My son:

Happy Father's Day! I will always remember the great father you were to Isabella and all the precious moments you shared with her that I was blessed to share also.

I love you and miss you,

I never met you but I have learned about you over these past 5 yrs. One day I sat and read all of your reflections up until now and it was like a good book I just couldnt put down! Its so amazing to me to see how many people love you and look up to you. You must have been a one of a kind and I wish that I had met you atleast once! The reflections your mother and wife have left you over the years are so heart warming and others truly hit a spot in my soul! I don't know why but when I am going thru a difficult time in life I come to your reflections and I look at your picture and some how I'm able to go on,I feel a sense of calmness.what can it be?
Often times I wonder how your wife is doing,you were both so young and at just the beginning.she is so strong for your daughter and I admire her for has been a dream of my husbands to be SFPD. He wants to follow in the foot steps of his grandfather who was also an SFPD. I'm am excited for him and anxious but at the same time I am petrified,I feel like I see this story replaying and I'm scared for him,for me and for our baby boy, but he knows what he wants and all I can do is be behind him .

Dearest Son:

I spent the weekend with Isabella.
She is so much like you.
She looked into my eyes
with her big green eyes.
Looking into her eyes
was like looking into your eyes.
I was stunned for a minute
at how it was like looking at you.

We played catch in the front of our house.
She is such a good catcher.
I told her that she was a good catcher like her daddy.
She was so proud and happy to hear she was like you.

I miss and love you,

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

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."


April 14, 2009

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.

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!

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,

Auntie - Sgt, Retired

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

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.
