Officer Uribe,

I just recently had the honor of meeting some of your family and they are a great group of people, I know you are very proud of where they are today.
Thank you so much for what you did for your community and please keep watch over us all.

We lost another officer today to yet another senseless act. Why does this keep happening? Another widow, and two more children without their dad to help guide them. It breaks my heart and scares me so much when it comes to Adam. He wants to go back into patrol. I know I cannot stop him, and I am very proud of him no matter what he chooses. But I don't want to lose him. Please watch over him Dad. I know I am saying the same prayer that is said so many times by so many others, but I still have to say it.
We all still miss you so much. Times like these remind us of the pain we still carry within our hearts and the empty space left in them when we lost you.
The grandkids miss you still and think of you each day. They always end their bedtime prayers with a big "I love you" to their Tata. We will never forget you and we know that while we cannot see you, you are still with us.
Love you Dad.

I was watching the news tonight when the horrible news of another Phx Officer dying in the line of duty by gunfire hit me like a ton of bricks. My family and I were stunned and our thoughts quickly turned to our memories of the horrible day you passed. We literally live on the next street of where the suspects in your shooting dumped their car. Our childrens' schools were put in lockdown and I remember picking up my youngest son and watching 4 or 5 little first granders spontaneously hold hands and say a prayer for their hero officer. I think of those children now and what might go through their minds when they learn yet another officer was killed in the line of duty a little over two years later. Our hearts grieve with your family, and now with his. May flights of angels wing him to heaven to that special place we know you are, Officer Uribe, with other public servants who've served our community well.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

My love, while I chose not to recognize the date of your passing (I refuse to let the pain of your death ruin my memories of you...) never a day goes by that I don't miss you, think of you, ache to feel your arms around me and see your easy smile. After two long, long years, I remember you on happy days-our anniversary, the birthdates of our children, the day we went out for the first time, and all the days we shared smiles (every day...) You gave so much of yourself to your family, and to me, and never will I take for granted the gift that you were and continue to be in our lives. As I watch our children grow, I see more and more of you in them, and my heart swells with pride that I am your wife and the mother of your children, and my stepchildren. I know in my heart and soul that you watch them blossom into the wonderful people that they are, and that you share their accomplishments with me, with all of us.
Know that you are loved, missed, and NEVER, EVER forgotten.

David was a GREAT man. I, unforutinatly, did not get to know him on a personal baises but I did see him patrole the streets and I could tell that he loved his job with all of his heart. I have the privlige to know his son that is on the department and I can see Dave living through him. I am sorry for your loss and I am speechless at telling you how much of an honor it was to have him serve for Phoenix. God Bless you all.

My thoughts are with your loved ones on this 2nd anniversary of you being called away from duty. I know the pain they still feel in their broken hearts for they love you dearly and always will. Continue to keep watch over them and those officers still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line. You will never be forgotten.

Remembering you on your second anniversary in Heaven. God had a plan and although we don't understand it now, we will when it is our time. Rest in peace blue angel...

Two years have now gone on.
I chose to reflect on the good that was your life, on the blessing and privelege of knowing you.

I am stuck on a song--"In the Blink of an Eye", by Mercy Me. That is now "Dave's song" to me. You truly lived your life as if every moment counted.

I thank you for your example of quiet dedication to the right thing. And for your humor! We miss you, "Stealth Dave"!

Time has not diminished your memory or sacrifice.

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!
Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!
And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!
Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!
O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!
And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!

Thursday will be the second year without you here with us. I took the kids to the State Memorial and everything came back to me. It was like I was back there as a "First Year Survivor", holding on to Adam's hand with all my might, and trying to be as strong as possible for the little ones, Nana & Tata, and Adam. Jeff, Jean, and Gary were taking care of Kerry so I knew she would be in good hands. Somehow though, this year was a little harder. I didn't have any of the other members of our family there. Just me and the midgets. Adam and Aisy had to work, and others, well, they didn't make it. Thankfully I knew enough people, the Hopkins family, Cathie and her family, Sherry and her family, Our sweet Colleen, Jan, and many more. They were my rocks that night.
It hit me hard though to know that since you left us, there have been 10 more names added to the wall.. It hurts to know that there are more families out there feeling the pain we felt and the pain we still feel. I know you are forever with us. We still wish we could give you that one last hug. Watch over us dad.. We are trying to do what is right, and we also never want to let you be forgotten. We love you and still miss you so much. Good night Dad, we'll chat soon. Love you.

P.S.~ Please keep an extra eye on that boy of yours. He is doing the best he can in what he does, but he misses you so much, too.

After I became a dispatcher, yours was the first line-of-duty death of someone I "knew". Well, I didn't really know you, but I do know your niece. She graduated from college the weekend after your death, and I remember thinking how sad that on a weekend that your family should be celebrating her success, they were mourning your loss. I know I still think of you often, and I hope your family has achieved some comfort in knowing that others care and appreciate your sacrifice and theirs. Rest in Peace.

Another Holiday Season has passed without you. It is hard to believe that this is the second Christmas we haven't heard your laugh or given you a hug. We know you are still with us, we feel you every now and then and you know we talk to you. But, we still miss you very much. And we have never stopped loving you.
Aisy and I decorated for you this year, I know you probably think we're the biggest dorks! But hey, lol, you always loved Christmas. :) Alyssa even helped us this year. I was very happy to have her and Aisy there. It made it a little easier to be able to laugh while trying to get the garland in your tree.. :) We also cleaned off alot of the water deposit from your headstone. We were amazed at how much it shined afterwards!
Your grandkids still talk about you. They miss you so much. Allie still cries every now and again and asks when you are going to wake up. It's hard having to explain to her that you went to the angels, but she is beginning to understand. Dakota and Bree just miss you. They always ask Adam what you did with him when he was this age or that. And Adam loves telling "Tata" stories. I think it is helping him heal remembering how you did stuff with him.
Well Dad, I will let you go for now. Don't have to much fun up there. Keep an eye on all of us, and we will be missin ya till we see ya again!! Love You Dad.
