  3. I will be praying for the family over their loss. Trooper Thrasher was a name I heard growing up and had the occasion to meet him a few times. He is was one of many influences that inspired me to become a police officer. I appreciate his service to the citizens of Kentucky.

  4. I has the pleasure of working with Kent in the KSP. He was one you could always count on to do the right thing and to try to be the first one there if you needed help with anyone or anything.

    He was my buddy and was a great friend and man!
