Reflections for Police Officer Ryan Embert Stringer

Thinking of you a bit more on this day. I know I will run into you in heaven one day. We'll make up for that Monday we were supposed to hang out. I'll never forget that Saturday before you went to work and called me. Never would have imagined it'd be our last conversation. Here on Earth we don't understand why life works the way it does, but im sure we'll understand in heaven. Please come say hi in my dreams. See you Ryan . XOXO

Hey Ry. Just thinking about you. It's Memorial Day and I miss you like crazy. This doesn't seem to get any easier. I feel your absence in so many ways. You are not forgotten.

Hey Ry, 2020 already and we all miss you a lot. Still think of you every time I take your truck out and go off-road. We sure had a lot of good hunting trips together... Seems like yesterday we went out together. Guys at the Department still remember and talk smack about. I guess they still love you. Your family will never forget you. Love Dad

Ryan, i miss you friend. I will never forget that last phone call on Saturday July 9th 2011 when u called me before u went in to work. I was looking forward to hang out with you that week. God has a plan for all of us, a plan that i dont understand, but have to have faith and believe in his plan. Just want to remind you that i love and miss you. After i left Alhambra, i've worked at 2 other agencies and its amazing how so many people that never met you know of you and how much your loss hurt them. Well our hang out day is still pending. See you in heaven Ryan. Love you lots!

Ryan, 2016 has been a very difficult time for everyone in law enforcement, as I am sure you have been able to see from up there in heaven. All of the craziness here just got me to thinking about that horrible night five years ago when I was called to respond and assist from next door. The horrible memory still haunts me. Rest in Peace Brother!

Well said Sonny, not a day goes by I don't think of Ryan and the memories we shared. It does not seem like 5 years ago since he departed from us. He will forever be in my thoughts and prayers as well as you guys.

Ryan, It's been 5 Christmas since you passed. Your friend's, buddy's and co-workers and family are still heartbroken with your loss. Your Mom is still having to deal with your loss and having a hard time with missing you. You are still our Hero and some day thanks to the Lord we will see you again.

4 years ago today we were in Washington DC Memorial to Honor you Ryan. The time has passed but the memories are still there. We still are so proud of you and miss you so much. I pray for all the families going through the pain and emotions of losing a love one. Our lives have changed, but because of you we are better and safer. Always in our thoughts every day.....

Ryan, the hole you have left is unimaginable. This will be the second Christmas without you. My mind still cannot accept this. How is this possible? As I sit here at the kitchen table I still remember seeing you drive up so many times to park in front of our house. But no more. I can only wish. Our life is dramatically different with you gone. What happened to all the hopes and dreams we all had? You were loved by so many! God has and had a plan but I can't see it. I can only look forward to seeing you again in heaven. It is so hard to live without you and so hard to believe you are gone from this earth and our lives. My love continues forever for you and the pain is finally becoming bearable some days. I can't believe this happened. It is now over 500 days since you left us...and I still think of the day you last walked out the door. Who could ever dream it would be the last time. My only wish is that you were still with us. I can only have faith that God's plan makes more sense. Wishing you were here with us. I still see the butterflies to remind me of you. Love, Your Mom
