Our law enforcement community has lost an amazing officer, man, and friend.
TDCJ Sgt. Elbert Manor was an intricate piece to crime fighting in Freestone County and several surrounding counties. He was THE MAN from TDCJ that was contacted when the FCSO or other agencies needed tracking dogs and horses to track down dangerous person(s). For years, I worked with Sgt. Manor and always knew I could count on him. He and I rode a many of horses together, jumping creeks, running into tree branches, pushing through briars, in the dark of night, as we followed the TDCJ dogs to catch who our law enforcement was after......and we caught them every time. And, Sgt. Manor was always first and in the lead. I'm not sure I'll ever have a better man to ride with chasing them dogs.
Sgt. Manor, you did good, bud. I'm not sure how the sunset looks as it goes down on those beautiful meadows in Heaven as you overlook it on horseback, but I know what I'm envisioning as I think of you.
