Your heroism and service is honored today, the 12th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember him for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I hold his family in my heart's embrace today. I am sure he is especially proud that his family continues his legacy of serving and protecting..

Rest In Peace
