What a honor it is to know that we have officers like Trooper Gabriel Rich. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for his fellow man. His family are in my prayers and thoughts. May God carry each and everyone through this difficult time. I have been watching the show and when I realized the whos had been killed my heart sank to my feet and i felt sick. Even with watching the show you come to know each and every officer. Even if its not on a personal basis. You still feel a closeness to them. God bless each and every Trooper and their Families.
