Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Jeffrey Alexander

Hey bud. I came here to leave a message for my dad, and got to see your smiling face. You are so missed. But I can tell you that your influence and memory lives on. I love to see updated from Lindsey. The boy has grown up so much from the little runt I once knew. The family is doing well. Her brother followed in your footsteps. You would be so proud of all of them. Just know that you are still so loved and missed and you made a difference for so so many. Rest in peace officer, your watch is done. Forever loved and missed, Never forgotten

Deputy Jeffery Alexander It's been almost 10 years since we lost you , but not a day goes by that you are not thought about.
Your fellow deputies are making rank, and those of us that had rank are now mostly retired. Law enforcement is changing daily , along with our great nation. It was pleasure to work with you ,and you will always be remembered by me as friend and mostly as my brother in blue.

Jeff, I am thinking of you today as I do everyday. We miss you more than I could ever put into words. I would give anything to just be able to put my arms around you and tell you I love you. Tyler is growing up to be a wonderful young man. He talks about you often, and that makes Mom and I very proud. You made a lasting impression upon him. Cheryl and Brian are doing well. I love and miss you son. God Bless you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first anniversary year 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

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Deputy Alexander, especially to his fiancee. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Jeffrey he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Jeffrey's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Jeffrey's life was about so much more than the way he died. Jeffrey will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Deputy Alexander, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eight & a half years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"
