"He Answered The Call"

Today in the sun, I bid him farewell
A man, a hero, I never knew well

Like many before him, who answered the call
Wearing a badge, he was destined to fall

Though by choice a long life and a happy old age
Would he have chosen, had he written the page

But the office he chose never promised long life
Just half of his salary, for his child and his wife

He went without fear, into the darkness of night
Bringing comfort to some, to some others light

Easing their pain and calming their fears
He did his duty, never asking for cheers

A husband, a cop, he answered the call
We bid him farewell for he gave his all

As Family, Friends and fellow officers gather to honour you today, my thoughts and prayers are directed to them. I am saddened by the enormous loss suffered by your family, colleagues and your community. I am moved by your selfless service and sacrifice; on and off the job.

I was working one borough away in Manhattan when I heard the level III mobilization come over the radio, the dispatcher saying an MOS had been shot in the face. I was in shambles for the rest of the tour, not knowing your name, but hoping you'd be okay. It was not until my ride home from work that I heard on 1010Wins you had passed. I began to cry right there. I never knew you, but I bleed blue and have had trouble sleeping ever since. It truly could have been any of the over 30,000 of us that day. I'm staring at my Class A's this morning, waiting to bid you farewell in what will likely be the largest send off if NYPD history. I swear on all I love in this world, you will never be forgotten. Not by me, not by your entire family in blue. We will all be here for your family and four daughters forever. From this rookie to you, old in peace.

You were truly loved. I did not know you, but I can tell by what an uproar your death has caused. They would only close down a school district and change the railroad schedule for the funeral of a true hero.
