Reflections for Police Officer Ryan Embert Stringer

Officer Stringer,

A portion of the Interstate 10 freeway in Alhambra has been dedicated to you in your memory.

As I drive past the memorial, I am reminded of the great service California Peace Officers continue to provide each and everyday. Thank you for your service and may you rest in peace.

While working LAPD Hollenbeck Division, I remember the loss of Officer Stringer clearly. Today my watch honored Officer Stringer's memory and acknowledge the ultimate sacrafice he gave.

To the family and friends of Officer Ryan Stringer, his fellow officers, and most especially to Ryan:

We honor your service to your community as a law enforcement officer. You will always be remembered and revered. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of our entire family, I wish to extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Ryan was killed in the line of duty. It is obvious he was well-loved by many and well-respected by his peers as reflected in the loving reflections left for him.

May his loved ones continued to be supported by their law enforcement family and other police survivors. Our family grieves with you and for you. To Ryan's family, you are in my heart's embrace today. I share your anquish in losing a beloved family member which surely has to be life's greatest sorrow.

This was your family's first Christmas without you. They are all in my thoughts and prayers during these difficult days.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Ryan gave to his community and the citizens of California, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 10, 2011.

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 Officer Stringer. 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 Ryan 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 Ryan's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Ryan's life was about so much more than the way he died. Ryan will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Stringer, 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 & a half years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

Ryan, I sit here crying thinking of how much I miss you. It's been 2 months and we still wait for you to come in the door and tell us how your day was. We are so proud of you for the man you are and the people who have told us about the nice things you have done while at work. Missed the dove hunting opener with you this year. Rest in peace with our Lord and someday we will be together again. You are still my Hero. Love to my Son, Dad.

I was shocked and saddened to hear the news today from the Alhambra newspaper! I was one of the Alhambra residence who had the privilege to have met Ryan during a minor incident in my apartment last year. Ryan was professional and friendly. My deepest sympathy and condolence to his family and friends. RIP Ryan. You are truly missed!

May God bless the family and coworkers of this young man and help them heal according to his will. May he also be with the other officer involved and give him strenght to overcome this painful event in his life and career. They say time heals all wounds but I know from previous lost brothers that the scars remain. We know now that you are as safe as anyone would ever dream to be in your new watch. Rest in Peace my brother.
