"The trauma experienced by myself and my family has been overwhelmingly difficult. Dealing with this tragedy is tough enough on a personal level. The challenges we face will be daunting but rest assured that I am bound and determined to uphold the legacy of my husband, Sgt. Terrence Carraway. He dedicated more than 30 years of his life to serving and protecting his community as well as his brothers and sisters in blue. This should not and will not go unnoticed. The Terrence F.
