I recently found this posting of Paul Anderson's line of duty death. Harris County Constable Precinct 5, Ted Heap's office will be honoring our blue heritage by featuring photos of family members who have served as a peace officer. Although he passed before I was born, I will be adding Uncle Paul as one who will be honored on the department's Facebook page on May 2, 2023 as part of our recognition of those who have gone before us. I have fond memories of my Aunt Elsie, and am sending love to Susan and Paul his children.
