Reflections for Senior Border Patrol Agent Luis Alberto Aguilar

Whats up Louie! Its been several weeks now since I have been back from PW. It was great to be there to honor you. Things panned out for the best over all for PW in regards to my small part in honoring you. Your family looked great there and it was so nice to see them all there for you. Your son and daughter looked adorable in thier little custom made BP uniforms. Time went by so fast unfortunately, but every moment was very memorable. Mine was when we were all at the memorial wall at night and it was raining. It was not windy nor cold, it was like a rain fall frim Hawaii only in D.C. That blue laser was so bright in the rain. I have never seen it like that before. The moment was pure.

I do wish I could have been around for more of the events but the Lords calling was different for me. It was for the best and I know that you understand that. I will always keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

God bless my brother and rest in peace.

Hey Louie,

Love You

There is so much I want to say, but to sum it all up, I miss you. Words cannot express how proud of you I am, how proud I am to say that I knew you. They are airing a show tonight about you. I'm making everyone I know watch it. :) You are my hero. I love you.

While training, AGAIN, I heard about this awesome website and couldn't help looking for you. I remember when we got to Charleston, SC for DITP and the airport had lost your luggage. I kept that clothes I let you borrow. You know the ones you had the WHOLE time we were there. Even after your clothes showed up (LAUGHING). You know, I had accepted the fact that you could keep my clothes, but on the last day there, you made sure they got back to me. I'm glad you came into my life and made such a big impact. You had so much going on in your personal life, with your mothers illness, AND STILL you made time for all of us, and gave us pointers on how to use PowerPoint. I want you to know that you will ALWAYS have a place in my memory.

God bless you and all who mourn you. May God give them the strength to carry on. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your work to keep our borders safe, and God Bless you!

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

Today is a tough day. I'm missing you like you wouldn't believe. I miss your sweet smile. I miss when you'd tickle my neck and give me the biggest hugs. I miss hearing you brag about our princess and our papas. I miss your hilarious wise cracks, your passionate laughter and watching you make that hand gesture you made when you thought something was funny; the one where you’d slap your leg. We still laugh at your joke about hugging a certain someone and doing the split at the same time. You know what that’s about… I miss everything about you.

No matter how busy you were being a wonderful husband and father, you always took the time to check on your Big Sis. You were never too busy to listen to me ramble on and on about my twisted life. I miss that. I know I wasn’t great at answering my phone and I know how that annoyed you. I’m getting better at that because of you.

Till the day we meet again, Baby Bro. I love you. I will always love you.

You are gone but never forgotten. Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice. You now guard the borders of heaven.

You're family is in our thoughts and prayers. A little over a year has passed, and although we had never met, I now know what a great person you were and will always be to those who were blessed by having known you.

I was just thinking about you today, Louie. Keep an eye on us, bro. We'll take all the heavenly back-up we can get!

One year has passed since you were taken from us and more importantly from your family. I pray to God to give Erica the strength that she needs to live so that she can always tell your children what a great father/husband/person you were. Everytime that I am assigned to work the sand dunes I remember what happened and keep that on my mind. I have had a couple of new guys ride with me and I take the time to stop and tell them what happened and how you stepped up and showed how much you cared about this country and our family of brothers and sisters.

I will always keep the last time we spoke in the parking lot in my mind to remind me how much of a great person you were. Please keep an eye on all of us as things seem to get tougher every day that we go out.

I believe that everything in life our Lord has a purpose for. Whether its time, an event, giving life or taking it. Only our Lord knows why things happen in our world. On January 19, 2008, I was given the most humble opportunity to be with your beautiful family. It was difficult and sad but dont worry Louie, I never let down my motivation for a moment to be there for your family in any way that I could.

Know Louie that while your looking down at us from the heavens I look up to you. Some times for motivation, some times to reflect on my past but what ever it is, it's always something positive. Every one has a memory or a moment with you from work and I always hear great words that describe a great man, an awesome father, a loving husband a caring friend, a hard working agent and once in a while, even a smart aleck;I laugh the most with those stories.

Memories is all that I have of you and I thank the Lord that you were put in my path to share some of those with your family and our friends.I will never forget you Louie. I know what my purpose is for your family Louie and I am honored and blessed that I am able to fulfill that. Rest in peace my brother.


January 19, 2009

Today we honor your memory Louie and reflect on your sacrifice. I remember how you could keep everyone at Muster luaghing and make the best out of any situation encountered in the field. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Honey, I am thinking of you and wishing you were here in the midst of this sorrow. Our emotions and memories are so fresh especially for Luis and Arianna. They could not stop thinking of you today and everything reminded them of you. I am very blessed that you left me two wonderful gifts, our kids, to always remind me of your laugh, your walk, and your spirit. We cherish the moments you left us and they light up our hearts. I can not believe that a full twelve months have passed without your laughter, your love, and your connection to our past, present and our future.

I thank God for giving me the strength to overcome the pain. We love you and miss you. May your blessed soul rest in peace.
