Yesterday we laid you to rest. It had to been one, if not the, hardest day of my life. You would have been so proud of how Ben and Patty handled themselves while speaking so highly of you. Now, in just a few hours, we are going to lay to rest your friend that you gave your life for. I can't believe that we aren't going to see you again on this earth. It's going to be hard to wait, but I will see you soon. We all love you. After our horrible week as a department, please watch over all the officers and keep them safe.

To the Wolfe Family,
I just wanted to say I know your pain if there was anything I could do I would but by being so for away there is nothing more to do but a prayer I can say and you can be sure that will be done for all. And please remember you have an angel up there watching, guiding, and protecting he is now walking his beat on a much safer street one made of gold and he is always offered 2 safe hands to hold hands that are offered by God above that will hold him always with lots of love so until you meet again and you will you can be sure he is protected and doing God's will.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

"Heaven Called It's Hero's Home"

There's a reason I cried
When I heard two officers had died
The reality hit hard in the life that we live
To a job where people are asking you to constantly give
Two of the finest today paid the ultimate price
And with pride and honor made their greatest sacrifice
The public has no idea on a day to day, what you went through
And how many lives that are now touched, the killer never knew
How you sometimes went to work, with very little sleep,
Duty and honor, a vow you must keep
And like most officers you were most likely underpaid
But it's a job you loved, the one for which you were made
To protect and serve, is how you lived your lives
My heart goes out to your now widowed wives
It's a knock on the door every officer's spouse fears
And that's why today my eye's are filled with tears
Our thoughts and prayers are for the families that will be without
A father, a husband, a brother who will be missed beyond doubt
Heaven called two of your finest home today
A price anyone who loves an officer hopes they will never pay
Lord, Watch over each and every unsung hero we pray
So they can be with the ones they love at the end of their day.
In loving memory of
Officer Jason Wolfe #7215
Officer Eric White #7275

When it seems hardest to pray, that is when we should pray the hardest.

When grief is the freshest, words should be the fewest.

A Police Officer's Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage -
Courage to face and conquer my own fears...
Courage to take me where others will not go...

I ask for strength -
Strength of body to protect others,
and strength of spirit to lead others...

I ask for dedication -
Dedication to my job, to do it well,
Dedication to my community, to keep it safe...
Give me, Lord, concern for those who trust me,
and compassion for those who need me...
And please, Lord, through it all,
be at my side.

My heart goes out to the family, friends, and co-workers. It is so horrible to have lost one fellow officer, husband, father, son and brother but to have lost two is even worse. Keep in mind you are not alone and that they are both in a better place. For whatever reason God must have needed the service of these two men and they will always be in your hearts and spirits. God Bless you all.

A Sioux Prayer

Grandfather, Great Spirit, you have always been, and before you nothing has been. There is no one to pray to but you. The star nations all over the heavens are yours, and yours are the grasses of the earth. You are older than all need, older than all pain and prayer.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, all over the world the faces of living ones are alike. With tenderness they have come up out of the ground. Look upon your children, with children in their arms, that they may face the winds and walk the good road to the day of quiet.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, fill us with the light. Give us the strength to understand and the eyes to see. Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.

Just wanted to take the time express my thoughts and prayers to the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Wolfe on their loss. Although I have never met Officer Wolfe, I have met members of the Phoenix Police Department through the National Public Safety Football League. I was impressed by the members of the PPD for their spirit of competition on the field and brotherhood off the field. I will be in Phoenix during April of next year and I will pay proper respects to Officer Wolfe during that time. For now I can only think of how the world is a better place due to people like Officer Wolfe, who gave their lives for the betterment of the community.

May GOD bless your family and friends at this terrible time. Thank you for serving and protecting, Sir. Rest in peace!

Pride Integrity and Guts

Some of you may know my face, but not my name. Most of you have seen me around the city and some have even met me, but not always under the best of circumstances. Some of you have even spoken to me on the phone, when you called me while I was working.

Most of you have an opinion on how my job should be done, but would never take my job if it was the last one on earth. And some of you who don't even know me, hate me because of my job. But when I go to my job, I go to make a difference and so I can fight what everyone else fears.

When most would be running away from danger, my job requires me to run towards it. I do this in the hopes of making a difference for someone else I don't even know. Most people say I make too much money, because my pay is published in the newspaper. But don't think twice about hearing about another sports player sign a 20 million dollar contract for 6 months a year of playing a "game."

Since my job's base pay isn't the best I must work extra to pay the bills. Including working extra shifts on holidays, and pick up side work at construction sites as well on my days off, most still complain thinking I am greedy, but don't they realize that I to must pay taxes, have a mortgage car payments and kids in collage as well?

Don't they understand that I am not paid for what I do, but for what I am willing to do for them? After all how can you properly compensate someone to risk their own life and face danger everyday they go to work?

And when I go to work I am punched, kicked, spit on and called every name in the book for doing my job. And every night I leave my house to go to work I realize I may not come back home in the morning. Because when I go to work I can be stabbed, shot, drown, fall, be electrocuted, or die in a car accident rushing to help you.

My job also requires me to carry special "tools" to help me do my job. Sometimes even while doing my job I have to defend myself from someone attacking me. Although, the newspapers will report to you that I "beat someone down", and not that I defended myself from an attack.

While at work I must also carry a gun to protect you, but should I have to use it, the media reports to you that I "gunned someone down" or that I "shot and killed" somebody, and not that I defended myself. Don't they realize that I shoot to live and never to kill?

Also when I go to work I wrap a protective vest around me to help keep me safe through my shift. I use this vest so that I will be allowed to live to the end of my work day. And hope and pray that should something bad happen that this vest helps keep me alive so that I will be allowed to see my children grow.

When I go to my job, I will see more pain, sorrow, agony, death and destruction in one month than most of you will see in an entire lifetime.

And to the ones who don't know me, I unforunetly will meet most of you at the worst times in your life.

You often will call me to come help you out with a problem. But if you have a really big problem you can get me at a special 3 digit number and me and my coworkers will race to your house, just to help you no questions asked. All you have to do is call and we will be there for you, no matter what time, day, night or holiday, rain shine or blizzard.

Sometimes my job also requires me to deliver lectures, babies and even bad news. I am also the one required to ring your doorbell in the middle of the night, swallow hard and advise you that a loved one will not be coming home tonight, then I spend the rest of my shift wondering why I ever took such a job.

Some people even refer to me as a "pig," but when I hear that word called to me or one of my coworkers I think of Pride, Integrity and Guts, which everyone in my profession needs to do this job.

Me and my coworkers must be able to have muscles of steel, have a sense of humor and put ourselves into dangerous situations and face danger head on all in a days work.

We must act in a second and make a decision in the blink of an eye, and spend the rest of our life hoping we made the right choice in that split second. If not we can be arrested and charged with breaking a law, be sued for violating someone's rights, or end up with even a worse fate.

My job requires me to take an oath to be their and to risk my life to protect you. And it is an oath that me and my fellow coworkers have taken and is one that we will not break.

What, you ask is my job, I am your local police officer. And what do I ask in return of doing all this and risking my life for you, nothing at all because it is my job and my hope, of being the one who makes the difference.
