Reflections for Master Trooper Larry Lee Huff

It hardly seems possible that it has been twenty five years since you left us. You were such a faithful husband, father, trooper, and Christian. You have been sorely missed, but your Godly example has given us many happy memories and a sure pathway to follow. Thank you for your steadfast love to your family. Our love for you remains until we meet again.

Uncle Larry,

What an amazing man you were and what a wonderful family you and Aunt Glendah raised. This week we travel to Kansas to be there as a highway is dedicated in your name!! Thanks for the example you were to all! I will see you again someday soon...

I miss you, Dad, and was more proud of you than I could know -- certainly more than I ever told you. You left me with so much and I will always be grateful. Your life and the honor shown you in death is a lifelong gift to me and the rest of us who loved you so much. I am eager to see you again someday and I believe that as I keep the faith that you loved and taught me, I will!
I know I speak for all of your children.
Love,
Randy

God Speed I remember the day this tragedy occurred. I was in school at the time and was a member of a SAR team. It was a tragedy.

"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.
