Reflections for Police Officer Jose Lazaro Somohano

 

Rest in peace, Sir! You will never be forgotten.

Jose will be missed greatly. He was a great person with a big heart. Jose was my DT partner in the academy and from the begining anyone could tell that he was very driven and passionate about being a police officer. Any one who knew Jose could tell from first glance that he was going to be a great cop which he made very evident as he progressed his career. I remember going home with many a bruise and pain from having him as a partner but I thank god he was, he taught me more than I would have ever learned from anyone else. Thank you Jose, you and your family will be in my heart forever.

Honor Them As Heros, Love Them As Brothers........this phrase is very true. everytime an officer is lost in the line of duty we honor them as heros. but we ALL love them as brothers. i went to your memorial and its was incredible the part that really got me and i believe everyone was when the dispatcher went on the radio and said your information and then took you out of service (09 / 06). god bless you and your family.

Officer Somohano, I never had the pleasure of knowing you and yet, I've mourned your death for 3 weeks today. I've cried over your death many times and it has hurt me more than I ever thought a stranger's death could. And yet, you are no stranger. My husband is a police officer too, and because of it, we are all part of the law enforcement family.

I went to your memorial and had the heartbreak of being within clear view of your lovely family the entire time. I watched your young son acting strong so that your wife could cry on his shoulder, and worst of all, I watched your little girl sob when her Daddy's picture came up on the big screen. I HAVE NEVER seen anything sadder.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I know you miss hugging them and they miss you more than words can say I'm sure. I pray that God gives them the strength to get through this terrible time.

God bless you, may you rest in peace.

Jose,

It has been almost a week since we lost you; it has been the hardest week of my career. You will always be remembered as an excellent, hardworking cop, family man, and an irreplaceable brother. You were a member of one of the first squads (1300) assigned to me in early 2004, I remember you as a smiling, dedicated employee. You were someone that could be counted on to lead the squad month after month, one that demonstrated incredible potential. You, above all, were a good friend, who could be counted on as such. It is rare to find a person who has such work ethic and such dedication to his peers. You came to me recently asking for leave for a family illness, and I told you not to be embarrassed in asking because family always comes first. You smiled because you knew this fact to be evident.

That sad day in September will never be forgotten. On that day we said goodbye to you. Your sacrifice brought all of law enforcement and the community together, we celebrated your life, and we felt incredible sorrow as we mourned our collective loss. You will not be forgotten.

You touched the hearts of the people that knew you. I know that you are in heaven patrolling and waiting for the rest of us to join you. Your family will always be our family, and my prayers are with them. Rest in peace, brother!!!

Officer Somohano,
Many agencies work togther as one to target a certain task. Whether it's a gang problem, burgalry detail, robbery, etc. A lot of hard work is put into that particuler detail. You were doing what we (officers) enjoy doing day in and day out. KEEPING MIAMI-DADE COUNTY SAFE. Unfortunatley, your job was interrupted, and you were taken from us. On 09/13/2007 WE came together as ONE, for a very important detail. To make sure no one else gets hurt. I'm sure you were up above during the searches, singing "Bad Boys, Bad Boys. Whatcha you gonna when they come for you." MIAMI-DADE S.R.T. brought the detail to an end. As police officers we laugh together, we cry togther, but we never let each other go. God Bless your wife, your children and you. We will all meet again someday. R.I.P. brother.

Jose,
Words can't express how I really feel. Our station will never be the same, it's a very sad place to work right now. I hope after time that will change.....

They say time heals all wounds....I'm not so sure that our station will get through this, it's so tragic and the pain we all feel can not be described.

You brought light into my day whenever I saw you, always with a smile on your face, such a friendly, respectful guy.

You are truly missed, loved and respected.

I did not know you but I might have seen during my tenure with MDPD, and yet I feel such deep sorrow for you and your family. I pray for your family, and I hope they take some comfort that you were truly respected by your fellow officers. Rest in Peace knowing that MDPD officers and detectives worked countless hours to find your killer. Your family will be taken care of because now they have an angel in heaven looking out for them.

It is unfortunate the tragic moments, such as the morning of September 13, 2007, which bring us together as a department, as a community, and as a country.

Officer Somohano, we had never met, but I know you would have been proud of your brothers and sisters and the job they did on that day to make good of something so bad. You will never be forgotten. You are a Hero to us all. Rest In Peace my brother, we got it from here.

To the Somohano family, we at the MDPD will always be here for you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Miss Me, But Let Me Go
Author Unknown

When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me.
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little—but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that was once shared.
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the master’s plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know.
Bear your sorrow in good deeds. Miss me, but let me go
