So very sorry to hear about Mr. Frasher. I used to see him at Hardy's often. Nice man. May God be with his family at this time.

Jessie was a police officer in Louisa when I was growing up. He was always more than fair to us boys in our hot rods. I always respected him and how he performed his duties. Rest in peace officer Frasher.
