Reflections for Officer Jeffrey Alan Kocab

When I get where i'm going,to the far side of the sky,the first thing i'll do is spread my wings and fly.I'll land beside a lion,and rub my fingers though his mane,and then I'll find out what it's like to ride a drop of rain.RIP guys

Officer Kocab,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Officer for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Tampa. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

This message is to all my fallen brothers/sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the City of Tampa. On Febuary 9th, 2011 we broke ground on an enhancement to the Tampa Police Monument. This project was done to provide the most honorable place to remember your service.

Some of the names on that monument had fallen before my time, however we all wore the same uniform and were family. This enhancement will remind your loved ones that we will never forget all of you nor the sacrifices you made. I am proud to be part of this and hope that you will be smiling down at the finished product. God bless you all and your families. RIP..your sacrifices are remembered daily through those who continue to serve.

I stopped by to say that I bought your memorial t-shirt as soon as I heard about them. I wear it proudly and often. Occasionally people will ask me about it and I tell them of your bravery. You are far from forgotten. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice brother.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your husband and your daughter. No words can ever bring you comfort but I hope you know that so many people that you've never met are thinking of you. Life is unfair and I just have to believe that at the end of this life you will be reunited with your husband and daughter. I can't imagine the pain you must feel. My heart breaks for you.
