Reflections for Agent Daniel Allen Ross

I had a dream about you not too long ago.
It went like this:

I just woke up from the most real dream I've had in along time. I woke up crying like really crying.
I saw my dad in my dream. He was telling me he was in New Zealand. We were on some bus or something I'm not sure.
I said why haven't you reached out? No answer.
I told him we moved and bought a house he said I know I really like that Eric reminds me of me.
He smiled a few times. We did hug at some point.
Then he disappeared and I heard myself saying because he died he isn't here anymore. He isn't here anymore. Then I woke up.
What a dream I swear it was so real breaks my heart it's not.

I haven't seen him in my dreams in a long time so I had happy tears and sad ones. I miss him.

Time may go by as it should, but the void left with me hasn't changed.

Until I see you again.

Terrible to see this. I have looked for you for years and thanks to DNA technology advancement, just today I was able to connect to other Ross family members (Harvey Ross - 3rd cousin) I found through 23 & me.. only to find out that you were already gone. I never even had the opportunity to meet you, know you or to even see what you looked like until today. My heart is shattered knowing that you died so senselessly at such a young age. RIP Until me meet on the other side

I miss you every day as I have for 17yrs years and will continue to.. You are my hero and I love you so much. I hate that you were taken too soon by a senseless drunk driver who had no business driving that day. You were doing the job that you loved.
My comfort is that I will see you again one day. Always know how proud I am of you for following your dream of being an officer.

Always in my heart...

Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventeenth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered for your selfless and distinquished service to our country. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
