Reflections for Senior Police Officer Jaime D. Padron

Jaime you are my brother Marine and Officer and I miss you terribly. My greatest regret is that I couldn't be there for you when you needed me the most. Everywhere I look I see you and can still hear your voice. You were a good friend and not much more can I say will bring justice to the quality of man you were.

Your faithful dedication, motivated spirit, contagious laughter and warm smile left an indelible mark on my heart and memory and I will never forget you my friend.

Heavenly Father I ask that you watch over Jaime's daughters and that your Holy Spirit may speed their wounded hearts. I ask this in Jesus's name, Amen.

Semper Fidelis and God Speed Jaime.

April 6th two thousand and twelve
I woke that morning and heard that you fell
I saw the page, it said your name , it took my breath away
my heart suddenly felt the pain
A simple PI call that's what I heard
I could not believe it, when I got the final word
Officer Down they would say......
Officer Jaime Padron has passed away
I will miss my friend my Brother in Blue
Rest in Peace you are now 10-42

I did not know this man but I feel a deep sorrow for the loss of his life and the effects it has on his family & co-workers primarily. but also to all of us in the community who benefit every day from the dedication, care and moral example that our police department shows. I pray that peace will come into the hearts of all of those who will miss him most and that blessings come to those who exercised great discipline in not harming the shooter who has brought so much pain.
I am a proud citizen and supporter of APD, thank you Officer Pedron and all of the others who have given so much to us.

My heart & tears go out to the family left behind. Though I didn't know Jamie I know he was a great officer. We all in law enforcement put our lives on the line knowing we may or may not come home. Jamie's home is now in heaven. May peace be with you Amy. To the daughters left behind, your father was a great and brave man. Thank you to the employees who bravely took action without thinking of your own lives. God Bless you. Lord I pray for the Padron family and friends. I pray that you bring comfort and peace to their heart and soul. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
