Reflections for Police Officer Stephen R. Jerabek

Sorry I haven't been on here to talk to you. I know that you were pretty excited when you got to see my mom on Aug 18, 2013 when she joined you and grandma and grandpa and other family members. Even though living without her is challenging for me I am glad to know that she has reunited with you guys. I love you and miss you and please tell my mom that I really miss her and lover her and still cry everyday but Im ok.

Steve, I still miss hearing you holler "Tina Renee" whenever you'd see me at the Fabulous Fox or the Czech Hall. You were such a larger than life personality and had a real zest for living which you tried to pass on to everyone you met. You are sorely missed!

I will be at the Memorial Mass that will be held for you on March 3 in your honor...Happens to be the SouthSide Indian Ball Club Dinner as well.. how Ironic uh I guess you will be busy showing your spirit in both places. I Love You!!! I always cry as I get on this page.

First off I want to thank you for pulling off "the good weather request" It was suppose to rain all day but yet it didn't. We had another good golf tournament in your honor. I hope you felt the same. I love you and miss you. I will talk to you soon. The family isn't really hip to this page but thats OK. I like to think of it as "our time" ... Susey

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I haven't spent a lot of time this year reading the memorials of the fallen officers, mainly because it saddens me that so many great men and women have fallen. It's a terrible thing that so many great lives were cut so short. As a fallen officer survivour, my heart goes out to all those that knew and loved Officer Jerabek. Know that you are not alone in this journey that you walk and that Stephen will not be forgotten here in Winnipeg.

Officer Jerabek, thank you for helping to make this world a safer place. If you run into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a hug for all of us down here. It's been just over four years and we still miss him terribly.

Wishing you brighter and better days,
