Eddie,

Losing you was tragic and heartbreaking, even today we miss you dearly. Not a day goes by when we don’t remember something about you.

We are now part of a fraternity who share the pain and sorrow of commemorating another year without you, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of our Lord.

......... We remember you always.

To all the brave men and women in Law Enforcement, may the good Lord bless you and keep you.

On behalf of all the Rojas family
(Mom, Dad, Brother & Sister - we love you ! )
