Trooper Mignano recently arrested a very good friend of mine for DUII. While he failed to see the benefits of her actions that night, since his arrest he has sought out treatment for his addiction. Had it not been for Trooper Mignano, my friend would have continued his destructive behavior. He realizes that now and even attended the Memorial Service for Trooper Mignano. He is well aware of how she changed his life for the better.

Rest in peace Trooper Mignano.


You are not forgotten! We will continue to do the job in your honor and in memory of you and all who laid down their lives so that we could live in a civilized society. We are stronger because of you. Rest in peace


My thoughts and prayers are with the families of Officers Mignano and Hoerauf. The northwest community is one that is close-knit and when an officer is fallen, our community mourns. May officers Mignano and Hoerauf walk among the streets of gold alongside our lord.

God bless.


Maria, Your loss to us hurts beyond words. You will be missed but never forgotten.

The words "I am sorry" are not enough to express my condolences. I will be praying for this family as they continue to deal with their loss.

Cathy Hill (Widow of Deputy Barrett Hill
Harris County Sheriff's Department

Thank you Senior Trooper Mignano, for laying down your life for all citizens in your great state. If it weren't for you stopping your vehicle to assist these motorists, they would probably have been killed instantly. People need to think about your sacrifice when they think of troopers, instead of immediately associating them with traffic tickets. God bless you, your family and friends.

Explorer Sgt. Patrick Siemon

To Maria's family both in blue and by blood as well as her friends...Look upon the good she has done and remember that she will always be looking down upon you as G-d's angel of mercy. Also, as long as you keep her close to your heart and think of her in times to come, then she will live eternally.

Aother angel taken......Godspeed.


To the family and friends of Trooper Mignano, our hearts and prayers go out to you all. May God Bless you and confort you always.
