Trooper Skalman has been a part of my mindset for as long as I can remember. Mama always reminded us kids to "kiss Daddy good-by" when he signed on for his shift - we always knew, in the far reaches of our minds it was a possibility he would not come home, never really thinking such a thing could happen to us. But life throws us curve balls and the connection is there whether or not we've met. I remember your Dad. Deborah Ziesmer Nied - daughter of Trooper Don Ziesmer
