I wish I had the chance to know the REAL man ... not the shell that I encountered in Afghanistan. RIP my fellow comrade

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't reflect on our rides into and away from the PD and the countless hours rolling around on shift. No matter how bad things got you found the light at the end of every tunnel. You were more than a friend, or partner. You are my family. As I type this over three years after you left us rest assured that you may not be with us physically, you will forever be in my heart. Love ya bro.

For Police Officer Tauveve Vivao:

The assignment of being a law officer anywhere reaquires that we remain fit and able to subject ourselves to the rigors of our job. Engaging in regular exercise and training brings added stress to us phyically and none of us can predict what might occur, especially as we aga in the process. We regret that Tauveve was the latest to suffer a sudden and tragic demise preparing himself to serve and protect others.

We pray for his family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to assist one another when the needs arise.

I am proud to render Officer Tauveve Vivao a final salute.

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 Mortal 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 to 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 content 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.

Officer Vivao, I wish to thank you for all the service you gave to our nation, first on the front line protecting the country while in the U.S. Army, and secondly protecting those who came after you in the USMC. You are truly a hero for those acts. How sad that you were taken from this life at the young age of 42, no doubt you had so much more to contribute down here, yet it's apparent that God needed you up in Heaven.

Rest in Peace, Brother, and God Bless.
