Reflections for Detective Todd Michael Fatta

You may no longer be with us in a physical presence yet your Spiritual being will be all around.

It will be there for the quiet comfort to your parents and family.

It will be there in the car seat in the unit next to those who need the silent back up or even sitting on their shoulder.

You have another assignment to handle now......go forth.....

Peace and Serenity

Don't grieve for me,for no I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
Mt life's been full, I've savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up hearts and share with me,
for God wanted me noe, He set me free.

To the Friends and Family of Detective Todd Fatta;
I worked with Todd on several occassions and there are not enough words to describe how great he was. I will miss him.
My prayers go out to you in your time of sorrow. He will never be forgotten and he will forever be missed.
God's speed Todd
