Dear Amy (and Family),
Although we never met, I feel compelled to reach out and speak to how saddened I have been since your passing. My heart is broken because you were not only there to protect us and serve us, but you are "US".

Being a woman only a few years older, living in the same area that you grew up in, working in the same areas that you worked in, makes it feel so personal. I am a home health RN, and it makes me feel safe and comforted to know and see there is a police presence around. Within our community, I go into the unknown every time I meet a new patient, which is several times a week. The work you did is paramount to the men and women in my field of nursing.

Our community, and all of the nurses that I associate with at my company all feel a tremendous loss and I wanted to let your family know how grateful we all are. For the officers like you out there on the street looking out for us. We depend on you and your fellow officers to keep us safe, and you gave your life for that. Since last Monday, I cannot even think or speak about what has happened without becoming tearful. Thank you for your service Mrs. Amy Caprio. I will never forget you.

Ode to Amy

Amy I never met you, but yet I knew you well,
the uniform and badge you wore, your story they did tell,
With courage and conviction, you went out every day,
to make the world a safer place, for us to work and play,
So many came to say goodbye, so many tears were shed,
your life was taken way too soon, but what a life you led,
Somewhere in this crowd today, someone's inspired by you,
and someday they will wear a badge, on a uniform of blue.

Rest in peace Officer Amy Sorrells Caprio

I don’t even know where to begin. I didn’t even know you, and I’ve cried every day for a week. Thank you for being a hero, and for keeping us safe. My prayers are with your spouse, family, friends and co-workers. These are the people who were fortunate enough to know you, and I give them credit for being able to just function right now.

I grew up in Hillendale, Parkville and Perry Hall, so this hits very close to home for me. My wife, kids and I have lived in Parkville for the past 12+ years, and I pass the Parkville police station nearly every day on my way home. I see the memorials by the sign, and it’s heartbreaking. I'm sure our cars passed at some point. My son shares your birthday and turned 13 on the day you would have turned 30. My daughter is the athlete, playing soccer (primarily in the goal) and lacrosse (for Parkville). You are the BEST role model for them. I really can’t thank you enough.

I’m so sorry. I don’t think there are words that accurately convey what most people are thinking and feeling right now. You will never be forgotten.

Small in stature, large in courage. A guardian of people here on Earth where all is temporary - you made a difference. You touched our lives and for this you will forever be carried in memories and in the hearts of those who loved you. No one ever knows when their time here is done, God puts us here for a reason and calls us home when our mission is complete. We will never understand it but in the brief time we got to know about your life you became important to us and it hurt to let you go. Trust God needed you Home with Him now and your reunion with family and friends left behind now will be joyous and forever with no more pain or separation.

Thank you for your service and the sacrifice of a truly wonderful life. You left this short life doing what you loved and making a difference in the lives of your family & community. You are loved still and will forever be remembered fondly...something all of us would like to be.

Rest easy Amy, your fellow officers have the watch and God is now laying before you the next part of your journey until you are re-united once more with those you love.

I want to thank you for your bravery, dedication, service and awareness of the importance of kindness to animals. Even in death we, as a community, as a state will stand by you and fight for your justice, not with excuses but with pride, loyalty, honor, valor and passion. We will fight the way you would Amy and give back to you what you gave to us. "What a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs". God Bless you and thank you for fighting the good fight, forever you will be in all of our hearts.

As the Clerk of the Court for Baltimore County, I had the distinct honor of administering the oath of office to Officer Amy Sorrells Caprio in 2014. She clearly upheld the oath she recited in serving all of us both diligently and faithfully. A true dedicated public servant. God bless you Officer Caprio. May you rest in peace. I extend my thoughts and prayers to family, friends and fellow officers.

We have many fond memories of celebrations at Hollyn's home and Amy was with us. Our greatest sympathies are with you all. As difficult as this time is and as hard as it is to see beyond this moment of tremendous grief, may all these fond memories carry you into your tomorrows. Success in life can be measured by the hearts that we touch and Amy was extremely successful, touching many many hearts and lives. She made the choice to live her life helping others with kindness and love, and now all those people will carry her on throughout their lives, especially those who had the honor and pleasure of personally knowing her. What a wonderful legacy and tribute to her to have so many carry her on in their lives. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.
