When my son Brandon was in his accident in January in VT, this was the trooper who stayed with him, and told him he was going to be alright, and he was alive and okay, and stayed at the hospital ER with him and waited for me to get there and explained everything to me. He also called several times the following few days to check on him. He kept telling him he was going to be okay. He also called and reassured me that Brandon was going to be okay and will walk again. I am also stunned by the fact that this young man was from Watertown. I was born In Watertown,and most of my family is from Watertown. This was an angel sent for Brandon and I that day. May you rest in peace! I will never be able to thank you enough for what you did for Brandon, and the kindness and caring you had that night and the days following.
AND YES, Brandon is walking.!!!

I was Kyle's art teacher in elementary school. I always knew him to smiling, enthusiastic and good natured.
As I remember him as a fine young man then, I look at his picture, recognize those eyes and see what a fine young man he became.
Condolances to all his family, friends and associates who cared for him and were proud of him.
God Bless.

To Kyle’s family, close friends and loved ones: I realize no condolence can bring back the one you love. But nothing, NOTHING, can ever take away his memory or the love you have for him. As Kyle’s fellow classmate from the 97th class at the Vermont Police Academy, I extend my greatest condolences and heartfelt prayers. He was loved and appreciated by many. May God bring you comfort.
