Reflections for Police Officer Candace Ripp
Yesterday we lost another MNPD Officer and it brought back a lot of memories of when we lost you. I have driven down Ellington Parkway a thousand times since that day and have thought about you every single time.

I just noticed it was the 29th of April and then remembered it was your birthday. You left an impression on many that has not faded after all these years, and I am one of those who will never forget you. You will always be my sister in blue.

Happy Birthday, in 7 more minutes it will be your 51st birthday. Seems like it just gets harder and harder instead of better. Love you, my Baby Girl.

Laurel is soooooooooo right, sometimes we turn to each other and say, yep, Candy's right here with us in those girls. Claire's athleticism is like looking at you on the basketball court or softball field all over again. And Truleigh has that ATTITUDE and DETERMINATION that comes straight from you.
Miss you every day but today is tough. Love, Mother

Missing you....I see you in my daughters,when Truleigh gets that "Ripp"look or in Claire's drive and determination. I hate that they don't have you in their lives. I love you sissy!

I was passing this stretch of highway today and wondered who you were. Someone was thoughtful enough to post a memorial sign in your honor. Very Kind. I am sorry the loss your fellow officers, Daughter and Granddaughter had to experience in a life without you. Thank you for your service

I think about that day and wonder why you took that call. I was dispatched, but you took it. I think about you often and miss you. I am sure you would never have believed it but I am married now with 2 wonderful kids.

Not sure if I am related to your family or not. Just conducted a search of my last name and couldn't help writing. First of all, I want to thank you for your service and my heart goes out to your loved ones.

Well, Sissy, you have a new nephew - he came here almost grown at 9 lbs. 10 ozs - Norris Franklin Ripp. What a cutie he is. You would love playing feet to feet with him just like you did with Preston and Joseph.
Miss you, Babe, more than words can say.

I always think of you & your family this time of year. We've all made it though these years by knowing you're in God's loving hands, and are now safe. It was an honor to have been in your academy class; I'm so blessed that we reconnected before you were taken from us. Until next time sister.
