Denise, thank you for informing our PL family. This makes me very sad indeed.  I am at a loss for words except to send my love and respect to John's wife Nancy, his family and his large circle of friends.  God comfort and bless them all. 


Wiseass, I am so very proud to have known you.

I didn't know John but from reading all the posts over the years I can tell he was one of a kind...God Bless


 


Final Inspection


The policeman stood and faced his god, which must always come to pass.


He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.


Step forward now policeman, how shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To my church have you been true?


The policeman squared his shoulders and said,


"No I guess I ain't because those of us who carry a badge


can't always be a saint".


I've had to work most Sundays


and at times my talk is rough,


and sometimes I've been violent,


because the streets are awfully tough.


But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...


though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got steep.


And I never passed a cry for help


though at times I shook with fear,


and sometimes God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.


I know I don't deserve a place among the people here,


they never wanted me around except to calm their fear.


If you've a place for me here Lord, it needn't be so grand,


I've never expected or had too much, but if you didn't....I'll understand.


There was a silnce all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.


As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his god.


"Step forward now policeman,


you've borne your burdens well.


Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,


You've done your time in hell".
