Randy Laird Tallon

Home city: Toronto, ON
Age: 50
Date of crash: October 18, 2008

On the 18th of October 2008, Randy was traveling with his partner Alison to Florida for a well deserved vacation when they were hit by an impaired driver in Dalton, Georgia USA. The collision killed Randy instantly and seriously injured Alison, who was flown to the Tennessee trauma hospital. The impaired driver fled the scene but was arrested a short time later.

The tragedy that Randy’s death and Alison’s injuries have caused cannot be put into words….as Alison recovers from her injuries and rebuilds her life without Randy.

Randy will forever be missed by his police family, friends and co-workers but most of all by his life partner Alison.

HIS JOURNEY’S JUST BEGUN

Don’t think of him as gone away
His journey’s just begun.
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
From the sorrows and the tears.
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away.
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And he was loved so much.

Love always,

Ali
