They were doing their best to help someone else....that's what heros do. May God bless Sgt. Harrelson's family & friends and help them during this difficult time. May he help them lean on each other for comfort and remember all the good times they shared. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

Survivor of Trooper Calvin E. Taylor

Please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Thank you Sergeant Harrelson for a job well done. Please continue to watch over us and protect us as only you can. You will forever be at our side and in our hearts.

For those of you who still have loved ones with us please take the time to tell them how much you appreciate and care about them.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.






On behalf of the men and women who serve and work for the Georgia Perimeter College Police Department, our thoughts and prayers are with Sgt. Kurt Harrelson's family, friends, and co-workers with the Lafourche Parish sheriff's Department.

God Bless. Now you can walk Heaven's beat.

Officer Johns
Georgia Perimeter College Police Department

To the family, loved ones, friend, and coworkers of Sgt. Kurt Harrelson, you have my deepest symapthy. It is so tragic to have a life cut short on the way to rescue another one's life. It makes it twice and difficult when two "brothers in blue" suffered the ultimate price.

What is sympathy? It is thinking
More of others than yourself
Counting hearts of fellow mortals
Of more worth than paltry self
Acting for your comrade's pleasure
Giving without stint or art
It is a blessing every creature
With your hand and voice and heart.

Your job is done, you have ended your tour, rest now, "well done, thy good and faithful servant"

My thoughts and prayers are with you!
