Merry Christmas Cristy.

Cristy...almost a year now. Doesn't seem like it's been that long, but in my heart I've been missing you more and more. It seems like an eternity until I'll see you again. I just live knowing that you're up in Heaven guiding me through all of my lifes decisions. May you rest in peace. You'll always be in my heart.

someone missing you much

December 26, 2005

I can remember the person you were before you joined the Ploice Department and remember the troubles you went through. You were very strong and very capable of anything. We lost touch until about a year before your death. It was New years 2003 and I was so pleased you were doing the work you loved but most of all, I was so happy that you found someone to spend your life with. I remember the happiness you showed when you introduced me to Amanda and I instantly knew your life was much better. Thank you to Amanda for making Chris happy and loving her the way she deserved!

Long time friend...

Happy Birthday Criss...
I miss you so much it hurts more and more everyday.

October 13, 2005

I just want to let you know I think of you daily. Each night I put on my uniform I put your picture in my shirt pocket, under my badge but over my heart.

Watch over us.

June 28, 2005

For a sister officer, thank you for your service and sacrifice. It is obvious by the other memories shared of you here, that you are very loved and respected. My condolences go out to Cristy's family, friends and her department. Please know that all of her brothers and sisters in blue grieve with you.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me...

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see

If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me

I wish so much you would not cry the way you did today

While thinking of the many things we did not get to say

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you

And each time that you think of me, please try to understand

That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand

And said my place was ready, in Heaven far above

And that I would have to leave behind all those I dearly love

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye

For all my life, I had always thought, I did not want to die

I had so much to live for, so much left to do

It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you

I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had

If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile

I would say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile

But then I fully realized that this could never be

For emptiness and memories would take the place of me

And then I thought of wordly things I may miss come tomorrow

I thought of you, and when I did, my head was filled with sorrow

But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home

When God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne

He said this is eternity, and all I have promised you

Today your life on Earth is past, but here is where life starts anew

I can promise you no tomorrow, but today will always last

And since each day is the same way there is no longing for the past

You have been so faithful, so trusting, and so true

Though there some time you did some things you knew you shouldn't do

But you have been forgiven and now you are free

So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?

So when tomorrow starts without me, do not think we are far apart

For each time that you think of me, I am right here in you heart

1 corintians 13:4-8

4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; 5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends

Officer Tindall, thank you for your service and dedication. You will be missed and never forgotten. May your family, life-partner, and everyone who loves you stay strong in the memories and love you shared with them.

I lost my fiancée, Scott Stewart, in August of 2002. There not a day that goes by without him in my heart and mind. I understand the pain your love must feel from being ripped from you to soon. The support and love from others who understand have helped tremendously.

To your love, if you ever feel the need to reach out please contact me along with other fiancee’s and significant others. A search on yahoo groups will bring you to us. Just enter the below as it is.

I’m so sorry you and Cristy’s family had to join our “survivor” family.

Always remember as long as your heart beats Cristy will be with you. He’s there everyday in your heart.

I read Cristy's memorial and saw where she left behind her parents along w/ a "life partner." I too have a life partner who is in law enforcement and has been for 15 years.Although I know she has had some of the best training possible,I worry every night that the unthinkable might happen. I would just hope and pray that her brother's and sister's in blue would support me the way Cristy's have supported her partner. RIP Cristy and watch over those who protect and serve!!!!!

The day after you passed I went to visit Amanda. I met your mom, sister,and stepdad, all beautiful people. Amanda explained to your family who I was (that crazy squirrel lady). We spoke of how I had tried to save Bailey's smallest baby. I told Amanda and your family that I was currently raising another bottle baby (a puppy who was then 2 weeks old). Well, that puppy is now a healthy and happy 13 week old yellow labrador. I decided to name her in your honor. "Tindall's Polar Express" or "Tindy". She is such a joy. Every day she makes me laugh, smile, and sometimes pull my hair out. Seeing her every day will ALWAYS make me remember YOU. From the days when she is good to the days when I catch her drinking out of the toilet....I will think of YOU. Girl, you left behind a huge hole to fill. And for me, having that little puppy helps. I miss you............

I will never forget you. Your B11 will always think of you. Rest in peace and AMEN for all you have done.

Hey Cristy,

I come to this site almost daily wondering if the pain and hurt will go hasn't, it won't. It's hard to make sense of any of this. I wonder why all the good people, like you, are taken from us. Why are we left with the grouchy, insecure, hateful and miserable people? Don't get me wrong, I don't wish bad things upon anyone, but I wonder why is it the people that are making a difference, the people that bring joy to the world are the one's that are taken from us? You were one of those people Cristy.

It's just not fair.

Please watch over us. We need your guidance.

March 3, 2005

To my sister in blue,

May God bless you and keep you. When you died a part of all of us died with you. But know that both this world and police service are the better for having had you in them.

Hi there Criss,

Well I've come to accept that nothing will be the same and many of us will never recover from you leaving us...including myself. But we as your friends and fellow officers are your family... as you have told me time and again. We have to adjust to a new life and a new future. But you made us who we are...and what we are doing and where we are going. As such we are your legacy. What we do reflects upon you from now until we join you on heaven's force. Any ill will toward Jason I know is not matter how much it hurts. He never meant what happened to happen...and was only trying to please you. I will look after your recruit. I will see that he succeeds and is given a fair chance at this career as I know you would have wanted. As hard as it is for me....and others, I know what needs to be done....and what you would have wanted. I will make sure it is done. I trusted you with my problems, my most intimate secrets, and my life. You trusted me with yours....and still do. And the jokes you still play upon us are a welcome had a great sense of humor..(the drive thru incident still isn't fair but funny has hell.) Love you more than you know Criss. Everyday hurts...

February 21, 2005

Well, its been over 6 weeks now. No, things aren't back to "normal", but they never will be with out you. Jason has been working light duty in training for a couple of weeks, and is due to hit the streets again in a few more weeks. As you would have wanted, we'll support him and help him be the kind of Officer you wanted him to be. I can only hope that we, as a whole, can help him measure up to the standards you set for him. Hell, it'll take everyone on 3rd and 4th shift to fill your shoes. But, don't worry, we'll complete what you started and Jason will make you proud. We all will! That's a promise!

Ride Along

So you don’t like the ticket I just gave you.
Well, come take a ride with me.
A trip to the scene of an accident.
Where a person now struggles for freedom, and for life.
All because someone was in a hurry, or late for work.

You say you didn’t call me and you don’t need my help.
That this is a family matter and none of my business.
Come take a ride with me.
Where a child now cowers in the nearest corner, or bedroom closet.
They cover their ears and ask god “ please make them stop”.
Still think no one needs my help.

You’ve said all we do is eat donuts and drink coffee.
Come take a ride with me.
On the countless days after taking four calls in an hour.
We think we have time to sit down for dinner.
Only to be call away again.

You think we’re cold and have no heart.
Well, come take a ride with me.
To a place where the pipes now lay to rest.
A brother or sister who gave their life, for someone like you.
A place where tears fall like rain for their family,
For our family, and yes even for you.
Yeah, come take a ride with me.
