Reflections for Officer Sergio Carrera
One year has passed and so much has changed, yet the memory of you is still intact in our minds. We walk the halls of the PD still olooking for you. To see you coming up the stairs after briefing, that goofy smile on your face. I know that you are watching over us and I know that you know we will never forget you. Your family is always in our thoughts and prayers; We will never forget them. That day still looms over us and the grief is still too much to bear at times. I still have that day imprinted in my mind, the only solace I have in your passing is that you are in a better place and we will be with you one day.

To Officer Sergio Carrera and his loved ones:
On this the first anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today. Rest in Peace, Sergio. I am praying for solace for your wife and children and your other family members today, and each day that they are on the survivors' path.
I was in Sacramento when you were honored this past May, and saw the many officers from your agency who came to see you honored and to support your family.
This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Sergio gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 18, 2007.

Miss you Big Serg,

It seems like just a week ago you were calling me a BOOT but it has been a year and so many changes have happened. My family and I will never forget what happened that day. You and your family will always be in our prayers.
Talk to You Later,

Sergio, like everyone else I can't believe it's been a year, life has been completely different without you. We think of you everyday, we all miss you like crazy. The girls miss you like crazy, Little fat Sams blames you whenever she gets in trouble, she says Uncle told me to, she's so funny. Tia is doing good getting good grades, and Ju-Bug finally made the varsity volleyball team for Valley View, and she's really exited. Your sister is still struggling to get through this, she misses you so much. As you probably already know I took a desk job, I can hear you laughing at me, but it's been a nice break.
We're getting ready to go to Suzy's for her Birthday, Mariano is making dinner. I'll make sure and have a couple of beers for you.
We love you and miss you

Sergio, I dont know how I've been able to get through 11 months without you. I still wait for you to come walking through the door.I miss your late night phone calls I received while you were working. I know I have to go on for our kids but seeing your face everywhere makes it so hard to. I constantly see you when I look in Little Serg's eyes. He still does everything you used to do with him. Even though Bella was so young when you left us, she constantly talks about you and says "Papa" when she sees your pictures. I miss you soo much. Never forget that I Love you and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. Please continue to watch over our children and guide them in the right path that you would have wanted for them. Until we meet again, Love You Always, Louise Carrera

Just thought i would let you know how things are going: The kids are doing fine (as you can see) Serg and Bella ask about you every day. Bella runs to your pictures and says "papa's in the sky". As for Serg, well I guess I don't have to tell you much, he's a spitting image of you. Don't worry, they will always know who you were and how much you love them! Keep taking care of them and keep giving Louise your guidance (she misses you more than could ever be expressed with just words)...

Sergio and family,
I cannot even imagine. My heart goes out to your family and all your friends you have made on this earth. I know you had alot of them. I run into them everyday. You are so missed. I want to thank you for all the protection you have given all of us. You have been a great son, father and friend. When I see you on TV I feel like you are still around the city. I know you are, only in a different prespective. Until we meet again peace be with you and your family.

Just thinking of you today more so than ever Officer Carrera. Thank you for your dedication and sacrifice. It doesn't take a National holiday to make us remember you though. We remember every day.

I will never forget that day. In the morning you lost your life, my niece was born. It is not only a somber reminder of the frailty of life, but a reminder that God is in control. My mom has always told me that our days are numbered and when our time is up, it is up. I have a lot of faith that even when bad things happen to good people, it is in God's plan, even if we do not know or understand the reason behind it. This blind faith has provided a lot of comfort to me during times of loss and grief. May God be with your friends and family, as He has been with me during such times.
Happy Memorial Day in Heaven; we are remembering you here.

We just started block II and I wanted to thank you for keeping us all safe. I know your watching over us and hope we have made you proud so far. Our moto: One Team, One Fight, 1-6-8 rings through the Academy as we sound off from the tower, fall out from formations and motivate us during PT and D-Tac.
In your name we keep pushing. In your spirit we train harder. In your light we will become police officers.
