Dear Ones,

Please accept my hearfelt condolences at this time of unbearable sadness.
There is something so very special about our honorable men in blue; Officers' loved ones know the risks they face each day and what incredible courage and dedication it takes to do the work that keeps us all safe.
As a mother of a young Connecticut State Trooper, I live in fear of his safety and the security of his loving family. I cannot imagine the pain and sorrow you are enduring as a result of this senseless tragedy. If I thought I could help ease your sorrow, or if there was anything I could do for you, I wouldn't hesitate for a minute. Your loved one, Trooper Hall, never hesitated.
We citizens of Connecticut owe you a great deal of gratitude. You have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our safety.
God bless and keep you.

To Sheila Ramsey Hall,
I send my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your brave and wonderful husband. It is heartbreaking for your entire family.
I also send my deepest thanks for his service to our country and to our state. And thank you for sharing him with us.
Sheila, I am wondering if you are the same Sheila who I worked with at Gustave Fischer many years ago. If so, I have never forgotten you.
My hope is that wonderful memories of a wonderful man will carry you through, as well as your large and loving family.

God bless my family when I am away,
Leave the lights on I'll return from harms way,

Grant me courage and strength to protect others each day,
So they live in peace without worry, fear or dismay,

Bless those who have fallen given their life for another
May their spirit live on from then and forever,

Return me home to my family at the end of each night,
May I pass through the door before the morning's first light,

Shall I give my life for another before the dawn breaks today,
God bless my family when I am away.

With sincere gratitude,

I went to high school with Kenny Hall. We played on the same sophomore football team. Our high school had so many students we had split sessions. So we went to school from noon to 5:00 and practiced in the morning. During practice we would go back to the huddle and in almost every huddle Kenny would pull my socks down. For such a "tough" guy, boxer and all, he had a great sense of humor. If I was ever in a tough spot I would want Kenny on my team. My thoughts and prayers to Kenny's family. Sorry for your loss of such a gentleman!

To the family of Trooper Hall:

I knew Trooper Hall through of friend of a friend but it saddens me and I feel a pain in my heart as if I knew him personally. Formally being in law enforcement the comradery among all law enforcement is very strong this is why I cry with sadness but I knew there's another assignment for him in the Kingdom to server the higher being. May your family have comfort during your time of sorrow.

Peace & Grace
