Most Recent Reflection

I am so overwhelmed and grateful for these reflections that have been shared. Just last week I came across the newspapers of my fathers passing and the few pieces of memorabilia I have from childhood. Being that I was raised more in AZ than NY I am so appreciative for your memories of who he was in your lives. Just this past September 2013, I visited Troop K. I have forgotten that so much time had passed and the officer that took us to the memorial they have for my Dad was the one with the longest time in the department.. Over twenty years.. Had never met him but heard about him constantly when he first became a trooper. Please, Please continue to share or send me stories to share with my brother Todd. [email protected]
Blessings to all.. Thea “Amy” Dunning ~ Bobbys proud daughter!
