Reflections for Police Officer Candace Ripp


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.

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.
