Reflections for Sergeant Terrence Felipe Carraway

I was straight out of the U. S. A. F. when I first met T.C. He loved what we did even lived it. We saved our first of many lives entering a burning house for an elderly woman who said her baby was inside. I protested ( to myself) knowing fully well were going in as he began braking windows for the super thick smoke. We found her baby on the bed pulled him to the floor and dragged him out. Turns out her baby was her 70 years old friend. We both laughed at each other and went back in service. I used to tell him afterwards that life comes atcha fast so you gotta be able to hit the curve ball and he would laugh and say that if I can’t hit it I’m gonna go down swinging. That’s T. C.

"Sergeant Carraway, along with three other Florence police officers, responded to the scene and were attempting to rescue the three wounded deputies when the subject opened fire on them too, shooting all four."
What greater testimony to character can there be found than in that sentence? Where do we get such people? While on so many levels it is heart breaking, equally on another level, how can one's chest not but swell with pride at having people like this in our the privilege of serving in the company of people like this? GOD BLESS THEM!

It is with great pride in our profession and humility in learning how he served the citizens Florence that I bicycle in memory of Sergeant Carraway this weekend. The Pennsylvania Division of Law Enforcement United leaves Reading PA Friday to bicycle to Washington DC for Police week. On this ride every mile I pedal will be to honor Sergeant Carraway’s service.

In researching Sergeant Carraway and his tragic death while courageously attempting to save others, I was humbled to see a man who walked the line for 30 plus years put others before himself and put himself in harm’s way to rescue those who had been injured.

Sergeant Carraway and Investigator Turner will never be forgotten.

Riding to honor those who gave all and support those they left behind.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

A. Lincoln
