I apologize Trooper Van Krevelen. Rest in peace. I mistakenly left a reflection for Officer William C. Cook in your box. Sorry.

Rounds of resolve, resourcefulness and resiliency pierced the very hearts of those citizens concerned with seeking peace and the promises of prosperity here in Dade County. Your thoughtful vision, your undying dignity and composed integrity through honor and reverence led your journeys through periland grief in an effort to restore the optimism and hope to a society calling out for help. heroism and trust of highest character with commitment to excellence always the finest. Rest in peace my neighbor, friend and hero. Saluted and fondly etched in our thoughts.

I find it sad to say that i am just now getting around to seeing this site, and reflecting on a great friend to me for many years. VK and I were running buddies all through high school and junior college and I wont even begin to tell any of the plethora of stories i could tell other than I miss my friend dearly and I still remember that fateful day in 2002 as I returned to Enid and saw OHP vehicles flying by us on the highway. Christopher was a great man, a loyal friend, and a wonderful teammate all through high school and college. I am sure he and my Dad (Danny) have had WAY TOO MANY conversations up there in the clouds about things and probably still laughing at all of us that knew them down here. I hope all is well for Rick, Cindy, and Kelly.

I received a speeding ticket on the way into Enid for Thanksgiving from Trooper Van Krevelen. I thanked him for his service to our community. I told him I went to school with a Jean Ann Van Krevelen. He was incredibly handsome and personable. He is buried closely to my very good friend's daughter. She needed a heart transplant and was only 10. I thank him for watching over Shanika Webster. I will never forget Trooper Van Krevelen.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night, reliving that day Chris had his last call. It still bothers me for you see, I was one of the first on the scene that Thanksgiving afternoon. I was working for LIFE EMS in Enid playing cards with my partner and the other crew when we received a car-v-train call We headed out and were canceled shortly after we left the station. We went back to our card game when we were dispached to a car fire. You don't call an ambulance for a car fire unless it is not good. Upon arrival I pulled the ambulance past the car and began walking back to it. As I reached the car, I heard gunshots and retreated. It was then I saw all these booklets and papers strung out in the grass on the side of the road and on fire. My partner Jamie Moser and I looked to see what they were and discovered they were Oklahoma Driver Training Manuals. We looked at each other and determined this was an OHP car, because you could not tell from the fire. Coming across his ticket book, I looked and discovered it was Trooper Van Krevelen. We both began to frantically look in the car to see if we could do anything, but we couldn't. The car was hanging from the guard rail and I yelled at the EPD officers below to move out from under the overpass as it might fall to the street below. I collected his ticket book and Trooper Hat and sat them in a safe place. Jamie and I felt so helpless.
The rest of the day and evening was spent talking about Chris as we all knew him and enjoyed working a scene with him. He was a fun guy to work with.
I pray every time I see an OHP officer heading to an incident. I don't ever want another officer to not return home to his family at the end of a shift. I know it has been several years since this happened but every once in a while I relive that afternoon in a dream. I hope his family is doing well and wish them a good life.
