Trooper Van Antwerp, you were the officer on the scene at my Grandfather's auto accident during a rainstorm in Sharon Springs in September of 1931. Tragically,he was killed instantly at the age of 34. What a tragedy to see that you lost your life very young, as well. May you rest in peace. Thank you for everything you did that night to assist those who lived.

A grateful relative
