Dennis "Slim" Pickens was a Texas Peace officer and was dedicated to law enforcement is whole life. He was my mentor through the academy and was there the first day I put a badge on. He had nerves of steel and never lost that cowboy lawman mentality. Rest in Peace Brother.

Cody, Misty and Blake -there will never be another man like your father. He was so down to earth, country and hard headed. He always stood his ground with respect to others. I will remember him just as he looks in this picture - cowboy hat, white shirt, blue jeans and a smile that would go from ear to ear. He is the only person I know that would represent himself in a civil court of law without an attorney and have a judge scratching his head and agreeing with him. Your father studied the law almost as much as he did the Bible. I feel certain he was given a special place to rest with our Lord and Savior. Now, I say this to your father, "Go ride high on that mountain, your work on earth is through." Rest in peace - I tip my hat to you.
