"His Final 10-42"

In Memory:
~ Mike Triplett ~
Deputy Sheriff
Washington County Sheriff’s Office
Potosi, ( Mo)
November 29, 2007

His days always began with a "10-41",
he was always ready to take on more crime.
The same routine for the past two years,
but he got used to it over time.

Day in and day out he gave it
his all and he did his best.
Never stopping to think that this could be
the last time he straps on his bulletproof vest.

Another day passes and once again
he has protected and served.
But never once really getting
the full recognition he deserved.

He had a full life but there was
so much left for him to do.
But on November 29, 2007, "271" made
his Final "10-42"

We Love you Mike Triplett, our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God Bless
Love Jimmie "G", & Carolyn

Triplett has always been an inspiration to me. He overcame numerous odds and was always cheerful and all-weathered. I'll never forget how Triplett outran people in the academy who were half his age despite his health issues. He will be deeply missed and always in my thoughts and prayers.

Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

For this I am greatful. No greater love than for a man to lay down his life for a person in need of assistance. We sometimes find ourselves doing the unthinkable or the impossible. Really knowing in our hearts that we must either do it or risk losing the life of that person we are caring for. We do it for many reasons, but the one reason that is the focus for our doing is this; It's our calling. My thoughts are with those who have given their lives for the cause. Be strong and diligent, stay focused and courageous. My thoughts and Prayers are with the family and friends--Mike you will be truely missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing you. We love ya man!

I know of no words that will suffice. No words that are adequate.
I would just like for the family, friends and co-workers of Deputy Sheriff Michael Triplett to know there are folks all over this country that will lift you up in prayer before the Almighty.
May you each experience the eternal love and endless blessings of our Lord and Savior in the coming days.
