Reflections for Police Officer II Glen Alvin Gaspar

 

Glen,
It's been a while, brother. Know that I think of you and your family often. I remember you and the girls playing soccer behind the Kailua station one day- long ago. I remember you all laughing and enjoying each other's company. I always knew that was what I wanted- to be a hero to MY family. I listened to my heart.
You always made me feel welcome. That meant more to me than you would ever know. I've told your story many times over the years. Even with groups of more than 50 trainees sitting on the edge of their seats, and despite sharing your story so many times, I always have a hard time fighting back the emotion. That's not typical of me, but that's the gravity of our loss of you.
That was a rough couple of years with HPD. Between the loss of you and Danny, I learned the frailty of life and the path we were chosen to take. You have guided me through the years, you truly have. For that, I thank you. I've moved on to the Mainland. That was a tough move, but it allowed for life to happen. I've got two young ones of my own now, and a beautiful woman to keep me grounded.
Glen, thank you. Rest easy. Keep helping your family. Be the guiding light for them. We all need that nowadays.

it hurts today g... who am i kidding - it hurts everyday! i miss you... need to know you're near... and love you still <3 i have been spending a lot of time with mom and dad... it gets harder each day - dad asks for you sometimes and it stops me in my tracks... it's been 8 years -- i just say you'll be home later, even saying that out loud stings. i wish it were true. c thomas called about the 110 class reunion. i would have loved to go and see everyone but it was sort of last minute and since my time with kiana is so limited now days - i opted for church with her and baby and some time at home after.... i cannot believe it would have been 20 years for you in the department - wow. i remember the study groups at our house and our lanai lunches during evok and mock crimes.... good stuff - even better memories. today is just one of those days... at work - thinking - i hope you know - noone will ever take your place - for me or the girls... i hope i am still doing right by you when it comes to them... and most of all i am banking on faith that i will see you again one day. my time with auri are a constant reminder of your missing spin on things but i can almost predict how it would go. she'd have you wrapped around her finger and you'd be the proudest papa. when we share about you we call you papa-g. she's gonna know it all... the great man you are, the wonderful daddy you were to her mommy and the amazing angel you will always be for her. she is so much like you and people say it all the time. it is sooooo true. her mannerisms.... and she has this little smirk that says 'i'm my papa-g's girl' all over it. my heart aches the most when i am with her and realize what has been taken from her.... tragic to say the least.... i know i'm just rambling - and i guess my lunch break is almost over. but i was just thinking about how i would call you from work about nothing and just touch base during the day - i miss it. i miss you. i miss what would have been - could have been and should have been. be with me today - i need you. beloved angel now that guides me.... forever in my heart.

I love you and miss your smile.
I'd give anything just to get a phone call to hear your voice just one more time...

Watch over Granny & Granddad, they need you more than ever. Granddad asked when you were coming home the other night :/ Didn't know what to say...

Going to take mommy to work, we needed some us time... come with me for the ride and protect me on my way home..? I know you're there. Thank you Daddy <333

