Rest in Peace Deputy Rube T. Mattox. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Wood County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your ancestors and the men and women who now serve the Wood County Sheriff's Department. I also Pray that even though your murderer escaped justice on this earth that the hounds of hell are forever gnawing on his bones.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 112th 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

You are in the thoughts and prayers of many folks who care. I pray that God will bless you with many precious happy memories to help fill your heart "especially today".
