Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Sergio Aleman

To the family of Deputy Aleman, the loss of a loved one brings pain, grief, and the feelings of helplessness. Jesus personally knew the pain of a loved ones death, “Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping… groaned in spirit and became troubled… Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11: 33, 35). Jesus’ display of grief serves as encouragement for us that he hates death and has been granted the authority to do something about it. Jesus taught that someday “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29); (John 11: 38-44)

God and his son Jesus both understand your pain and will act to put a permanent end to death, “As the last enemy, death is to brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) God’s promise of the resurrection as found in the Bible can be just as comforting for your family as it has been for mine after the sudden death of a relative. Isaiah 25:8 reads, “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord will certainly wipe tears from all faces.”

God is eager to give hope to all people that he will act to rid the world of the pain, suffering, violence and distress we now endure, “For here I am creating a new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” (Isaiah 65: 17) A peaceful future is promised by God, “The wicked one will be no more … But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth.” (Psalm 37:10, 11); (Psalm 46:9; Isaiah 2:4)

We can have hope and confidence that the relentless enemy death that pursues all of us will soon be gone, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away … Write, because these words are faithful and true.” (Revelation 21:4, 5)

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother.

To the family, friends and colleagues of Deputy Sheriff Sergio Aleman.

My heart is filled with great sadness at the lost of your loved one and fellow sheriff's deputy.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, whether you wear a Badge, or a Shield or a Star upon your chest, whether you work in a small town or a large city, whether you work in Detention Facilities or out on Patrol, whether active duty or retired, we are family, a law enforcement family, a brotherhood, a band of brothers having walked the line of good over evil knowing that at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community.

For Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do.....serving your community making a better and safer place for us all.

Deputy Aleman status.....Deputy Aleman status.....Deputy Aleman status.....
Attention all units....DEPUTY SHERIFF SERGIO ALEMAN IS NOW 10-42
Rest in Peace my Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN !!!

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization.
As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
I have given my life so that others may live in peace.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.
You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

Rest in peace brother. Thank you for your service. Now please, everyone, we are NOT invinceable and seatbelts DO save lives. Yes, I have unbuckled dead people but rarely so please, let's all be careful out there and go home to our families at the end of our shift and wear your seatbelt!

May i go now? Do you think the time is right?
May i say goodbye to pain filled days and endless nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example i tried to be.
So can i take that step beyond and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first. I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.
I want to go. I really do, it's difficult to say.
But i will try as best i can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears.
The memory of the times we've had will take you through the years.
I'll not be far..I promise that, and hope you'll always know,
My spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me, you know i love you too.
That's why it's hard to say goodbye and end this life with you.
So hold me now; just one more time and let me hear you say
Because you care so much for me. you'll let me go today.
