I sit here sadly with tears in my eyes remembering Tim. The tears reflect fond memories of him as far back as our friendship in the Police Academy (Class 268) in 1986. He was always a happy, smiling, friendly, intelligent and energetic person, who was a wonderful Police Officer. Tim, I will always have the highest respect for your efforts out there. God give strength to his family. Rest now my friend, you are in good hands!

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Simpson, we have the watch...

”I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

I just can't believe it! Not again.
You were a great police officer for the City of Philadelphia. I knew you as one of our loyal customers (along with many of Philly's finest)at The Bus Stop breakfast and lunch truck on Front St. between Luzerne and HuntingPark. Aside from giving me good tips, you were very thoughtful and you knew I was into Nascar and gave me a baseball cap from the Dover International Speedway for the 40th year anniversary.
I'll miss your happy go lucky smile
May God Bless you and keep you, my prayers are with you and your family!
