Reflections for Trooper Robert Wayne Ambrose

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY TODAY, I KNOW YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN OUT RIDING....ENJOYING THE SUN...(WE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU HATED THE COLD) AND BELIEVE ME..I'D BE RIGHT BEHIND YOU HOLDING TIGHT ... IF YOU PROMISED TO BE GOOD...WE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVED TO RIDE , AND JUST KNOW THAT YOU WERE A PERFECT " STUDD MUFFIN'" ON THAT BIKE...IT WAS ALMOST AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU...LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR NEXT RIDE...SOON.

LOVE YOU.....BREN

The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have
consecrated it, above our poor power to add or detract. The
world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,
but it can never forget what they did here. Abraham Lincoln
1863
Words can not express the feelings to the family, friends,
and colleagues of this tragic loss.

ROB..
YOUR SMILE WAS BEAUTIFUL, YOUR EYES WERE A REFLECTION OF THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART...YOU WOULD MAKE US LAUGH...YOU WOULD MAKE A DARK MOMENT INTO A RAINBOW..YOU ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT LIFE WAS SOMETHING TO MAKE SOMETHING OF..YOU LIVED A GREAT LIFE..ALTHOUGH IT WAS CUT SHORT. ANYONE WHO HAS EVER CAME IN CONTACT WITH YOU HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY YOU LEAVING US....IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE MET YOU AND NOT FEEL A LOSS. ROBERT AMBORSE...A SWEETHEART...A LOYAL FRIEND...A TRUE PERSON...THIS IS SO SAD...THIS SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPEND...WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE LOVE AND KEEP IT IN OUR HEARTS AND YOU WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE ON IN EVERY ONES HEARTS...FOREVER...

Hey you..
You must know how blessed I feel to have had you in my life these past 2 years and I wanted to thank you for always believing in me..always showing me the way ...I remember when we first met you said that you saw so much in me, that I would shine in this world like I did in your eyes....You were my best friend, my everything...you always said we had a "Connection" I know we did too. You were my "Rock" you would laugh when I said this and say that you were brought to me be for a reason...you believed this....Our journy isn't over baby.. I wish you were still here so I can tell you all the good news!!! You were always the first to tell...I'm doing everything you believed I could do...I know you'd be proud.!!! ..I WILL LOVE YOU ALWAYS....I promised this and I meant it!! R&b FOREVER....IN MY HEART

Robert, your death is so senseless and tragic and I know words are not enough to console those of us grieving for you.
May God bless you and your family now and forever.

A brief moment of darkness
was all that I knew,
before Heaven's Gate
came into my view.

Loved ones and friends
I had missed for many years,
welcomed me with open arms
and many happy tears.

All the hurt, fear and pain
that I have ever known,
is gone from my life,
I am finally home.

I gazed upon the Lord's
sweet smiling face,
and for the first time in my life
I knew and felt His grace.

I know that you miss me,
but please dry your eyes.
I will always be watching and loving you
from my home in the sky.

A cool breeze on your face,
a touch of light rain,
I will send as a reminder
that we will be reunited again.

Life on earth is but one
brief moment in time,
I am finally home,
Eternity is mine.

I look out the window where I work and remember how you would sit outside in you police car waiting for me so we could go to lunch....I remember your smiles when I walked outside...and all the huge hugs. I remember when I first put Kody in your arms while you were blind folded, and HOW YOU LIT UP WHEN YOU SAW HIM....My way of thanking you for all you've done for me. I hope you really knew how loved you were and still are. You had such a strive for life...YOUR SMILE LIT UP MY LIFE...EVERYDAY.!!! And this is for Jaime...she adored you!!!...she thinks you are now with her fish taking good care of it, but she misses you...we look at pictures and watch our tapes, and you stilll make her laugh!!! You said she reminds you of when your sister was growing up...your sister was so lucky to have a brother like you....I want you to know that there will never go a day when you're not on my mind or in my heart....FOREVER BABY...UNTIL WE SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN. I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Forever and always,
Bren(honey bunny)

I decided to leave another "reflection" because over the last 4 weeks that you have been gone... I have been doing my our "reflections"...

I miss you more than I can express...and I still admit I will never say good bye. You promised me a life full of love, laughter, smiles and Milano cookies all to myself =) and you know what? I think you will still be able to give me that life... only from a different place now. You will always be a part of my life... and although I know I have to live my life here without you (physically)... I know you always be watching over me... taking care of me...as my angel =)

I am hurting...but can't help to feel SO lucky to have been able to share my life and love with you...if even for a little while. I wouldn't trade it for the world. (Thank you for sharing your life and love with me...)

Love Always,

Rob,
Its hard to believe your gone. Even though its been almost a month it is still hard to grasp. I'm going to miss talking to you and seeing that smile. You were a good man with a heart of gold, and I'm truly going to miss you. Sleep well sweetie.
Always on my mind, forever in my heart.

Bobby, you truly are my hero. Every time you would come home, I would light up when I saw your smiling face and heard you say "Hey Kitten!!" and then you'd give me a huge hug and kiss. I loved our talks and how you would ask me, a 17 year old with not much experience, for advice and what I thought about different situations you were going through. Although you're not here anymore physically, I know you are with me in spirit and the love I have always felt for you will never die. You'll always be my big brother and I will miss you more than words can say. I still can't believe you are gone and that I won't hear you're laugh anymore....if I knew that that sunday was the last day I would ever see you...I would have told you what an amazing brother you are and how proud I am of all you have achieved. You'll always be our big teddy bear and I could not be more proud to be an AMBROSE. My brother, my best friend, and now my guardian angel...I love you and I can't wait to wrap my arms around you when we meet again in heaven.
xoxoxoxoxo Love always,

I will always remember the 1st time you told me you loved me.. and the last.. not more than a hour before..........

You taught me what it feels like to truly be in love and how it feels to receive it. I will never understand why God brought us together.. only to break us apart.

You may not be in arm's reach... or within my sight distance.. but you will never be far from my heart.

You left with a piece of me... and I will never say good bye... only "Until we meet again".

I love you... and will cherish the memories that we have made... and look forward to that day.. when you can say "What took you so long"............

Until that day.... Always in my heart
