Trooper Champy, you joined my dad in Heaven just shortly after my passed. I have such fond memories of you meeting with dad at our house on your breaks and having coffee. You and he had a great relationship as peace officers. I remember how you would talk of your family and your girls...You were taken away from them and all of us too soon. I know you are looking upon them and keeping them safe, as is my father.
