Reflections for Sergeant Jason Lannes Sheppard

You are a hero, Sir and will be remembered as such. My thoughts and prayers go out to your wife, family, friends, and the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. I lost my son the same way you gave your life. He'll be with you as you walk the streets of heaven. God Bless...

Sgt. Sheppard,
My heart breaks for your family & friends as I know the pain they are going through. I'm so sorry that your life has ended way too soon. I pray the Lord will wrap his loving arms around your family & carry them through the difficult days ahead. The holidays will never be the same again for your loved ones but I hope one day they can find peace in knowing you are in a better place. God Bless You!

Dear, dear Sheppard Family, and especially Shelley,
Please accept my sincerest condolances at the loss of Sgt. Sheppard. Our family knows too well the agony, pain, and shock you are all experiencing at this time, having lost our beloved Trooper Jon Parker last year. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all; although right now you feel that your world has caved in and all is black and bleak, life will get better but, as you and we well know, will never be the same. Dear ones--family, friends, and colleagues-- cling tightly to our Lord, who truly is the God of all comfort. Of that I am sure.
With heartfelt sympathy,
Debbie Brewer

To the family, friends, and officers that knew Sgt Sheppard, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you face the trying times ahead of you. Please know your not alone.

Here I am, lost in the light of the moon that comes through my window
Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divide the thorns from the roses
It's you and the roses

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way when I see your eyes
Now I'm living in your afterglow

Here I am, lost in the ashes of time, but who wants tomorrow?
In between the longing to hold you again
I'm caught in your shadow, I'm losing control
My mind drifts away, we only have today

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way
I will sacrifice 'til the blinding day when I see your eyes
Now I'm living in your afterglow

When the veils are gone as I let you go, as I let you go

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way, I will sacrifice
Now I'm living in your afterglow

Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divide the thorns from the roses
It's you who is closest

In Loving Memory...
For those who didn't know Jason, I can honestly say it was your loss. I met Jason a few years ago when he started work at the sheriff's office. He came to my shift, and went to work like he had been doing it for years. We became pretty close over the few years I have known him. We shared many of the same interests and dislikes. We even decided to wreck our patrol cars about a month apart, both of us going to calls involving knives. There were many nights at work that we sat in our cars, window to window, reminding each other why we do the job we do. If in the many years we are on this earth, we help but one person, we have helped make the world a better place. Jason helped a countless number of people during his stay here in this world. He has made a mark that will last in many peoples lives. Jason became on of my closest friends on the department and I discovered that he enjoyed the other great passion in my life. Singing. If you never had a chance to hear jason sing, again it will be your loss. He had a voice that drew the attention of an entire room when he began to sing. Jason was a great friend, an extraordinary officer, and loving husband. He will be missed dearly and will not be forgotten.

Jason gave his life unselfishly so that others could remain safe! That is a sacrifice that is not made very often in todays world, and those that put their own lives on the line should always hold a special place in your heart and in your prayers.

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.
