|LAWRENCE SHAW was one of the most honorable men I
ever come in contact with, as a child I grew up
next door to the SHAW family,James was the
policeman of Jonesboro, and my barber as a child, I
can remember Lawrence coming home from Korea, and
then working at Luther Keys for ever so long, then
next time I see him he is working for the town of
Jonesborough, lifesaving crew, anytime time there
was an event in town,Lawrence Shaw was seen
working, you never heard a ill word spoke of him
and he was always helping somebody. I am so glad to
have known him and his family. he will be missed
many.Rest in Peace my friend, your service here is
