Reflections for Police Officer Diego Moreno

Greater love has no man than this, that he who lays down his life for his friends.
John 15:13

You were a man with a heart of gold, you are missed by every person you came into contact with. You are a hero.

Dear Family of Diego, both immediate and extended brothers / sisters in uniform / plainclothes. I've moved to Snohomish County, WA just over a year ago. I was heartbroken when I saw this incident all over the local news. Right before my academy class started in 1981, an LA County Female Reserve Deputy (Connie Worland) was accidentally shot and killed by her full time partner. At my first assigned Sheriff's Station, a great Deputy and wonderful occasional partner of mine accidentally shot another Deputy (Darden Hollis) while shooting at a suspect. Anytime a cop accidentally kills another cop, the event is double tragic. My heart goes out to all involved. I went to the Kent PD yesterday to drop off an LASD uniform shoulder patch for Diego's young son. He collects LEO patches. It's just a token of my condolence and I hope this addition to his collection brings him a tiny moment of happiness. Love to all and thank you for your service and support.

I pray that everyone will find comfort in Revelation 21:4, where it says "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." Until we can see all of our loved ones again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

Officer Moreno, your 8 years of service to the citizens of Kent, Washington, will be missed but not forgotten. It is so unfortunate that you made the ultimate sacrifice for your community, due to the irresponsible actions of those who break the law. May GOD bless you and your family.

Please excuse my unintended error in my previous reflection. It should have read as follows:

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

To the Moreno family, fellow officers, and all who call Diego 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Moreno gave to his community and the citizens of Washington and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 22, 2018.
