Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Daniel Jess Lobo, Jr.

Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. John 15:13

Your loved ones are mourning, A thousand tears we cry, The questions are endless,
Of God, asking why. I know it's what you chose to do, you vowed to give your life,
but I never thought the day would come, That you would fade into the night.
We’ll try to be strong and carry on, But it's hard, in so much pain,
Without you standing here with us, We'll never be the same. In the briefest moment,
Someone took your life, We'll make this one promise to you, and your memory will survive.
So, take your place in heaven, Spread your wings and fly, We'll see you again, in the end,
We know this isn't goodbye. In this silent moment of sadness, We gaze above and salute you,
You join the ranks of those who have fallen, and become an angel in green and tan.
As time goes by our broken hearts will heal. Somehow the memory of you will never disappear.
With God by our side the love will soon tune in.. Just like the Angels singing in the wind.
Though memories on days will sometimes hurt inside. Keep in mind the lessons we have learned.
And on days where the love seems to shine on through.. I cherish the moments that were spent with you.
Is it love or is it hate that lives amongst us all? Where do we go from here, do we turn away?
We should pray to God to guide us to His love above... So we can hear the Angels singing in the wind.

Hello Danny:
I have been looking at this site since the accident but have never written. I think it is time.
Your beautiful wife is such a very strong woman, we love her very much. We will do anything to make sure she stays strong. We also know that it will take some time before she is happy in her heart again.This was such a huge loss for her. She is so lucky to have a family such as my sister and Kenneth there for her. And Bryan what can I say, he is also suffering so much. He loved you. But with their strength she will heal.
I will be at the Memorial on Friday to see your name on the wall, not something I could have ever imagined but I will be there for our family.
I hope that you know we will be there for Jenny and Maddison for anything that they need.
Jenny: I Love You

It's been a while now since the funeral. I still think about you often. Thought you would like to know that most everybody from your motor class was there. The only thing I can think is that there was a need for more motor cops in heaven. Like Wayne said, "Head and Eyes". Just keep an eye on the rest of us until we get to where were going. Peace.

April 10, 2006

I worked with you in Motor School, Danny, and I was caught up in your enthusiasm. Your accident was a month after mine and I couldn't go to your funeral. I've asked myself a million times why I survived and you did not. The answer? Only the good die young. Remember, "Head and eyes".

Hi Danny,
We think of you daily and wish to God you were still here with us.
Everytime I see your Mom, my heart breaks.
When I went to see your folks the day after you went to heaven, your Mom said to me Ellen we will always be family we share the girls Danny gave us and thank you for loving my son. She also said when she saw Joey at the hospital she said Oh Lord don't ever let this happen to Ellen. Even in her terrible grief she thought of others.

To Deputy Daniel Lobo and his loved ones:

On this the fifth month after your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

My heart is still with your family and I look forward to meeting them in Sacramento and/or D.C. You’re all in our thoughts and our prayers.

Daniel, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Deputy Sheriff Daniel Lobo. I am so humbled by your valor and courage.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Daniel gave to his community and the citizens of Califonia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 11, 2005.

"Ever The Same"

We were drawn from the weeds
We were brave like soldiers
Falling down under the pale moonlight
You were holding to me
Like a someone broken
And I couldn't tell you but I'm telling you now

Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you forever in me
Ever the same

We would stand in the wind
We were free like water
Flowing down
Under the warmth of the sun
Now it's cold and we're scared
And we've both been shaken
Hey, look at us
Man, this doesn't need to be the end

Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down

Fall on me tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me
Forever it's you
Forever in me
Ever the same

You may need me there
To carry all your weight
But you're no burden I assure
You tide me over
With a warmth I'll not forget
But I can only give you love

Fall on me tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me
Forever it's you
Forever in me
Ever the same

Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same(Ever the same)

i love you danny i miss you so much n i knoe everyone else does to.... give nana a big hug for me ;)


March 3, 2006

i know kadie and mom have already told you but i've joined the explorers program at the chino hills station. its been fun so far. i have another meeting monday. i got my grades back today. 4 B's and 2 C's. im doing good in school now. we sent duke to obiedience school for 3 weeks and he comes home tomorrow! we are all so excited. i missed him so much. i'm almost 15, dad! i told mom that i didn't want a big birthday this year because i want a huge birthday for when i turn 16! i recently went to the doctor because i was having bad headaches. i had them for about 3 weeks straight. so they gave me a MRI but it came back negative, so i guess that's good. but now they have come back. the doctor also told me and mom that it could be the beginning of migraines. well, i better get off this site before i start crying. i love you daddy.
love always,

If Heaven

If heaven was an hour, it would be twilight
When the fireflies start their dancin on the lawn
And suppers on the stove and mammas laughin
And everybodys workin day is done

If heaven was a town it would be my town
On a summer day in 1985
And everything I wanted was out there waiting
And everyone I loved was still alive

Dont cry a tear for me now baby
There comes a time we must all say goodbye
And if thats what heavens made of
You know I ain't afraid to die

If heaven was a pie it would be cherry
Cool and sweet and heavy on your tongue
And just one bite would satisfy your hunger
And thered always be enough for everyone

If heaven was a train it sure would be a fast one
That could take this weary traveler round the bend
And if heaven was a tear it'd be my last one
And youd be in my arms again

Dont cry a tear for me now baby
There comes a time we must all say goodbye
And if that's what heaven's made of
You know I ain't afraid to die

January 21, 2006

Kiley has began the chino hills explorer group,i just need four more years until i could join.I remember when you taught me how to ride the little motorcycle that was fun!!!!!Well dad i will talk to you later:]BYE!!

