Tomorrow I will be making making my journey to Mt. Hope Cemetery for my son, Detective Sean Carrington. With each step I take to the cemetery memories flood my mind. The best memories was his laughter & his smile. That smile that put much joy in my heart & making me proud that he was my son... RIP!!!

Excerpt from Niya's Sweet 16 Birthday party...This last candle is dedicated to my father. I lost you at the age of 18 months and now its been 14 yrs with you gone. They say it hurts less to lose someone you hardly have memories with but in all honesty it hurts more to think about memories you never had. you are both mine and our family hero. You are loved by so many and forgotten by none.. Everyday I think about you and everyday I know your watching over me - even though I was too young to speak you never heard me say I love you dad but just know one day I´┐Żll be face to face with you again to finally say the words I always wanted to tell you. I love you daddy. I am just truly blessed, proud and honored to say I am the daughter of Detective Sean G. Carrington a hero who will never be forgotten .I love you dad. So can I have my grandma Jackye and my mom come up to help me light this candle.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.. I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you for I know the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today.

Sean I cannot believe it is 14 years... time is supposed to fly when you're having fun, not missing someone :( I think of you often, and when I do... I reach out to mom... I am always checking on her and Niya. You would be so proud of her, she is growing up to be such a beautiful young lady...

Wishing you were still here..Love you lots!!
Rest in Peace

This is the mother of Det. James Zadroga we met your mom & daughter in Villa Roma they are beautiful people. You should be very proud of your daughter she is so polite and a really beautiful girl. I love your mother she is one great person and I could only image what you must have been like. You have such a wonderful family. Your mother is full of life but like me deep down we are hurting, we put on a good show. I'm sure your looking down on your family just as my son is. Sean I hope you meet my son up there. Rest in peace

As an expectant mother in 1998 I was sadden by the news of detective Carrington's death. I have thought about his daughter and her mother for the past 13 years. I remember vividly as if it was yesterday when I watched the news and heard how he gave his life trying to make our streets safer for his child as well as mine. I have kept his family in my prayers all these years, I cannot begin to imagine what you have gone thru but know that you are not alone. I will continue to pray for you, every day I looked at my son I remember officer Carrington because of his sacrifice so my son can grow up in a drug free environment. I know it may sound strange I don't know you but I love you God Bless.

Sean was a jokester...He had a smile that made you feel better. Remember when Sean would start laughing and he would mess up the words in his conversation? Remember how Sean loved to dance? Remember Seans blue car? Remember Sean's mom Jackie letting him have it. Remember playing ball in John Jay....Spades....Remember when we all got together and just talk a bunch of mess.... Sean was a God Send...He never left you stranded...Always had your back...Sean is laughing now...To the Bronx Crew!!! John Jay Crew!!!! ICE BOBBY TOMMY GLEN PEANUT BUTTER and JELLY MANCHAND STEVE FREEDOM TEON MIKE KAL DEE WORM CRAIG WILL BLACK RED ALERT RAYMOND BEN KARIEM....I remember talking to Sean one night...He was feeling bad about a argument he had earlier.....He picked me up and we went to Baychester Diner....We was there for about five hours...Sean told me that I shoud be a counseler (back in 1989)...Guess what I am a minister and loving every minute of it.

11 years and yet it still feels like it just happened...
You touched so many people in so many good ways - words can not express how much you are truly missed. They say that the friends you make in college are the friends you'll have for a lifetime. Our time (at John Jay and thereafter) was too short! I miss our conversations that always turned into a debate that always ended with one of us quoting your Moms "don't get cute, 'cause we can roll up in here, my man!"

You are a true hero. The Finest of the Finest. You gave your all fighting the evils of drugs in this City. You will always be remembered. May God watch over you and your family.

Just wanted to stop by on this MLK Holiday and let you know that I often have you in my thoughts. 11 years ago today, on this very Holiday, you were taken from us. Time heals the pain of our loss, but you will always be remembered in our hearts. I have SO many vivid memories of times we shared. The six Long months in the academy. Sitting in traffic coming back from the Jones beach Greekfest. You stopping by BBQ's for the Saturday comedy night. And last but not least, you missing every three pointer you took at Spellman High School on thursday nights. And I still kept passing you the ball. I could go on and on. I miss you my brother, and you will Never be Forgotten. I just let my daughter Mya read some reflections that have been left for you. She's only 9 and wasn't around when you were taken from us, but I wanted her to see how much you were loved.
Continue to watch over us. Until we meet again.

I said a little prayer today for Detective Carrington and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

Detective Carrington, you are remembered on this day and always. My prayers go out to your family with special thought for your daughter, who would be about 12 now. I know what it's like to be a daddy's girl without a daddy. Though you're not physically with her, I pray that she's surrounded by memories of you and that she feels like she knows you even though she was only 2 when you died.

Hey Sean, just writing to let you know that you have not been forgotten. Rest in peace

Detective Carrington,

I was in the BWI airport on 7 June 2008. I was returning to Austin Texas. As I waited for my plane a guy sat across from me and he had on a shirt with your name on it. I don't know if he knew you or just came across the shirt. But as I sat there I said to myself "Ten years". It seems like a long time, but I know that to your family it is a slow slow journey. I did not say anything to this guy, as my mind was racing back to 2004 when I woke up with a 2 year old son to raise. I just wanted you and your loved ones to know that ten years later a complete stranger saw you name and knew were to go to find you.
