Anyone who's ever lost a loved one has heard over and over that "time heals all wounds;" but what no one ever really understands, or knows, is just how much time is needed.

For family, friends, loved ones, co-workers, and the people of Rockford, not enough time has passed to get over the loss of Officer Jaimie Cox and what's needed is more tributes to fallen officers like this one from Ofc. Jhordynne Alexander.

The poem written on the photo says,

I fight not for glory or fame,
For they are momentary.
I fight for those who can't.
I fight for Justice.
I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden.
And if I should lose my life for these just cause, then I have no regrets,
For I serve to protect the innocent.
It matters not where or when,
For evil knows no boundaries.
Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny,
I will not flee.
Justice is my weapon.
Faith is my shield.
Hope is my armor.
Cry not at my passing,
For it was my Honor to fight for you.
Shed not tears of sorrow,
But tears of joy,
For Now,
I stand with God.
To All the Fallen Officers

According to Eyewitness News the heartfelt homage is making the rounds on social media and has been shared hundreds of times.
