Reflections for Investigator II Cuauhtemoc "Temo" Estrada

Investigator Estrada,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC-especially in Panama and during Operation Desert Storm. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Cuauhtemoc was killed.

To Cuauhtemoc's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. My son was also your brother in green so I honor your service as a Marine and bid you semper fi.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Investigator Estrada gave to his community and the citizens of Illinois, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on December 20, 2013.

Investigator Estrada,

I know you will rest well in the arms of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over two years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.
