Reflections for Patrolman Victor Pimentel

A Million Times

A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You would have never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

Victor, I remember meeting with you on February 21, at 1600 hours. We met at a residence to arrest a suspect on a hit and run case you had solved. The suspect was not there so we sat in our cars and talked about various things, our jobs, families, and life. I had to leave and will never forget my last words to you. "Be careful, I'll see you Monday". I never got to see you again. I was devastated to hear about the crash. Truly heart broken when I learned you had died. Victor, you always had a smile, a joke, a way to make a bad day seem all right. You were a friend, a god officer, a great accident investigator, and a pleasure to have a man of you caliber and knowledge to supervise. In your own words, when I commended you on your good work and investigations, "Dam I'm Good" will always be a memory I'll cherish. I know you're looking down on your family, me, and this agency, and I hope we've all made you proud. Keep us safe Vic.

It was an honor to know and work with Victor. An honorable man from an honorable family with a long history in Law Enforcement. I am a better man for knowing him.

his reflection is for my good friend, Victor. I remember talking to you in the station not even a half hour before the accident. You were dedicated to the job. I remember you said that you were going to write one more ticket and then go home to your wife and children because it had been a long day. And you never lost your sense of humor, always had a joke to tell and always put other peoples needs above your own. I think of you often and miss your friendship. But I do know that you are watching over our other brothers and sisters that wear the bagde. Officer down...  but not forgotten.

Never forgotten but still missed.
