Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Joseph Carter

I respect your service and dedication. My great-uncle was shot in the line of duty in the early 1900's in Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY. I am also distantly related to you. Know you have served well.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 8th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. 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.

Rest In Peace

Dear Joe:
While I think it's sad that it took 80 years to get the attention and honor you deserve, perhaps better late than never is appropriate. You have served the people of Kentucky well, sir, and as a result, now, you live on forever.
May God hold you close to His heart, and take joy in the fact that you died doing what you took an oath to protect others who cannot protect themselves. Sir, I am honored and it's a priviledge to be the first officer to leave a reflection for you. Rest in peace, brother. We now have the watch.
