13-year-old son of slain NYPD officer mourns father on Facebook In a pair of a heart-wrenching Facebook posts, the son of one of the two NYPD officers killed in Saturday's apparent ambush paid tribute to his slain father. "This is the worst day of my life," Jaden Ramos, the 13-year-old son of Rafael Ramos, wrote. "Today I had to say bye to my father," Jaden continued. "He was their [sic] for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It's horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad." Jaden's Facebook posts have been shared more than 8,000 times. Prayers that the loving hand of God shall be on Jaden and his family as they have to deal with burying a father and a husband and to Officer Liu's widow Pei Xia Chen. I pray that Christmas is not forever associated with this tragedy for them.