Before there was a Daniel Lobo Jr., there was a Daniel and Gloria Lobo. This Deputy that dedicated his life to serving and protecting so many people was a result of the deep love that these two people share. Danny was raised with strong values and morales that were instilled in him by these two wonderful people. The fine MAN he grew to be is a reflection of the faith, love, dedication and commitment that his mother and father display everyday in their own lives. I read all of these beautiful Reflections left by loved ones and friends that miss him and it brings me to tears. However, as a parent myself, I can't imagine ANYONE missing him as much as his own mother and father and my heart aches for them. I pray that all who have been touched in wonderful ways by this Deputy are taking the time to thank his parents for their blessing which they shared with the world as they grieve endlessly for THEIR SON.

Thank you Danny and Gloria.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
He was a great man.

It has been so hard for me to visit this site. I miss ya so much Dude! I think of you often and miss those "lil remarks" you made to me on a daily basis. You always saluted me in the underground and I always told you to "knock it off". You were always trying to push my buttons weren't you?

Danny, I salute you! You are a brave person and we were are all lucky to have known you and worked the jail and the streets with you. I could always count on you responding to help whenever a situation got a "lil crazy".

I was glad to see you so happy riding your motor and doing something different from the day to day patrol gig. I never told you, but I was proud of you when you graduated from motor school. (The stupid male ego I guess.)

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! Keep an eye on all of us when you can.

*Tell Ronnie that the Minard's say "hello".

Wow … 2006 is here and you are up there. Danny, this isn’t the way it should be … but it is. Kiley, Kadie & Maddison are suffering a huge loss. However, you will live on forever in their hearts and minds. Family and friends will pass on stories about you to the girls to keep your memory alive forever. Even though Maddison is too young to recall her own person memories with her Daddy, you can be sure that Maddison’s Mommy, her grandparents, her uncles & aunts & your friends will ensure as she gets older that she will hear all about you.
This is also such a painful time for your wife Jennifer. I cannot even imagine how painful this is for her to lose her best friend, lover & life partner. I am just glad you two had the opportunity to protest your love for each other on your wedding day. Such an intimate moment for the two of you to share. You two found true love … and you showed it. The smiles you two exchanged always added a spark in your eyes. What a priceless gift. This was all a gift from God.
So many people here on earth miss you terribly … keep an eye on all of us left behind.
You are loved & missed more than you will ever know.
FYI: Jennifer, your girls & your parents are in my prayers. May God heal their hearts & give them an inner peace that transcends all understanding.

Your friend, Roni

Happy New Years DADDY, me and mommy miss you so much. Love always Maddison

P.S. I gave mommy a kiss for you

January 1, 2006

Hey Daniel,
Kiley, Kadie, and I were at one of our old favorite spots yesterday, El Loco. We now get the Chili fries for you and share them. We saw my Dad walk in and so Kadie ran up and gave him a hug. I'm so glad that we restored that relationship, I know that's something you always wanted us to do. We bought that movie "Fluke" yesterday at the store and you know what I'm talking about, I'm not crazy, right? (Duke and Fluke?)I wasn't up to any celebrations or parties yesterday. 2005 was the worst year of my life and to celebrate just seemed wrong. So Kadie and I were watching "Finding Nemo" (AGAIN) and I fell asleep on the couch at 9:45. Kiley had her friend Maddie spend the night and so the girls hung out and toasted the new year with Apple Cider, they even included Kadie all night-you would be so proud. They woke me up at midnight, I woke up long enough to say Happy New Year to you and send Don a message. Kadie and I got your sign when we were watching the movie, by the way...Thanks! I know 2006 will be a better year for us, with you up there in Heaven putting in a good word for us with GOD. Our daughters have gone through so much and to see the pain and suffering that they are going through is horrible. As adults we can deal with losing someone a little bit better...I think, but how do I explain to Kiley and Kadie that their pain will eventually get better, and will it ever really? I'm living with our babies, but what are they really feeling? I can't imagine what it feels like to be 10 and 14 and to lose one of their parents, their DADDY. As you know my Grandpa lost his DAD at Kadie's age and at almost 80 years old still feels such pain and sorrow from losing his DAD. He told my Mom that he knows exactley what Kiley and Kadie are going through. Our old friends and family are totally there for the girls though, and Joey says that some guys from the department that know the girls ask how they are doing. Xavier and Cari love them as if they were their own and I cherish that. I watch the way your Mom and Dad hold and hug the girls and know that they feel like they are still hugging you and they are. You are such a part of Kiley and Kadie, so much that I do call them Daniel from time to time, just as you would call them Mimi-Mels. They are really good at giving that "LOBO LOOK", you know what I'm talking about. Please continue to keep a close eye on our babies, they are my everything!!! They are the most wonderful gift that you ever gave me, the most wonderful gift that anyone could ever give me. We love and miss you Daniel.
