Reflections for Inspector J. C. Shelhorse

No passage of time will ever erase your service and sacrifice. Rest peace always.

When a law is passed, it needs someone to enforce it and you stepped up to do that. Tragically, it cost you your life and the killer paid for it for a mere 7 years. That simply added to the tragedy of 101 years ago today.

God Bless you, Brother and may your rest be and always remain peaceful.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. 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

How proud you must be that your descendants have carried on your legacy of protecting and serving.
