I remember very vividly learning of your tragic murder in December 2014. As a long time resident of New York, I always held the men and women of the NYPD in the highest regard and was incredibly saddened to hear of this loss.

I am currently a recruit in the Los Angeles Sheriff Department Academy, Class 413. The loss of Officers Ramos and Liu fueled my desire to become a police officer, and I am always deeply appreciative of their sacrifice.

I sincerely hope my career and service will honor the memory of Detective Ramos.

Today is the first anniversary of that terrible day you and Detective Liu were murdered purely out of misguided hatred for your profession. You have most certainly NOT been forgotten nor will you be.

God Bless, Brother.

I said a little prayer today for Detective Ramos and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

Last year when the officers where shot, a song was written for those grieving at this sacred time of year. Now more officers are being shot. The song "When Christmas Hurts: is for their families.

We are praying for them!

I didn't know Detective Ramos but his death has forever changed my life. when I heard of his murder on the news I felt so sad and angry at the same time, I had to do something, so 2 days later I began publicly supporting my local lapd and have continued to do so. Rest in Peace Sir, and know someone in CA carries a challenge coin with your name 24/7.

In Loving Memory ...
For The Angels in Blue & Families that Remain,

When you walk through the storm ...
Hold Your Head up High
And Don't be afraid of the Dark

At the end of the Storm
is a Golden Sky
And the Sweet Silver Song
of Comfort
of The Lord ...

Walk on through the Wind,
Walk on through the Rain
Though Your Dreams Be torched & gone

Walk on ...
Walk on ... through the Pain
With Hope in Heart
And know ...
You Don't Walk Alone !!!

Dear Lord,
I Pray ...
Heal our Eyes,
Heal Our Hearts,
Heal Our Minds ...
Breath Your Breath Of Life over Us ...
Wake Us up from this Darkness so Deep ...
We Don't have the strenth to overcome this
Pain ...
But You Do !!!
Lord, Heal me ...

RIP Rafael & Wenjian , Sons of Valor, with Honor.
Gone from Our Arms ... Forever in Our Hearts !!!

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Rafael was killed.

To the Ramos family, fellow deputies, and all who call Rafael beloved, 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. I hope that your family and Officer Liu's family know that a nation mourned with you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Ramos gave to his community and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on December 20, 2014
