Reflections for Sergeant Jason Lannes Sheppard

Tonight while on patrol in the Wagner area I stopped to pay my respects. I never knew you but was there the day your family and friends laid you to rest. From some of the things I have heard about you, you were a great husband great friend and awesome deputy. RIP SGT.

I looked you up after seeing your father left a message on a fallen Deputy of my husbands department.. across the country - but living in the same small blue world. I pray for your family, your father, your wife, your friends. I don’t know them - but... I know them.

Well Jason, it's been another year! You are missed by all, especially during this time of the year (we miss your songs and beautiful voice). I listen to you singing "If Heaven" quite often when I'm riding in the truck. Can't wait to hear you sing again! Rest in Peace and we will take care of all the crazy things going on in the world right now.

10 years today...... last night I didn't realize the date but I guess you were talking to me. Earlier in the year Vicky from records finally had enough nerve to issue me your old ticket book. I told her that I would write Lannes's name (my K-9 I name after you) on every ticket I wrote so that it was like you were still writing the tickets. Without realizing that date, I wrote a ticket with your book for the first and put your name on it. As I write this, my eyes water at the thought we are still connected to one another through incidents like this. I miss you brother and will see you again and we can laugh at what you did to me last night............

Jason, tonight just a few minutes before midnight marks the tenth year you left us and went on to be with our FATHER in Heaven. Know that we all miss you even if the reflections have slowed down. You are thought of and talked about quite often and are truly missed each and every day. We all look forward to the day we join with you and the rest of our family in the presence of our FATHER.

8 years and still remembering! May God look down from Heaven and place His hand on all our nations police officers who are now faced with the great task of keeping the peace and keeping all of us safe during this time of great turmoil. May He protect them and keep them safe while they perform the duties they are sworn to do. May GOD have mercy on those who have turned away from Him.

I am so thankful to Rep. Bill Taylor of Aiken for getting all that needed to be done in order to get my son honored & remembered for his service to Aiken county. The I-20 interchange will renamed after him on May 16th at 10:00am. This has been a long time coming. I am again so thankful to Rep. Taylor for being a good man & representive and not letting the ball drop as it has in the past. It's good to have someone represent you that really cares. Jason gave his life to help others and I DO NOT want him forgotten. I know that night will always be yesterday to me.

It took me 6 years and 2 months to put somthing on here, not because I didnt wont to but because I didnt have to, because you already knew I loved you and miss you. You know we were alike when it comes to somthing like this. Its like writing a letter to you and knowing you cant write back. But you know we talk to each other everyday in some shape or form. Not a day goes by that I think about you. I know you probrably thinking how I found the time to sit and peck on this computer, (Ha Ha) and write this. Well Im in Florida working night shift with daddy. Yea out of town, you know im a home body that likes to stay around the farm, but needed to come sop up some of this gravy money LOL. Everything is good around the house. I got a friend looking over it for us. Katelyn is doing well, yea driving , oh my. Growing up fast. Brandi and boo, yea i said boo thats Jade. She is a true Sheppard let me tell ya. She is a card, just like me and you. I know Im sopose to say you and I, but im not writing a english paper, Im talking to you. LOL. It just aint the same with you gone. I remember the day of the accident, when i was on my way home from work and i saw all the emergency vehicles, and I called you and asked what was going on. And you told me. Then I got there and saw you puttimg on your reflective vest, before you got in the highway to direct traffic. Even though you was on your way home, you didnt have to stop but it was in your blood to stop and help. I understand because we are just alike when it comes to helping people. So i left and started home, and you called me back to ask me to do somthing for you when i got home. It never crossed my mind that I would never talked to you in person again. I hadnt got 10 miles down the road before the accident happened. Im just thankful that I was the last person to talk to you. You had your real LAST CALL with your brother. Love you man!!
Yes im still deer hunting, put 2 on the wall the past 2 years, and you were with me both times. You never will be replaced with anyone. Me and keith hang out and hunt and cook wild game. You know me, you, and Scott C played ball and grew up together, we were all like brothers. Me and Scott hang out all the time messing around on the farm. Boo loves the dirt just like me and you did. She will get plum dirty, but you know thats good for ya. Im gonna tell ya somthing bout brandi, man she can cook, im pushing 200 lbs, i bet you would be bout 225 lol, you already had by about 25 lbs lol.
Well im gonna get off of here, its 4:30 am and pop will be here soon, even though he wouldnt say anything. I could keep writing but you know the deal. Talk to ya soon, tommorrow, like we always talk. By the way tell grandaddy and Fred i said hey.
Your Brother,

I was thinking about you today brother. One of the Officers in my home town was killed the other day and I am attending his funeral tomorrow. Not a day goes by I don’t think about you and all our other brothers and sisters that have been taken from us. Just wanted to let you and your family know you are not forgotten...Godspeed Jason

" Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you". Deuteronomy 31:6

Mr. Sheppard, Jason's father, this is the verse that comes to my mind each year when I see you reflection on Charles' page. This verse also reminds me how brave our sons were each time they reported for duty, they put on the armor of God and went forward into battle. When I read the newspaper clippings of Charles death, now, I see the difficult pain our boys went through with the political entanglements yet they show up and got the job done. I can not thank you enough for your continued courage to comfort us all, even in your own sorry. Jason was taught by a great master!
God go with you, protect you and keep until we glorify him face to face.

Thank you for letting your love light shine!

Although it has been five years since you were taken, I know the pain felt by your family will always be there. A parent should never have to experience the loss of a child; but, unfortunately, it happens even to "us" regular people. Thank you, Mr. Sheppard, for writing on my son, Eric DeWit's, page. He was a wonderful young man, as your son was, and I would give my life just to have him back with his wife and daughter. Althought it's been almost 9 years, it feels like yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always. You are never alone.
