Reflections for Police Officer Specialist Timothy Brian Schock

Tim, I didn't know you but I feel like I do because of your fiancée father. I have seen him at the Commisary for years we had small talk but we had a special bond somehow. When he told me about Tim I couldn't believe both of us had line of duty losses. If I could ever help your Fiancée I would love to hep her for you. Thank you for your service. God bless you! Denise

Another day without you.....
When will it make sense?

Tim, what a great turn out we had in DC this year to pay tribute to you. I saw so many of your friends that have moved out of the area but still took the time to show how much they loved you. You are truly missed brother.

Noah asked me last night if you could protect us in heaven like you did on earth I told him that you sure would. What an Angel you are! You are a gift missed by so many. I pray everyday for Tammy and Nick. I know that they were the MOST important people in you life. The way your missed is indescribable. Never forgotten.

Officer Schock,
Sir, as a fellow former Marine and LEO I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the USMC. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Officer Schock, especially to his fiancee. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Timothy he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Timothy's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Timothy's life was about so much more than the way he died. Timothy will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Schock, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been nine years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

"The Final Inspection"

The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Above all else: go out with a sense of humor. It is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life. ~Hugh Sidey

Thank you for sharing your life with us. Honored to have known you. We try to find a way to heal our hearts through remembering your quirky humor and saying boy, he'd get a kick out of this, or zinging out a good one-liner that you would have appreciated. Rest easy my friend, till we meet again.

Tim, from one PSD to another PSD may you rest in peace. To the family of Tim, may God guide you in these hard times and bring peace to you and your family.

Rescue Diver's Prayer

When I'm called to duty God, to dive beneath the waves, to search for an unfortunate soul, whose body thy have claimed. Let swiftness be my virtue, to find that soul in time, please let this be a rescue Lord, and not the "other kind". Be my eyes in the darkest lake, and guide me with your hand, that this person be saved, when we return to land. If this is not your will, Oh Lord, then please show me the way, to sort out this mystery, and dive another day. If things become their darkest Lord, and its me that you call home, please guide my friends and family, that they'll never walk alone. ---Unknown Author---
