Today and everyday my family remembers and never forgets Trooper Kimberly Boltz Hurd. She was a daughter, sister, granddaughter, wife, cousin, friend and fellow Trooper. Kim impacted many lives and 31 years later when we meet fellow officers we still hear stories and love hearing them. Today we honor Kim and all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
