Officer Wes,

Because of the family you had, the good will that your wife has brought to us while we are in the beginning stages of our loss, I could NEVER repay you for the ultimate gift you gave.

I am a mom of Fallen BPA Barraza E.O.W. 4-18-16.

Ashlee has such a wonderful way with people, no wonder why you picked her. She and the others of C.O.P.S didn’t blink an eye at accepting us as a part of the family we didn’t ask for, but one I couldn’t do without.

She and the others made sure we were taken care of for the last year.

You see when a mom looses her son or any child, the pain is horrific and you’d like to check out just to be with them. But Ashlee saved my life by introducing our family to the hands on programs that COPS has to offer.

Your girls are beautiful and I know you’re proud of all of them.

Take care of my son Joey and whenever we meet, if you haven’t met my son, I’ll bring him to you to meet.

Enjoy your wings, you are truly blessed.

Tammy Avent
Mother of BPA Jose “Joey” D. Barraza E.O.W. 4-18-16
