Reflections for Police Officer George August Tessier, III

It's been a while. I remember your memorial service, you'd a laughed at how intimidated I felt by being around so many police in one room. You always had something good to say and I miss the stories of crazy stuff ya never really hear about. I still have the prayer card from the service in my workspace at the shop. I think about your friendship whenever I pass it.

Here I am working another Jazz Fest, and I keep thinking all the fun times we had here together. From watching you smoke that huge cigar (what a laugh) and just goofing around. Good times.

How much I still miss you. So many times I'm telling a story about my past and it always seems to come to you. You were a bright light in my life, and great friend, and a true brother to us all. I thank God that you were in my life, no matter what.

Love you and miss you.

Today was a hard day, Wendy, Kali, Alissa, Brad and myself came to see you, and I tell you, the feeling all came back to me. Then and even now that I write this, and to tell you the truth I could hear you talking to me again. Someone comes because I see new flowers and I see they finally put your name on the face of the tomb. I felt you looking over us, it was a GREAT feeling. Still wishing you were here...... I do miss you my friend.

As I sit here and type, I think back to THAT DAY and the pain slowly creeps in. Then I feel the pain of losing someone that was not just close to me but to my wife and kids who also love and miss you dearly.

Guess I am one of the few that drives pass that spot every morning, so every morning I get the honor of saying “Wish you were here.” Well another year without you but you are in my thoughts every minute of the day.
It’s kind of sad, in death you see your true friends come together.

It’s been said, you had this circle around you and only a few had access to it, only a few that we call friends kept that circle close.

In time we will meet again.

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. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Six years ago today myself and another nurse stoped at the scene of this accident. I'm sorry we couldn't save you George. I still think about you & your family. Karla Swims

You are not forgotten my Brother. I can not believe it has been six years since your passing. You are missed very much and thought of often. I dedicated our roll call today in your honor. Until we meet again, peace my brother.

Can't believe it's already been 6 yrs since you were so unexpectedly taken from us Jorge. As the years have passed the pain of losing you has gradually subsided but your memory hasn't. Not a day passes when you are not in my thoughts and Faith and I are constantly reminded of the fun times we had together. You still remain my greatest friend and brother.

How I still miss you so much! As we ushered in a new decade, it still seems so empty without you. You still are a part of me that I will never let go no matter what. God bless you!

As we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I'm thinking about you brother. Sitting here pondering what tomorrow would bring if you were still with us & I have no doubt you would have little Tess's running around wreaking havoc & tearing the wrapping from their presents and you would be the biggest kid in the room..

It has been said that friends are family we pick. Well George was a part of a lot of families. He was a character alright, however, he was a true friend. I had not known him for very long when he gave me his number and said "if you need anything, just give me a call." Well, when I called him, he usually came through. So imagine the shock, the heartache, the pain of losing someone so close to me. (I called his cell about 1 pm on 7/14/2004, just to hear his voice.) He was our brother, our uncle, our confidant, a true blue friend, the one family member we chose.

I still see signs of George all around us, in photos we have, things he gave us, even the emblem he designed for the baseball team. (I saw that in an advertisement at the recent food show in New Orleans.)

Mere words can not express the way we feel. We miss George very much.

If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane,
We would walk all the way to Heaven, to bring you home again
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye
You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why
Our hearts ache in sadness, and secret tears will flow
What is meant to lose you, no one will ever know!

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves lives a memory no one can steal"

5 years today, how can it be that long already? The void still exists as greatly today as it did on that fateful day when God took you from us. You still are, and forever will be, missed my brother & I hope you know how thankful I am for all the memories.

It's almost your birthday again. How I still miss you George. You were a true friend and more importantly, a brother. I still miss the fun we had together. You really touched my life, and it still hurts not having you here with us.

Brother George,
I think back to my days with the NOPD and see you in the 8th District Station for shift change, or at the house of blues. The city lost a great cop that day and many of us lost a great friend. That phone call still hunts me to this day. I guess its true only the good do die young.... Thanks for everything, miss u brother. john nelson LSP-F

Hey George,
i was just thinking about the times you and i would work on bourbon in plan clothes together. and the time some guy wanted to fight you because he ran into you. that was until he found out we were cops. the look on that guys face when you told him was priceless. i will always remember the humor you brought to the station. when i would hear people laughing i just knew you were nearby. i remember the night you found your dog and my father and i saw you that same night. that was the first time your path would cross with him. years later you were the officer to be there for my dad in his time of need and i never got the chance to tell you thank you. you were the saving grace for him. thanks for everything, the memories, the friendship, the laughter.....thanks!!

It's Fat Tuesday, watched the news tonight and the coverage of Mardi Gras brought back great memories. I've not returned for one since you were killed, and I never will because it's just not Mardi Gras without you there.

Faith & I still laugh about that little incident when the Cops film crew was riding with you.

Your constantly in our thoughts, keep looking out for us brother. God knows we need angels like you with the current administration we have running the country.