It's been a while since I stopped by here, but it doesn't mean I haven't thought about you. Almost 8 years and there hasn't been a single day that i've wished I could hear your voice... I wish you were here, to tell me to keep my chin up. It seems like the hardest thing to do these days... Everyone tries to help but nothing is gonna stop the hurt. No one understands. No one understands that its a hole in my heart that can never be filled or replaced... you know..? Well i don't know... No one knows... In my group counseling I learned that no two people grieve the same... It took me a while to understand but I finally get it, but it makes my grieving even harder.. :/ It made me understand that like for example: even though you were both me and sisters dad and we lost you the same way the same day, everything the same, it still affects us so different. You can't comfort two people who are grieving the same. I don't know if that makes sense. I never understood that before because I guess I was younger when it happened... But now I finally get it. I get that no one will ever understand how I feel, I will never understand how sister feels, I will never understand how mom feels or I will never understand how Aunty Liz, Ryann and Chad feel. It's a big reality check because it makes you feel more alone then ever. Lately i've been feeling like people really don't understand. I got into an argument with a friend about something and you came up in the conversation and I told her that I have times when I feel content and feel like I can handle my emotions but there are other times when I feel like it just hit all over again and sometimes I feel like its the hardest thing to handle. Like I don't remember how i've handled it for this long and my "friend" said... "It was so long ago when are you ever gonna get over it?!" I was so shocked, but that is the reality of it. No one will ever be able to even imagine what it's like. I learned in group counseling that survivors are literally the strongest people alive because if we can cope with losing a loved one we can conquer anything... Sorry if i'm babbling... Im working on expressing myself and typing or writing is the biggest step i've taken. I think that after hurting so much for so long i taught myself to just hide everything and put on a different mask to everyone and now that i'm trying to face what hurts me instead of covering it, its so hard. It's so new to me. Before this, I can't even remember the last time i've even teared.. I just feel really lonely. I guess its such a surprise to people that I actually have feelings and the reactions aren't really what I expected... I feel like when I open up to people, they either throw it in my face later that I need to get over it or I feel like I make them uncomfortable because they don't know what to say or they feel sorry for me and I don't want to be pitied.. Its hard to explain but honestly its hard for even me to understand because its so new... Im learning how to sort everything out everyday its just hard because everyone either doubts me or puts me down because im not doing things the way THEY think i should... It's a very slow process but I guess you can't reverse 8 years of hurting in one night...

I miss you, everyone remembers how much of a great guy you were. Everyone always talks about you :) it's really cool to see that people still remember... I was at work and Lieutenant Kato came in... I didn't think he recognized me so I didn't really say anything I just smiled and sat him at a table... Then he called me over and asked me if I was a Gaspar and I smiled and said yes. And he said, "I could tell you have the same smile as your dad..." I didn't know what to say, it was surprising to hear that he remembered your smile. But how could you forget it..

Oh oh! And me and Isaac started to polish your rims, they're looking good! I'm hoping uncle greig, granny and granddad will let us have your car.. I sit in it when I go to grannys sometimes and remember all the rides we had... But they want to sell it... I don't understand how they could its one of the few tangible memories we have of you and I would hate to see it be thrown away like that...

Anyway... I miss you Daddy.
I hope I still make you proud.
I love you..
Miss you Daddy.

Aloha brother, how time flies, I took a chance and checked in knowing your family would have thoughts to share. In the totality of life, it has not been that long, and yet it has. Lots of changes going on, they don't make them like they used to.

There is obviously still a lot of pain. Every time we do an operation I remind everyone about how things can go so wrong. Survived one career and trying to stay alive in the next. Rest, you are not forgotten.

Glen and RG,

Time seems to creep on and on. I hope that you are doing well and watching over all of us. RG, one graduating from High School! Wow. Feel old now. Great to still see you here. May is coming and I hope to do a short program at the YMCA during Police Week to tell the children in our day camp about all those including Glen who have given a gift that only those who do the protecting will ever know. Take care and may God bless you and keep you.

sweet g - another year = 7 and it seems like an eternity... it was a quiet day for the girls and i... brought your favorite flowers and had lunch... we sat with you for a bit and talked about how 7 years can seem like forever and just like yesterday all at the same time... the girls are both embarking on such great journey's right now and i know they need you more than ever - i do too g... more than you know... as the years draw on - this new normal becomes what we do - how we do it - but never is it without your influence in some way shape or form... never... hold kiana in your comforting embrace as she nears delivery of auriana... i know she aches for the loving spin you would have had on this whole situation... for her and for austin and for our first little grandbaby... my heart aches for sharing that first with you "on this side"... not completely alone cause i know you are a bigger part of it than we can imagine... i pray that you touch her heart before she gets here that she know you - we will ALWAYS make sure that she knows of you... how could we not... and taysia... our sweet taysia... carry her for a bit daddy... in comfort and protection... in a way that only you could right now - you know what her heart needs... remind her of the strength and the gift she posesses and that she can do anything she sets her mind to... we have seen it in her -- we are so very blessed and the blessings keep coming... thank you for the gift of our girls and the laughter and memories they bring every day... 7 years does not nor could it ever diminish the love we carry in our hearts for you... your influence in our lives and the impact on our souls you left... hold us all in your embrace until we can hold you in ours once again... i love you <3

My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. You will never be forgotten.
