The recent killing of one Pa State Trooper and serious wounding of another brings me back many times to that January morning when the call came from FHP Trooper Fred S. informing my mom that her brother, Trooper Sherman Lee Scott Jr. ended his watch at the hands of a killer in Northern Florida. Knowing how my uncle 'Lee' lived made it a little easier to handle because I knew as he passed on the roadside that he was being guided to everlasting peace in the hands of the Lord. I was, and am still VERY PROUD of Lee's service, which he performed until his last earthly breath.
