Reflections for Police Officer Stephen James Mayhle

We are so sorry for the loss of your son Officer Stephen Mayhle. Our preist said the difference in between a police officer and the rest of the world is they run towards danger while the rest of us run away. Find comfort in knowing that he was trying to make this world a better place. We share your greif because our son died trying to help another officer responding to a drug bust call for extra help and he was just 28 years old too. Our youngest son is a student at Pitt and his sister is 25. WE miss him every day but are so proud of him. Your family is in our prayers. M. Matthews

We know the ultimate price some are asked to pay.
We know it could be us,and yet we wear the badge another day.

We rush head long toward danger, without a second thought.
We fight, protecting freedoms those before us bought.

Each and every time, we hear another hero's down,
we stand with pride and honor, as they place him in the ground.

We hear the bag pipes blowing, salute the flags they fold.
As the heroes go to heaven to patrol the streets of gold.

Why do we keep on fighting with the dangers in the field?
Some say it's a calling, some the spirit of the shield.

The loss of an officer is felt throughout his/her agency and across the entire law enforcement community. The loss of three at one time breaks through even the toughest shells we build around ourselves in an attempt to carry on through these difficult times. My condolences to the family & fellow officers at Pittsburg Police Department.

A PART OF AMERICA DIED
author unknown

Somebody killed a policeman today
and a part of america died..........

A piece of our country he swore to protect
will be buried 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 sombody 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 rookies side:

He answered the call....of himself and gave his all,
And a part of America died.....

Thank you brother for your bravery and dedication to go and do every day what most won't. We will never forget you as we enter another door at a "another domestic". You forever will be in the back of our minds and deep within our hearts as we continue the good fight. We will honor you and your memory for the rest of time. Rest easy now, we'll take it from here!
