I just came here because I was going to call SGT. Luna and ask about his jail cleaning program. I can't believe the story I read its damn tragic. I remembered going to his program he had where we can clean the cells and around the police station, etc. He was always courteous and treated everyone fair regardless of your crimes. I didn't know him personally cause I was just a helper doing my cleaning days but once I read about what happened I just wanted to say he was a great officer and good man. Thanks

Just learned of the passing of Leonard Luna,

We met him in Moab, UT, in July 2010. Of course, he was on his motocycle. He and Keith K. camped next to us and we had a great evening with them telling stories of the many rides they had been on. When I got back to Pennsylvania, I got my motorcycle license. He and Keith inspired me!! The last time I saw them was the day before the Space Shuttle was moved through the streets of LA.

I was wondering why he had not responded to my emails and text messages over the past few months.

I am in SHOCK!!! I was hoping to see him this July when I come out there. So sad to hear that he is gone. What a great guy!!!

Sergeant Luna,

Thank you for your service. You will be welcomed by all others who also chose to "Protect and Serve" who went before you. Rest well in the arms of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray,

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over two years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Sgt. Luna died.

To the Luna family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Sgt. Leonard Luna gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 8, 2013.
