Reflections for Officer Ralph W. Miller

I was a 12 year old kid from Manchester when Officer Miller was murdered. This type of thing didn't happen in our quite little city. It's amazing to look back now, as a 42 year old man with kids of my own and realize the senseless loss of life. Officer Miller was a "kid" himself who was simply serving a community. May God continue to watch over and bless him and his family.

Officer Miller, today marks the 30th anniversary of your murder, from what Patrolman Gallant said, this was either a bad kid or a very troubled kid. Either way, what happened to you should never have happened. You are remembered and mourned by your extended family.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

I remember Ralph well, and moreover and sadly remember the day we lost this fine young officer. He was a fine police officer, a friend, and a great colleague. Two days earlier I arrrested the young man who would murder Ralph, at McDonald's Restaurant, South Willow Street, in Manchester, at the age of 17, drunk, disorderly, and resisting arrest. May we remember Ralph, the officer that was with him, Pat Doherty, when Ralph was killed, and may we remember the innocence we left long behind us, many years ago. Most respectfully with un-ending condolences....
