I meant your husband at a spouse retreat in 2004 and meant your son in Washington in 2005. May God bless your soul for a job well done on this earth. I know your son will always have an angel looking out for him from above. I will continue to keep your family in prayer. Peace Be With Your Family!

To the family and loved ones of Private First Class Elizabeth Licera Magruder and her fellow officers with the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office:

On this the fourth anniversary week of Liz's tragic death, I wanted to honor and remember her today. Liz's professionalism and dedication will never be forgotten, nor will her valor and courage.

In reading the loving reflections left by her family, friends and co-workers I can see that she was very loved, well respected and is sorely missed. I hope that God is holding her in the sweetest part of his heart and the most gentle part of his soul.

No doubt that Heaven has another hero in Liz, but I am so sorry you had to lose your beloved. To her parents, I too share your anquish of having lost a cherished child in a line of duty death. May you all continue to be comforted by your faith and your law enforcement family and other police survivors. May her son know his mother through the cherished memories of others who keep that flame and presence alive for him.

I am so sorry that Liz was robbed of her life so young and so tragically, but through her heroism and the profound sense of duty with which she lived her life, she made an immeasurable difference. May her spirit continue to soar and may her memory continue to inspire. She had the most glorious smile and I know that is how she faced life... with passion and joy and glory.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Liz gave to her community and the citizens of Maryland, and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on August 29, 2002.

deputy magruder...it's me, the "shoe lady." just wanted to let you know that i was thinking of you and your family today. you all are still in my prayers and not a day goes by wherein i do not think about you. rest in peace, dear sister...we are still holding it down out here...

deputy magruder...we have never met but i hear that you loved to dress and you love shoes--just like me--when you were off duty. i hear that you kept a fly cut and always had a big beautiful smile--just like me! i hear that you loved your job and that you were living your dream--just like me. and at the time of your passing, your son was three years old. our sons are the same age. your passing angers me...hurts me...and reinforces to me just how vulnerable we are each day that we go out to "make a difference." i look in the mirror and although it is my reflection that i see, it is thoughts of you that run through my head. i think of you often and i pray for your son and your husband. you are never forgotten and much respect to you. your sister in blue has so much love for you and your family will always be in my prayers.

You have not been forgotten. Keep watch over your family, especially your young son. Show him the right path to take in life. It is bad to lose a father, but even worse to lose a mother. I am sure he is proud of you and always will be because his mother is a true hero.

I meet Liz when I was assign to train her in Civil and Courtroom, I could not get over that smile that she always had. She was just so eager learn as much as she could, and she want to get involve where she could. The last time I spoke with her she stopped me the hallway of the courthouse and asked what she could do to help the FOP and I told her to see me later. Later never came that was the day that god called her home. God be with you.

One day a angel with the gift of heavenly love for her fellow man came into my life.This angel was full of hope, full of dreams, and filled with a determination of making this old world a better place for us all. But just as suddenly as you appeared, within a moment you were gone. I often think about my angel and start to cry alone. That angel with a smile so bright and a heart of gold. Thank you Liz, God bless you.

It's been a while since Liz and I last spoke. We went to the same high school and I never knew we shared the common bond of Law Enforcement. I can only imagine how great an officer she was. I know she will be forever missed.

PFC Magruder
During Police Week 2005 I had the Honor and the Priviledge to meet your son and husband at the Wall . You would be proud of your son,he is quite the young man . In meeting them it reminded me that how important it is to tell your family that you love them ,when you walk out the house to do your tour.
Elizabeth I'm sure as you look down from Heaven you know the your brothers and sisters in Blue ,will always look-out for your family, that you left behind .

Deputy Elizabeth Magruder:
It was a tragic event leading to your lose. My husband being a fellow session 95 classmate and a PG Police officer, I stood by his side as we attended your memorial. I came to relize that day what a tradegy it is for your family when I think that that could have been my husband. My deepest simpathy to your husband, Derwinn and your son.
We, the PG County FOP 89 Auxiliary, remember you and all fallen officer's in Prince George's County every year in a Memorial Ceremony. It is not enough for the lose, but we WILL never forget you.

ONE MOMENT

In the whisper of the wind,
I felt God embrace me.
As the voice of a loved one,
I heard God speak to me
Looking in a mirror
I saw God smile at me.
One moment and I knew
That God and I were one.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Though your smile is gone forever,
And your hands we cannot touch;
Still we have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping
And we have you in our hearts.
We know you walk beside us,
And when our lives are through,
We pray that God will take our hands
And lead us straight to you.
