Glenda,

It has been a long eleven years, some things change, some things stay the same. What has changed is your no longer here with us. what is the same is I miss you more and more everyday. I just want to honor you today, to say you will never be forgotten, never. Glenda, Cameron is 20 years old now, and he has been with me since he turned 18. I know how proud you are of him, he is in College and he is a very strong and handsome young man.

Thanks to eveyone who has left reflections for my sister, she was a very special person in our lives.

To those of you have lost a love one, please know your familes are in my prayers.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Glenda,
You will always be missed but I know that you are
with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I enjoyed working
with you and I know that if you were still alive your sweet
smile would still light up your face.
I will always think of you and I pray that your son
is growing up to be a swell person just like you.
Love you always,

To Deputy Sheriff Glenda Joyce Carmack and all her loved ones, especially her son Cameron:

On this the seventh anniversary week of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

My heart goes out to all of your family. You all remain in our thoughts and our prayers. Cameron, you have so much to be proud of with your beautiful mother who safeguarded so many others.

Reading the loving reflections about your beloved Glenda gives us some understanding of what a kind and honorable woman she was, and what she meant to her family and friends. I don't know if the creators of this web site ever envisioned how many of us would communicate with each other, and with our angels through these reflection pages. But we do and I find such comfort in it.

Glenda, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Deputy Carmack. I am humbled by your valor, courage, and dedication.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Deputy Carmack gave to her community and the citizens of Louisiana, and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on April 12, 1999.

Phyllis Loya, mother of fallen officer Larry Lasater, Pittsburg PD, eow 4/24/05

~~~To those I Love and Those Who Love Me~~~

When I am gone, release me, Let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled alone.

So grieve a while if indeed you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart,

I won't be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll
Hear all of my love around you soft and clear

And when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say,
"Welcome Home"

Glenda "Honey" It has been eight months since you have gone to haven. I can not tell you how much you are missed. Things are so different now. This will be our first Christmas without you with us. I know you will be watching from Haven. Glenda I hope you know that I'am tring to do the things I know you would want. Cameron is such a strong little boy. He still does not understand why you are gone away from him but he knows you love him and that you are in Haven watching him. Everytime we hear your song he will say "Mama is here" and I know you are. We come to pay respect to you often. Cameron talks to you, I think it is his way of letting you know he loves you. Mama is so sad it scares me. No one really knows what to say or do anymore. I am so glad I got to see you the day before the wreck and tell you that I love you. I do realize you are in a better place and I hope you look down of us from time to time and see how Cameron is growing. Glenda I promised you I would be there for your little boy, we are all doing what we can to help him. I will always keep you in my mind and in my heart.



Merry Christmas

Your Little Sister

Though I did not know Deputy Carmack, I know some of the reasons she wore the uniform. We at the International Association of Women Police salute you Deputy Carmack. We also send our prayers to your loved ones, friends and co-workers. Godspeed Glenda.

Officer D.C. Hillier

It's a terrible thing to lose a friend and coworker, but I lost more than that. I lost my right hand. Glenda, we miss you more than you will ever know. Please forgive us for not saying the things that should have been said before it was too late. God bless you!
