Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer George August Tessier, III

Well the SEASON is upon us once again and you are missing in action. I can't begin to tell you how much you are missed, especially during this time of year.

Mom and I are not the only ones that miss you Baby Boy, your friends and extended family reflect on your life as much as we do. It is evident that you have a left a large hole in our hearts.

This is not the time of year that I should be sad, but I can't help but fill up when I think about you. You were a large part of my life and no one could ever fill that void. I just want you to know that you were, are and always will be loved. I know that you knew the bond between us was extremely strong, I only wish that I could tell you I love you once again...

Merry Christmas "Little Brother" until we meet again.

It has been over 2 years since your tour of duty ended and I know your loved ones have thought of you each and every day. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten as heroes never die. Keep watch over all your loved ones and those still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line.

Coo Coo Coo,

Two years havee already passed. Man it just don't seem like your not with us anymore! You know it's kind of like a long vacation or lengthy business trip you went on. I can't wait till you get back.

Everyday of my life I look at the memories of you and I together plastered all over the walls in my home/office. Your pictures are hanging proudly among the rest of my family. After all my boy, I always did consider you a member of my family. Funny how things are, Nicholas constantly reminds me of the last message you left on my voicemail. It was you saying, "Coo Coo Coo, call me back man!"
Boy, you just don't know how much I wish I would have called you back the night before you were taken from us.


Love, Luck, & Laughter.............

I e-mailed Scott after I read his reflection. You and he could not have been any closer if you were brothers. Donald sent out an e-mail for everyone to say a prayer on this second anniversary of your death.

I miss you Baby Boy. Your love and laughter rings in my heart and my head. No one could ever take your place. You will eternally be my Baby Brother.

Love,

Sue

Happy 39th Birthday Jorge!

In honor of your birthday I watched your favorite movie again. Never caught my attention previously but during this viewing one particular line by Maximus struck me as especially true of you.

"WHAT WE DO IN LIFE ECHOES IN ETERNITY"

You had such a charismatic personality, and impacted the lives of so many people, that you can rest assured that the memory of George Tessier lives on in each of us; as well as with the people whom we share our stories of you with.

Those of us privileged enough to call you a friend will never stop celebrating your birthday or mourning you’re EWO anniversary.

Your passing has left a void in all our lives, and there is not a day that passes in which you are not in my thoughts, but I take comfort in the knowledge that we will see you again some day, continue to watch over us all until then.

I love ya brother,

Happy 39th Birthday Little Brother,

That hole you left in my heart just can't seem to be filled. July is just not the month for me anymore. It used to be we celebrated a lot of birthdays and anniversaries. Funny how time and events has made such a change in my life.

You are on my mind all the time, but today I just couldn't shake you. I told quite a few stories to co-workers of your off-colored behavior. Only you could have done such things and gotten away with it. We sure did laugh at some of your antics. I guess what I love is the fact that you never considered the consequence. I kind of wish I had that part of your spirit, because that part of you will live on in everyone who ever knew and loved you...Family and Friends.

Today you would have been 39, and Friday the 14th you will be gone two years. I love you more than life itself and know that there will be a day when we will meet again. Until that time comes, you will live on in my heart and my soul.

Love,

Sue

CooCooCooo,

You know Georgie it's kind of funny how rarely a day goes by when for some crazy reason the thought of you crosses my mind. We shared so many memories together. From the most serious to some of the hedious. If I have said it once, I have said it a million times...I wish my boy Georgie was still here! The trips we planned, the ideas we shared, not to mention the dreams we hoped for.

I can write to you for hours reflecting on the times that were the most important to both of us, but I won't. Instead, I'll continue to drop in to check on you, and every now and then I'll even add a comment or two.

Love, Luck & Laughter to ya my brother,

Everyday at 5:00 A.m., I remember George. That was the time he would call me to wake me up so I wouldn't be late to roll call as I always was. I had a special ring tone on my cell phone leting me know that my boy was waking me up. Usually the first words out of his mouth was "Wake up my chalupa Gay lover is time to go and make big Al's life misserable". know that his no longer with us my cell phone still goes off at 5:00 A.m., with the same ring tone (the days that I have to work the day watch) which reminds me that if it wasn't for George I would still be sleeping and big Al coursing At me for being late.

Over a year has passed and we still miss you!! I met you when I came out of the academy and was riding with your pal "Smelly Cat". I had the pleasure of knowing you and laughing at your off-color jokes. My brother-in-blue, we will met again someday.

I can still remember the last day I saw you, it was July 11. We had a party for your birthday. That when you told me "Kerry, you always be my first". I always tought you were funny. Like the time you went to my school fair and you were hitting on my friend, Mark. I miss George and I will never forget you. I wear your EOW bracelet all the time. That's when people say,"What's that". That's when I tell them the story. God bless you, George.

Jorge

Years of tradition is over, instead of picking out a smutty or insulting birthday card for you I ordered flowers for your grave today.

You always did have extravagant taste; do you know how hard it is to find those "fire & ice" roses you liked. Had to order them from CA, only confirms my assement that you were a "metrosexual".

You still are and shall always remain the best friend I've ever had, I loved you more than a brother and look forward to the day we meet again.

Do you think they will complain about us acting like kids when we get together there too?

All right gotta go now, starting to get teared up thinking about you and how much I miss you in my life.

Happy 38th!

Love ya,

Happy birthday my brother! Man I miss you so much. Not a day goes by when a memory of you will cross my mind. George, as long as I live I hope that you stay right by my side. You know, you can be my ange/little devil on my shoulder! I can hear you now: "C'mon cousin, it won't hurt!" or "Baby Joe, you little queen, are you crazy?!?" SPQR always.

