PC Richard Gray

May 10, 2007

I did not know this man, but he was a man, a human being.
I did not know this man, but I believe he was a good man.
I did not know this man,
and he leaves a wife and children behind.
I did not know this man,
but he was a good Police Officer responding to a job.
I did not know this man but he wears the same uniform as I do, the same uniform that we all wear with pride.
When someone dies in these circumstances there are reasons,
I want to know the reason why he was shot in the line of duty.
Did I really not know this man?
I did know this man,
PC Gray was my brother,
He was a part of my own family.
Therefore I did know this man.
Rest in peace my freind.
I will not be adding anymore blogs this week and neither will Serendib in respect of a fallen colleague, PC Richard Gray, who was murdered in the line of duty on Sunday 5th May 2007).

  3. God Bless South West, it is an honour that you and others refer to me as brother. I wanted to pay a tribute. The words just reeled off from my heart.
