Although I did not have the pleasure for knowing you a long time, in that short time it was obvious you were a good person by seeing your relationship with your family. I hope that Ms. Nevarez,your wife, Viris, and Ryan remember and know how much u loved them. And may you rest in peace. From the bottom of my heart i wish that you are well.

To the family and friends of Agent Nevarez: I will be representing Agent Nevarez in this year's Police Unity Tour during Police Memorial Week in Washington D.C. In reading over Agent Nevarez's reflections, I can tell that he was a dedicated officer and a loving friend. I am so sorry for your loss, and am very honored to be riding for such a great person. I hope to meet each of you at the Memorial during Police Week.

"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 name is bonnie i'm Ray's wife. it's been one whole year and I just got the strength to visit this site. Reading all these commits means so much to me. I can't tell how much it helps. I just wanted to say ray loved his job very much. I would pray every time I saw him get into the car for his shift, I wont lie and say that I liked his job, I always worried about him when he lost single on his phone or his phone would die, I would stay up till he got home just to make sure he would get home ok. march 15 i died with him my heart broke and he took half of it, we were only married six months, but I thank god for those six months. he was my best fiend and now he's my angel. MY HEART goes out to all the familys of B.P agents ,live life like there is no tomorrow. And Cherish the time you spend with each other.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Everytime I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the man they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Agent Nevarez, especially to his wife. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Ramon, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Ramon's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Ramon's life was about so much more than the way he died. Ramon will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Agent Nevarez, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been four years but we still miss him terribly.

Wishing you brighter and better days,


Jocelyne :)

To Ramon's family and friends...

I extend my deepest sympathy to you. I know there are no words that can ease the pain you feel now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I did not know your son but from what I heard, he must have been a great person. May we all find comfort through our faith. May our sons who died together, rest in peace knowing they were loved. I thank them for their service to our country.

Ray what can I say man when I got the call the morning of March 17 about what happened I did not believe it, I thought Esqui was joking like we always did, I called your cell phone hoping you would answer and left you a casual message. I can't grasp the idea that you are no longer here. You were a great friend, and I have never met another agent who loved his job as much as you. I will miss your weekly calls with all the crazy stories. I have actually called your cell and mid ring remembered that you are no longer here. It comforts me to know that you are with your father. I will miss you greatly Beeeeeeeeee Peeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Ramon when I first met you the first thing you'd say is how much you wanted to become a Border Patrol Agent and some time later when I saw you again you had just graduated and were very proud of accomplishing your dream..you told me how I should go for it and become an agent as well and you believed I'd make it..well I did..and I never thanked you for the words of encouragement..so I'll thank you now for opening my eyes to this career.I'll remember you for having a smile and enthusiasm everytime I saw you as others will too. Now I will watch the line as you did in your time in the patrol. Rest in Peace Always. till we meet again..
