To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birth place of my beloved fallen officer. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both their pain and pride are forever.

Jimmy, I was about 10 years old when you left home to attend Oak Ridge Accademy and then to join the Navy. With that you became my fourth brother to serve in WWII. I mention all this because it was in those days that I considered all my big brothers as my heroes. As time went by you became a hero to our parents as you took the time out of your busy life to look in on them as often as you could. In fact, as they continued to age, they moved to Mt. Airy so your helpful visits could be more convenient and frequent. During that time you were also serving Surry County citizens as a Deputy Sheriff. Jimmy, we all know about your last heroic act and we also know that you would have said you were just doing your job. Big Brother, you will always be loved as a good man and remembered as a hero.

To my dad,

As Father's Day is approaching, I dedicate this reflection as a 45th year tribute, as seen through the eyes of your 8 year old daughter in 1963. These memories, I cherish.

When you walked into the door of our home, I ran to you with much excitement and anticipation, as you picked me up and lifted me to what seemed a mile high ceiling. What delight it was as my brother and I sat on your lap watching cartoons together. Or as you rested on the sofa after a hard days work, we would giggle and laugh as we played "tug of war." Each meal time was special, as I remember you saying almost daily, "this is the best meal I ever eat." It was evident to all that spending time with your wife and children was a priority. Openly, you displayed love and pride for you family, community and country. When you spoke, people listened with respect. Your good natured smile and laughter was contagious, and you saw the better side of everyone and every situation. When called upon by friends for a helping hand, you were neverfailing. The ultimate sacrifice you made to protect our community, I'll always appreciate. I miss you and am proud you were my dad!

With love and honor,
Susan

The policeman stood and faced his God,which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?
The policeman squared his shoulders and said.
"No, I guess I ain't because those of us who carry a badge can't always be a Saint."
I've had to work most Sundays
and at times my talk is rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...
though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got to steep.
And I never passed a cry for help
though at times I shook with fear,
and sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.
They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much, but if you don't...I'll understand"
There was a silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman.
You've borne you burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets.
You've done your time in Hell"
