John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

It’s been two years now that you were called to be with the other angels in heaven. Not a day goes by that we do not think of you or your family. Your blessed parents, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and children all need your spirit as sometimes that’s the only thing that will keep a grieving family moving forward with their new normal. My son had the pleasure of serving as part of the Honor Guard on the day you were laid to rest. You and he lay closely together in the same century, the cemetery of the fallen,is what I call it. David, we miss you protecting our streets!! You will NEVER be forgotten! Your family has done everything to ensure of that and no matter what my position is, as a person, mother and resident of a city you protected, I promise you and your family to do everything we can to keep your memory alive. May you continue to Rest In Peace. We’ll take your job from here.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of all of you!!!! The Ortiz family has been a blessing to us through our loss of Agent Jose "Joey" Barraza. In fact, you all have more strength than you all know you have . We couldn't have asked for a better extended family, friends than the ones that David and Joey picked for us. We love you all and know that we didn't ask to be apart of this family of "loss" heart broken, deepest pain EVER any mother, father, sister, brother, our grandchildren and extended family will ever have to live with. However, with loving friends and family like you'all our bubbles of sadness have lights at the end of the tunnel now. Thank you for always being there for us.

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

To the Ortiz family, fellow officers, and all who call David beloved, 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.

This reflection is sent with the utmost for the dedicated service Patrolman Ortiz gave to his community and the citizens of Texas , and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 14, 2016.
