Reflections for Inspector Raymond Joseph Giacomelli

Sir, I am thinking about you today. I had less than a year on the job when we met. Today is my ten year anniversary. I have made investigator (detective) and just completed homicide school. I think about you all the time and I know you are near when I am in danger. I considered you a guardian angel then and continue to do the same. Thank you.

Long time since high school, different class but remember you well. Many of our fellow school mates entered law enforcement but you are the only one that I am aware of who lost his life doing the job. Now nine years later, I say rest in peace to let others take the charge. You served us all well.

My thoughts are with you and your daughters. I will never forget the sacrifice your husband made on this day six years ago, and the sacrifice your family continues to make in his absence. We are forever in debt to you all and I find solace in that Ray and Larry are forever watching over the guys at PPD.

I wish you peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to our community.

Time never diminishes respect or love. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Your legacy continues in the wonderful family you have left, your beautiful wife Maria and lovely daughters, and now a grandson Joseph. Your family has been so much support to ours as they have been on this path two years and one week longer than we have. I think Christina and Jessica will always be a part of Cody's life for they will always have a bond of losing their father in the line of duty.

Rest In Peace, Ray.
