Thank you Joseph Suddarth for encouraging words tonight in this crazy storm. Friends pls Heed these words. I honestly feel this way a lot as an emergency manager, but so much credit goes to the incredible men and women that help in our (Telfair County)time of need. Thank you all.

"And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about."―Haruki Murakam

From the Laurens County GA Sheriff

For 22 years, rain or shine, deputies have gathered around this spot for a time of prayer, reflection, and for those who knew Kyle Dinkheller to pay respects. That’s 22 years that we wish we didn’t have to. This memorial is maintained by the Sheriff’s Office to honor one of our own that gave the ultimate sacrifice for their community. Our prayers are forever with the family of Kyle Dinkheller. We will never forget.
