Reflections for Police Officer George August Tessier, III

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.

Its Mardi Gras time again and I was sitting here thinking about the stuff we used to do. Seems like it was only yesterday we were working a detail together or something. Hope you're watching out for me. Troy

Hey Georgie Porgie---wanted to let you know I still miss ya a whole lot. Life has never been the same since you've been gone. I miss your daily calls and the SPQR license plate on the Caddy as you drove away from my house whenever you came to visit. Lots of folks still have a void in their lives since you've been gone...I'm sure you see the sign cousin Phil left by "Your Crescent" in New Orleans East. I know you're watching us and keeping us all safe. Hugs and Kisses from your FAVORITE cousin-Lynnie Winnie.

I cannot believe it's been 4 years already;I can still remember the phone call like it was yesterday.

Zach & I spent a week with your Mom & Susan last month, they are both doing good and we all miss you something horrible. Your sister thought you would get quite a kick out of the situation Faith and I are now in; just had another daughter 3 weeks ago. I tried to persuade Faith to use the name Tess but she only gave me a two choices to pick from so we named her Grace.

Missed your birthday the other day but it's been a really tough week and especially today as I reflect on your loss while I sit by my grandmothers bedside as she passes on to heaven to be with Jesus and my loved ones such as you. Tell her some of your great jokes and show her a good time, you always were the best host.

Continue to look over us all and we will keep your memory alive here my brother.


July 14, 2008

today is the day you died, my heart is still filled with the feelings of hurt and loss. i miss you soo so much. i passed the place where your accident happened twice this week and i cant help but break down. i think about you every day. Every time im in New Orleans it makes me want to be able to spend the day with you and i cant. god i miss you.

Never forgotten! I can't believe four years have pased since that fateful day. Your great sense of humor and big smile are greatly missed. It gives me comfort knowing you are with our fallen brothers and sisters watching over us. You and your loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers. We miss you brother.

Just dropping you a note to thank you for giving your all in service to your community & country.

Hey my boy!
Man, so much has been going on...but I am sure you have been watching. I could not think of a better person to be my Guardian Angel. Sometimes on the interstate I can almost feel you right there with me. I can still see your eyes from that morning...I'm sorry brother, my dad and I tried. Stay with me. Some of us still need you on the street. Love you, Brother. Baby Joe.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Man, how I still miss you George. I still laugh and have great memories on how much fun we had together. When Katrina hit, I wish you had been with us. Even in that gloomiest hour, you would have been a light shining, making others feel so much better.

You're 40 years old now. The legacy you left behind words alone can't describe, but we still think of you.

Love you and still miss you. :(

It is hard to believe that it has been over three years since your accident. I can't use the word gone, because you are always here in our thoughts, prayers, and memories.... I look forward to the day we can see each other again.....
