lt jackson... as always i was so touched to see your reflection... there is no greater comfort than knowing that your hero is not forgotten... although i still come here nightly, as the girls get older it gets harder and harder to post here all that goes on... they are growing into such beautiful young ladies and i know glen is as proud of them as i am... we are gearing up again for national police week... sadly our department lost an officer last year so my oldest daughter and i will be escorting his wife and children along with our departments chief and peer support officers... this is the first time my daughter is going back since the year glen was honored... i have gone back every year since as a volunteer and am elated that she has decided she is ready... there is no better therapy than the comraderie that COPS offers its survivors... my hope and prayer is that she will realize what a great feeling it is to give back and return for many years to come... i am so happy that you are enjoying retirement and in true LEO style still giving back to the community at the ymca... thank you again for stopping by and remembering our hero... heroes are not only the ones we lose... but those of you who have completed wonderful careers of service... god bless you lt jackson... and to our sweet beloved angel... you are always in our hearts...

RG,

I continue to check on Glen and his family. I know the hurt will never go away, but you are in my heart and in my prayers. May the Lord heal you and guide you and his family until we all are reunited again. I have retired from LE and teach at a local YMCA. But it never really leaves, once a LEO always a LEO. God Bless.....

remembering you today...
four years and it seems
like a lifetime...
somehow on this day as if
nothin has changed...
i search for your soul within mine...

we are often told that time heals...
i'm afraid i no longer believe...
the clock keeps on ticking and
seasons still change...
and still we continue to grieve...

time does offer one consolation...
one right in front of our eyes...
we have learned that life is too
short not to live, love and laugh...
set limits as high as the skies...

four years now since you were taken...
anger, confusion, pain and regret...
we are learning to live and make
memories that are new...
but you we will never forget...

we look for you all around us...
we see you in simple things...
we are thankful you're now with
the father...
beared upon eagle's wings...

we know too where you live now...
your new home a place just and right…
and when our time comes and
we too are called home...
once again we will hold you close and tight…

until then we remember your life here...
we honor you and all fallen heroes…
we’ve said it before we miss you
and we’ll say it again…
we love you so much no one knows…

--"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded." -- Maya Angelou

Aloha e Police Officer II Glen Alvin Gaspar,
Thank you for your service and dedication to your community and your country. You and all officers that continue to lay your lives on the line and pay the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities and country safe, will NEVER be forgotten.

I personally pledge, (after one of Hawaii's own, Honolulu Police Officer Steve Favela, lost his life in the line of duty protecting our Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush), to become a continuum; a keeper of the ODMP light. That light is in the form of an ODMP tribute. People from all walks of life, regardless of age, race, religion, profession, education, and geographical location can share here.

This "LIGHT" comes from within the heart and soul of every person who cares to share a word or two on behalf of each and every fallen officer. Every fallen officer is a hero. The ODMP; Officer Down Memorial Page, gives us a place to come together and share our feelings as one family; one `Ohana. May we find solace as we give solace to the families who have lost a loved one.

Police Officer II Glen Alvin Gaspar, God Bless you. You are a hero. You are`Ohana. Hawai`i embraces you as one of their own. No one will ever be able to replace you for you were unique and very special. No one; not in this lifetime. May God allow you to rest in His Divine peace. I wish you, your loved ones, and your fellow officers, peace and love beyond all understanding. I HONOR you today for you HAVE NOT been forgotten.

** May this Hawaiian prayer give all those who read it comfort. **

THE PEACE OF " I "
KA MALUHIA O KA "I"

Peace be with you, All My Peace,
O ka Maluhia no me oe, Ku'u Maluhia a pau loa,

The Peace that is " I ", the Peace that is "I am".
Ka Maluhia o ka "I", owau no ka Maluhia,

The Peace for always, now and forever and evermore.
Ka Maluhia no na wa a pau, no ke'ia wa a mau a mau loa aku.

My Peace " I " give to you, My Peace " I " leave with you,
Ha'awi aku wau I ku'u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku'u Maluhia me oe,

Not the world's Peace, but, only My Peace,
The Peace of " I ".

A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no,
Ka Maluhia o ka "I".

Brother Glen,
My wife and I only came across this site today, and after reading Renee’s reflections, I felt compel to leave one of my own. I remember attending your funeral with Selaina who was eight months pregnant at the time. We were trying to come up with a name for our baby when I glimpsed at your program and saw your second daughter’s name. I didn’t even have to say anything to Selaina because instantly we looked at each other and silently, we both knew that was the name we were going to name our baby girl… (Even though the spelling is a little different…Taeshia) So brother, thank you for gracing us with such a beautiful name for our baby girl. She is a rascal, but often times when I look at her, I think of you and your ohana. I miss you a lot, but I know that you are above watching and guiding over all of us down here. Love to your brother, and much love to Renee and your beautiful daughters. We are always here and a phone call away if they should ever need anything. Bobby Natividad, D6

I still remember that day, sitting in front of the television watching the evening news. I glanced over to where my dad was sitting, and tears were flowing down his face. My dad worked with you at the Kapolei Station, but transferred back to patrol a short time before it happened. I still remember him saying through his tears, and with a lot of guilt, that he should have been there with you. Deep down in my heart, I'm glad he wasn't. I don't know what I would do without my Dad. Before we lost you, my dad would go to work without his vest on because he complained that it was "too hot", but ever since then, he will never leave for work without it on. Mahalo Officer Gaspar. Even in your passing, you still made a difference in people's lives. Aloha.

I wish I found this webpage along time ago. Glen, I remember that day when you were taken from us. I was the first patrol officer on scene at Baskin-Robbins that afternoon. I remember the commotion as I went into the ice cream parlor where the suspect was in custody. I didn't realize how severe the incident was as I took that no good suspect "S.M" in the back of my blue and white and off to the police station. I discovered about the tragedy when I later went to the hospital to see how you were doing. I felt very angry and later distraught about the whole thing. How can a routine sunny day on the road turn into a gloomy one in the matter of minutes? I thought about my kids that day and how I wanted to see them and tell them that I love them. I couldn't sleep that night. Even though I didn't know you personally, I felt an emptiness in my heart when you left. I think about that tragic day everytime I pass that ice cream parlor while patroling in the Makakilo area and how much I wish you were still here working with us doing what you loved (making a difference in the community). I realized how precious life is and to live everyday to the fullest with the people you love. You will never be forgotten. May your family be forever blessed as you watch over them. Much Love and Aloha to you and your Ohana....
