We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
But secret tears and loving thoughts,
Will live with us forever. are loved & missed by Aunt Grace, Sherry, Kathy, Karen, Shelly & our families. Xo

On that fateful night the angels looked down from heaven They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.

They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.

Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You’ll always be within our hearts
Until we meet again.

We love you and miss you!

You are loved beyond words & missed beyond measure.
Your smile will forever be in our hearts.

24 years ago our family circle was broken. So much has happened and so much has changed over the years but our love for you has not changed. We miss you terribly but you are alive in our hearts and minds because we remember and talk about so many funny stories and good times that you were always a part of.

Love Aunt Grace, Sherry, Kathy, Karen, Shelly & families

One day I decided to look for you, in a place where I did not know if you could be found. I have seen you glide your hand across my forehead and gently kiss me when I was baptized, but I just can't seem to remember. I was far too small. It hurts me that I can't remember you, or even know what some of your favorite things were. I know that you are loved, and missed everyday. I know that you were a good brother, a good son, a good father, a good uncle and a good cousin. But I am the only one who can say you were a great godfather. I may not have known you, but when I'm in trouble you are there. I see you pass through my mind like a beam of light, like an angel. You have helped me make some of the hardest decisions in my life and you have inspired me in many ways. I look forward to the day when I get to formally meet you, give you a huge hug and learn everything about you. Until then I will see you pass through my mind like a beam of light, graceful and glowing.

You are always in our thoughts. I wish we could turn back the clock so that we could be together again. Our "cousin" time is just not the same without you.

I can't believe it has been 17 years since you were taken from us. We all miss you so much and miss the fun times we had together. Our "cousin" time is not the same without you. xo

I said a little prayer today for Deputy Sheriff Incardona and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

I remember the days when Jeff and I were aspiring Law Enforcement officers as we worked in Loss Prevention in Retail. Those were some of the best times of my life and Jeff is a big part of those memories. He was like a brother to me as we pushed towards our goals of being police officers.
As I look back, the time I knew Jeff was way too short and I truly miss his friendship. Jeff achieved his goal of wearing the Niagara County uniform but his time was too short. Jeff was a true blue police officer and he always wanted to do the right thing. I am deeply saddened that we lost one of the good ones. He is truly missed.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
