Senseless and tragic are two words to describe your passing. No one knows the reason except for God. Godspeed.

Words cannot describe our heartfelt sorrow for your loss. As life partners, we too have chosen this profession. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Spree will always be in your heart and will be watching over all of us from heaven.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name,
in life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories, your love
is still our guide, and though we cannot
see you , you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one,
the Chain will link again.

A hero lives forever in our hearts, she will never be forgotten, she is now a beautiful angel in blue.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Ofc. Desha as well as her brothers and sisters of the LAPD. There is no justified explanation for such a tragedy. I saw her funeral on the news tonight and no doubt she was very much loved not only in life but in death. Rest in peace sister in blue.

Police Officer III Spree Desha,

Each of us knows not the day nor the hour that we might leave the presence of our family and friends. That we spend our lives in law enforcement further increases the unpredictablilty of this factor. Knowing that, we should endeavor to concentrate upon enjoying our life and strive to make life good for others. Officer Desha's departure from this world is a tragedy, but as fellow soldiers-of-the-law we deem her a hero because she chose a profession dedicated to making life better for others. In doing this, she brings honor to herself, her friends, and her family...which includes each of us who is sworn to uphold the law. We honor you, sister, as we render a final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)
