"His Final 10-42" 

In Memory:
~ Nathan Lee Reaves ~
Deputy Sheriff
Lawrence County Sheriffs Department (AL)
July 30,1977 - October 18, 2001

His days always began with a "10-41",
he was always ready to take on more crime.
The same routine for the past six years,
but he got used to it over time.

Day in and day out he gave it
his all and he did his best.
Never stopping to think that this could be
the last time he straps on his bulletproof vest.

Another day passes and once again
he has protected and served.
But never once really getting
the full recognition he deserved.

He had a full life but there was
so much left for him to do.
But on October 18, 2001, "LR 9" made
his Final "10-42"
