Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the 95th 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 94 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
