Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Daniel Jess Lobo, Jr.

Danny, I miss you. Riding with you was always a kick in the pants! Your sense of humor and your quick wit kept me from thinking about the stupid things that were going on around us. You had the ability to shrug off the bad things that would send another up in flames. I miss you brother.

Hi Danny,
We had a lovely time Sunday at Melanie's house, she made a great dinner. We all knew you were there with us, what a blessing. It is always so lovely to spend time with your parents. The girl's bring such joy to them, and to us. The girls make them laugh and smile, you can see the love for them in their eyes. There are tears, but there also is the laughter when we talk about the old days.
Always in my thoughts and prayers

Happy Thanksgiving Daniel, We'll put our lights up in honor of Daddy this weekend. We miss you tremendously, I don't think it will ever get any easier to deal with you being gone. Just sitting here now I'm in disbelief that you're gone and I want to break down and cry...I do have my faith that you're here watching over us though and one day we will all be there with you. It's just not the way it was supposed to be. You were supposed to be the one teaching Kiley how to drive and taking her to get her permit. You were supposed to scare all the boys away from wanting to date her. You were supposed to guide our Kadie Rose and watch her blossom just like Kiley. You made beautiful daughters Daniel and I thank you for that precious gift.

Girls & Mom,

Your dad worked in to protect the city I live in. I have read many of your wonderful letters you write to him. I wished my girls had that same outlet.

Their dad died 8/18/05 at 44yo and as a mom you fix everything for your children but this is one thing that a mom can fix. Unless you have lost a parent no one knows who you feel. The first year was one of the most hardest times I have ever had raising them. My youngest daughter never til this day uses the word "was" she had been really angry with GOD she had so many questions to ask GOD put I notice now slowly that it is starting to change. My oldest daughter is a cheerleader and she dedicated her cheer box (they use the to do cheers on at the football games) Both girls still cry alot but now so much of fear of him being gone but because he will not see my oldest graduate this year or my youngest learn to drive this year. Or walk them down the ile when they marry, how their first baby. They wear their urn lockets with their dad's ashess in them so that they no that their dad is still with them. My daughter Erin has this poem on several bracelets, on her memorial cheer box and many other things
Some day when I get better with cutting & pasting I will paste the picture of her cheerbox to show you.

One nite a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to him the other to the Lord
When the last scene flashed before him he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when i needed you most you would leave me."
The Lord replied. "My precious precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

This poem has brought confort to the girls and I so many times.

no one will ever understand your feelings unless the other person has had the same loss experience. sitting my children down and telling them that their daddy had died was the hardest and will always be the hardest day of my life as a MOM.

So what i guess i am trying to say is there are other young girls just like you having the same thoughts and feelings. You are not alone. So many times I think how much you sound like my children

Daniel, May GOD keep you at peace for all eternity.

My thoughts are with your loved ones on this first anniversary of your end of watch. I know it will be a very hard day, but then again all the days are hard. There are no magic words I can offer to help them with their greif except all they can do is take one day at a time. I know how your father feels as I walk in shoes. I also lost my son in the line of duty. It's okay to shed tears as those tears come from the heart and show the love you have for your child. When we lose our parents we are called orphans, when we lose a wife we are called a widower, when we lose a husband we are called a widow, but when you lose a child it is so terrible that there is no word for it. Dan, stay close to your loved ones, come to them in their dreams and show them your smile to let them know you are okay. Protect them from harm and those officers still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten.

It is always hard to lose a good one. From the reflections left by your family, friends and co-workers, I know you were one of the best.

May you patrol those golden streets in eternal peace and safety. Rest well on the wings you've earned.

May God grant peace and comfort to those who knew and loved you on this most difficult of days. God bless.

Your brothers and sisters in blue carry on in your honor.

Danny, one year ago today. We love you and miss you sooo much! As always, we are here for Jen & Maddison. We know how much Jen is hurting and missing you terribly. Your lil Maddison is growing up so fast! She is such a doll. Danny - or ML as Bri would call you, the irony of your passing ... is that it has brought the gang so much closer. Please know that every time we get together, we know you are there and feel you in spirit. (Corky jokes and all) We have enjoyed getting to know Jen and love her like family. Please keep watch over all of us left behind. We also ask God to embrace Jen, Maddison, Kiley, Kadie and family during this most difficult day.

I saw your family at the Memorial in Sacramento. Boy, do I wish none of us had to be there. May God Bless You, Your Family, and Your Department. I will have a good thought for you and yours today.

I can't believe it has been one year already. There is not a day that goes by that you are not remembered or thought of or missed. I just wanted to say that I miss you very much (although I don't know if I miss that sarcastic mouth of yours!!) But that's what made you who you are!! I hope you are up in heaven looking over your three girls and watching out for them. And please also give Jennifer, Bryan, her mom & dad, your parents, and your brother the strength to make it through everyday because I know that some days it is very difficult for them. I will be out visiting you at your site today, so until then, be good.

I can’t believe it has been 1 year… It seems like I was just talking to you. Maddison is so amazing and I am so thankful for this perfect little girl, she is so much like you. I am sure you are whispering in her ear to put her up to some of the things she does. Then you are sitting back laughing!!!! I cant express how much we miss you. You are always in our hearts and thoughts.
I am delighted to see how many people are still thinking of you and missing you.

Love you forever


October 11, 2006

Oh Danny, I am just sick to my stomach ... it has almost been a year. Every day since October 11th, 2005 has been sad, but tomorrow will be especially difficult for a lot of us. My love, support and prayers go out to your wife Jen, your 3 beautiful girls: Maddison, Kiley, and Kadie and your family and friends. Please know we love you and miss you. We are all going to get together in your memory ... the good ol' gang ... to cherish our precious memories of you.
Thinking of you and all those left behind.
We'll be sure to listen to "Beer for my Horses."

Dear Danny
This has been such a hard year, for all of us. I look at Melanie and the girls and I see such pain in their eyes. I wish I could make it easier on them but I haven't any answers, all I can do is hold them and wipe the tears. I hurt so much for your folks, Erik and your family. My prayer is that all who love you and miss you so much will help comfort each other. I think of you daily and have wonderful memories of you. Please watch over Melanie and the girls, they love you and miss you so much. I thank you again Danny for the beautiful girls you gave us.
Until we meet again

Tommarow will be a year, and its gonna be one of the hardest days of my life. Looking at your picture right now makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time. I want to laugh because I know your in heaven partying it up, and of your personality, but then i want to cry because you're gone and no one can bring you back. Mom says I look like you and Erik and she said that im getting taller and ill probley be taller than Kiley but you know what, I think shes just saying that to get my hopes up because as you know im am SHORT! Oh yea and now im getting fat, I DONT FIT IN MY PANTS! A few days ago one of my friends asked me if my dad was a cop (because i have a picture of you on my thingy) and i said yea he was a deputy for San Bernandino County but(theres always that "but" that ruins the whole story) he died on October 11 2005. When i said that my dad was a cop i broke down ("WAS" i HATE that word) now i cant say oh yea my dads a cop i say my dad was a cop but but buttt im not gonna make myself cry i now can say," My dad "was" a cop but is now a "hero"."
Thats what you are to me, Kiley, and everyone.
Dad we miss you and love you so much.
