Rest in peace Officer Barboza. Heard of your story. A brave and honorable young man taken away from his loved ones way too soon. You hunted after violence, sad about what happen to you. Never forgotten.

Just thinking of you today as many of our classmates have retired from service. You have come up in a lot of conversations while I have been training a new class of dispatchers -- all good things. Especially, recalling how I had to tell all the University of Hawaii classmates that the bouncer form Moose's Pucks Alley is in my recruit class. Love and miss you very much. Alofa tele, Lani

I am in Tbilisi, Georgia (country). Yesterday, 9 September, 2014 I saw a documentary on the ID channel about the Officer Troy Barboza which left me deeply moved. Troy was so handsome and promising and brave and courageous too. It is unfortunate that such people as Troy have to leave us so early... Troy dead and the ugly criminal who took his life still alive, in jail, but alive is not just and fair...
Rest in peace, Troy Barboza...

I saw On ID today, July 3, 2014 that you were from Clayton, CA. I was about your age and lived in El Cerrito, Ca. You looked like you could have been my brother. Your contribution to special athletics truly touched my heart. I pray that your family will always know how much you were honored, respected and loved. May God always look over your family. God Bless.

I recently saw the saw on ID tv. I grew up in Concord and was living in Concord at the time of you death, you were three years younger than me. I don't remember the shooting at that time, I'm sure I would have remembered. After seeing your story I just feel so sad for the loss of an exemplary human being. I pray for your parents and know that someday you will be reunited in heaven. God bless you Troy!

Troy and I worked together at Moose McGillycuddy's. He was always such a pleasant caring and wonderful person. I was saddened to see the show last night however very happy that his life is remembered for all the good things. I send prayers to his family and friends and warm thoughts and memories of an outstanding individual.

I was doing work in the home of a very nice couple many years ago. In their bedroom, I saw the picture of a sharp looking man and asked who he was. They said that he was their son. It was Officer Troy. I can remember well the shock and horror that I felt as they continued and told me the story of how they lost him. I will forever remember that couple and the legacy of a man I never met. God bless all of the Barboza family.

Heart shadowing. I am retired military and now volunteer with Wounded Warriors. Officer Barboza, Troy will surly be missed by mankind. Not everyone has the integrity, character or moral fiber to serve; to give to the needing(Special Olympics) of this world. Watching the story on ID channel and heart sinks. God Bless those who loved and worked with Troy Barboza.

Remembering you always as another police week comes to an end. Shared some memories of University Moose Mcgillycuddy's, UH, and recruit school with my ten-year old son. Reminded him that this is the Uncle Troy that the torch run was named after. Troy's memory and legacy will live on. Missing you brother! Much aloha ... always, Lani

I've searched for you my whole life. You're part of my journey here on the P.L. We have a whole family now of leos, attorneys, and two judges. Today you would be married, retired with children, and with grandchildren. Your life was stripped away by blowback for a drug purchase.

I thank those that pursued the perp and lured him into another drug purchase. He made the same mistake. This time incarcerated for life.
Though he lives, his quality of life is more than he deserves. A life for a life is what my emotions say. But my heart knows I am not able to pass judgement. I must forgive. I forgive your murderer and ask God to forgive me for passing judgement. We all stand one day before The Lord. Troy, all I can offer is the power of a prayer. It is where my strength lies.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for guiding the hearts of those Police Link members to help me find my cousin Troy Louis Barboza. I pray his soul has found thy eternal peace Heavenly Father and that thou would continue to have his story touch all those who visit his memorial.

I thank thee for those officers that caught the perpetrator who slain Troy and caused his premature departure from this mortal life. May the Holy Spirit pass through each and every person that visits this memorial. May every leo and visitor feel the love that's been left here for Officer Barboza.

More importantly, may the man who killed my cousin be forgiven for his transgressions and find redemption through Jesus Christ. These things I ask with a humble heart and a quiet spirit.
Amen
Numbers 6:24-26

You will never be forgotten Troy, you have been found today because you were always remembered since the day I was born. I love you! Tehati xo
