Brother Of Murdered Sheriff Reaches Out To Lacy Family

The murder of a Clay City Police Chief on Wednesday brought back haunting memories for the brother of a Southern Kentucky Sheriff who was killed in the line of duty five years ago.

Pulaski County Sheriff Sam Catron was gunned down April 13th, 2002. Catron's brother, Lewis, was headed to Clay City on business Wednesday, but it turned personal when he found out Chief Lacy had been murdered.
"You start thinking of the family and where you was at that time and where they're at now, it brings back the memories," he said.

Catron says, for him, five years after his brother's murder there are still days the memories over come him days like today when similar tragedies take place. As the Lacy family begins to grieve, Catron says he'll be there because he's been in the same situation. "It gets easier with time but you never forget em," he said.

    Our church family wants to send the Lacy family Gods blessings. Although the death of your loved one seems more than you can bare at the moment, take comfort in knowing that he is in heaven now with loved ones from the past and with the one that gave his life for all of us. What an impression that Chief Lacy has left on communities from all over! What a testimony! We are praying for you throughout your difficult time. The Bible says: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou are with me." Chief Lacy faced the evil head on yesterday just as many days before, but the Lord was there with him at that very moment. What a wonderful thing to know that he woke up in the arms of the one who died for us! God bless!

    Randy Lacy was my friend, he knew everyone and loved everyone, I never ever heard Randy speak ill of anyone, he would tell stories of things that had happened in his life that were funny, but he never talked down to anyone, I can remember things that he done for me that no other would have done, He stayed with the situation until the job was done. Randy will be missed, because, I don't think no one could ever replace him, My family loved him, and we will miss him everyday of our lives,Its' so sad something so precious that all of us as small town come to depend on and love has been taken away from us by some one that can offer nothing. My heart is empty and my soul is searching for God, Knowing Randy is in God's hands is the only comfort I have. I truly hope all the best for Ruthie and her family,and I hope they can find Peace in knowing this. God's Speed

    It's hard to imagine things happening like this in our world. I know that Randy was a Christian and God called him home--The prayers of the Germantown, Oh, First Church of God are with the entire family and community--May God provide you with an inner peace during this difficult time

    My sympathy goes out to the family of the Clay City Police Cheif who was shot and killed on Wednesday. I continue to pray for the Lacy family. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU!
