Grady, I think of you often and of how we worked evening shift together. Those are cherished memories. The city will be renovating our police building and naming it in your honor. It will serve as a reminder of the dedication and service that you provided and of the type of man that you were.

Lt. Pam Uffelman-Brown

Your heroism and service is honored today, the nineteenth 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.

Ptlm. Lamb,

Today I honor you for your service to the people of Cedar Hill and the great State of Texas. After reading the reflections on this page for you, it is clear that you are an inspiration to so many. Even though I never knew you, I will never forget. Rest easy, brother.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

My brother I can't believe it has been 17 years since you left us, yet your memory is still so strong in our minds. When we left the academy we all thought we'd still be here, all of us together forever. I just want to let you know you still walk with me everyday I work my shift and live my life. Your life taught me many things that I utilize still today and now I share with those who were like us in 1988. Thank you my friend. Mary and I both miss you dearly.

Wow, what does one say to a friend that has been gone all these years. Well little brother, every time someone brings up your name I reflect back to that horrible night and Paul's call. In fact I can still see all of us standing around the surgery waiting room when we received the news that you were gone. You will always be in our hearts and mind.

I think of you often as I go through life. I owe you a lot for getting me in to the Explorers in Dallas. We all had some great times that changed my life. Thank you.

My wife was searching the net and came across this page and showed it to me today. Thats strange because I was justing thinking of you while looking through some old photos the other day.

I can not think about my days in the 302nd without remembering you. You were a good friend who could always make me laugh. Some one I could trust to watch my back, a dedicated family man, Soldier and Police officer.

Everyone in our squad was devistated when we lost you.
It was my great honor to serve in the honor gaurd at your memorial service. I wish you could have stayed with us longer.

Please know that everytime I put my uniform on and walk out that door for work, I think of you. It makes me keep going to work.

I retired from CHPD in December 2004. It was just too busy for me there.

I now work at Milford PD in S. Ellis County.

It's been over 15 years that you have been gone, and I still grieve.

I salute you for your service and honor you for your sacrifice.

A hero never dies....

Rest in peace, hero.

Grady, it has been 15 years since you left us to be in the presence of the Lord. I think of you and our times in Honduras and the MP Corps. I use your devastating accident as an example to young officers during weapon safety classes. Be with God, and God Bless.

Officer Benjamin Woodruff
Rockwall Police Department

Grady yesterday was 15 years since God called you home. I think about you often and wish you could know how folks here miss you. Brian's son is a beautiful image who carries your name. You would be proud.

Sergeant Michael Oswalt

Grady, I guess its because it is so close to the date you died; I thought of you today. I thought of your family and I said a prayer, hoping they were o.k. I still have pictures of you in my album from when we were in Honduras, just before you had to go.

Sergeant Neal Maranto
North Richland Hills P.D. Texas

Grady, I wanted to tell you I have named my son after you. Grady Joseph Scholz was born November 21, 2001. He is a great kid, I'm sure you guys would have loved each other. I wish you wish you could have been around to finally see me get it together. I have been working as a Border Patrol Agent for the last 4 years. I think of you daily and look forward to seeing you again.
