My dearest uncle Al: All my thoughts & remembrances of you have always been filled with smiles and laughter. Fond are the memories of our countless coloring contests(you ALWAYS won!) & times when we marched in the band together at Port Gibson High & Alcorn State. Though your hearty chuckles, suave voice and Big Bear Heart will be sorely missed by all who knew you, I know that heaven is rejoicing as you take your rightful place among the countless saints! And I am also positive that they certainly welcomed that HANDSOME face of yours! I love you so much and will miss you . . . until we meet again, May God BLESS your soul! Love, Jan

Al, you were a humble and happy man. To the very end, you did was we expected of you. Your deep resounding voice will be missed in the halls of OPD and the airport. Rest in Peace my brother you have earned it! You will not be forgotten.

Officer Gordon, thank you for your service. Neither you, nor your sacrifice, will ever be forgotten. Watch over your family as they begin this long, dark journey without you giving them the love, guidance and support they will need.

I sincerely hope that the people that did this to you never see the light of day again.

Rest in peace Officer Gordon.

Last night, my aged computer on dial-up connection took its' usual ten minutes to load the home page of the O.D.M.P.. During most of this time, the only thing visable on the page was a listing for Orlando P.D., and no other information. And during that time, I cannot remember how many times I repeated my panic stricken prayer of "Please Lord, don't let this be Terry or April!". Once the information finally loaded, I learned with disgust that once more, I decent and caring person of courage has been robbed from us by evil cowards that our so called system of justice seems to care about far more than any of our law officers, or the citizens that they fight, bleed, and die to protect.

The words of MPO David McKinnon have spoken volumes here. As usual, with the full help of our media, society will be deluged with how sweet and innocent these gutless, maggot thugs are. How they are young and "disaadvantaged". And how it is not their fault. And how they need "therapy". And on that one, I do aggree with. I think the solution here, is what I call "Rope Therapy". And I for one, will be delighted to donate the rope.

To the family of Officer Gordon, my profound sympathies and condolances. May God somehow help you to endure this.

To the Orlando P.D., my sympathies, my condolances, and my admiration. It speaks volumes of the courage, the professionalism, and the character of our police professionals that these two murdering parasites made it into lockup alive. I honestly don't know where our police officers find the endurance and courage to show up for work every day. But I thank God that they do. May God watch over you all!

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

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

I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today. While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without 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'd 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'd always thought, I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for, So much left yet to do, it seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.

If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while, I'd 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 when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, my heart 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've promised you." Today your life on earth is past, but here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last, and since each day is the same way, there's no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things, you knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free. So won't you come and take my hand, and share my life with me

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart...

Rest easy my brother, your watch is complete. You fought the good fight, now watch over us all as we continue the battle in the names of all our brothers and sisters lost to tragedy and violence.

To Alfred's family: you are in my prayers...stay strong for eachother and know we are with you.

"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded." -- Maya Angelou

Aloha Officer Alfred L. Gordon, Sr.,
Thank you for your service and dedication to your community and your country. You and all officers that continue to lay your lives on the line and pay the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities and country safe, will NEVER be forgotten.

I believe in the ODMP and Police*Link that visionary and Founder Chris Cosgriff created. There is power in the written and spoken word, in prayer, in what is felt in the heart, and in the soul. Every tribute left in honor for a fallen officer, is a candle lit. Every candle lit, lights another.

Every light represents a reflection left by an individual in the form of a tribute which is and always will be, very personal and special to the fallen hero it was left to honor, and to thousands who will read it. Here we are able to come together and build a quilt for our fallen hero. A quilt built from people who share from their hearts in reflections; tributes.

Officer Alfred L. Gordon Sr.,
I wish you, your loved ones, and your fellow officers peace and love beyond all understanding. Aloha.

**May all who read this tribute find comfort in this Hawaiian prayer left in this hero's honor. You will NEVER be forgotten. May God allow you to rest in His eternal peace.**


Peace be with you, All My Peace,
O ka Maluhia no me oe, Ku'u Maluhia a pau loa,

The Peace that is " I ", the Peace that is "I am".
Ka Maluhia o ka "I", owau no ka Maluhia,

The Peace for always, now and forever and evermore.
Ka Maluhia no na wa a pau, no ke'ia wa a mau a mau loa aku.

My Peace " I " give to you, My Peace " I " leave with you,
Ha'awi aku wau I ku'u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku'u Maluhia me oe,

Not the world's Peace, but, only My Peace,
The Peace of " I ".

A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no,
Ka Maluhia o ka "I".
