I wanted to let the Caprio and Sorrell Families know that I continue to think of you all and Amy often. I go to Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens every week to visit my parents and on my way out, I always stop by where Amy is and say a prayer.
Take Care

Remembering you Officer Caprio...no amount of time will ever erase the sacrifice you had to give...now someone has lost a life as he knew it as a result of ending yours...but that does not bring you back to your family, friends, and fellow officers that were left behind to grieve in your loss.
I only know that the bravest go forward without thought of their own life to save others pain and suffering. I know your soul is in the right place Amy...you are missed and will never be forgotten.

I still think of this beautiful officer who gave her life to protect the citizens of Perry Hall. Thank you officer Caprio and RIP. I wrote this poem the day after you died. While I did not know you....you will always be remembered.

Officer Amy Caprio answered one last call,
A suspicious car was spotted in Perry Hall,
She arrived at the scene and confronted the driver,
Who did not live here and was an outsider,
The driver ran her down without a thought,
Soon he would be one of four, who were sought,
Yes, they found the boys, who ended her life,
But behind was left a community in strife,
No one really slept well that night,
Knowing that a beautiful soul went into the light,
A daughter, a friend, an officer and wife,
She made the ultimate sacrifice, she gave her life,
Trying to make the world a better place,
We will always remember her beautiful face,
Amy gave her life doing what she loved the best,
May she know she was loved by all as she is laid to rest…
and may her family be forever blessed,

Thank you for your service Officer Amy Caprio!

To the Caprio family,

Events from this past week serve as a very stark reminder of the tremendous sacrifice Officer Caprio, and you, have made to the citizens of Maryland.

There are no words to adequately express our sincere condolences, and gratitude, to her, and you, for this life altering experience.

I greatly appreciate the DIGNITY Tribute notice sent to me and I'm sure countless people on the email listing are too...

We ALL need to be reminded of her, her sacrifice, and that of her family, fellow officers, and friends left behind.

To everyone whom may be reading these comments, if you haven't seen the Dignity Tribute, I sincerely suggest you take a few minutes and look at the memory tribute to Officer Caprio...

I am grateful that as a member of the Associated Italian American Charities of Maryland, Inc., (AIAC) and my fellow members, that we had the opportunity to provide a scholarship, in Officer Caprio's name, to Towson University at our awards banquet last December.

It was extremely humbling to participate in the ceremony when the AIAC presented the Officer Amy Caprio Scholarship to her family, several of her fellow officers, and friends, whom attended and observed the very emotional presentation...

My guests from the ODYSSEY SCHOOL, whom have attended many fund raising events,including their own, were extremely moved to have been present during the presentation to Officer Caprio's family, fellow officers, and friends, said that they had never attended such a warm, heartfelt , emotional, and generous charity event.

The entire community should, and needs, to keep Officer Caprio, her family, fellow Officers, and friends, in our hearts and minds...

The Tribute video will patently remind us all of why we should...

God Bless you Officer Amy Caprio...
