Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Officer Sergio Carrera

Sergio Carrera was a loved and respected police officer, after attending the "EOW" ceremony today I spent the rest of the day thinking that he was taken too young and had a lot to still give in life in his profession and personally.

He is missed- although I only had brief interactions with him he impacted me in a positive way.

Dear Dad, stumbled across this page and read all of the other reflections. Decided to try it for myself. I read all of the ones my mom put on here and it made me cry. Reading all the these reflections reminds me what I lost and what I could have had if I didn’t lose you. But I did lose you. I lost out on knowing you and being able to be surrounded by your love. I lost being to have a full family with you in it. I miss you and I wish you were here. I struggle with your death and growing up without my dad 13 years later. Even if I don’t remember everything it still hurts. The possibility of what it is still lurking around each corner that I turn. I started high school this year and I wish you could’ve have been here to see me become the person i am today. To see the progress I’ve made despite the struggle and the feeling of loss for you, even if I can’t remember anything anymore. I want you to know that I am always thinking of you and i will always love you, no matter how many years go by.
Until we meet again

Wow brother I can't believe it's been seven years since you've been gone, not a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you. So much has changed in these last seven years and I know through the ups and downs you've been right by our side. Your sister misses you like crazy everyday, we all do. Your nieces are all doing well... I know you'd be the proud uncle you always were. I can't help but wonder where our lives would be if you were still physically here with us and it sucks that we'll never know. Thanks for letting me be part of your family and for you being part of my family. I'll never forget all the good times we shared together. Know that you are always remembered, I love you.

I think of you now and cant help but think about how different our lives would all be if only you could still be here with us. We miss you so much. The years keep slipping away so fast . It feels like we are so much older without your humor. We miss your funny stories and the funny face you used to make right before you would say the funniest part of your story. The things you used to do and say to make us laugh. I still repeat some of them from time to time to him to make him laugh and think of you and the goods times we used to all spend together. I know you can see our little family from where you are but I wish they could have met you. I know you never thought we would ever get around to starting a family but we finally did it and your right our lives are so much more happier with our kids in it . I think about your beautiful kids and know they love and miss you so very much . I pray for them . Thanks for helping to keep watch over him while he is on duty.we think of you often and know you are in a beautiful place. We will always love you and keep you in our heart's.

I have never met you, and never had the chance to know you. I remember working at the jail (RSO) and hearing about what happened to you. My heart immediately sank. I couldn't help but read what people have said about you on here. You seem like you were a great guy. My heart goes out to your family, friends and Rialto PD...

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

I took the kids to see you the other day. They couldnt wait to get there. Anthony and Destiny said they wanted to show you their Cheer and Football uniforms. Anthony said mom can you take a picture with me laying next to my Uncle. They had so many questions as they have gotten older and I would tell them how you would give me a hard time and make fun of me but how you did it in good fun. I see my kids and think of yours. With all the questions my kids have I can only imagine the question your babies ask. I cant explain to them the kind of person you were without crying. But I smile cuz you were able to leave an everlasting memory in my heart. I cant thank you enough for that!!
Forever In Our Hearts Big Serg!!
