Reflections for Patrolman Alexander Edward Thalmann

Oh Baby, tomorrow is your 23rd Birthday and I am left alone to remember it.

All I can think of is how much I miss hugging and kissing you, laughing at your lame jokes, supporting your clothes horse habit and just hearing you breath.

I miss you so God damned much. I love you with my entire being.

Remembering your Birthday Babe, I LOVE YOU. Mom

Stacey,

The loss our children, no matter how they leave us or how old they may be, is a tragedy that words cannot express. The heart aches. I did not know Alex, but from his picture he is such a handsome young man, and from his bio, a brave and honorable man.

I lost my son in 2007, Durham, NC. The lost is a difficult road to take and endure. My prayers are with you.

I miss you Alex, I love you.

I am taking your place at the Marine Ball this year. Caroline and I have been invited by Tyler Blandings. I am very proud my Alex, to bring the memory of you to this event.

Two weeks ago, your childhood friend Jimmy Hardison took his life. I really didn't think my sorrow could get deeper but it is a ruse thinking I reached its ultimate depth.

I am somewhat comforted hoping you and Jimmy will see each other where ever you are.

I love you Baby with all my heart. I miss you every second of every day and am still trying to figure out how to live without you.

Love Mommo

All line of duty deaths deeply impact the entire law enforcement community, but it always hits me a little harder when a man as young as myself makes the ultimate sacrifice. Alex, you define the word 'hero' and you have changed the world for the better with your service. Your mother and girlfriend have every reason to be proud of you, brother. I pray for peace and comfort for both your family, and your police family at NBPD. You will never be forgotten.

My wife and I were recently in New Bern, NC to visit my sister, it is hard to believe that this could happen in this beautiful town. We were very sad to hear of this while we were there. May The Lord and all the angels in heaven receive this man of goodness. God bless him and his beloved family.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé 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 Thalmann, especially to his girlfriend. 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 & prayers.

From reading the reflections left for Alexander, 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 Alexander's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Alexander's life was about so much more than the way he died. Alexander will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Thalmann, 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 fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eleven years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,


Jocelyne :)

Memorial Day. I remember the years you went and put American Flags on the graves of Veterans. I will take up that honor this year and honor our fallen Veterans by placing American Flags on their graves.

You did so much without telling anyone. You touched so many lives.

I miss you beyond missing.

Officer Thalmann,

You were taken from us way too soon. My heart goes out to all of your co workers and your family. Reading the tributes from your mom, your girlfriend and one of your fellow officers really choked me up, and painted a really good picture at just the kind of person and officer you were. Rest easy brother, we'll take it from here. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

He went to work one morning and did not know
This shift he served would bring such sorrow
This call to duty would be his last
His time on earth is now his past
God set this day as his time to go
Rest in peace Officer Thalmann, now a hero
He gave the ultimate sacrifice
With integrity and pride he paid the price
His family, friends and colleagues will mourn
As an angel in heaven he is now reborn
His golden heart stopped beating
Hardworking hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the very best.
