It is with profound sadness that we must report the passing of one of our most beloved volunteers. Laurie Holguin was on tour when she experienced a sudden medical emergency a few nights ago following our performance in Massillon, Ohio.

Laurie's daughter Nicole, (a second year member of the Troopers Colorguard), as well as Laurie's father and husband Christopher were with Laurie at the time of her passing.

Laurie, (who was from Dallas, Texas) was always the first to volunteer whenever possible and was widely known as the kind and energetic mom that would shuttle members and staff to and from airports, help prepare food, and so much more. Her love of the Troopers is matched wholeheartedly by the love we had for her. Laurie was family, and she will be missed beyond words.

The Troopers organization would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of this incredible soul. The long blue line is with you.

With honor and love, The Troopers

It's very difficult for another organization to write something that gives comfort to the members and family of another corps, and that also includes extended family, friends;and neighbors; and most of all to Laurie; her daughter, who rightfully should be facing this season with excitement and joy. Sadly, it was not to be. We all travel our own road of life. Sometimes it seems way too short, and other times prolonged beyond reason. We are strangers on Laurie's road, and though we never met we mourn her loss with the entire Trooper family.  The Cadets' Alumni, myself in particular, extend our hand of friendship and love to someone we never knew, but wish we had. RIP Laurie. Your road has come to an end, but the memory of all the wonderful things you did in your life, will live on through every star in the sky, twinkling in your honor.

Dave Shaw, A Cadet Alumnus with Trooper memories that will never die.
