One more year since you were called to the Lord. We love you & miss you so much Eddie. You left a huge void.

Thank you Mr. Laperal and Deportation Officer who have taken time from your busy daily lives to reflect and leave a soothing note. We sincerely appreciate your gesture. God Bless.

Agent Rojas,

I remember seeing and greeting you in the halls of Yuma Sector. Unfortunately we never had the opportunity to work together. I regret that. But I have heard great things from the guys who worked with you. The BP and DHS misses you.

I have prayed for Agent Rojas for days now, and probably will continue to do so while I have the opportunity to do so. Thank you Agent Rojas: your service to the community has made all our lives a wee bit better. I will not forget so soon.. but wherever you are, forgive and forget, let the past remain the past.. find peace in the present. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Salamat Po.

The Rojas Family would like to express DEEP gratitude to Lieutenant Shahram Fard for his selfless, caring, and awesome way of honoring our beloved Eddie's memory. You see, Lieutenant Fard rode on his bicycle from Reading, PA to DC - 200 miles!

Actions such as Lieutenant Fard's remind us that Eddie is STILL with us. THANK YOU SIR!!!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

I didn't know Agent Rojas, but am honored to be riding in his memory. On May 10, 2012, I and other LE Officers, will depart Reading, PA. on a 200 mile bike ride to DC in honor and memory of Agent Rojas and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The funds I raised through contributions from friends and family will go to COPS and ODMP. Each rider will wear a bracelet that is inscribed with the fallen hero's information. I am honored to wear Agent Rojas's bracelet and hope to connect with the family to pass it along to them. If you can help me with connecting with the family to provide them the bracelet, please email me at [email protected] Thank you.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time 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 officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Agent Clark. 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. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Hector, 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 Hector's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Hector's life was about so much more than the way he died. Hector will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Agent Clark, 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 fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eight years & a half years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

I'm sorry, man.

It's weird. You come into work and think that you're going home at the end of the day to see the kids or have brews with the broes. Some of us don't get to.

I wish you the peace you deserve in the afterlife

Eddie....I still can't beleive you are no longer with us. I am honored to have worked with you. You were a great man, Agent and friend. You will be missed deeply.

Rest in Peace Brother, we miss you.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
