Reflections for Police Officer Peter Alan Grignon

No one will ever forget. Rebecca carries on your memory so beautifully. I know you're smiling down from Heaven, buddy. I just know you are.



March 1, 2006

It's so hard to lose the one you love
To finally have to say goodbye
You try to be strong but the pain keeps holdin' on
And all that you can do is cry
Deep within your heart you know it's time to move on
When the fairy tale that you once knew is gone

When the last tear drop falls
I'll still be holdin' on to all of our memories
And all of what used to be

When the last tear drop falls
I will stand tall
And know that you're here with me in my heart
When the last tear drop falls

So now I'm alone and life keeps movin' on
But my destination still unknown,
Will there be a time when I'll fall in love again?
Or was I meant to walk these streets alone
If there was just one wish I could be granted here tonight
It would be to have you right back by my side

Will the emptiness from missin' you..
ever end

February 26, 2006

Hey Pete. I just wanted to say hey is all. I miss you. We all miss you. And I just wanted to come here and say hey.

Thinking of you today and everyday...

February 17, 2006

Some of my plans got very messed up today, but I had to stop and remember you & Rebecca. God has said No pain is ever wasted and what Satan meant for harm, God will use for good... I don't know about everyone else, but I appreciate every single blessing x10 since your death... I don't get as easily stressed and I take things as they come. I think of Rebecca when I feel myself getting discouraged or upset about something silly.. We all miss you and thank you for showing me how precious life and love is.

Dear Rebecca:

I lost my husband in the line of duty two days after you lost your beloved Peter. I wanted to let you know that I was thinking of and praying for you. Reading his reflections, and seeing his picture - Peter must have been a wonderful man.

This is a very, very painful journey that none of us ever thought we would take. Some days I'm not sure if I have the strength to get through's so hard. Sometimes it seems like forever since I saw him, other times I feel like he was just here. I can't believe 10 months has passed.

I just wanted to take a moment to reach out to you and tell you that you are not alone. You are traveling this path with so many others. Our husbands are forever safe in the arms of the angels, walking Heaven's streets of gold. I know they are looking down on us, are guiding and protecting us as we continue on without them. We will see them again, but until then I will pray for you and your family as I pray for mine.

Officer Grignon, thank you for your service and sacrifice. May God bless you and may you rest in peace, Blue Angel.

Today as I look outside at all the snow and how pretty it is. I wondered if it snows in Heaven. Just think Peter knows, he knows what we all wonder. God promises us eternity of no sorrow or sadness and I am so exicted about that.

Losing someone is so terrible, but when you know if heaven is their final home you can't help but be happy and a little jealous....Just imagine


January 18, 2006

I know I asked you for snow but my goodness!!! I guess you sent so much to show how much you love and miss everyone, right? Thanks for the snow Pete, of course I'm sure you're warm & toasty up in Heaven!

Dear Officer Peter Grignon,

First off i would like to say, you were taking to early from this world, just because you did what you were suppose to do.
You are missed by both people that knew you and people that do know you and loved you.
God rest you soul cause many people who walk today are still trying to accept that fact that ur not here anymore, it's really hard to accept.
i never knew u but if i did i would have enjoyed every moment, it's even hard for me to accept the fact that you are gone, but i know one day we will be with our heavenly father and we will rejoice that there will be no more death, no more killings and all such, and i will be greatful to meet you, and have everlasting life with you as my brother.

Dear Peter,

I miss you so much. Your wisdom, your smile and the way you made me laugh. I still laugh sometimes when I think what you would say if you were here.
I know you are having a great time, I just wish I could be there with you.
I wish I could go back in time one year and be with you again. We had so much fun.
People have not forgotten you. I talk about you all the time. I even tell people who didn't know you what you were like:)
I love you and I am so grateful to have had you in my life. Please tell God to keep sending me dreams of you.
Keep an eye on Brian and Val's little girl.
Your loving wife,

Rebecca Grignon

Sometimes it's so hard. You'd think as time passes, it'd be easier, but it's not. It's just so hard.

Happy New Year Pete

December 31, 2005

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck


So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

Merry Christmas Peter & Rebecca.

I stumbled across officer Grignon's ODMP this morning and shed tears filled with both pain and hope.
Pain for your awful and grevious loss.
Hope for the life that lays ahead of those left behind without you Sir.
My daughter, 6 and my son, 3 each placed a star on our Christmas tree today and said a little prayer for our fallen brothers all over the world - as is our now tradition.
You were amongst them.
My wife and I are both police officers and know just how precious life is. We plan for the future - but live for the moment.
May God protect those left behind and give them the strength to move forward.
Be at peace. Godbless.

