Trooper Salvatore Embarrato was killed when his patrol car crashed through a guard rail and plunged down an embankment as he turned around to stop a traffic violator.

His patrol car experienced a malfunction, causing it to go out of control and through the guard rail. Although Trooper Embarrato was wearing a seat belt, he was thrown from the vehicle because the seat belt anchors detached from the frame of the car.

Trooper Embarrato had served with the New York State Police for 3 years. He is survived by his parents and two sisters.

Dear Brother...I just called the Nyack florist...and asked if an arrangement could be delivered today...to the Troop T Zone 1 Memorial...since it is...what would have been...your 86th Birthday...on this Feast of the Archangels...Michael...Gabriel... and Raphael.

I meant to call them sooner...and was disappointed...when I was told that they were swamped today...so tomorrow is the earliest...they can accommodate my request.

It’s not that I forgot...I just got sidelined by my recent knee replacement surgery...and didn’t plan accordingly. Please forgive the delay...but with any luck...I will be able to get myself to the noon mass today...that I had scheduled...months ago...to be offered in your memory...on this day.

Well...I guess I don’t have any luck...because I was just told by the doctor’s nurse...that I shouldn’t be driving...until after my first post op...back to see him...on Oct. 12. So...I watched the noon mass...on EWTN...and did my praying for you...in front of the TV.

I guess it was meant to be...because after the mass was over... I continued to watch another program...on a baseball recruiter’s “journey”...which led him to becoming a convert. The subject matter underscored how very important faith is...along with the mass...Eucharist...and prayer. It was reaffirming...to say the least.

Since I was icing my knee...I decided to change the channel... and watch something else. It was a documentary called... Something Is Wrong With Aunt Diane...and told about the horrific accident in July of ’09...that killed 8 people on the Teutonic Pkway. There were scenes of the NYS Thruway...at Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow...the Tappan Zee Bridge...and responses from many NYS Troopers...as they arrived at the scene of the accident. So while it was a very sad account...of a tragic loss to several families...it was for me...a transport back in time...to areas I knew too well...because of your loss to us. So you might say...there was an intentional reason...designed by someone... for me to have to change my plans...and it afforded me the opportunity...to reflect back...and spend "spiritual" time...with you. You know me...and my "there are no coincidences" view...so...

I pray that as you keep watch over...Cookie’s family...as well as mine...that you are also in the company of Mom...Dad...and my son...and that each of you...know the peace of God’s promise to us...as I wish you a very blessed birthday.

Sal...you are not forgotten...you are the best of us...and you are thought about...loved...very missed...and in my prayers... always.
