Reflections for Patrolman Ramon Robert Solis

Beto, today marks 20 years since you left us behind. You are always on my mind and in the minds of your girls Jasmine and Marissa. But I miss you the most you were like my little brother everyone thought we were related but Yvette was your cousin. Allot has happened over these 20 years allot of family members passing away and our families getting smaller but you gaining all in heaven I will soon be there with you and all of them. If there is one thing that I must say to you, Your mom is one tough cookie but she misses you the most as you know Tia is like our mom to us as we love her, I still remember vividly seeing you in your squad car not knowing that, it would be the last time... I miss you when you would drive up in your bike or your squad car everyone looking what was going on. I miss just talking to you my brother so save a spot. I hope that I haven't let you down on that promise one is gone but your mom is still here and I will keep that promise. Love You Luis

It is eleven years today that you were taken from us. It still is very hard to deal with your death, we miss you so much. Your namesake Robert John helps fill the void in your parents hearts. He acts just like you and spoiled rotten like you. Remember we love and miss you very much.

"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.

Robert, it's been six long years and we all miss you so much. Christine, the kids and I are going to make the drive to Roswell to be with everyone this weekend. As much as we love seeing everyone, I'm sorry that it is due to the anniversay of you departure. You tried to talk me into transfering to NMSP, but my feet are set in Colorado. However, a large part of me wishes I would have had the opportunity to serve along side you. Who knows what kinda of trouble we could have gotten into. I know everyone will enjoy being together, please watch over us all. Until we see each other again, God bless.

It will soon be 5 years that your tour of duty ended and I salute you for your dedicated service to law enforcement. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten. I know the tears still flow from the heart of your loved ones and will for many more years. I know the pain they feel and that they live with each and every day. They will always remember you. They carried you in their arms when you were a baby and toddler, now they carry you in their hearts. Keep watch over them and wrap your wings around them and protect them from harm. Remember, heroes never die and the Blue Family will never let you be forgotten.
