Trooper Carey, today we mark the 35th anniversary of your untimely and tragic departure. As always, you will never be forgotten nor will your family, and I hope and pray that many of my colleagues and friends take a minute today for reflection for a great Trooper, whose picture we see everyday on the wall for making the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you and until we meet again.

I graduated with Trooper Carey's son, who was a great guy, from high school back in 1988. From what I have heard of about Trooper Carey and being friends with his son through high school and college, the saying "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" could not be more true. Trooper Carey left a wonderful family behind serving the people of Delaware and he will always be remembered by his brother and sister Trooper's in Delaware! I salute you sir!!

Ron was a great role model to all, especially to the commuinty at large. I think of him and Trp. Dave Yarrington often with great admiration. DSP is a full service State Police, so these troopers were often involved with community policing and fighting crime in Delaware communities. The last time I saw Troopers Yarrington and Carey was at troop 1, on Thanksgiving weekend 1971.
They were good troopers and great Christians.

A grateful citizen.

THE POLICEMAN'S LAST ROLL CALL ...

THE POLICEMAN 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, POLICEMAN. HOW SHALL I DEAL WITH YOU? HAVE YOU ALWAYS TURNED THE OTHER
CHEEK? TO MY CHURCH HAVE YOU BEEN TRUE?"

THE POLICEMAN 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 policeman waited quietly, for the judgement of his God. "Step forward
now, policeman, you've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven's
streets, you've done your time in hell."
