Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Daniel Jess Lobo, Jr.

Rest in pace brother.

It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.
They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast...
They look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.

Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun.
And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by...
And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.

They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.
Like men of steel, on silver wheels, they sparkle in the light...
then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.

Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind.
Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.

So if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe.
For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.

My daughter and I cried for your family when we heard your news. You see, we have just spent the last year walking the very same road you are beginning to travel. Know that God's peace that passes all understanding is there for you every moment of the day and night. His strength is what carried us through this very dark valley. God will rise up men and women to assist you and the girls just he has us. Know that our prayers are going out to you and your family and friends. We are walking the same road you are and if you or the girls ever need to talk, the Kern Co. Sheriff Dept. can find us. My heart goes out to you all. My warmest thoughts to you and yours.

Our Greatest Fear

Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
to many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.

On October 11th 2005, The Lord was told a message from an angel. In the message this small angel spoke quietly in His presence, saying "Father, I have brought you great news once again" and God spoke with a big powerful voice and said with a loving smile, "I already know, we have inherited another battle warrior and his name is Daniel Lobo. He has served Me and his fellow man well, I am eternally grateful for the job he has done, for in it he was able to glorify my name and presence, while giving unselfishly to those he served. I have promoted Dan Lobo to My Plane in Heaven, and from this day forward, he will live in Peace, he will never feel Fear, nor Cry again. This I say and it shall Be Forever. Now send the others forward to Open Their Wings and Open The Gates, I want to hear them singing with Joy, "Welcome Home Daniel Lobo, You Have Served Him Well, Here You Will See All Around You, Those In Blue, Who Went Before You, and They Now Welcome You Too" God then spoke to another angel saying "I want you to send a troop down to those who grieve their loss, and feel fear, I want the angel wings around those Children, That Family, and Every Comrade he served with, for they shall blot away the tears and numb the time awhile, although they will be sad to know he is gone to them, they will surely be joyful to know, That Today he Reigns In Heaven With Me and My Promise to them is This, his death on Earth is not forever, it is but a tick in time, you are promised by Me as it is Written, the next time you see Daniel Lobo, it will be in Heaven, where time, tears and fears are never again, no more" "The next time will not be but a short tick in time, but rather as I Have Always Promised, Forever, Eternal." "Till then, march on and know I am there with you this day, as yesterday, and will be till time is no-more"

Scott Parker, Texas Peace Officer

Our prayers and deepest sympathy go you and your family. I did not know Daniel peronally but everyone that I have talked had nothing but great things to say about him. This is for you and your family. "Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God." Mat 5:9 God bless you all.

Danny: I can only imagine what you felt as a motor man. When I was younger, I rode a Honda 400 and loved it. You took the danger and risks in stride. You were helping in a time of need. I can only pray that the God of mercy will grant your family, your family in blue, and your friends courage, strength and peace. God bless you

You started us in the right direction, and someday we hope to be as good a deputy as you were. We will always keep you in our thoughts and memories. We will see you sometime in the future.

Danny, I am thankful for our talk a few months ago. I'm sure that's the closest to apologies we'd ever get. When you rode off, I felt good knowing that all was well with you. I promise to be there for Kylie and Kadie as if they were my own but you already knew that. You will be missed.

Hey Danny,

I was thinking about our times on patrol together. I remember rolling code 3 together during the grand prix fire. It was major fun. Remember the Coors Light at the Beerhunter? How come you managed to get bit twice by two police dogs? That could only be a Danny Lobo story. Thanks for watching over Greg and Jason. I remember getting the call that they crashed their bikes 5 days after you. My heart sank until I heard they were o.k. Divine intervention. I know it was you and Ronnie helpin' them out.

Love ya, miss ya, and can't wait to have another Coors Light with ya.
Till then...

My dear Danny,
You will always be in my heart, you were my son in law and I loved you. You gave me two beautiful grand daughters Kiley and Kadie. I remember on Melanie and your wedding day and how it rained in the morning and we were so worried that everything would be a mess and then the sun came out and all was wonderful. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I have always loved your folks Dan and Gloria and sweet Eric. We will always be family and we share part of you, two wonderful girls. The boys and Mark will always be there for the girls. God Bless you my son.....
Ellen Kelly and family.

I NEVER DREAMED IT WOULD BE ME,
MY NAME FOR ALL ETERNITY.
RECORDED HERE AT THIS HALLOWED PLACE,
ALAS MY NAME, NO MORE MY FACE.
"IN THE LINE OF DUTY" I HEAR THEM SAY,
MY FAMILY NOW HAS THE PRICE TO PAY.
MY FOLDED FLAG STAINED WITH TEARS,
WE ONLY HAD THOSE FEW SHORT YEARS.
THE BADGE NO LONGER ON MY CHEST,
I SLEEP NOW IN ETERNAL REST.
MY SWORD I PASS TO THOSE BEHIND,
AND PRAY THEY KEEP THIS IN MIND.
I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ME,
AND WITH HEAVY HEART ON BENDED KNEE,
I ASK FOR ALL THOSE HERE FROM THE PAST,
PLEASE GOD, "LET MY NAME BE THE LAST!"

You will be missed.

October 21, 2005

I have known Danny for 30 years, when he and his family moved onto Evart St. in Montclair we became friends. I was 3 years older than him but we still had some great times together. There are many stories that I could share but my hands would be killing me. I will share them with Danny's girls as they get older so they will know more about him.

Danny, I will always be there for your family..


Your Friend,
