Reflections for Liquor Inspector Edward L. Moreno

Liquor Inspector Edward L. Moreno,

Many years ago in Cincinnati, Ohio, a young boy (grandson maybe 3-5 yoa) and his mother, (your daughter) gave me St. Michael's Prayer card and pin, in your memory. Sir, it was with great Honor I carried that in my uniform vest for my whole career. It is also with great Honor that I kept that prayer card and is with my memoirs. I retired in September of 2023. I believe in Angels and Sir, I believe that your family member and I were suppose to meet. It was of great Honor to have met part of your family. I'm so sorry for their loss and grief and want them to know that your memories will always be with them. You served your community well and Thank You for your service.

I'm so sorry I didn't write to you yesterday on your birthday. We were busy getting Mom ready to go meet you. We lost Mom this afternoon. I'm sure you and Abby are happy to see her. We will miss Mom. But I know she is not suffering anymore. She was ready to be with you. Daddy please help Momma adjust. Love you all so very much.

Hi Daddy, we went to honor you at NMSP Memorial in Santa Fe on Tuesday. Louie and I took Momma. Not sure how many more she will be able to attend.
We were joined by Alice, Danielle, Desiree, Carolyn, Noodles, and Angolina.

It was such an emotional day. We were able to see the Garden dedicated to you. It was beautiful. I never knew it was there.

Mom will be staying with Alice and the family till this weekend. Hope she has a great time with Brother's family. I don't think she has been to Santa Fe since Brother passed away. I know it was hard for her.

Daddy, I miss you very much. I try very hard to remember. But I still only have 2 memories.

Love you, Cammy

Daddy it's me again. My heart aches so much today. Today is 47 years that you went to Heaven. The pain gets worse the older I get. All I've even wanted was memories of us. I only have 2. And I keep those 2 in my heart. You will always be my Hero. I love you Daddy.

Daddy, I miss you every day more much more today. I see all these people celebrating with their Dad's today since it's Father's Day. I only wish I could have you here near me. Some many time I wish I could just talk to you. I never ever had that opportunity. I thank God that you and Mom had my Brother. He stepped in and helped raise me. I looked up to him as a daughter would to a father. I'm thankful that you don't Ever have to spend another holiday alone. I hope that you and my Brother are having a great time in Heaven celebrating Father's Day together. I miss both of you so much. I love you both.

hey Compa it is that tragic date. I hate to call it an anniversary but life is cruel. I relive the incident and it is always the same. I was so close but I could of been an hour away. God grant you and your family peace.

I didn’t forget Dad. As awful as it was for us, I cannot imagine how it was for you. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish I could pick up a phone to call you. Ask for your advice. You would be proud of my little guys. I hope that you get a chance to come sit with me in the stands and watch Ayden Ed pitch. He is awesome. Justin is following his big brother and is going to be an amazing ball player. Jace had to sit out last season but hopefully he will be back on the field again. I miss you. I miss you so much. I love you and we are all doing our best to take care of Mom.

Daddy, New Mexico is mourning. A New Mexico State Police officer from Lordsburg, was shot and killed in the line of duty today. An Officer from the Las Cruces Police Department was also shot he is fighting for his life in Las Cruces.
Daddy, can you and Brother please help and show Darian Jarrott his way. Please help him.
Just like you, he was too young to be taken away from his family. Please watch over his family.
We are all saddened about this. It brings back too many memories. (Too close to home, literally and figuratively.
I love you, Cammy

Daddy, Happy Birthday! You are in my thoughts everyday. I thrive on trying to think of memories of you. I can only come up with a few. I wish I had as many memories as my siblings. My favorite memory is sitting in the living room with you, I must have been like 4 years old. You were working. I remember your briefcase on the coffee table. You set the tv also on the coffee table so I could watch Romper Room. I wish I could remember more. I will always hold on to that memory. I miss you so much. I Love You Daddy.

Daddy, in honor of you and our big brother Abby I have been donating law enforcement crosses that I have made. I give them out to law enforcement officers I just happen to run into. It's funny when the police officers come looking for me so they can get a cross. I am making it my mission to hand out these crosses in the months of May and July. May be because of Police Memorial Week and July for both yours and brothers Anniversary in Heaven. Daddy I miss you and Brother so very much. Love both of you with all my heart.
