Deputy Aleman; Sergio, amigo, etc: This is my first time reading all of the other reflections that others had written long before this one.

I knew you long before you became a member of the law enforcement community and knew that you would serve with style that was all your own when you were appointed.

It seems like just yesterday you were taken away from all of us and the memories you left with all of us cannot be forgotten, but always cherished.

Thank you for being a friend, a damn good LEO, and an amazing husband/father.

One a very bright sunny day we can see you smiling down upon all of us, knowing that you are at peace & resting with our Lord.

Until we meet again...

Dear God,

I have come to the understanding that life leaves its imprints on our souls. Though the blood scorn bumps, bruises, and scars are no longer present on our bodies, the truths that become most evident are no longer seen with our eyes, nor heard with our ears, nor felt physically with our senses.

We could no longer rely on our senses, because our senses have become hidden truths that are just as much a part of our life as those truths that are self evident. That is, in order to make sense of it all you have to believe in something greater than yourself……

I am forced to believe in someone or something that goes beyond human understanding, to believe in something that goes beyond the conceptual paradigms that help explain ideas and theories. I could no longer depend on the sciences and even logic, since death is so much greater than our comprehension and understanding of life. Because death means you no longer believe with the natural senses, but with those senses that are not tangible. Now the only truth that becomes apparent is in our dreams, memories, or in you Lord.

I am broken between your grace and the torment of my memories… As I close my eyes I remember a child playing with wooden swords, paper pirate hats, and a wood broom as our horse. I remember staying late up at night as we looked at the snow capped windows filled with ice and waited for Santa. Early that morning, we would run to the Christmas tree to find the gifts already under the tree. We looked at each other maybe we might have better luck next year…

I remember it like it was yesterday. I would see my father drag his tired body up the stairs with oil stained trousers, tattered, and torn after working his fingers to the bone at a foundry. Later that day, he would still find time to take us to the park to swim. I remember my mother over a hot and heated stove as she prepared me and my brother’s favorite meal….

I remember laughing with him so hard that no one could understand what happened? I remember thinking how grateful I was to have someone so close and special in my life……….

Simply said, I say he was my older brother and his name was Sergio Aleman. With a broken heart I say he died on July 31, 2012 at 12:15PM in the line of duty for the Milwaukee Sheriffs Department. Forever I will feel an emptiness in my heart, until we meet once again…..

Love, your younger brother, Edwin Aleman

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

God full of mercy who dwells on high
Grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence
In the lofty heights of the holy and pure
who shine as the brightness of the heavens
to the soul of Sergio Aleman
who has gone to his eternal rest.

His resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden
Therefore; the Master of mercy will care for him
under the protection of His wings for all time
And bind his soul in the bond of everlasting life.
God is his inheritance and he will rest in peace
and let us say AMEN.
