A Brother Warrior has fell and died today in battle.

This Brother Warrior has made the ultimate sacrifice.

He has given his life for his Fellow Warriors, his family and friends too.

Brother Warrior, pass your sword to us, so we can keep your spirit alive.

You, my Brother Warrior will not be forgotten.

God Bless you, your family and your friends.

We honor and respect all of the Fallen Warriors who have gone before us.

We ask you, Brother Warriors to guide us, protect us and pray for us.

We will meet again my Brother Warriors.

For this time not to fight another battle, but to live in eternal peace.

God bless all of the Warriors, past, present and future.

Isaac recently went to Miami, and I didn't get the chance to ask how the trip went. Well, tonight at the rosary I saw the pictures and it looked as though Isaac had a blast. I met him when I was 10, and he is someone that came in and out of my life for the next 20 years. Isaac was very charming, and full of energy. There are not to many people who are good looking, funny and humble! Thank you Isaac for being a part of my life. You are going to be missed. You were the "life of the party". May you rest in peace...

May God bless Isaac and his family always. I am very sorry that Officer Espinoza has had to leave this world by the violence of the streets. He has left a positive place in someones heart forever. He is an example of the hope people come to trust and love so much. He will be desperately missed. I have a 16yr old son who is in the Explorers program with the SLPD. He would like to make a difference just as Officer Espinoza did. The memory of this officer will always be in alive in someone's heart!

Isaac was a loving man, husband, brother, son, father and friend. He cared dearly about everyone he loved. Isaac was a man of joy everytime I saw him he was always smiling. He liked to look at the good things, but also deal with the bad, but in his own way. I admired Isaac so much I wanted to become a police officer because of him. He inspired me and still does. I am going to full fill that goal just for Isaac and when I make it I will dedicate it to him. I love the families and may God be with them in this time.

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Officer Espinoza's wife, daughter, parents and sister. My heart truly breaks just knowing that another law enforcement officer has paid the ultimate price while protecting us. I, too, know the agony and mind numbing pain that you are experiencing at this time as I unfortunately walked a similar path almost 8 months ago when my son was killed in the line of duty. Please know that Officer Espinoza was a true hero and did a job that only a chosen few can do. God bless.

It is hard to belive that I have known you for nearly 20 years. I will
always remember the times we had at the R-Ranch with your sister and
cousins.

It is so upsetting to find out that you have left this world at such a young
age. But I know that you are in a better place.

My prayers go out to your wife and family.

My heart breaks everytime I see that we've lost another, and reality sets in that I could be next. But everyday I still put on this uniform and do the job I was called to do, and pray that I will come home to my little girl at the end of my shift. To Officer Espinoza, you gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that your streets and family would be protected, God Bless you, you are TRUELY a hero. To your wife and parents: I cannot begin to imagine the hurt that you have right now. My heart goes out to you and I am praying for comfort for you. To Officer Espinoza's daughter: Your father gave his life to try and make a better future for you and your family. He will always be with you even though you cannot see him. His spirit will live on in you. God be with you and keep you in your hour of need.

The general public scrutinizes and immediately attacks the actions of the U.S. military fighting men and women in Iraq, and how the Commander in Chief is leading our troops to their deaths, but they fail to understand the purpose, the reasons, and the necessity of their presence. They hold signs shouting "No More War", "Stop Killing our Troops", etc...but what about the homefront war that our local law enforcement agencies are battling everyday. Do we easily forget what THEY sacrifice for our communities, for our neighborhoods, and our cities? If you must protest, protest for ALL of us as we all are fighting for YOUR freedoms. Thank-You Officer Espinoza for your contributions in keeping us safe and believing that our freedom is priceless. We salute you for standing tall and proudly wearing the uniform. Our heart felt thoughts to you and yours, and to those that knew you well.
