Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Larry Sherwood Kolb

This time last year the whole family was in D.C. for Police Week. Your death has changed all of our lives so much. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't miss you, your laugh and your willingness to help anyone and everyone. We have tried to help others that have experienced the loss we have. We are helping to set up a COPS South/Central Texas Chapter. There have been so many other Texas Lawmen that have died in last few years and months. Your Sister, Sherlynn, stared volunteering at the Sheriff's Association of Texas, to look after you name on the Lost Lawmen Memorial there. Now she works full time for them. I guess she just needed to be closer to you. Your oldest Nephew Jason is graduating from High School. He and Jared miss you so. Jason wrote a poem about you called "SUPERMAN". He qualified to go to the National Poetry Slam in Michigan with it and it continues to be a real insiration to all that get a chance to see him perform it. Your name and the names of 228 other peace officers were added to the Texas Peace Officers Memorial this week. We will attend a candlelight ceremony on Thursday evening and the dedication on Friday at the Capital in Austin. We will not forget you and the other brave officers of the world. We know you continue to look after us. THANKS Larry!

Tom Kelley, Brother In Law

Deputy Kolb, your watch is over and our department salutes you and your tour. May you watch over the gates of heaven, as you watched over the citizens of Kendall County, Texas.
