My deepest thoughts and prayers are with Trooper Snow's wife, children, family, friends and co-workers. I was married to Alabama State Trooper Brian Nichols EOW 2/17/2002 and I am now married to Washington County Deputy Sheriff Aaron Carpenter. All of your C.O.P.S. family is here for you and hurting for you. We all became a family when our loved ones became police officers and now we have even a stronger bond when one of our family members goes down. We are here for you to help you along this journey you now have joined with us. God bless you all.

On behalf of the NYSP Survivor's group, we extend our sincerest sympathy to the family, friends, and co-workers at the Canton State Police Barricks, Troop B.
For the past 14th years, we, as family members of those who have died in the line-of-duty, come together each fall to assist new families with their worst nightmare. Those of us who have attend Survivor's Weekend, now reach out to those whose hearts who are shattered and let them know they are not alone in their grief.
It has been a very difficult year for our Troopers, but we have each other now and it makes news like this just a little more bearable for each and every one of us.
Trooper Shawn Snow, you are now surrounded by our loved ones in heaven, and we will walk with your family and friends until you meet again.

NYSP Family Members from "Survivor's Weekend"


Our loved one’s memory is but God’s whisper
Remembering stories of love untold,
Memories are a wonderment that surrounds us
We store inside yet at a moment can unfold.
As silhouettes of many Angels
Gracefully fall from the clouds so high
They bring wonderful memories as if bottled,
One by one opened, to be by a loved one’s side.
You’ll need someone beside you
We will take your hand, fragile one,
We will leave the gray clouds behind us
And reach up to touch the warm sun.
See the rainbows of light in the sky
As they gently stream down from above?
Look and see your loved one there
They’re touched by your undying love.
From your tears of hurt inside you
That now stream from your tired eyes,
They are tears, they’ll help heal you
A reminder he’s always close by your side.
As the pain builds inside your heart
Let those tears heal you on your way,
You will see a brighter tomorrow
A little less painful than yesterday.
Day by day, there, now, new one
Love will hold you oh so tight,
No energy left dearest lonely one
You have only begun your fight.
Like a trampled lonely leaf of autumn
Left on the cold, cold ground,
Be sure it’s God’s intention
For a new tree that leaf has found.
We will climb to the top of the branches
To see the billowing clouds there part,
This is where we can let go and fall
The wind beneath will lift up your heart.
Look beyond today our friend
A promise of love we'll provide,
We will all help to guide you, you’re not alone
The Survivors will be there, always, by your side.
