It is another sad day in Indiana, on the heals of last weeks deaths in Mishawaka we again are faced with another family that has a terrible loss. These are so senseless and unneeded. Being a Indiana Survivor myself I know what is to come for Scott's family and my heart goes out to them. We as survivors will be here to help you through this.

My heart goes out to your family. You are a hero and and man that gave his all. It saddens me to know that your unborn child will never get a chance to know you and you passion, courage,comapassion and caring. Your wife and partner has been stripped of her best friend by a evil that you swore to keep from hurting others. Thank you for your sacrifice. May those that knew you keep you memory fresh and alive. Rest in peace and may God comfort your family.

I would just like to extend my deepest sympathies to you, as his wife. I know that God is with you in this time. Lean on Him and He will be there for you.
I will be praying for you and for your child. May he/she one day know that his/her daddy was a strong and brave man that died doing what he loved.

God Bless You and Keep You.

THE TROOPERS LAST ROLL CALL ...

THE TROOPERS STOOD AND FACED HIS GOD, WHICH MUST ALWAYS COME TO PASS. HE HOPED HIS SHOES WERE SHINING, JUST AS BRIGHTLY AS HIS BRASS. "STEP FORWARD NOW, TROOPER. HOW SHALL I DEAL WITH YOU? HAVE YOU ALWAYS TURNED THE OTHER CHEEK? TO MY CHURCH HAVE YOU BEEN TRUE?"

THE TROOPER SQUARED his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain’t. Because those of us who carry badges can’t always be a Saint. I’ve had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I’ve been violent because the streets are awfully tough. But I never took a penny that wasn’t mine to keep, though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills just got to steep. And I never passed a cry for help, though times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I’ve wept many unmanly tears. I know I don’t deserve a place among the people here, they never wanted me around except to calm their fear. If you’ve a place for me Lord, it needn’t be so grand. I never expected or had too much, but if you don’t, I’ll understand."


There was silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod. As the Trooper waited quietly, for the judgment of his God. "Step forward now, TROOPER, you’ve borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven’s streets, you’ve done your time in hell."


Rest in peace brother, and may God continue to look over you and your family

Another tragic loss to the Law Enforcement family. To Trooper Patricks wife, family, friends, and the Indiana State Police, please know that we mourn with you, even as we continue to mourn the loss of our brother officer, Ryan Cappellety.
