Rest in Peace Patrolman James Thomas. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Pilot Mountain, NC.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

I still miss my Dad after 44 years. During National Police Week my memories of Dad's death are brought back to my memory just as if it just happened again today. I've had alot questions thru the years that I wish I could've asked my Dad, but I could not. I'm sure that other families feel the same and have gone thru many of the same things my famiy has gone thru. Please remember to pray for our law enforcement community daily.....Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man purseth: but the righteous are as bold as a lion. KJV

I just wanted to let your family and friends know that there are many out there who know the pain that you feel today. My brother Roger was killed 4 years ago today June 2nd. You are in the thoughts and prayers of many folks who care. I pray that God will bless you with many precious happy memories to help fill your heart "especially today".

You are remembered today by a Durham native and the mother of a fallen officer. My son, Larry Lasater who was also born in Durham, died when shot on April 23, 2005 during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers while serving with the Pittsburg, California Police Department.

James, your sacrifice is not forgotten. Rest in Peace. Your memory is honored and revered 43 years after your death and will continue to be.

I know Pilot Mountain is a small community which must have been devasted by losing three officers in three years to gunfire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service James gave to his community and the citizens of North Carolina, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on June 2, 1966.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
