Reflections for Police Officer Ronald Leon DeHerrera

Officer DeHerrera,
On today, the 25th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Denver. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I hadn't been to the cemetery for a long while, I went there with my 13 year old great grandson Jayden 2 weeks ago. He was so impressed with the fact that you were a police officer and deeply touched that he was related to you. He expressed sadness that you died, he asked questions that touched me to the core of my heart.
It wasn't sad it was so peaceful...your always in my heart Ronnie.

With love,
Aunt Chris

Officer DeHerrera, I remember watching the news when this terrible accident happened. It saddens me to the core of my heart. I didn't know you personally, wish I did. You came from a wonderful loved family, from what I have read on this page. You were kind, funny and loving. I was also born in 1964, we both Come from honest beautiful families. I will meet you in Heaven. Watch over our families as you are still a awesome officer. My baby boy is also in Heaven. RIP officer DeHerrera, and God Bless you!

It's been 23 years since the accident that changed lives forever!
I have finally forgiven Gil Webb, holding on to the bitterness was too much work! I have grown!
April 1 brings you back in a way hard to explain, not sad, not happy, just a special day etched in my heart forever! I love you kiddo...

It's been a long while since I've visited this page. You cross my mind often and touch my heart in a sad special way!
Today we buried another child! Your cousin Luke was only 28 and 6 years old in 1997 when you left us. That makes 7 of our children. I told one of your aunt's...we cant loose any more kids. The hardest thing s mother does is to bury her child! You never get over it but learn to go forward with purpose and with dignity.
Your birthday is coming up...I dont forget! Give my love to all your cousins...all of you Fly With The Angels!
Love, Aunt Chris

Brother! As I prepare for the the recent fallen Denver officer's funeral tomorrow, you are HEAVY on my mind. I remember when you bought me that Jem and the Holigrams doll for Christmas and you said it was cool like me. Yeah, I remember that! I don't know why that popped in my head just now, but I will never forget it. I love you! xoxo

Oh cousin, but you would always say... I'm not you're cousin...I'm your brother. We have spent many years/weekends/summers/holiday's, you name it we did it. You're my BROTHER!!! When people look at your picture and ask"who is that", I say"that's my brother". I will never forget when you took me to Red Lobster for the very first time, and I ordered "chicken finger"...Who and the heck orders "chicken fingers" at a "Seafood restaurant"...I guess I do.. But you know what...I love it their and so does my family. Thank you. I miss you very much. My son is now 18 and has a son and a daughter on the way...And you know what...He wants to be an officer! WOW, go figure. I know when you found out when I was pregnant at 17, you were so upset...But that's what BIG brother's do. Thanks Bro...for caring. I love you and miss you so much. I don't have you, brother Donny, Gram or Gramps... By the way, gramps died this year. I'm sure you have run into him from time to time. Well, I miss you very much and all of you have taught me so much. THANK YOU......Your little sis... Mo!

May God bless you Ronnie. I will never forget how happy you made your mom, such a good son calling her everyday even just to say hi and sending her flowers just because. I worked with your mom at the DCPA. She was so proud of you when you finished the Academy and had such dreams for your future. It's a complete tragedy how your life was cut short - too short. I pray that God continues to watch over you, your mom and all the men & women in law enforcement. My husband is a Denver Sheriff and I am very proud of him. Rest in Peace <3

You crossed my mind yesterday, no special reason. Yet, however you slice it, all thoughts of you are special, Kiddo! So when you crossed my mind again today I thought I'd let you know that you are always close to are in my heart. And it doesn't get more special than that!

Love You,

Officer DeHerrera - You had just graduated the Academy - what a tragedy. Four Fridays ago, I stood in the State Assembly chambers when you name was one of almost 250 read off during a motion regarding this month's Peace Officer Memorial Week - you are not forgotten.

Thank you for your service to the people of the City of Denver and the State of Colorado. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.
