5 years later and we still remember your name Isaac.

Your bravery and sacrifice represent the strength behind the badge. We do not live on without you. Your impact has already changed our lives. A gunman is off the streets because of you and my family is safer for it.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart and pray that your memory turns tears into smiles for your loved ones.

God Bless,

former LEO

You are missed...you'll always be a hero

I read this in the newspaper today and thought I would repeat it here. It was from a woman who had lost her husband. "It is important for people to understand that as I move into the future and find hope and joy, I live with the wounds from the past that will never quite heal."

Five years ago we all learned of your tragic death. I remember exactly how I found out...a mutual dear friend. My thoughts go out to Renata and your daughter. Prayers.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

Time never diminishes respect or love. Your memory will always be honored and revered. May your spirit continue to soar. Rest In Peace.

If I am unable to attend your remembrance ceremony this evening, I will light my own blue candle and pray for you this evening, and pray for solace for your grieving family that all love you so much.

Isaac,
Today is a day of reflection,a time to rememeber who you were as a person,a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson,a husband, a father,a giants fan,...a human being!! I know all of us who miss you, not only miss you today, but every day since you have been gone. Although I knew you briefly at Mark and Michelle's get togethers. I thought of you as a good man with so much ahead of him. I think we would have made good friends. I know that you watch over all who loved and cherished you. I know that you are with God watching over all of us down here! God bless your brothers from Oakland and Pittsburgh to aid you in your task with God. God bless you all!
Lou,
A friend

Five years now and I am still missing you. I think of you each day. I pray for you each time I run. I smile each time I see your daughter. She is so sweet and looks so much like you. I ask the Lord sometimes why he took you when you were so young, and in the middle of enlarging your home to better suit your young wife and daughter and entire family, but I get no answer. I just know that some officer in San Francisco was going to die at the hands of the devil and I cannot say that I wish it upon another, so as a good cop I grin and bear the pain. Today I drive a long way to join others in the ceremony of your death. But not a day goes by that I do not think of you, and each April seems to be the worst. Forever,

Isaac,

I am thinking of you today. I will never forget where I was when I learned of the news. Things are still so clear even 5 years later.
Know that you are missed and I will continue to pray for you and your family. I know you are in the best of company. Keep watch over your fellow brothers and sisters in blue.

Isaac -

I have read your reflections for 5 years now and see the obvious love and dedication of your wonderful family. The year they attended National Police Week in DC was my 2nd year and I sat next to your Aunt on a flight heading home. Their committment to remember you and honor you is inspirational. I lift a prayer for them today that they continue to heal and find strength in each other. Your mother writes so beautifully about the love and eternal bond between mother and child. A special blessing for little Bella. I too have watched my children grow up without their amazing Daddy. And a prayer of unending strength for Renata - I know the reality never ends. Although our departments were an ocean apart - we are all connected the sacrifice of our heroes. God Bless you for touching so many lives and for making the ultimate sacrifice so that others may be safe.

Happy Easter Isaac - He is Risen!

I cannot say it better than Sherm just did although I have been sitting here for about an hour and thinking about it. All I can say is I am thinking of you on this upcoming anniversary. I pray for you and your family every day. We will see you in the Garden.

The heavens above gain four more angels in blue. I'm sure You and Nick will meet them with open arms and show them the way. See you boys Friday night at the Garden.

Always in our thoughts
Forever in our hearts....

Watching the funeral services for the four officers killed, it all came back to your funeral. So very clear on how it still affects us, the tears just rolled down our cheeks. Getting close to your anniversary, it seems like it was yesterday. Your are always in our hearts and our prayers Isaac, and up to this day we always have something to say about you, we will always remember you and keep you in our prayers.

I think of you everyday and even more so when something horrific happened this past Saturday. The man above had summoned four officers to serve on his team. I pray for the families and friends and that he comforts them in days ahead.

Today is one of those days. Even though I haven't written in a while I think about you through out my day everyday. Every Holiday, Every special event in our daughters life..Another year has come since you left. So many things have happened. Today I thought of you more than usual. We had a nice dinner at your moms house and we talked about you and Ikaika. It made me sad. But we love spending time with them. and Isabella loves them so much! Bella is getting so big and beautiful. She is smart and has the biggest heart ever. She is an amazing child. God I'm so grateful for her. We talk about you everyday and not a night goes by that we don't say a prayer for you and all the officers that are out there working. We miss you so much!! I'm sorry for not writting more often, it's still hard to believe that you are gone. I'd just rather remember our last night together. I will always love you!

I became familiar with Isaac when I read his story a few years ago in the news.Isaac was, and is, an inspiration to me and no doubt to many other law enforcement officers.Whenever a dangerous and difficult call comes over the radio from dispatch I think to myself...."Isaac would go..."
