To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 22nd anniversary year 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.
Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.
Maura, Cody and Callie: I am glad that the resentencing resulted in the death penalty, but am sorry that you have been waiting for justice for so long and that you had to relive the events of your husband and father's murder during the trial. I have spent the last several years battling for justice in California against legislators who support bills that advocate for murderers over victims, for cop killers over cops and most recently, a ballot measure to abolish the death penalty in California. Although the ACLU and friends lost in November, they will be back and that is what is so frustrating...we are always having to fight for justice that juries and judges have given us. How can we ever have peace in our hearts when we constantly have to be vigilant?
Cody, you and my grandson have the same name in common. Our Cody was born 2 1/2 months after his daddy was killed. I will tell him about you.
You are all in my heart's embrace.
