In Memory of Officer Brian T. Gibson

Brian T. Gibson

Date of Death: February 5, 1997

There is no greater love than the love that the officers embrace the communities with when they go out and try to maintain stable environments for workers, co-workers, churches and thier own families.

These officers really raised the bar in terms of human kindness and I am saddened and wish to offer my condolences to the community and families.

Brian, we wanted to update you regarding the family. You are a grandfather. Olivia Ashia Samone Gibson is 1-year old and she too is a twin to you and Granddaddy. She is adorable. We miss you today as much as we always have. You are always present with us and we know that.

Since you've changed your address to Heaven, I talk to you even more, through my Lord who strenghtens me to endure the pain of not having your presence here with your MPD Family. See, He only takes the best, You were our angel here on earth and now you are residing with the King. I miss you so much.

As we loved him, so we miss him,
In our memory he is near,
Loved, remembered, longed for always,
Bringing many a silent tear.

Thoughts of you are ever near.

Brian, today is the day I lost my husband, my best friend, my dictionary, my encyclopedia, my psychiatrist, my gardner, my housekeeper, my mechanic, my financial advisor, my everything. I love and miss you so very much, everyday, in every way. Nothing has or ever will replace all that you are to me.

Daddy, I ask about you a lot and wish I could see you. No one will ever replace my Daddy, but I have Da-Da, Granddaddy and Uncle Jeff to play with whenever I want, and they never tell me "no."

Officer Gibson to me is a special person. In 1997, when I first heard his name and his duties, I knew he was trying to make a difference. A fallen hero is always a Police Officer. To the men and women of law enforcement -- may God watch over you.
