1999 Correctional Officers Memorial Service - Page 4
"As we remember the life and the spirit of each of these employees, let us see our own lives dedicated to a higher cause, let their remembrance lift us higher in truth and love. These eight men and women have shown us how to live a fuller life. We feel their presence ever near, as if they are carrying the banner, leading the way, State Correction Secretary Theodis Beck told those gathered at the service. "These eight officers answered the call for public service with the North Carolina Department of Correction when they demonstrated their willingness to help protect the citizens of this state and help improve the lives of North Carolinians. For not much money and for terrible hours, on a daily basis, they put their lives at risk for two simple reasons -- to protect and help others."
