Coincidence? Hand of God? One of my parents' oldest and dearest friends was NJ State Trooper Teddy Moos. He died in the line of duty in 1987. Last week, Casey stayed at the State Trooper training barracks as a Trooper Youth Class 105. Over the weekend, my mom, her brother and Casey were talking about Casey's experience at the Youth Camp when the names of troopers they knew came up. One was Teddy. Casey asked how his name was spelled. It turns out that in the barracks where he stayed, there were plaques honoring 3 fallen Troopers. One was Teddy Moos. One of my dad's dearest friends was literally watching over our son every night.
