744,

It's been a few years since I last wrote. I am no longer with GSP and now with Coweta County Sheriff's Office. I do however miss my Blue shirts and still keep up with some of them. Alot has changed around GSP, always people coming and people going. My cousin is a trooper now and the pride he has to wear that blue shirt you would be thrilled to see. He is like the old school troopers of course there are few of those these days, but as I'm sure your watching over them.
I am planning on getting on the road soon here in Coweta. I am slightly nervous about it but also there is nothing more I would rather do than serve the citizens of my hometown.
It is coming up on you 8th year anniversary in Heaven and we are still missing you every second.
I just wanted to write a few lines and tell you hello. We miss you

I got the privilege of having a conversation with Corp. LeCroy just a few days before his end of watch. I work at the QT at Lower Roswell Rd. and N. Marietta Pkwy. I had seen him come in a few times but never got a chance to talk to him. That night he stopped in to fuel up for his shift and we had a lengthy talk about me wanted to become a law enforcement officer. I was just 19 and knew I wanted to pursue that career path. He helped me by giving me some pointers and even told me to ask him any questions along the way. He was very helpful and i could tell that he loved the job. Unfortunately I never got to have another conversation with him about the subject. Still to this day, I have not forgot what he said to me. It has stuck with me all this time. He was and still is by far one of the reasons why I have finally decided to switch careers and begin law enforcement. I only hope that I can be half the officer that he was and to take the time to talk to some 19 year old kid working the counter at a gas station about doing something great for not only himself, but also his community. Thank you Corp. LeCroy. I will never forget that night.

What's up man, my son and I take a yearly father and son trip and we just got back from Jacksonville FL. The drive was nice and relaxing. Dylan is always ready for this trips because I let him buy and eat whatever he wants. It rained some days and he wanted to walk in the rain ( so guess what we did) walked in the rain. Remember this is a trip that I allow him to pick what he wants to do. We went over to the beach and watched people fish from the pier and a lot of them were catching sharks. We did fish but came up empty, but it was fun seeing him happy. Ever year we go to a different place and already thinking about some places in 2015 LORD WILL. I often think of your boys and will carry them in my heart everywhere Dylan and I visit. I know your are watching over them and keeping them safe. I hope your are relaxing and not getting on the other angels nerves because we know you like to talk. :-) Well man I just wanted to drop you and few lines like always and we will chat again. LORD WILL sign Paul, Shonterria and son Dylan Stokes

I'll never forget our first meeting. You came to assist us at Ft. McPherson where I was Asst. OPS Chief. Your spotless patrol car and impeccable uniform, while insignificant to many, spoke volumes to me as a law enforcement manager. First impressions are lasting. While I will never forget your name, I will celebrate the sacrifice you made for the people of Georgia every December 27. Gone but never forgotten.

Good morning, Happy Birthday. I know today isn't your real birthday, but this is the day our Lord called you home. I know you had a great Christmas and planning a New Years party with all the other angels. I have my son until Jan. 7, and we are having a ball. I often think of your boys and pray that they grow up and be the man their father was and still is. I have been doing a snow dance but all we got was rain. ( I MUST WAS DOING THE WRONG DANCE ) Well man you enjoy your day and we will chat at a later date Lord Will. Paul and son Dylan Stokes

Good morning or good evening, I don't know how it works in heaven. My son and I do a father and son trip every year. We just got back from Hilton Head SC and we had a ball. I thought of you and your baby boy and hugged my son tighter. I can appreciate the bond you had with your boys. Dylan is 11 and I am enjoying every moment with him, because we don't know what tomorrow may bring. I went skydiving and I was only 14,000 feet and the clouds were so nice. I know you are enjoying the weather there. Its beginning to get cool here and feels great. They have started putting the blue and gray cars back on the road and you know how it goes, everybody is trying to trade their sold color charger to get the blue and gray. I still have the solid color black 2008 with 116612 miles on it and I am not complaining, because I don't pay for any repairs or gas. Well I just wanted to drop you a few lines or two or three or four. I haven forgot how you helped my in computer classes and I am graceful., I just hope I don't have to get another one, if so I will be messed up without you.Get some rest and I will check in at a late date, Lord Will.

Thank you for that kind reflection #149. I did have the honor and privilege of meeting TFC LeCroy, and it didn't take me long to realize what a true warrior he was. From the times he backed me up, to the times I assisted him in vehicle pursuits, I always knew when I saw the car with #744 on it that that it was going to be a good day. I don't think the people of Atlanta ever knew the courageous and skilled job this man did day and night. He was a nightmare to the criminals in the area. I miss him, and I am sure that many others miss him on the Atlanta Police Dept. and the Ga State Patrol..... may your children always remember and know what a true hero you were and the sacrifice that you made #744.

with Respect and Honor,

TFC LeCroy,

I am currently sitting at post 24 reading all of the reflections with tears in my eyes. I know quite a few of them that have left some of the sweetest comment and I am proud to be working with them. They are a great bunch of guys. But, I am sure that you already know that. I know you are up there watching over us and I am glad to feel your present with the dispatchers and the Troopers out there on the road risking their life to protect others. I grew up with the wonderful Big Blue and I am proud to be apart of this family now. I am honored to just be sitting here right now. Your story is why I am here, it is why I constantly check on each of these Troopers. It is why I sit here and stare at the map and check the times and do 10-4 checks every 8 minutes. I pray for your family and all these Big Blues out there everyday.
I just wanted to thank you for everything that you have done and I know I never got to meet you but I will one day.
Rest easy 744.

With love.

LeCory,

It's been a while since we have talked, my most rememberable moment of you was the last time we were standing over the trunk of your car after we chased that SUV up Perry Blvd., I was so glad to see that Blue and Gray turn around behind me... He thought he had us but, he didn't... He couldn't get over that fence fast enough... The rest, we know, since you documented it in your report... When the call came out, I already knew who it was...YOU, and I could not accept it... now, I have... But, I do no forget, for you were an unforgettable guy... I just knew you would make it, and I can still hear the radio traffic advising otherwise... But, now, I know that you did... Your dad told me how much you respected us out in Z1, that meant a lot, I just hope you know how much we respected and miss you... We are hanging in there like a loose tooth without you, but one day, it will all make sense... I thank the lord for a real good time, just know I will never forget!!! 1103, show me en route with GSP Unit 744... RIP

I was working the night in which you ascended from the earth two years ago. I remember radio advising that a GSP unit was stolen, that a trooper had been assaulted. It was soon after that I learned of your fate. Your sacrifice is remembered to this day. RIP Corporal LeCroy.
