On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC-especially during the Gulf War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Sir, I never met you, however I did meet you Aunt Linda yesterday in Louisville, KY. She came up to me and thanked another trooper and myself for our service. She then told me that her nephew had been killed in the line of duty as a South Carolina State Trooper. She then told us how great of a person you were. Your story is still being told and you are not forgotten! God Bless you and God Bless you wonderful family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first 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.

I am glad the Camden PD is contining its memorial ride and are now honoring two heroes for I feel this is the selfless choice you would have encouraged them to make. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

It took from the day it happened until now for me to gather the words to say about this tragedy of L/Cpl Jonathan Nash...... SGT Ed Corey, SGT Pam Moore, Gayle Godbold Pitts (widow of Merl Godbold), and myself of the Camden Police Department created this ride along with Merl's children and friends. We created this ride to honor Merl's life, dedication to protecting the citizens he so honorly served, and continuing to make an effort in taking DUI drivers off of our roadways, Jonathan did just that while he was working, and we must continue to honor him just like Merl. I have asked myself a million times, where was Merl on that beautiful Saturday morning in Camden SC. But we cannot look at it that way, Our Good Lord and Merl had a reason for everything and that is he wanted another hero up there with him. After months and months of hardwork planning this event little did i know what would happen. Just like the previous rides i would give the Motorcycle Troopers a tshirt of the ride. I gave Jonathan his, and asked him if he needed another one. His reply was "I would love one for my daughter", and he said i will see you when we get back and get one. Little did i know i would never have the opportunity to give him that tshirt. He was a hero, and we are going to continue to honor him. We have thought several times if we should continue this ride in the future. We are and not only will we honor ONE hero but TWO. Jonathan you are a hero and always will be. My heart and prayers are with YOU and your family. GOD BLESS and Please bless all of us that where the badge.
