Upon offering a birthday wish to my dearest friend, we reflected upon our families and since his nephew and my son-in-law were both NC Highway Patrolmen I mentioned that my son-in-law Trooper P.M. Stevens was up for promotion this week .My friend who was recently married mentioned that his wife's father had been a Patrolman in the High Point area years ago and was unfortunately killed in a highway accident back in 1963. To the Pace family, I 'm sure the memory of your husband and father is a true blessing of the wonderful work these men and women do for their communities. God bless all of these noble heroes and God bless Trooper L.E. Pace for his service.