Anastacia - How Come The World..
Somebody told me
you were not coming home
the words are spinnin' in time
and the air suddenly went cold

The sun is still shining
but everything feels like rain,
and if I had one wish
it would be to see you again

Nothing's fair
when we lose
without a moment to say goodbye

How come the world won't stop spinning
now that you're gone
I know every end has beginnings
but this one's all wrong
so wrong, so wrong

Caught in the middle
wrong place, wrong time
and I'm hopelessly missing you
and I can't stop the night

nothing's fair anymore
and I know there's a better place
and I'll never stop dreaming of you

How can the seasons keep changing
since you disappeared
tell me how come the world won't stop
how come the world won't stop

Sweet tears are shed
this pain we lay to rest
it's hard lettin' go
but I keep movin' on
in a place I don't belong

How come the world won't stop spinning
now that you're gone
I know every end has beginning
but this one's all wrong
how can the seasons keep changing
since you disappeared
you're gone
how come the world won't stop

God is always there Rebecca. Merry Christmas.

How about you send us some snow? Just stopped in to say I was thinking of you and Becca. If it snows, I'll know you got my message :-) We miss you.

My First Christmas in Heaven
by Unknown
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart
But I am not so far away, we really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones, you know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do
For I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.

I am a dispatcher for LMPD and I can still remember exactly what I was doing on that traggic day..I was never able to meet Pete, but some how that did not help to make it feel any better it has definitly changed the way that I value my job and the honor and respect that I have for the responders...Pete you are and have always been a hero and I will never forget...The radio room and the officers and other responders may not always see eye to eye but there is an unspoken bond that goes deeper than anyone could imagine...RIP pete 216d 10-7 remainder...10-8 in heaven forever..

Dear Family, Friends, Co-Workers, and Loved Ones of P.O. Peter Grignon---

My sincere and deepest condolences to you all for the loss of an amazing man. I came to Peter's ODMP page because a friend of his left a condolence on Josh Blyler's ODMP page. I was engaged to Josh (EOW: 5.2.04). It was so encouraging to read the reflection from one of Peter's friends. I know that it has only been about 9 months since Peter's death. Know that you all will be in my thoughts and prayers, especially through the holidays. Reflect back on all the wonderful memories you shared with Peter and take comfort in those moments shared with him. They are precious beyond measure.

To Peter's wife, Mrs. Grignon---
My heart breaks for you. I know and understand the pain of losing the person you love most in this world. I cannot express in words how sorry I am to hear that you have lost your beloved husband. Just know that my heart goes out to you and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Continue to find comfort in the love you and Peter shared together. Remember that Peter is always with you because he is a part of you. His memory will forever live on inside the hearts of those he loved and those he touched. Know that when it seems that no one understands how you feel...I do. God bless you and your family. I'm sending you a hug from FL to KY. God bless...

When I think of Peter, I remember Pam Powell. She was like a 2nd mother to me. She and I were very close. She was helping me with college applications and guy trouble. When she was senselessy killed, I stared at her halloween party invitation for months, remembering our talks about make-up, costumes, guys, work, school... everything. This song reminds me of her... and I wanted to share it with all of you and you, Rebecca. I've never lost the man I love, but a piece of my heart cries with you and for you everyday. God bless everyone and have a safe holiday season

You Were Just Here - Jo Dee Messina
I woke up at 5 a.m.
Hearing your voice again
But it was just the TV
Coming from the other room

Your half empty coffee cup
Is sitting right where it was
I almost moved it last night
But it didn't feel right
It's too soon, it's too soon
It still feels like

You were just here
You were just holding me
I was alright
I never would have believed
That you'd go away
That you could just disappear
When you were just here

The calendar on the wall
Doesn't miss you at all
It still says you'll be there
With us all on christmas eve

The picture you hung last week
Keeps staring back at me
There we are still laughin'
Like nothin' ever happened
I still feel you in the air
It's not fair, it's not fair

I reach out and you're not there
But I still feel you everywhere
No matter how much I try
Or how hard I cry
It still feels like
You were just here

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

Officer Peter Grignon affected me very much. I am an EMT with a Fire Department in Sellersburg, IN. We all work in public service and that could at any time be one of us. Firefighters, Paramedics/EMT's, or Police Officers. We do a job that is fundamentally dangerous. Officer Grignon was responding to a routine call and a very unfortunate set of events took his life far too early. I never met Pete, but I heard what a good man, officer, and husband he was. I heard how much he deeply loved Rebecca and you all seemed to have what every couple wants. He was a fellow public servant and husband. Our wives deal with so much stress and they are there. They know that the end of our tour may come too early. You take precautions and try to get home and do the best job. Officer Peter Grignon is on my mind everyday. I carry his obituary in my wallet everyday to remind me of the meaning of public service. Officer Grignon paid a high price in the name of service to our city and our profession. Nothing but Love.

I hope you had the time of your life.

Though I never met you, I find myself thinking a lot about you and your family these days. You gave the ultimate sacrifice and from what I've heard, were a very unselfish man. You are and will be missed. Rest in peace.
