    This is terrible; another officer left behind an expectant mother. Prayers to the family. R.I.P.

    RIP

    Prayers are with the family and the other troopers.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
