My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.

I have been an officer for 2 years and two months and 3 days. I know that you went to those in need and you did your best. I can not even express how wonderful a person he must of been. To come to those under fire is one of the bravest things that can be done. This man along with his brothers is a hero, not just to your local community to the nation and the world. He did his job and he did it right, I wish to God none of us had to die to protect those we love and those who need our help in times of distress, but that is what we do. And that is what makes us who we are. i pray your family finds peace in the coming years

“ Policeman’s Prayer”

When I start my tour of duty God,
Wherever crime may be,
As I walk the darkened streets alone,
Let me be close to thee.

Please give me understanding with
Both the young and old.
Let me listen with attention
Until their story’s told..
Let me never make a judgment
In a rush or callous way,
But let me hold my patience
Let each man have his say

Lord if some dark and dreary night,
I must give my life,
Lord, with your everlasting love
Protect my children and my wife.

May god bless your family and watch over your children

God bless you brother, your sacrifice will never be forgotten. As Heaven bent to take your hand, you joined the ranks of those who have gone before us. You will never walk alone.

To the Sciullo family, you are in our hearts and prayers. Paul lived and died a hero, doing the job he loved.

Our brothers and sisters of Pittsburgh, we mourn with you. The all too common question of 'why' will never be satisfied. You will continue to stay in the fight and in times of need, know that you can lean on that blue line.

'For those who pledge to uphold it, Freedom requires a Sacrafice the protected will NEVER know.'

• A PART OF AMERICA DIED.... Somebody killed a policeman today .... And a part of America died…. A piece of our country he swore to protect .... Will be buried with him at his side.... The beat that he walked was a battlefield too,.... Just as if he had gone off to war, .... Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half-mast .... To his name they will add a gold star.... The suspect that shot him will stand up in court .... With counsel demanding his rights,.... While a young widowed mother must work for her kids .... And spend many long, lonely nights... .. Yes, somebody killed a policeman today…. Maybe in your town or mine,.... While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors.... A cop put his life on the line.... Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street, .... And he stands at each new rookie's side; .... He answered the call… of himself gave his all,.... And a part of America died.

As the father of a Police Officer, I cannot imagine the grief
the family is experiencing. It has to be the worst nightmare
for a family to endure. My deepest sympathy goes out to them.
Officers Sciullo, Mayhle and Kelly are now patrolling the Zone 5 section of Heaven. Rest in Peace.
