When I attended Douglas Street School in Cartersvile, by the door there was a white marble bench honoring Joe Ben Jenkins. His home was across the street. I don't know the location of the bench. If anyone knows and would email a photo, I would be so grateful. I am 78 and one of my memories of school was sitting on that bench.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
