Sergeant Aponte, it has been 15 years since you were taken from us. Northern New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your law enforcement service.

And still… I cry just wishing I can talk to you. Wishing I can ask for your help in my times of need. Wishing you can be here so I can have a relationship with my younger brothers. Wishing you can spoil your grandkids. Love you & miss you something fierce.

Grandma is there with you now. Rock the heavens with her.

Life continues without you and as I reach goals and attain achievements, I yearn for you to be there celebrating as loudly as you always have! I believe you are watching over me, and there have been moments where I just knew you were right beside me providing a bumper of safety, but it's just not the same. Wish you were here! I love you and miss you always.

Hi Daddy!
Reflections! Memories! Wish I can trade them in for moments, traditions... I still find myself waking up and having to deal with the realization that you really aren't going to call me. That you really aren't going to meet your new granddaughter. That you really won't come visit us at my very own home. That you really aren't here to witness all the hard work you put into being the best Dad you could be, be put into play. I'm doing my best to atleast allow you to be at peace as I raise my family in this crazy world.
Miss you always and forever,
Loves and kisses to heaven

I reflect, I remember....but i dont want to! I i need you here! Life is unfair in so many ways, understood, but to take away a huge chunk of my life was devastating. It doesnt get easier, ive just become numb. I know your looking down on me, enjoying the ride im taking through life. My successes are big thanks to you. You see ive followed your heart, and ive found comfort in it. Miss you always. Love you still. I will always be your little girl :)

Ok Scott I talk to you in my mind and when i go to church but I think I mostly I try not to actually believe or think that you really are gone forever. I know in my heart that if we had more time Our family would have come full circle. I also know that when push comes to shove we all would stand united for one another no matter what faults we all have. We all had our share of pain and hurting one another mostly over stupid things but we all knew tat we could count on each other no matter what, I wish I could go back in time and change or at least try to change some of the things that were said or not said and done and things not done but I know that I can't. I know when I pray to God and talk to you that you do hear me. Today Denise said that you would have acted just as I did today with a situation I had with Marcia and we laughed and I said that we were alike in some way. I do Miss you and love you and hope that you are truly at peace. Until I see you again. Love Brenda xoxoxo
