Reflections for Trooper Robert Wayne Ambrose

Richie O'Brien, your coworker and room mate died on 12-07-2009. At the mass his mother had said for him on the first anniversary of his death the priest's cermon he was marking the "feast of St. Ambrose" It brought me great comfort, and I don't believe it can be a coincidence that the day God chose to take Richie from us was on that day. I figured that must have made you him FTO in heaven. You guys save some beer for me, and I'll see you both whenever God sees fit to arrange the trip.

Mountain Man; This is getting to be too many times a reason to post on your page. Holy Rood Cemetary is truly the resting place for the finest Heroes. The funeral for Micheal Califano was beautiful and proper, exactly like yours. I posted in February 09 for Glen Ciano. Now for fellow NCPD. 3 names, 3 heroes, 3 fatal MVA's too many... Keep God on his toes up there BigGuy and show Mike a good time. I know it doesn't get any easier for your family so I said extra prayers for them yesterday.

Rob - Each time I visit this page, I try to leave a message, but find it difficult....I still do. Even to this day it seems untrue - I want to believe that you are still here. Over the years, I've slowly and unwillingly come to grips with the fact that you are really gone. I find it amazing how time does no let us forget - my life moved on, but my heart did not. The memories and thoughs are as vivid as if our time together was only yesteday. I think about you all the time. You tragic death has taught me to enjoy every day as if it were my last, to see beauty in little things and love with no boundaries. I wish with every ounce of my being that somethng was learned by your loss and you could be here today with your family. I am so sorry for what happened - that's all I keep saying in my head - I'm sorry. I will never forget you- I carry your picture in my wallet every day - it is all I can do to honor my friend and, at one time, my companion. I miss you Rob.

Eight years today! We miss you so much Bobby. Your favorite holiday is almost here. It's not the same without you. We celebrate Christmas for Paul and Christina and Samantha (Paul's little girl). You would love her. Paul and Brittany are expecting another baby in late May. We wish you were still with us. Not a day goes by without us remembering you. We love you Bobby and we always will. You will live in our hearts forever! xxxoooxxx

Love always...MOM AND DAD <3

When came to the ODMP site tonight, your photograph was in the honored section so I thought I would stop at your page and leave a reflection. I know that not a day has passed since you were called away that you have not been thought of by those that love you dearly and carry your precious memories in their hearts. You will never be forgotten. I would like to leave the following for your Mom for I know her daily struggle as a bereaved parent as I walk in her shoes.

"The sense of loss does not diminish with time. In truth, the expression 'time heals all wounds' is a myth. For parents, the loss of a child is permanent and mental scar tissue really does not grow over the grim memory. Rather, all tears are expended and a dull ache remains."

Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones and close friends.

Hi Rob...We had a WCSU reunion last Saturday. It was a beautiful day. Did you send that to us? Don and I think of you every day. I keep your picture on my mirror to remind me of how precious life is. It was too bad that time got ahold of us before we were able to see you before you were taken from us all. I can only hope that God thought you were so special that he needed you for a higher purpose. Just wish we could have told you how special you were to us and everyone whose lives you touched. Love you always!!!

Hey there...It's been awhile, I know. I think of you often, and still miss you. Your name came up the other day in a conversation with my family, about how Chris was so hurt when you left. He's 19 now and I can't help thinking what the two of you would be doing if you were still here. I love you so much, my best friend, my rock, my everything....I know you are still with me, I feel you all the time...I still watch that video of us, just to hear your voice, give my uncle a hug for me...xoxooxox

It's been 7 years today and we miss you more and more each day. Christmas was your favorite time of year. It's not the same without you. There will always be something missing from our lives. I have a hole in my heart that will never heal. We miss you so much. Please continue to look after your brother and sister. They were lost without you when this happened. We all were. Merry Christmas in Heaven.

Love you....
