Emilio, was the kind of officer who always took the time to offer positive advice to young teens, he truly cared about them. You could always find him bragging about his wife and his two beautiful children.

What I find very inspiring today is how after so many years his wife has kept his wonderful memory alive.

Continue to watch over your incredible family❤️ We miss and love you
