Saying Goodbye to a Fine Detective

Not a gaming post. Life (and death) is what happens in the time between the gaming. Today I said some farewells to a fine detective that I had the pleasure to supervise for too short a time. Rest well Ozzie, you fought the good fight and now is the time to be at peace.

Tomorrow morning we bury her. In service death, so missing man flyover, bagpipes and full honor guard. I've been to way to many of these funerals in my 17+ years, but it's the first time where it's someone that has worked for me.

My first was my training sergeant when i was just six months out of the academy.

Ah well, back to normal posting tomorrow afternoon.


  1. God bless you and comfort you in your time of mourning. Rest in peace Ozzie.

  2. Praying for all of you. May Ozzie know peace and joy on the other side and may all who remain know consolation and gratitude for having known and worked beside Ozzie.

  3. Sorry hear that and prayers for her family. It is a sad day when we lose one of our public servants in the line of duty.

  4. My condolences to you, colleagues, and her family.

  5. My condolences. I have played the pipes at a few funerals and I can say that everyone has told me afterwards how moving it can be. Once again, sorry for your loss.

  6. It was an amazing turn out today - easily over 100 cars going from the church to the cemetery.

    If any Freeport PD officers are reading this, you were amazing.

    Thanks to all for their kind thoughts and wishes.
