Reflections for Trooper First Class Blake T. Coble

I had the honor of carrying TFC. Coble to his final rest, a memory that I will never forget. I retired from the PSP over 6 years ago and just by chance came upon Blake's page today while serving at a new department where I began to serve again in 2022. I wanted to let his family know we do not forget his sacrifice, and I honor his memory today. May our Lord find his family well and at peace. Blessings to you today.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.