Officer Tessier,

I thank you for your service to the law enforcement community. You gave 10 years of you life to protect and serve the citizens of New Orleans, and for this I commend you. I no longer reside in New Orleans, but you served during the time that I did, so your service kept me safe each and every day.

Your duty and memory will leave an indelible mark in the lives of many that knew you personally or that simply read this site.

I am proud of you for the profession that you chose. We do what we love, knowing the danger within, but to do anything else would be a life not lived. You served with dignity, pride and respect.

We all have a time and a place, that is the mystique of this life, but you left sooner than we anticipated, but you and your family can hold your head up high.
May your mother, sister and extended family take comfort in knowing this and when the sad times come, may they be overshadowed with wonderful memories and moments that time cannot erase.

Rest in Peace My Brother,

George,

I have been to sites and thought about writing and was not able to. Not because I couldn't but, I couldn't think of any words that could describe how I felt and still feel about you. I met you my first day in the police academy and we became friends from then on. We went through good and bad times and shared some things I don't think are appropriate for this site, because your Mom may one day read this. Anyway, we are fast approaching a year and I wanted you to know that not a day goes by that I don't think of you or something we did together or were planning to do. My family misses you and also have not forgotten about you. I miss you and feel a loss each and every day of my life. I believe you are up there and know that we have not forgotten about you and with the anniversary of your death nearing, we have a special night in the works, something only we, some of your closest friends can and would do. I know if you were here on earth with us, it would still be happening and you would be right in the mix with us. Until we meet again, remember I miss and love you like a brother.

Coo Coo Cooo,

When ya comin home my boy? In the past 12 months, there have been entirely too many reminders of the fond memories you and I shared together in this life.

"Oout of sight but not out of mind" is part of my everyday life since you have been gone. Rarely a time in a conversation, when your name comes up, that Nicholas dosen't remind me that I should have returned your call on the night before your death. Cousin, I just thought it was a little too late to call you back, After all I knew you needed that beauty rest, and I would just speak to you the next day. No big deal! I never dreamed that you would be taken from us so quickly. I know you understand, that's the kind of guy you are. I can't remember how many times you would yell and scream at me and say "call me back man!" Now I wish I would have.

Anyhow, how have you been? What's going on up there? How's the weather? You keeping everybody straight?

You know Gerogie, we are fast approaching that dreadful day when you were transcended into a place where we shall all meet again. I can't begin to tell you how sadly you are missed. Man, you have no idea how many lives you touched with that magnetic personality of yours as you traveled through this life. You should be proud.

It is such a joy to have people who knew that you and I were best friends remind me of the type of person you were. It just strenghtens my beliefs in what I saw in you as a friend (family). I don't think I could ever hold anyone as close to me as I did you.

Love, Luck, & Laughter,

Your pal forever,

Johnny

Hey Tess--I'm just finding out about this site. I didn't get to see you much after you left the OPCSO, but when Mardi Gras came around I always got to see you. We didn't get to talk long because I was working an escort for a dance team so we had to keep moving. It was a wonderful 2 minutes of you fussing me for not keeping in touch lol. You were a great and funny guy to be around. Remember the water guns LOL. Watch my back bro. Rest in peace Tess ---we all miss ya!!

I miss you Little Brother more than words can say. I miss the laughter and the love, the way you would end each telephone conversation with, "I love you Sister, give the Old Lady a kiss for me." I miss the calls to tell me a "good one", and the countless e-mails that you would send. I miss your smile and your wit. I will miss your birthday card this year telling me and anyone who might read the envelope how old I am.

During NPW, I listened to your name at the roll call and I rubbed my fingers over your name in the wall. I quess it was then that I realized the terrible nightmare that I have relived over the past ten months was not a dream after all, but in fact was reality.

July 14, 2004, will live in my mind for the balance of my days. I want you to know that the void in my life created by your untimely death has surpassed any loss that I have experienced thus far in my lifetime. I never thought that was possible until now. If I could change places with you I would do so gladly. You had so much to give, and so much life ahead of you.

I know that I should not ask questions, and I won't. Not because I shouldn't, but because there is no answer that I could receive that would suffice. Nothing said could make me understand or accept your death, it will always be senseless. Each day I see those that kill, steal, and committ countles crimes against society, yet you were snatched from our mists. It seems so unfair.

Little Brother I want you to know that your friends and family will never let you be forgotten. You are embedded in our minds, our souls, and our hearts. Not a day goes by that you are not thought about. Lynn and I always speak about you, and she constanly has close encounters with you. She is always telling me how you make your presence known to her. She loved you like a brother, I am sure that you knew that.

I know that you are patrolling the heavens. You earned your wings on earth, and I know when you arrived on the other side, a larger set was waiting for you. I pray that you are at peace and happy.

You were always my heart and soul, my sunrise and sunset, and everything in between. You were not just my little brother, you were my child, and my best friend. I was supposed to take care of you and protect you, and the fact that I could not protect you from this tragedy will always haunt me. Through all of my heartache and tears, there is only one thing that does make sense to me and gives me comfort, and that is the fact that you died doing what you truly loved doing, being a COP. Many people live their lifetime working at a job because they have no choice. You chose your profession and served proudly.

Little Brother, I love you and I miss you. Until we meet again give the rest of the family that met you when you crossed over my love, and tell them that they are all missed. Keep the heavens safe and watch over all of us who are here. When the time comes, I expect you to meet me on the other side with open arms, that smile and "good one", until then...

Love,
Your Big Sister
