It takes a certain type of person to enter a line of work that you know once you get dressed for work you are looked at as a hero to some, but to the larger group a threat and as a person they dont want around and want to cause you harm. But everyday we do it because its what we choose and what we want to do for ourselves, our family, our fellow officer, and for the public. You Sir are my hero for the life you lived and from reading other reflections the family you raised. I can't say I understand what your family feels or the South Carolina Highway Patrol because thankfully I havent had to encounter that, but I hope your son know's that he to is a Hero in my eyes for living his life and becoming a LEO himself. I truly believe thats a heroic act and I want to Thank You both for the job you do and fighting the fight. Trooper Johnson watch over us as we continue the battle here and I will see you on the other side.

Jeff, we think and talk about you always. I want to thank you for being there for me during my husband's near fatal(on duty) car accident. You were always at the hospital at the right time. You showed me "the ropes" on how to handle David's case. I was 2 1/2 weeks into recovery of a very serious surgery. I was sick as a dog and wasn't supposed to leave my bed. You were there for us in everyway. You would pick me up at my home and drive me to the hospital so I could be with Dave. Missy was always shocked when she heard that you had spent that much time in ANY hospital. She said you didn't like hospitals. But you were there for your buddy. It takes a lot for my hubby to trust people and consider them "real" friends. But, you and him created a very, very close bond. It was strong & real. Jeff, I remember the day that you called me at work. You were putting together a surprise get together for David at O' Charley's Restaurant. That was about six months after the accident. That night was the very first time that my husband smiled since the night off the accident. You called me again at work. It was about a month & a couple weeks later. You were setting up another surprise party for my husband. unfortunately, that 2nd surprise party never came to be.
I'm glad that I called him often to tell him how very grateful I am for all he has done to help out David Sr, David Jr. and during these difficult times. Hope 2 meet again....well, not2 soon. We love and miss you.

9 years today dad, I cannot believe it has been this long. As I sit here writing you I have so much to say with not enough space to write. There isn't a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind, or a day I get in uniform that I don't think about and you and pray you look over me. I love you dad and I hope you meet me at the gates when its my time to come, until then look over us.

Sir:

You changed my life the day you stopped me with a suspended license when you asked me if I wanted to be nervous every time a policeman got behind me. I straightened my life up as a result of the talk you gave me. Thank you Cpl. Johnson.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you as I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Going on 8 yrs. It still doesn't get any easier as I wish it would. I miss you dearly dad and wish so much that I could have you here. There is so much of me that reminds me of you everyday. As I sit here and read everyones reflections I can't help it but cry, only if they could really see the dad I knew. It kills me not being able to hear your voice anymore, I'm sad to say I forgot what it sounds like and I hate that. Not only did I lose my farther I lost my bestfriend. Ashton is getting so big dad its hard to believe she will be 15 this yr, makes me feel old. One day I will be there to hear your voice and be able to see you again. Watch over us daddy I love you

Trooper Johnson, I visit this site very often to remind me the dangers of the job we do. I have 22 years in this job. Myself and all my partners have walked over to a vehicle many times to interview passengers during this type of stop, just as you did that day. I wonder how many people have thought about killing me at that instance. Probably a lot!! Average folks just don't realize the dangers of what troopers do. I wish every person would stop here and read these reflections and realize that we are human and that we have families and friends that love us very much. And that we are not unemotional, hard core, hard headed men and woman that hate everyone.
I have shed tears just reading your families comments. What can we do buddy?? Just keep reading about the heroes of this site, like you, and hope that God will give strength to the families. You must have been one heck of a Trooper and more importantly, and more importantly, and more importantly, A GREAT FATHER AND HUSBAND !!! Rest in Peace.

Nobody really understands to be in law enforcement ,every time you go on shift death is with you . every time we go on shift we know that today could be our last. But we do it because we get to help and protect so many people and there is no better feeling in this world than that .God bless the soul of this hero and I know that all of the many people out there that he helped and saved from being hurt or killed all thank him for his sacrifice also..

Its been 7 long years now dad and we are about to go through the trial part again. Each day goes by and it kills me to not hear your voice, or knowing that when I get off work your going to be home. No one knows how good you were to me and ashton, you were and still are the best dad anyone ever needed. The big 21 is coming up in November, so the other day I did what I always told you I was going to do, filled out my papers for the patrol. You have no idea how hard it felt to fill it out with you not here beside me helping me, but who knows you might have been. All I ever wanted was for you to see my graduate patrol school, and my dream got taken away from me. No one understands how hard it is to learn everything on your own that your farther is supposed to teach you, but you did a great job dad while you were here. I love you dad, I will see you heaven.
