Reflections for Police Officer Jasper Columbus Miller

I am the proud great-granddaughter of Jasper Columbus Miller. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. As a young girl, my grandfather Uel N. Miller... oldest son of Jasper, reflected on the memories he had as a child who was only eleven at the time his father died in the line of duty. It was a terrible loss for my grandfather. And, every time I hear of a fallen police officer, no matter where they live in the nation, my heart skips a beat knowing that there are families out there that have lost a loved one who selflessly put his life on the line to protect others. RIP great-grandfather... you will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

85 years is a long time. Officer Miller was slain in the line of duty in 1926. The Norfolk County Police Department and the the South Norfolk Police Department merged in 1963. Now we are the Chesapeake Police Department. The Chesapeake Police Department never forgets the sacrifices made by our officers and their families. Today we honor Jasper Miller, with our badges draped. We continue to build our department on duty, honor, and valor as our predecessors did.

My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.

My husband Joe and I only know of the brave acts of Jasper from Mary Ella Miller Deshields, Joe's Grandmother and Jasper's daughter. He is a true hero to our children and grandchildren. Jasper is very well remembered by the Deshields-Miller family with much love, fondness and admiration.

You made the ultimate sacrifice 80 years ago. Most citizens have never heard of Norfolk County, even though they live in it today. Most citizens have forgotten your bravery. However your fellow officers of the Chesapeake Police Department will never forget you.
