Reflections for Police Officer Isaac Anthony Espinoza

HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY!

July 17, 2004

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISAAC, wow this is so hard ,we miss you so much, you know exactly what a hard time I would have given you about turning 30! I'm so glad Renata kept your car, everytime I go outside, I stare at it and its like I can almost see and hear you, it keeps everyone going. Hope you are behaving in heaven and not driving the way you use to down here! You will live in our hearts forever and will not be forgotten. Love you and miss you! P.S. Your legacy continues, we are still being awaken in the mornings by the workers at your house, just like you use to do, my god don't I wish it was you, even if you woke us up in the middle of the night!! Remember the morning you came to ask if I had any bread because you did not want to go to the store, well Bella came over today and asked "Sonia, do you have pan dulce, and chocolate?" A reminder of you. Love you Isaac, and miss you!!

My sweet Angel,
Happy birthday, Isaac. I'm thinking of you today and always, wishing you were still with us. Although I didn't know you for a long time, I can't help but think how lucky I was to know you...even if it was for the short time that I did. It took me awhile to write; something like this is hard to put down in words. Besides I know you hear me talking to you, and better yet I know that you are there. Just know that no matter where I am and what I do, you are always on my mind and in my thoughts.
I had just seen you three days prior to April 10,...completely random that I bumped in to you. When I got the call that night it was so surreal. I had just given you a hug hello, where you were telling me about your trip to South Beach. I still question and wonder why I was one of the few who got to say goodbye to you before this tragedy. Of course I didn't think it would be my last time seeing you, but I am so grateful that I did.
Your death has taken an unbearable toll on me and my family. We are so sorry that this happened to you, and we pray for you and your family every night.
So because I never got the chance to tell you, I'd like to express from the bottom of my heart how thankful and honored I am to be your friend. Thank you for welcoming me in to your world with open arms.
Never goodbye, only farewell sweet Angel. I'll see you in my dreams.

Sorry Zak,
I just found out that my first e-mail to you and the family was lost in some error! Here goes: I remember meeting you and Derrick at a fellow Officer's fundraiser about 4yrs. ago. I told u and D. that I would complete probation and become permanent personnel at Bayview Station. Not one time did u or D. laugh at me or put me down, after all, there is no waiting list for Co. C! That everlasting impression of seasoned Officers (who were "Officers of the Month" that month)who remembered where they came from- the bottom just like everyone else. I had the opportunity to work with you and D. when I got to Bayview Swings. I could've sworn your call sign was "Code-33"! Haaa. I knew that u had a little girl named "Bella". U were in the middle of a report when u bolted for the locker room and produced a photo of gorgeous little Bella in a red Niners outfit. Selfless...I met Renata for the first time at our 2001 Christmas dinner. I asked u if she was a model because she was beautiful with class and style to match. U blushed, and actually seemed speechless! U looked over at Renata, smiled, and politely told me, "No." U could absolutely see ur love and connection...a true bond and happiness. Its still unreal Zak...I never thought that I would have to hear "406, Officer down, AK-47" and KNOW whose voice that was- Barry's. I thank Off. Wise for talking me thru my Cd. 3 response to get to u and B. I never drove so intense, thru tears, praying aloud, screaming at my partner, with about ten units from outside districts following me...Chaotic. The intestinal fortitude of Christine, Josh, and Alice (and other Officers)to provide immediate medical attention to a fallen Officer was unbelieveable. Our supervisors put on their poker faces and helped us thru the nite. I will visit you on your birthday, as will several others, and on many days following...God Bless u and urs, Always, Patty.

ZAK-
In about a half hour, it would've been your 30th. birthday! I am pretty speechless as far as the entire incident and aftermath of politics, and "mad" would be an understatement of how I've felt for the last three + months. I think of u and know that u wouldn't want us to be mad, but to jump back into the game and win. We love you so much and think of you every day, several times a day...putting on our uniforms and stars, and thanking the lord and (you) his Angel for helping us get through the watch- alive...Feliz Cumpleanos Isaac, te amo hermano!

To the family of Isaac Espinoza,
I all to well know your grief and pain. As your husband was taken from you just five days before my own in the very same manner. I think of you daily and hope that with each difficult day you may find some measure of comfort.

Renata, Our family will always remember the love Isaac had for you. I remember him coming to Popo's house, and he had this big smile on his face. I asked him, "Wheres Renata?" He said, "She's at church." But it was the way he said it. He was so proud of you!! You guys brought the best out in each other. Don't ever forget that he still wants the best for you. May all your prayers truly be answered, and may you find the strength in God to find happiness again. We love you Renata! Adele

I think about you everyday, and I visit this website. I know your Birthday is near. Wow, you left this world before 30. You will always be young and handsome and full of love. That is the way I will remember you, a nice, funny and wild guy! I miss you Isaac.

July 6, 2004

Renata,
There is not a day that has gone by that I do not say a prayer for you. For strength, for serenity, for peace, for God to give you the answers to all your questions. I understand the Love Isaac and you have and how this must have left your heart. So I pray for you, I pray for your daughter, I pray for your parents, I pray for your siblings, and I pray for Isaac's family.
God protect you, God give you the strength, God answer your questions. Remember to look for God, to talk to him whenever you need to, to shut your door and pour your heart out to him as often as need be.

God Bless you!

Julie

My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this terrible tragedy. Know that others have shared your pain, and you are not alone. One day, you shall all be reunited one fine day. Know that he is in a place surrounded by the finest law enforcement has to offer ... all of our beloved fallen heroes. May God bring peace to you and help you see this through.

Renaata, Isaac will always answer your prayers, I know that he is standing right there by your side everyday, listening to you, watching you. He will never leave your side, I truly believe this. I know that this has been hard for you and you really are trying to stay strong. You are a very strong woman and thats why Isaac loved you so much. Its ok to break down though. I would. I do. It will be ok, somehow, I really don't know how, but it will somehow. We love you!
