Oh how I wish you were here to celebrate your birthday today. I would have spared no expense to celebrate the dreaded big 40 with you.

Can't begin to tell you how much I still think of you on a daily basis, couldn't even sleep last night knowing it was the eve of your birthday and thinking about all the fun we had over the years. Stayed with your Mom and Susan back in March, Susan and I went to Tony Roma for dinner one night and were laughing about how you and I would go from one Tony Roma to another for the free birthday meal. Three years gone and you are still cracking me up and making me tear up at the same time.

You are not forgotten and you are still my best friend.

I love ya brother!

Hey Little Brother,

Just can't seem to shake you from my mind. Everytime I close my eyes I see you. I know you are in a better place, but that doesn't make it easier. I love and miss you more than any words could ever say. Until we meet again....

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.

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.


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.

Just checking on you Georgie my boy. I was just thinking about all the fun and laughs we had at work and at the House of Blues detail. Everytime I work that detail I think of you and although I can't see you, I know your still there. SPQR.

See ya later,

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.

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,
