I can remember sheriff sizemore visting my grandfarther Jake Farris. Sometimes talking about things. We all thought very honerd to have him stop and visit with us. We respected sheriff Sizemore and was deepley saddend when he was killed. It was such a tragie happening. I can still remember seeing his patrol car outside and him and my grandad talking and laughing. The Law is one of the few things that stands for anything. Sheriff Siezmore did a great job of representing the Badge and what it means.
