Reflections for Officer Frank R. Medeiros

To my 2nd Cousin Uncle Frank R Medeiros- No I never met you because I wasn't born yet, My my mom was your first cousin Colleen, Before her was Carol and George, then Patie, Alex, Maureen and Georgia. My grandpa which was your Uncle was also HPD Motor cycle Officer George L Medeiros Sr. My grandpa was a heavy weight fighter as well, He survived a horrible accident when my my mom was a child chasing someone on the old Pali Rd. He refused to let go and survived this which no one comprehends! Thank you for your service and I am sorry I never got to know you! My moms first husband was also a motor cycle Officer Mellvile Vida. So yes the HPD motor cycle officers mean alot to me and I am proud to be a part of your Ohana! Moms there with you and I hope you all have a wonderful time! Aloha wau i'a oe Leah- Oh and I would never refer to him as Frank it would be my uncle because of his age and we growing up in Hawaii refer to our parents cousins as Uncle and aunty! Its a sign of respect and thats what we do!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 45th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. .

Rest In Peace

Aloha e Officer Frank R. Medeiros,
Thank you for your service and dedication to your community and your country. You and all officers that continue to lay your lives on the line and pay the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities and country safe, will NEVER be forgotten.

I personally pledge, (after one of Hawaii's own, Honolulu Police Officer Steve Favela, lost his life in the line of duty protecting our Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush), to become a continuum, a keeper of the ODMP light. That light is in the form of an ODMP tribute. People from all walks of life, regardless of age, race, religion, profession, education, and geographical location can share here. That "LIGHT" comes from within the heart and soul of every person who cares to share a word or two on behalf of each and every fallen officer. Every fallen officer is an hero. The ODMP; Officer Down Memorial Page gives us a place to come together and share our feelings as one family. May we find comfort as we give comfort to the families who have lost a loved one.

You are`ohana. God Bless this fallen hero. May we embrace him as one of our own family member. No one will ever be able to replace you for you were unique and very special. No one; not in this lifetime. May God allow you to rest in His Divine peace.

Officer Frank R. Medeiros, I wish you, your loved ones, your fellow officers, and friends, peace and love beyond all understanding. I HONOR you today for you HAVE NOT been forgotten.

** May this Hawaiian prayer give all those who read it comfort. **


Peace be with you, All My Peace,
O ka Maluhia no me oe, Ku'u Maluhia a pau loa,

The Peace that is " I ", the Peace that is "I am".
Ka Maluhia o ka "I", owau no ka Maluhia,

The Peace for always, now and forever and evermore.
Ka Maluhia no na wa a pau, no ke'ia wa a mau a mau loa aku.

My Peace " I " give to you, My Peace " I " leave with you,
Ha'awi aku wau I ku'u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku'u Maluhia me oe,

Not the world's Peace, but, only My Peace,
The Peace of " I ".

A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no,
Ka Maluhia o ka "I".
