Robin - I had been in the Bureau for only 3 years when you left us. I have thought of you many times and I know you are in heaven. My prayers always sent for you and the other SAs involved in this tragic accident. May God continue to bless you, your family and friends. We never forget you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for the solace of all those that call you beloved.

Ms Ruiz--

Robin's brother, James Ahrens, is in Spokane Washington and has a Facebook page under that name and location. Hope this helps you. Robin was a friend and classmate of mine--I have many fond memories of her from my childhood.

It is the 40th anniversary of women Special Agents in the FBI. We would like to honor Robin and other G-Women who have passed at the Former Agent's Convention in San Diego in September 2012. If you know how I may get in touch with Robin's family, please contact me.

SA Ahrens, I am at the WIFLE conference. Your sisters in law enforcement continue to honor you. God Bless your family and friends.

Hoover said that women couldn't do it. Today we know better. Women are fighting crime and breaking glass ceilings, but at a terrible cost. On May 14, 2008, Deborah Pierce (Retired FBI Deputy Assistant Director, Criminal Division, Washington, D.C.; Special Agent in Charge, Minneapolis) will be speaking at the College of Saint Catherine in Saint Paul, MN. Let us hope that she remembers to mention the important memory of Special Agent Ahrens. If she doesn't, then maybe Hoover was right after all.

A Civilian

April 18, 2008

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Robin, Your strength and encouragement, to all of us in your original class, will never be forgotten. The holidays never pass without someone from the class mentioning your name and the friendship you gave us all. Your passing was tragic, but we all learned from your presence among us. You will not be forgotten.

You'll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a 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 a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.

To those I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, Let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled alone.

So grieve a while for if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart,

I won't be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll
Hear all of my love around you soft and clear

And when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say,
"Welcome Home"
