Reflections for Police Officer Andrew Esparza

Today, 15 years after your end of watch, we still think of you and are grateful for your sacrifice.

“And I heard a voice from heaven saying, ‘Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ‘Blessed indeed,’ says the Spirit, ‘that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!’”

Thinking of you and your family today sir.

Just sitting here in this cold rainy, stormy day, wishing I could pick up my phone and call you. You are missed everyday.
Your dad is training for a half marathon the end of February, he will be running to honor YOU and other fallen heroes. I know you will be right there with him to give him the little push. I know you would be so proud of him….
I love you son!!!

Even though I never met him, the stories I’ve herd sound amazing. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about my uncle. He really is my motivation to keep going.

11 years on the 13th....... How can it be, some days it feel's like yesterday, and some day's it feel's like forever. I have missed you everyday. Your birthday is coming up on the 29th... It really is a hard month. I will say I know you are always with me... You help me get through one day at a time... I know one day we will all be together again.
God has really been good to us, he gives us peace that surpasses all understanding. He is blessing us with another granddaughter. Although some of our gbabies didn't get to meet their uncle they all know you, we talk about you all the time.
I love you my son!!!

I miss you so much. You were another dad to me and watched me grow up. Thank you for being my best friend and loving me. Although I was young when you passed, you always had a special place in my heart and always will. You are such an inspiring hero and to this day has taught me to care about other people as much as you did. Thank you for trading your life to save others. A true hero you were and I will love you forever. Thanks for being my guardian angel, keep an eye us we need you. Until I see you again.

Never forgotten, and never will be.

To lose someone so special
is really hard to bear
it hardly seems believable
that you're no longer there

You left us far too early
before your time, it seems
and now you'll never have the chance
to fulfill all those dreams

However hard it is though
we'll take comfort in the thought
of all the memories we have
and the happiness you brought

You always lived life to the full
but ours will not be the same
until the day when we can see
your smiling face again

Love and miss you always

Andrew, your parents are good friends of ours that we met because we became apart of the law enforcement family not by choice, but because we lost our son in 2016. In fact, Joeys birthday was the day of your end of watch. We know all to well how your parents feel and they know how we feel. I’m sure God put us together for a reason, I’m thankful for your service and can’t wait to someday meet you when I get to heaven with my so. Don’t worry Andrew, we’ll be here for your family no matter what. May you RIP.
