your memory in many ways. Your goal to "make a difference" was reached, as were the other goals you set in your short life.
You will always be loved and remembered.
Dad

I just started another job recently and come to find out I met some officers who never knew you but worked for Cockrell Hill PD. I hope that you and your family know that to this day you are still touching people's lives. I'm glad that you are looking out for me up there.

We lost an officer on friday and I learned of this website and typed your name in. I rember you sitting in the court room during your interview and looking so nervous. I rember telling the other guys on the board that I was just not sure. You were so excited and could not wait to become a police officer. I often wonder if I did the wrong thing and allowing you to get hired at such a young age. I have lost contact with your parents but everytime I see a motorcyle driver with a patch I often wonder if it is your dad. I know you will always watch after your brothers in blue and I do apologize for losing contact with your family. Please continue to look after your brothers and god bless your family

Tiffany,
Rarely a day goes by that I don't think about you. I have your picture, along with the other "girls" from Class 258 on my bulletin board at work. I would give ANYTHING in the world to change what happened. There is no doubt in my mind that you would be an outstanding police officer. I miss you so much.

Tiffany,

A Grapevine Police officer was recently killed and I just wanted to ask you if you would tell him that I said hello and that he is missed. Many people are hurting as did when you left.

I now have two angels watching over me. Please keep me safe until I get to finally meet you.

I always think about you and you are not forgotten.

To the family of Tiffany, I just want you all to know that I will always remember Tiffany, even though I never got to meet her. I hope you got my card that I sent to you in 1999.

Just thought I would let you know that I was thinking of you again!
