Reflections for Police Officer Andrew Esparza

6 years. Can't believe it has been 6 years. Missing your laugh and your hugs. Your absence is felt daily.


April 14, 2013

My son today marks the 6 year, it has been a very hard journey. It feels as if it was just yesterday. My heart is broken you took a piece to heaven with you. I think about you every day. We have so many wonderful memories. You were an amazing son, uncle, brother and I am so proud of you. You left this earth doing what you were called to do. Your time here on earth was very short but I thank God everyday that he gave you to me. Rest in his heavenly presence. You are always on my thoughts and in my heart. I miss you and love you forever. Never forget IPD 966


April 14, 2013

We will meet again brother. This date still rings a bell. You still owe me a bow hunt, I won't let you forget.


April 14, 2013

Spent the night reading each one of the reflections left for you. I take comfort in knowing that so many people have prayed for us. I feel such pride when reading about the impact you made in so many lives.
I have no words to express the huge void in my life. A piece of me died the day u left. I look forward to the day I walk through the gates of heaven where I know u will be waiting with ur perfect smile. Until then, I will count my many blessing and treasure my memories. Thank u for being such an amazing, inspiring, and loving big brother. I miss and love u so very much!

Been thinking of you as the 13th quickly approaches once again. Drew, your faith changed my life and hopefully the lives of those around me. I couldn't believe getting that phone call since we had just been joking around the night before. Every day since then, I think of you when I see "fear not" as I proudly wear that bracelet in your honor. You inspired me to return to my faith and trust in our Savior. I hope your family knows that you continue to inspire people even now. I never shy away from sharing about how you have inspired me. I look forward to seeing you again one day in Heaven.

Your very grateful sister in Christ!!
