Reflections for Police Officer Ronald Leon DeHerrera

I was sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. However now after reading all that she left for you on this page, I am sure that it wasn't too hard for her to leave her earthly existence to live with you in heaven, for eternity.
I was honored to be your family's escort for National Police Week in 1998. I had the opportunity to show my family the Memorial in DC this summer, and we all took a moment to pray over your name.
Proverbs 28, 1 says: "The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are as bold as a lion." This is engraved in the marble on the Memorial, underneath one of the huge lions that guard the entrance. Your middle name is Leon, which means lion in Spanish. You were righteous and bold, and already thought of as a lion at birth when your parents named you. I only wish that you had been blessed with more time on this earth, and on the job.
Your sacrifice will never be forgotten! God bless you and all of your loved ones who still suffer from you loss.
