Reflections for Trooper Harold Anderson

Trooper Anderson,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army Air Service in Europe during World War I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Thank you all for honoring the memory of dear Cprl Harold Edmund Anderson, my cousin and my grandmother's first cousin. They were all born in Big Rapids, Michigan, immigrants (1870) from Gotland Sweden in the Baltic sea. They were an industrious settlement of Swedish workers contracted to work on the building of the Railroad, but carrying with them the fine skills of the carpenter and furniture maker. The Swedes of Fourth Avenue. Harold had already survived 18 months in France during WW I and immediately became a State Trooper to further his sense of service. He died so young. His two brothers continued that sense of service as pilots in the military and later flight instructors. His youngest brother rose to Colonel . We honor all the dedication of our Troopers and those who have fallen in their sense of duty. Rest in peace, dear Harold. You are still alive in our hearts.

Fell in 21, the role of unknown fallen hero's had begun, though many more will follow, and some of us might fall, the right to safely live in freedom matters most of all.

Rest in peace, Sir! You are not forgotten.

I cruised the freeways, far and near,
and patrolled the highways long.
I assisted those in need of help,
and tried to right the wrongs.

I knew my job put me at risk,
thus faith came into call;
I never drove without the Lord.
He was with me through it all.

I didn't want to leave you,
but God said that I must go.
So, I held your love inside me,
and let my spirit flow.

Tell my family, and my friends,
that everything's okay;
Up here a Trooper uses wings,
to cruise the Great Highway.

Teach my children to be proud, (MSP)
and to not live life in fear.
Tell them Daddy's still on watch,
and that I am always near.

And you, dear wife, remember, please
that true love never dies.
What lives today, within the heart,
lives on in Paradise.
