Reflections for Police Officer Wayne Pitt

Thank you, sir, for your dedication and service to your departments and communities. Several years ago, my first wife was on a school field trip and was standing beside the SUV and it jumped into gear. The driver's door was open and as it rolled forward in the parking space, she tried to get in and stop it. The door struck a tree which stopped the vehicle and crushed her between the door and frame. She was unable to be revived and died at the hospital, which was out of town. I was working that day and was driven by my Sgt. to the hospital, which is about an hour away. Things happen fast and unexpectedly! Thank you again, sir.

Here we are again paying tribute to one of our officers who gave his all to his job.
"DON'T GRIEVE FOR ME"
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path god laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turn my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Task left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Than 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,
My life's been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
I believe in God and believe I will see you again.
We send our deepest sympathies and our prayers and hope they can give you some sort of comfort through this difficult time.

Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.

"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.

They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.

The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.

They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.

To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?

They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.

Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
to many have been lost when gunshots ring out.

Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.

Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.

Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.

"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.

“Your tour of duty has ended,
we will take it from here...!!
